The self-assessment tool was developed to something we call “focus on the hierarchy” (OH) to measure. Orientation to hierarchy affects the way we view the world. We believe that people vary in their orientation to hierarchy, some people are more likely to seek and create hierarchies in their social environment than other people. If we have a strong OH, we are probably looking for and the creation of hierarchies in our social interactions, especially in the economy. If we have a low OH, we are more open to the input of a variety of people. We also suspect that a person with a high OH probably withstand changes in the organizational structure and in particular those who lead, cajole more responsibility, more knowledge-based systems. There are 50 questions in this assessment, a score chart and interpretation of the data. The purpose of this tool is to detect and measure the differences between low and high OH.
