  • Do not analyze or compare the questions!

Yes! As long as the individuals have the intelligence and reasoning abilities to be able to understand the questions and respond properly. However, there may be cultural differences in the meaning of words and this obviously would affect the end results.

Can an individual answer Worley's ID Profile questionnaire incorrectly?

Yes! There are two possibilities should one not agree with their individual profile.

  1. Learned behavior. Perhaps the person is the exact behavior as Worley's ID Profile report indicates but they were "tampered with" or "molded" into someone else. This of course, would create a tremendous amount of stress, anxiety, unhappiness, and even anger.

Subjective behavior, which Worley's ID Profile identifies, is the inborn or genetic temperament one has inherited from birth. The individual will always revert to and be more comfortable when they are functioning from their subjective temperament style. Their subjective temperament style is steady, stable, and consistent regardless of the environment.

What temperament, psychological, behavioral, or personalities classifications does Worley's ID Profile use?

Worley's ID Profile uses the standard classifications of other instruments: melancholy, phlegmatic, choleric, sanguine and introverted sanguine. Blends of the five are used also, i.e. phlegmatic melancholy, choleric phlegmatic, introverted sanguine phlegmatic, etc. Your individual identification in each of the three areas of Social, Leadership, and Relationship is determined by where your individual score falls on a continuum of zero (0) introvert to nine (9) extrovert. Each of the three areas of Social, Leadership, and Relationship are evaluated in the two areas of Demonstrated and Desired behavior.

In each of the three areas Social, Leadership, and Relationships there is a linear bar graph representation like this:
