an inventory aimed to measure self-actualization. It contains 150 objects which each consist of two statements depicting values or actions. For each item, the involved party chooses the statement that best describes them. The POI is scored for 2 primary scales, those being support and time ratio, and also 10 sub-scales: self-regard, feeling reactivity, nature of man, synergy, existentiality, ability for intimate contact, spontaneity, self-actualizing value, self-acceptance, and acceptance of aggression.

PERSONAL ORIENTATION INVENTORY (POI): "The concept of personal orientation inventory was cultivated by Everett L. Shostrom, and American psychologist."
