This study aims at developing referential norms for Jackson personality inventory- second version. The sample consisted of 1464 individuals from university graduates, employees, and managers. Means, standard deviations, and T scores were extracted for the total sample and the sub sections of the sample. The results indicated that there are means differences between sub samples. Males in comparison to females; having higher means on the following dimensions: innovation, organization, social confidence, energy level, social astuteness, and risk taking, while females scored higher on the following dimensions: complexity, breadth of interest, cooperation, empathy, traditional values, responsibility and sociability. The results also indicated that there are differences between mangers and employees according to personality dimensions. The managers were higher on complexity, while employees and fresh graduates scored higher on the rest of the dimensions. The results of this study provide differential norms for Jackson personality test, and provide some indications of the ability of the test dimensions to discriminate between people. These indications provide evidence for the validity and the reliability of the test as well as the ability of the test to be used for employees' selection, vocational guidance and psychological counseling.
