PsychoGeometrics® is a communication system that identifies the Science of Behavior and provides the tool for the Art of Communicating.
It was created in 1978 by Susan Dellinger, Ph.D., and inspired by the work of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Carl Jung (1875-1961), who is credited as the founder of analytical psychology.
Created by Susan Dellinger, Ph.D, in 1978, then in 1984 conducted a 3-year research study to validate her tool.
PsychoGeometrics® is a communication system, featuring five shapes used to identify traits and behaviors, specifically in terms of how one is described, acts, and relates to others.
In 2004 Dr. Dellinger partnered with Jack Wolf, Ph.D, and had The University of California Santa Cruz conduct a factor analysis of Psycho·Geometrics®. In 2005 Dr. Wolf created and developed the first written assessment, and in 2010 the first online assessment was created and launched. In 2020 Dr. Dellinger sold PsychoGeometrics LLC, including intellectual property, copyrights, and trademark to Susan Hite, founder and President of Hite Resources, Inc. since 2001, and PsychoGeometrics® licensed consultant and certified facilitator since 2002.
PsychoGeometrics has been shared and used by more than 1 million people, in more than 60 countries and in more than 1,000 corporations, companies, schools and universities, non-profit organizations, and government agencies around the world.
93% of communication is what you see and what you hear. Words are only 7% of communication, so WHAT you Say AND HOW you Say it is important for effective communication. PsychoGeometrics gives people the tools to have a powerful, influential, and effective voice on any platform with any audience, while still being authentic.
Participants take a 15-minute assessment that identifies their traits, behaviors, and interactions with others. This information can be immediately applied using virtual and written applications to strengthen communication.
