Abstract
This paper develops a questionnaire to be used in determining the necessity of various human factors to the successful performance of any particular job. Included in the proposed questionnaire are fifty-eight characteristics and a scheme for rating the variables. Additionally, a program is developed for analyzing the data collected via the proposed questionnaire. The Friedman Two-Way Analysis of Variance by Ranks is used to detect significant difference between the characteristics, and, given a difference exists, a method similar to the Duncan Multiple Range Test is employed to separate the several characteristics into significance groups, the various groups being ranked on an ordinal scale.
