individual or corporation who seeks reliable consulting or training can be

ID Profile, Inc.
a clinical therapist with twenty-eight years combined consulting and counseling
experience, Dr. Worley has tried virtually every psychological, behavioral,
temperament, and personality questionnaires available in today’s
time is spent during the initial intake process assessing individuals before an
effective treatment plan can be put into place.
Dr. Worley was searching for a comprehensive profile that would help him
assist professional counselors helping families and individuals to better
understand themselves based upon their uniqueness.
This required a simple questionnaire that would measure their needs and
desires. Dr. Worley could not find any psychological, behavioral, or personality
profile anywhere that would accomplish the task.
Dr. Worley got from all the tests, profiles, instruments, and questionnaires he
tried, besides being thousands of dollars poorer, were complex graphs, charts,
demeaning individual labels, captivating adjectives, and very little benefit to
his individuals or him. Every test
certainly had its good points, but who wants to administer ten different test to
frustrations that Dr. Worley encountered during the last three decades were that
most assessments and profiles measure and focus on objective behavior. The objective behavior approach is acceptable for focused
therapy, behavioral modification, or application in a vocational setting,
whether it is the mega-corporation or the private individual practice. When one
is actively dealing with observable behavior that is of a conflict nature,
emotional or intellectual, the necessary changes that need to be made within
that person’s behavior are
obvious. In these situations behavioral modification is necessary and in most
cases will produce acceptable results, although the behavioral modification will
only be temporary. Temporary
results are realized because the root needs and desires of the individual have
not been dealt with nor identified properly.
Therefore, negative behavior and conflict with co-workers and friends
still remains without permanent results. Instead
constant interruptions dealing with the manifestation of the negative behavior
continues to cost corporations, large or small, families, and individuals
billions of dollars annually.
someone demonstrates unacceptable behavior because their needs and desires are
not being met, an objective behavioral profile is not sufficient in identifying
those problem(s). The objective
profile that identifies one’s
personality is based upon the environmental focus of the individual answering
the questions. The focus could be
as spouse, significant other, boss, friend, co-worker, employer, relative, or
the local service station attendant. This
focus leads one away from the real issue(s) causing the individual inner
turmoil. Subjective behavior can
only be determined by a subjective profile: a profile that subjectively measures
the foundational needs and desires of the individual.
Once those needs and desires are identified and fulfilled, the
personality or behavior of the individual becomes normal and acceptable instead
of being constantly in conflict with others.
Dr. Worley could not locate a profile that would meet the specifications
of measuring a person’s needs and
desires based upon that person’s foundation.
years of research, beginning with the Classical Behavioral Patterns and moving
through a process of evaluating the most popular instruments on the market, Dr.
Worley decided to develop Worley’s ID Profile
(WIDP). The need for a profile of
this nature became obvious after years of counseling and consulting.
Dr. Worley feels that the most significant behavioral problem existing
today is the lack of people understanding his/her basic needs and desires based
upon his/her behavior make up.
The intent and objective of Worley’s ID Profile is not to measure intelligence or
mental disorders, but to measure needs and desires that are basic to the
individual being profiled. There
are many other fine instruments for measuring intellect, mental disorders, and
personality types. But there is
lacking a questionnaire that will get to the heart of the individual and
identify his/her based on who he/she are foundationally. Assisted by consultants, counseling professionals, and
computer programmers, Dr. Worley asked the question,
"What would the ideal profile look like?"
Months later the creation of a temperament profile was complete and the answer to the above question was proclaimed. It's name: Worley's ID Profile!
Worley's ID Profile (WIDP) is the answer. WIDP stands for:
|I||Identity:||Identify Your Inner Needs and Desires
|D||Discovery:||Dare To Become All You Can Be
