All charts offer "inside information" that conveys talents, complexities, wonderments, limitations and vulnerabilities of the points. They unearth hidden feelings and add freshness , realism and depth to Self-study, presentations and discussions. Information for each chart was gathered from dominant CS/AS/AR/CR individuals, their significant others and from non-dominants.

These qualitative methods assure that each point "speaks for itself" and make the descriptors "live."

This powerful, declarative poster features an essay by Dr. Gregorc exalting the unique spiritual qualities of children. The essay begins:

We need a new, wiser, holistic, and more spiritual attitude towards children.

Its body focuses on the basic understandings about children. And it concludes:

Children are not our subordinates. They are co-conspirators breathing the same pneuma as us and contributing to a world far beyond present comprehension. Ultimately, in our webs of relationships, it is the children who will write, rewrite, and edit our scripts of life.
