The following questions ask about your child's typical behaviors, feelings, and likes and dislikes. For each one, select the answer that seems most true for this child. In some cases you will feel that both are true or neither are true, but it is important that all questions are answered. You need to select the answer that is better, or even ever-so-slightly better, for every question in order to get reliable outcome results.

All choices concern differences that are believed to be equally valid ways of reacting to the world. There are no right or wrong answers--just answers that are true for your understanding of this child. Try not to spend too much time on any one question. There are many questions for each temperament category, and over the large range of questions your choices will become clear.

There are 76 questions in this Sorter, and it typically takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Since you will have to start over from the beginning if you don't finish in one setting, be sure that you have enough time now. Lastly, be sure to click the "submit" button at the end. If that action does not go immediately to the feedback screen you may have some unanswered items (marked in red). Answering all items will take you to the next screen.
