MINI-MARKERS

How Accurately Can You Describe Yourself?
Please use this list of common human traits to describe yourself as accurately as possible. Describe yourself as you see yourself at the present time, not as you wish to be in the future. Describe yourself as you are generally or typically, as compared with other persons you know of the same sex and of roughly your same age. Before each trait, please write a number indicating how accurately that trait describes you, using the following rating scale:

____ Bashful ____ Bold ____ Careless ____ Cold ____ Complex ____ Cooperative ____ Creative ____ Deep ____ Disorganized ____ Efficient

____ Energetic ____ Envious ____ Extraverted ____ Fretful ____ Harsh ____ Imaginative ____ Inefficient ____ Intellectual ____ Jealous ____ Kind

____ Moody ____ Organized ____ Philosophical ____ Practical ____ Quiet ____ Relaxed ____ Rude ____ Shy ____ Sloppy ____ Sympathetic

____ Systematic ____ Talkative ____ Temperamental ____ Touchy ____ Uncreative ____ Unenvious ____ Unintellectual ____ Unsympathetic ____ Warm ____ Withdrawn

How to score the Mini-Markers?
Check signs and factors in the table below. Asterisk indicates which factor each item is scored on. Each scale has 8 items, as groupings below indicate. The group of items that have negative loadings are scored negatively (subtract their total from sum of positive-loading items, OR reflect their values [9-->1, 1-->9, etc.] before summing with positive-loading items. My preferred approach is to reflect values as appropriate, sum, then divide (for each scale) by 8 to arrive at the mean response for items on the given scale.
