TAIS Overview

  • TAIS is used around the world for the selection and training of high-level performers in sport, business, and the military.
  • TAIS measures the specific concentration, and interpersonal skills necessary for effective decision-making, and for the coordination of mental and physical processes in high-pressure situations.
  • TAIS results allow you to identify the specific environmental conditions likely to facilitate and/or interfere with an individual’s ability to make effective decisions and perform at the upper limits of their physical and mental potential.
  • TAIS results also allow you to identify the specific behaviors an individual needs to change to improve performance.
  • The Attentional and Interpersonal Style (TAIS) inventory, is a 144 item self-report questionnaire that measures twenty different concentration skills, personal and interpersonal attributes. Those specific concentration skills and personality characteristics can be thought of as the building blocks upon which more complex human behaviors depend.

Scores on the TAIS attentional scales allow you to identify an individuals concentration strengths and relative weaknesses. Scores on TAIS personal and interpersonal scales allow you to anticipate the types of performance situations which are likely to interfere with a persons ability to control their level of emotional arousal. These two pieces of information, combined with an understand of the concentration skills and interpersonal characteristics required by any specific performance situation will allow you to anticipate how a person will perform under pressure.
