Description

Mind Prober asks users questions to rate themselves or other people on a series of 23 adjectives (talkative, pleasure-seeking, etc.), computes the results, and prints a three-page report describing the person.

The questions for users differ by gender (male or female) and age (under 18, or 18 and older). The program comes with a thick manual-plus-book that contains many chapters on how to better understand people around you.

Trivia

As developer Dr. James Johnson Ph.D writes on Mind Media site:

In 1984 my wife Cathy and I wrote a program called Mind Prober that asked users to rate themselves or other people on a series of adjectives and it computed the results and printed a three-page report describing the person. Mind Prober became an overnight hit. It was featured on the cover of InfoWorld and numerous other publications. It sold more than 250,000 copies. And it was named the top-selling educational program of 1985. A follow up program Mindviewer is now published by Mind Media and offered for subscribing to this newsletter on the Mind Media world-wide web site. Mindviewer has sold more than 100,000 copies since its release.
