A paradox (from the Greek, meaning aside belief) is defined as a seemingly contradictory statement that may nonetheless be true. Another definition of paradox is a situation in which something seems to be both true and false. For example, consider the paradox: standing is more tiring than walking. According to Jungs behavioral paradox theory, a trait can be either constructive or destructive, depending upon other complementary traits. The Paradox Assessment is a simple instrument which measures people's preferences in four paradoxial pairs. These are: * Decisiveness and Reflectiveness * Directness and Tactfulness * Optimism and Scepticism * Logical and Intuitiveness
