Research and the PMAI Assessment

Conducting Research with the PMAI®

Research using the PMAI® assessment and theory is conducted around the world in various methodologies: experimental, correlational, and qualitative in a range of areas such as correlations with the MBTI® assessment, autistic children, women and leadership, and the tarot. We are interested in promoting and supporting research by providing researchers and graduate students heavily discounted access to the instrument and assistance with research design and data analysis, if needed. The manual detailing psychometric properties of the PMAI instrument is available here.

There is a formal proposal process to submit to our research department if you're interested in using the PMAI instrument in your research. However, it's always a good idea to send an email to the Director of Research first with an introduction and summary of your study (research@capt.org).

Please submit a proposal describing your study to research@capt.org in the following format:

1. Project Title

2. Investigators and Academic or other Affiliation

3. Brief Introduction & Rationale for the Study

4. Research Question(s)
