Concerns About Aggression

Low scorers handle their feelings well and are unlikely to be disruptive. High scorers can be aggressive, hostile, disruptive, and have poor control of their anger.

Scores of 8 and below on the Aggression Scale indicate that the applicant’s responses give little or no concern that the applicant will exhibit aggressive behavior towards others on the job. The score suggests that the applicant handles hostile feelings well, keeps a level head, and is unlikely to be disruptive at work through anger or aggression.

Scores of 9 to 10 on the Aggression Scale indicate that the applicant’s responses raise concerns about the handling of anger and hostility. The applicant may be less than completely in control of anger and hostility at work. Areas of potential
concern should be further explored using the CBI behavioral interview question(s).

Scores of 11 and above on the Aggression Scale indicate that the applicant’s responses raise serious concerns about the handling of anger and hostility. The applicant is likely to be hostile, be ready to anger, have poor self-control, and be disruptive at work.
