LEONARD, Let's Explore our personality based on Openness, Neutral, Analytical, Relational and Decisive is a personality instrument to conduct personality tests on human beings. The description and characteristics of LEONARD are also presented. An offshoot study was conducted on selected respondents to determine the appropriateness of incorporating LEONARD.
