Least-preferred coworker (LPC) questionnaire

Fiedler developed the least-preferred coworker (LPC) questionnaire. This questionnaire cold-warm, boring-interesting, and friendly-unfriendly. Respondents were asked to think of all the coworkers they had ever had and to describe that one person they least enjoyed working with by rating him or her on a scale of 1 to 8 for each of the 18 sets of adjectives.
