The Duniho and Duniho Life Pattern Indicator
Netmail: The Holodeck BBS 1:2613/336
The DDLI is a personality indicator measures for four different sets of
preferences that result in a total of sixteen different psychological
types. These four sets of preferences are
How we orient our lives:
Extraversion vs. Introversion
How we prefer to gather information:
Sensing vs. iNtuition
How we prefer to make decisions:
Thinking vs. Feeling
Which sort of lifestyle we prefer:
Judging vs. Perceiving
These 16 types correspond to the psychological types that Carl Jung
described in _Psychological Types_. They also corresond to the 16
Myers-Briggs types measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
The DDLI asks you a series of multiple choice questions and calculates
its results from your answers. It asks you to rank each of your
answers on a scale from 1 to 7. It also asks you questions on other
sets of preferences that are supposed to match various combinations of
the above four sets. This is so it provides a check on itself, as it
can be fallible.
The DDLI comes with extensive support material. Included are full
length descriptions of each one of the 16 types, the "Personality Type
Summary" by Jon Noring, and my own description of the Life Pattern
A "No Preference" option for each question.
