Question 3: How do you motivate your team?

Add the options as a description under each question and assign the letters as multiple choices for the user. Here's how your question should look like:

3. Link Responses to Google Sheets

In your Google Forms, go to the "Responses" tab and click on the green Sheets icon to create a spreadsheet with the responses.

4. Create a Calculation Column

In the Google Sheets where your responses are collected, set up new columns for each personality type: Democratic, Autocratic, Transformative, and Transactional.

5. Assign Points

Write formulas to calculate the number of times each answer was chosen by a respondent. For instance, you can use the COUNTIF function to count how many times each type of answer appears for a respondent.

Here are the formulas for each column:

Democratic: =COUNTIF([Range of answers from a respondent], "A")

Autocratic: =COUNTIF([Range of answers from a respondent], "B")

Transformative: =COUNTIF([Range of answers from a respondent], "C")

Transactional: =COUNTIF([Range of answers from a respondent], "D")

6. Summarize Results

Add the results from each row to get the total count of answers corresponding to each personality type per respondent.

You can then determine the predominant personality type for each respondent based on which column has the highest count.
