Political Performance Indices
of American Presidents

Test description

    Fate of people, destinies of nations, and history itself are determined to a substantial extent by political leaders.
    When electing a national leader, voters frequently base their decision on the image created by mass media and professional image makers; they also tend to take into account only current events and tasks. This, unfortunately, can result in bringing to power a politician who eventually damages the country's position or even causes national or international cataclysms.
    Performance of political government can be measured by the increase of the quality of life in the respective country during the time of ruling.
    Traits of many political leaders of different countries in various historical periods were analyzed by the RAP test and juxtaposed with the performance of their governments. This approach revealed four personal characteristics on which success of a political leader crucially depends.
    These four properties of the personality of the political leader can get the following names:
  • Rationality
  • Authoritativeness
  • Adventurousness
  • Inspiration
    The named features of the personality determine what underlies the political activity of the leader, on the basis of what factors and how he estimates the situation and makes a decision.
    These four traits are determined by the test Political Performance Indicator.
