The Core Assumptions of the Singer-Loomis
- Personality is a product of Nature (biology) and Nurture (experiences with environment)—rather than one or the other.
- Psychological change (individuation) is normal and on-going throughout life.
- Measurement, quantitative information about magnitude expression of a concept, is preferable to categorical assignment, forced choice between pairs of global concepts.
- Consistency of data collection is important—all items of an inventory should be similar in form and be keyed to a specific situation.
- Assumptions need to be minimized and made as transparent as possible.
Design of the Inventory
- New focus of measurement—the extraverted and introverted expression of each of Carl Jung’s Four Functions = eight Type Modes
- Independent Variables—each Type Mode treated as if independent of the other seven Type Modes.
- Measurement based on five-point scale, rather than forced choice.
- Highly consistent measurement with all eight core variables measured in the same twenty different situations.
- Scoring process greatly simplified by elimination of complex formula required by traditional bi-polar model.
- All information acquired from client’s responses is incorporated, nothing is discarded or ignored.
