The Pseudomorph Scale (PMS)

The Pseudomorph Scale (PMS) is a psychosocial measurement instrument to measure consciousness or general intelligence. It measures individuals levels of integration of structures, and balance of processes in thinking, feeling and acting, which are needed for decision making and problem solving activities.

Our definition of consciousness:
In our understanding, consciousness refers to the accessible concepts we utilize to make decisions. The more concepts we are able to access at the same time, the better our decisions will be.

What you can learn from your results

The results show the gaps and contradictions in your “reality construct”. These barriers prevent you from utilizing your true potential. By identifying deficient concepts, you can develop an individual training plan to improve your consciousness.

Comparing the PMS with aptitude tests

There are already too many tests out there to measure strengths and weaknesses, so why do we need yet another one?

  1. They can’t measure productivity
  2. They can’t avoid the observer error (measurement error)
  3. They can’t measure decision making bias
  4. They measure “aptitude”, PMS measures “attitude”.
  5. Attitude determines altitude.

Skill and abilities in problem solving are usually measured using “aptitude tests” like MBTI, 16PF, MMPI2, Strength Finder, Reiss Profiles, Birkman and many others. The problem with those tests however is, that they don’t differentiate between absolute and relative strength. Absolute strength is the overall strength of a skill, while relative strength is the ability of finding the best solution in a specific situation utilizing all skills together. With other words, relative strength integrates all resources, while absolute strength focuses on one skill only, independent and not integrated with the others.

Measuring aptitude is useless, because reality changes so fast that whatever you know today, is outdated tomorrow. The critical aspect is therefore not what you know today, but how fast you can change an learn something new.

This is the domain of “consciousness” and “general intelligence”.
