The Bass Orientation Inventory generates three scores, by means of twenty-seven forced-choice interest and opinion items, that have shown relationships to various industrial and academic criteria. Based on Bass' theory of interpersonal behavior in organizations, it measures self-orientation, interaction-orientation, and task orientation. It can be used for consulting, team building and personal effectiveness in occupations and academia.

For each question, the individual is asked to indicate which of three alternatives, A, B, or C, is most true, or most preferred, or most important to you. A, B, or C is thus written in the MOST column. Then the individual chooses the least true or least preferred of the three alternatives and write its letter in the LEAST column.
Individuals must mark one alternative in each column. If A is entered under Most, then either B or C should be marked under Least, and so on. Individuals are cautioned not to debate too long over any one statement; a first reaction is desired.
