FIRO-B Instrument

“The FIRO-B (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior) instrument is a powerful personality assessment that measures how you typically behave with other people and how you expect them to act toward you. Its interpretation can dramatically increase your understanding of behavior in areas such as:

  • How you come across to others—and why this may not be the way you see yourself
  • How and why conflict develops between well-meaning people
  • How to understand your own needs as you interact with others
  • How to manage your own needs in most interpersonal interactions”

—(Waterman & Rogers, 2004)

The results are categorized into three area: Inclusion, Control, & Affection. These are also measured in two different dimensions. Below is a diagram to help understand this concept:
