Abstract (Summary)

This is a preliminary study of a proposed clinical Q-sort, the Adlerian Personality Priorities Q-sort (APPQs). This preliminary evaluation includes a review of the literature on Adlerian theory, the Adlerian concept of personality priorities, Q-sorts, and the use of the Q-sort in individual assessment. A typology of personality priorities based on a qualitative review of the literature is presented. A usability study with twenty-six participants examined the ease of administration and understandability of the items in the Q-set and generated suggestions for changes to the instrument instructions and Q-set items. Findings and implications for further development of the instrument are presented.
