Dr. Worley is a 15-year U.S. Army veteran and was wounded in Vietnam.  Dr. Worley has many years of personal experience in dealing with problems that plague corporations, educational institutions, families, and individuals. This personal experience, coupled with his extensive educational background, has earned him the reputation of being one of the best-qualified consultants and trainers in the trade today.  Any individual or corporation who seeks reliable consulting or training can be assured of receiving the best professional services available from Worleys ID Profile, Inc. 

As a clinical therapist with twenty-eight years combined consulting and counseling experience, Dr. Worley has tried virtually every psychological, behavioral, temperament, and personality questionnaires available in todays market.   

Much time is spent during the initial intake process assessing individuals before an effective treatment plan can be put into place.  Dr. Worley was searching for a comprehensive profile that would help him assist professional counselors helping families and individuals to better understand themselves based upon their uniqueness.  This required a simple questionnaire that would measure their needs and desires. Dr. Worley could not find any psychological, behavioral, or personality profile anywhere that would accomplish the task. 

What Dr. Worley got from all the tests, profiles, instruments, and questionnaires he tried, besides being thousands of dollars poorer, were complex graphs, charts, demeaning individual labels, captivating adjectives, and very little benefit to his individuals or him.  Every test certainly had its good points, but who wants to administer ten different test to each individual? 

The frustrations that Dr. Worley encountered during the last three decades were that most assessments and profiles measure and focus on objective behavior.  The objective behavior approach is acceptable for focused therapy, behavioral modification, or application in a vocational setting, whether it is the mega-corporation or the private individual practice. When one is actively dealing with observable behavior that is of a conflict nature, emotional or intellectual, the necessary changes that need to be made within that persons behavior are obvious. In these situations behavioral modification is necessary and in most cases will produce acceptable results, although the behavioral modification will only be temporary.  Temporary results are realized because the root needs and desires of the individual have not been dealt with nor identified properly.  Therefore, negative behavior and conflict with co-workers and friends still remains without permanent results.  Instead constant interruptions dealing with the manifestation of the negative behavior continues to cost corporations, large or small, families, and individuals billions of dollars annually. 

When someone demonstrates unacceptable behavior because their needs and desires are not being met, an objective behavioral profile is not sufficient in identifying those problem(s).  The objective profile that identifies ones personality is based upon the environmental focus of the individual answering the questions.  The focus could be as spouse, significant other, boss, friend, co-worker, employer, relative, or the local service station attendant.  This focus leads one away from the real issue(s) causing the individual inner turmoil.  Subjective behavior can only be determined by a subjective profile: a profile that subjectively measures the foundational needs and desires of the individual.  Once those needs and desires are identified and fulfilled, the personality or behavior of the individual becomes normal and acceptable instead of being constantly in conflict with others.  Dr. Worley could not locate a profile that would meet the specifications of measuring a persons needs and desires based upon that persons foundation. 

After years of research, beginning with the Classical Behavioral Patterns and moving through a process of evaluating the most popular instruments on the market, Dr. Worley decided to develop Worleys ID Profile (WIDP).  The need for a profile of this nature became obvious after years of counseling and consulting.  Dr. Worley feels that the most significant behavioral problem existing today is the lack of people understanding his/her basic needs and desires based upon his/her behavior make up. 

The intent and objective of Worleys ID Profile is not to measure intelligence or mental disorders, but to measure needs and desires that are basic to the individual being profiled.  There are many other fine instruments for measuring intellect, mental disorders, and personality types.  But there is lacking a questionnaire that will get to the heart of the individual and identify his/her based on who he/she are foundationally.  Assisted by consultants, counseling professionals, and computer programmers, Dr. Worley asked the question,

"What would the ideal profile look like?"

Months later the creation of a temperament profile was complete and the answer to the above question was proclaimed. It's name: Worley's ID Profile!

Worley's ID Profile (WIDP) is the answer. WIDP stands for:

Worley's W
