California Q-Sort for Adults

 

Author: Jack Block

This instrument includes one hundred cards, each displaying a descriptive personality statement that observers arrange according to how well they describe a person. The Q-Sort method has been proven useful in two decades of psychiatric and psychological research of individuals in both clinical and non-clinical contexts. It measures personality assessment of adults and other ratings of personality. This can be referenced to a wide variety of diagnostic and conceptual "prototypes," as expressed by the CAQR, to correspond most closely to the described individual's personality characteristics. The cards have been adapted for applied usage.
