PsychoGeometrics® was created in 1978 by Susan E. Dellinger, Ph.D. as a communication system featuring five geometric shapes representing five communication styles. In June of 2020, Susan Hite, president of Hite Resources, Inc (circa 2001) and PsychoGeometrics® consultant and facilitator for nearly 20 years. purchased the PsychoGeometrics® company from Dr. Dellinger. Today PsychoGeometrics®, the science of behavior and the art of communication, blends the science with the art by identifying the “what” and the “how” of communicating effectively.
Welcome to PsychoGeometrics®
PsychoGeometrics® comes from the word psychometric, as in “psychometric tests.”
Psychometric tests are typically given to a potential job candidate to measure a person’s suitability for a role based on the required characteristics, aptitude, or cognitive ability. The results are then used to determine the extent to which a candidate’s traits, aptitude, and/or cognitive abilities match those required to perform the job.
Examples of psychometric testing are numerical reasoning tests, verbal reasoning tests, diagrammatic reasoning tests, situational judgment tests and trait, and behavioral-based tests.
PsychoGeometrics® has its own psychometric assessment, based on a logical reasoning approach using five geometric shapes, to determine one’s natural communication strengths; thus, the name PsychoGeometrics®
Instead of using a letter or letters, a color or colors, or a specific word or list of words, PsychoGeometrics® uses five geometric shapes to represent five behaviors that are needed for effective communication. The 15-minute online test reveals which of the five shape behaviors are your natural strengths and which ones you may find more difficult to use.
