Norman Lee Buckley

Facet5 Author

Norman Buckley is a specialist with over 40 years experience in test development and organisational work. His work focuses on delivering practical organisational benefits underpinned by deep psychological understanding. Norman graduated in Psychology in Sydney and gained initial experience with an Australian consulting organisation. From 1978 he ran his own UK company, pioneering the use of custom-built assessment and development processes. He has worked extensively on biographical and personality data analysis.

Norman spoke about the assessment Facet5 which was launched in January 1990, based on ten years of research in personality theory and is now a fully web-enabled, multi-lingual approach to personality. The base personality assessment drives a range of diagnostic tools covering individual differences, leadership, corporate culture, team working and the environment. Norman’s current interests focus on analysis of national character, cross cultural assessment, the creation of culture free ability measures and the interaction between personality and problem solving style.
