Adjective Check List
The Adjective Check List (ACL) is an assessment used to identify common psychological traits. Developed by Harrison G. Gough and Alfred B. Heilbrun, Jr., the checklist contains 300 adjectives (such as intelligent, cautious, clear-thinking, determined, and poised). Respondents select the adjectives that they believe describe themselves (or someone else). The assessment may be administered to an individual, or used by researchers to describe study participants.
Any number of items may be selected from the list of adjectives. In this way, the results are customized to include only those adjectives salient to the individual being assessed. The 300 adjectives correlate to 24 scales: 15 scales assessing needs or wants; and 9 scales assessing "attributes, potentialities, and role characteristics."
