The Duniho and Duniho Life Pattern Indicator
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
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 personality model.
Using the data I have collected from people, I have changed (and
hopefully improved) the questions. I think the DDLI will be
somewhat more reliable now.
When you quit the DDLI with option 6, it will give you the
opportunity to save your answers before you quit.
Added to the text that the DDLI displays.
The DDLI now writes extra text to the raw scores file, and it can
read raw scores files with extra text at the beginning.
The DDLI now has you indicate your type by selecting a number
instead of by writing it in.
The raw scores file takes up fewer lines, so that it is easier to
send across the Fidonet.
