NEW!! The NYLS Adult Temperament Questionnaire, 2nd Edition By Stella Chess, M.D. and Alexander Thomas, M.D.


The ATQ measures the nine NYLS temperament dimensions in adulthood. These characteristics include activity level, rhythmicity, approach-withdrawal, adaptability, intensity, mood, persistence, distractibility and sensory threshold.

The second edition includes new norms for nine distinct groups: teens, high school age, college age, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60+, as well as the original, now called classic, sample. The test manual contains information regarding the development of the instrument, statistics and directions for use and interpretation. In addition it includes the complete NYLS item pool used with the original study group.

The ATQ is a 54 item self-report instrument standardized on the original NYLS sample. It is self-administered in 10-15 minutes and is useful for research or professional practice. Manual scoring takes 8-10 minutes.

NYLS Adult Temperament Practice Set comes with a test manual, and 25 questionnaires, with scoring and profile sheets.
