Discover the "instrument(s)" you can play in your team with this free online questionnaire


The Orchestra game

As a speaker on teamwork in teams and a certified Belbin trainer, I have used Dr. M. Belbin’s team roles as a starting point for the instruments. This short test should not only give you a lot of fun, but also give you a careful indication of the personal instruments (team roles) that you can use when working with others.

This short instrument game is not a replacement for the original Belbin team roles questionnaire. The original Belbin team role test is reliable and validated, can be completed based on job requirements, allows 360 degree feedback from colleagues and can generate team, function and organisational reports. I can’t do all that with this free online questionnaire. Please handle the results with care and if you want to play it safe, I can recommend the extensive, professional team role questionnaire. The cost is certainly not an obstacle. More information can be found on

Consider this questionnaire and its results as a start. Think about the “instruments” you can play in your team, talk about them with your colleagues, see which way you will go to develop from “beginner to virtuoso”.
