WHAT THE QUESTIONNAIRE MEASURES

The PGIS is a self-report instrument that yields a single scale score for personal growth initiative. Personal growth initiative is a person’s active and intentional involvement in changing and developing as a person. The PGIS consists of nine items that are rated on a Likert scale from 1 = Strongly Disagree to 6 = Strongly Agree. Item scores are summed to obtain a total PGI score. There is evidence that the PGIS is strongly positively related to psychological well-being and negatively related to psychological distress. Reliability and validity evidence has been strong. The PGIS takes about 5 minutes to complete, and there is no time limit.
