GPOP (Golden Profiler of Personality)

Irena Wagnerová

This review presents a new psychodiagnostic method, the Golden Profiler of Personality (thereinafter only GPOP) which relates to popular MBTI questionnaire. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was developed during the Second World War by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. MBTI has never been officially translated into Czech. The author of the original version of GPOP is John P. Golden. The Czech version, published by Hogrefe – Testcentrum, was prepared by Václav Havlůj, Simona Hoskovcová and Markéta Niederlová. The original test was published under the name Golden Personality Type Profiler by Pearson Education in 2005 (Sněhotová, 2010). As well as MBTI, the GPOP uses four scales, but adds in the scale for stress reaction. The method stems from two theoretical approaches: Jungian typology and Big Five. It has been found out that there is a conceptual overlap between GPOP and Big Five dimensions.
