About RMP16

Reiss Performance Assessment

The Reiss Motivational Profile (RMP16) is an uncommonly comprehensive self-discovery tool that was scientifically validated, can be taken online, and is widely used internationally.

The results reveal a person’s most important needs, desires and goals, in addition to providing all the information of a type indicator or personality assessment.

Founder, Steven Reiss, Ph.D. has collected scientific research data for over 30 years as he developed the Reiss Profile (RMP16).  Over 80,000 people in 4 continents have taken the profile including 1,100 coaches in 15 countries.

Mr. Reiss is Chairperson and Founder of IDS Publishing. He is a Senior Fellow of Dartmouth College and a Yale University Ph.D. in psychology. He completed a clinical psychology internship at Harvard Medical School Department of Neurology/ Massachusetts General Hospital Child Psychiatry. He is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and recipient of five national awards for research, clinical services, and leadership, and a recipient of two Illinois recognition awards for volunteerism. He is a former Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Ohio State and Illinois-Chicago.

Lowell Wightman, Ph.D., brings the Reiss Profile full circle for executives and athletes when he applies practical methods and strategies to the mental conditioning plans. “I call him Coach Wightman, because he brings psychometric theory into creating real training tools. I am a better executive because of his training.”, Mary Peterson, CEO, Retail Jewelers Organization, Inc (RJO).
