About Dr. John W. Worley

Dr. John W. Worley, pioneer in the technology of self-awareness

After years of counseling, teaching, and corporate coaching using the best methods available, Dr. John W. Worley came to an astonishing conclusion.

Most people have no idea what they really want. Or for that matter, who they really are.

That’s causing a world of hurt.

Worley resolved to create a tool to fix that.

The outcome was a ground-breaking psychometric assessment, Worley’s ID Profile.  It is used worldwide with overwhelmingly positive reviews by corporate leaders, HR Department, clinicians, churches, schools, sports teams, families, and individuals.

In this book, Dr. Worley speaks for the first time about how he came to develop the WIDP, why it's radically different from other profiling systems, and how you can use it to help align your outer persona and behavior with your true inner expectation.

Expect miracles.


One of the most prominent consultants and trainers in the field of temperament analysis, Dr. John W. Worley tackles persistent problems plaguing organizations, often in the role of consultant to the consultants and coach to the coaches.

Dr. Worley, whose Ph.D. is in Marriage and Family Therapy, has studied extensively in the U.S. and in Israel.  A 15-year U.S. Army veteran, Worley was wounded in Vietnam.  Dr. Worley has spent 35 years in private practice and consulting to executives and organizations around the world and is also an ordained minister.

He is the author of Inside Insight (2019, HarperCollins), a book in which for the first time he reveals how he came to develop the WIDP.  

Dr. Worley lives in Massachusetts with his wife,  Barbara.
