1) I spent about 15 minutes trying to get to the test, I gave up
2)The quality was poor,no link to the test or main section of the web page
3) Little if any learing or teaching use here
4)not user friendly at all

Technical Remarks:

very limited and not technical at all-needs work

Too much of the site is available only for a fee.

My Assessment in the Curriculum students actually used the Keirsey Temperment
Sorter in an Internet-delivered lesson. The instrument provides an experiential
basis for students to "understand" instruments designed to provide information
about personality (in this case, character and temperament). The students
enjoyed the class exercise. They also learned about "tests and measurement"
from completing the questionnaire.

I am adding another comment (Feb 4, 2001), based on a Distance-Learning Seminar
I just attended. The participants in the College of Health and College of
Business, said they use this instrument in their (highly Internet-based)
lessons. One instructor uses this online form for helping students learn about
project management (and in the process of forming teams for the course). The
health college teacher uses this in an assessment course.

Technical Remarks:

First-time users have no problem with completing the questionnaire. Nor did
they experience any problems with their online electronic inputs to me regarding
the results/uses of the Keirsey instrument.

This is an interesting site, but I did not agree with my identified temperment

Similar to many scales,it reads like astrology. Provids only positive models which while true don't provide extensive useful correlates.

Technical Remarks:

Scales are based on comparitive rankings and either/or bivariate choices. Newer scales are based on continuous if not linear bases so you can select on a line between two values.

The Keirsey Temperment Sorter II is an online questionnaire that contains 70 items. Students complete the questionnaire and immediately receive a profile that provides a rough indicator of their temperment. Numerous interpretations of temperment indicators are available at this site for students to use to interpret the results of their questionnaire responses.

Easy to use!
