  • Mood:

I was a thrill-seeker in 1971

Also an experience-seeker. After getting over how incredibly dated the questionnaire was, I was also struck by the fact that many of the alternatives didn't seem mutually exclusive to me. In many cases I didn't want to check either of them, but apparently them, but that wasn't an option either. I wonder if that's another sign of the cultural gulf separating the me of today from an establishment psychology professor of the late 60s, or just a sign of the limited imagination required to create survey instruments.

It's scary, of course, to think of anyone using this in modern practice without severe updating and rescaling.
