I have no idea whether that particular test has been proven to predict correctly, however.
how can you validate leadership, self awareness or citizenship? IS this something that can even be measured?

I took a lot of survey studies in high school and honestly most of the time I answered how I thought they wanted me to answer and or to make my self somehow look better even though the test was anonymous.

If someone answer yes to "I know when someone is using misleading language"- how do you know he actually does? He might think he does but he doesn't or he may answer NO and actually has a better understanding then someone who answered yes.
