From: Glen Harewood

Joe, please see the attached.
 Given the present, and the timely Conservative and NDP leadership elections, I thought it might be
 interesting if one checked  OUR, and THEIR "SOCIABILITY Quotient."
Note:: Learner(s) = any human being who is capable of changing his/her behaviour as he/she interacts with other human beings in the world.
MATERIALS = any matter, phenomena, (or other human beings in the case of SOCIAL[ABILITY] to which a subject can/may be exposed.
NOTE: These Instructions below co-ordinate with the descriptors seen in the attachment.

On a scale of  4 --1, four (4) being the RICH or high point, and one(1) being the DEFICIENT (low) point,
 HOW "Social" are you, Your friends, employees, employer, your students/learners, your Gov't Leaders ?
This test, developed by 250 Educational psychologists,(Vide ACCS: Frymier, 1977), and modified by yours truly, is still valid today!!

1. Determine the age of the person (even yourself)
2. Turn each of the nine (9) descriptors in the bipolar Likert scale into a question
 at the  corresponding RICH and DEFICIENT poles of the scale.
 [ Example: Are you (am I, is he/she Communicative/Participator OR Un-communicative/loner??) ]
3. Score oneself (yourself/others)  according to your determination along the [4 ---1 ] sliding scale.(be honest with yourself)
4. Do NOT add (vertically) the numbers but view, AS A WHOLE, all the scores.
5. Then decide whether you are (one is) more or less RICH or DEFICIENT on the SOCIAL(ABILITY)  dimension {this is only ONE of ten (10) dimensions of examining ONESELF, or any other person}.
6. DO SOMETHING about moving yourself  from DEFICIENT to RICH, by choosing or exposing yourself to MATERIALS                ( PERSONS, books, literature, T.V. learning programmes, INTERNET bona fide literature, all  relevant data, pictures, music,  Art, etc) that would ENHANCE, CHANGE, and move you from  1 to 4 on the scale.
