Directions for Scoring the Leary Interpersonal Behavior Test
1. The test has a total of 64 points. 2. Each group (P, A, B, C, D, E, F, G) has a possible total of 8 points. 3. Test takers check each of the 8 descriptive words/phrases that describe them and count the total of checks for each group. Thus, if group P has 4 checks, the score for P = 4. 4. On the Interpersonal Behavior Circle the internal circle represents 0, the first concentric circle 2, the next 4, the next 6, and the last 8. 5. For each pie shaped piece of the pie (P, A, B, C, D, E, F, G), place a dot to represent the number of checks added up for each group (P, A, B, C, D, E, F, G) on the test on the line that represents 2, 4, 6, or 8. If you have uneven numbers of checks, place dots for those numbers (1, 3, 5, 7) in between the concentric lines of the circle. 6. Connect the dots around the circle to create a geometric shape that defines your predominant areas of interpersonal behavior. 7. If your score is low (2 - 4), it represents a moderate level on the particular quality. If your score is high (6 - 8), it represents a more extreme level of the behavior in question.
