Adjective Check List

Adjective Check List

A psychometric instrument used to assess a person’s psychological traits, based on a checklist of 300 adjectives and adjectival phrases from absent-minded to zany, and much in between, including active, cautious, determined, enthusiastic, intelligent, quiet, and so on. The test subject chooses those terms that he or she feels best describe himself/herself to others. The ACL is graded into 15 scales which reflect the person’s needs and wants and 9 scales for attributes, potentials, and roles.
