2 Kinds of People: A Visual Compatibility Quiz
2 Kinds of People
A Visual Compatibility Quiz
Paperback      ISBN: 0761189491

It takes all kinds of people to make a world, the expression goes. But maybe it really takes only two kinds. People who put ketchup on their fries, and people who put the ketchup on the side. People who squeeze gently from the bottom, and people who manhandle the toothpaste tube.

2 Kinds of People is the interactive visual personality quiz that's as much fun as a game. It works by showing two illustrations side by side. If you and your partner pick the same one, score it on the foldout wheel in the back, and move to the next. At the end, the number of matches determines where you fall on the Scale of Compatibility, ranging from mortal enemies to soul mates. There are 85 pairs in all, covering food, home, technology, travel, and more. It's the perfect icebreaker, a clever way to find out if you and your best friend/date/coworker and/or person you just met in a bar are compatible.

Cup or cone? Cash or plastic? Shower or bath? Escalator or stairs? Toilet paper over, or toilet paper under? Like they say, it's the little things in life that really count.

Written by leading international authorities, this volume forms an invaluable reference manual to the IPDE instrument and its development. The book's first section includes an overview of the worldwide field trials of the interview and aspects of epidemiology that affect the current status of diagnosis and assessment research. The second section, detailing the full interview schedule and scoring system for the instrument, will further facilitate its use.
