The Harkey-Jourgensen family of Sorters (Early Childhood, Middle Childhood and
Adult) are modeled after the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Keirsey
Temperament Sorter. Items are identical to those questionnaires in format, and similar
in content but modified for age in the child Sorters. Results are reported as
Preferences, Temperaments and Types. These questionnaires were developed in a
University setting, using many hundreds of families for the child Sorters and over 350
college students, of a wide range of ages, for the Adult Sorter. Successful items were
selected through repeated testing and statistical analysis of results.
Our Kindle book (A Brief Manual for Teachers and Counselors...) has all of our detailed
information on the number of persons who had been tested by mid 2012 both in our
original samples and our online participants. Reported results include all correlations
between items within each subscale (these are uniformly high, as they should be) and
correlations between subscales which are low (as they should be). Standard reliability
measures are also included. To some this up very briefly, we found the Sorters to be
highly reliable measures of child and adult temperament. The statistics compare very
favorably with the MBTI and with the child sorter from that company--the MMTIC.
Since our statistical manual was published in 2012 we have had many thousands of
new Sorters taken online. We expect to analyze and include these findings in a revision
of the Brief Manual over the next year.
