The Gregorc Style Delineator is a self-assessment personality test for English-speaking adults. It is based on the theory that people understand the world mainly through one of four basic channels: Concrete Sequential, Abstract Sequential, Abstract Random, and Concrete Random. The publisher claims that knowing which channel is most representative of one's personality can reduce naivete, increase personal responsibility for thoughts and actions, and improve relationships. The test contains ten items in which the examinee ranks four adjectives from 1-4 depending on which are most and least descriptive of himself. Rank numbers are added for each group of adjectives that represent a channel and the results are graphed to show the magnitude of dominance of whichever channel scored highest. The examinee can then read a description of himself with relation to the following Frames of Reference: World of Reality, Ordering Ability, View of Time, Thinking Processes, Validation Process, Focus of Attention, Creativity, Environmental Preference, Use of Language, Primary Evaluative Words, and Negative Characteristics. Information about reliability, validity, and test development is not a part of the EAC East collection.
