VAK Communication Profiler

""The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes
but in having new eyes"


 
  The VAK Communication Profiler will help you identify your NLP sensory representation preference and help you understand how you communicate. When you have answered all three parts, click PROFILE and a brief profile is provided. If you would like a more detailed profile, please enter contact information below.

Instructions: This instrument contains three parts. Part One consists of five sets of three paragraphs each. For each set, select the one paragraph that is easiest for you to read. Do not be concerned with the actual content of the paragraph, merely with how you respond to it compared to the other paragraphs in the set. Read all three paragraphs and then make your selection, but do not deliberate too long; your first response generally is best. Indicate the letter of the paragraph that you have selected on your answer sheet by selecting the appropriate letter (A, B, or C) for each set.

You have five minutes in which to complete the entire instrument.

Part One

1. Which do you prefer?

A. The tinkle of the wind chimes tells me that the breeze is still rustling outside. In the distance, I can hear the whistle of the train.

B. I can see the rows of flowers in the yard, their colors shining and fading in the sunlight and shadows, their petals waving in the breeze.

C. As I ran, I could feel the breeze on my back. My feet pounded along the path. The blood raced through my veins, and I felt very’ alert.

2. Which do you prefer?

A. I like to be warm. On a cold night, I like to relax by a warm fire in a comfortable room with a cup of smooth, warm cocoa and a fuzzy blanket.

B. The child talked into the toy telephone as though he were calling a friend. Listening to the quiet conversation, I could almost hear the echoes of another child, long ago.

C. The view was magnificent. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The panorama of the green countryside stretched out clearly below us in the bright, sparkling sun.

3. Which do you prefer?

A. They appeared to be surprised when they noticed that there were other people on the beach. The amazement on their races turned to eagerness as they looked to see if they knew any of the people on the sand.

B. I was helped up and supported until I felt my strength coming back. The tingling sensation that ran up and down my legs—especially in my calves—was stronger after I stood up, and my body was extremely warm.

C. People will express themselves more verbally if they can talk about their interests or assets. You can hear the increased enthusiasm in their conversations, and they usually become more fluent.

4. Which do you prefer?

A. The feedback that the speaker received was an indication that she was communicating more effectively. The people in the audience seemed to be in tune with what she was talking about.

B. I want to understand how people feel in their inner worlds, to accept them as they are, to create an atmosphere in which they feel free to think and feel and be anything they desire.

C. Children watch adults. They notice more than we realize. You can see this if you observe them at play. They mimic the behavior of the grown-ups they see.

5. Which do you prefer?

A. Creative, artistic people have an eye for beauty. They see patterns and forms that other people do not notice. They respond to the colors around them, and their visual surroundings can affect their moods.

B. They heard the music as if for the first time. Each change of tone and tempo caught their ears. The sounds soared throughout the room, while the rhythms echoed in their heads.

C. Everybody was stirred by the deep emotions generated by the interaction. Some felt subdued and experienced it quietly. Others were stimulated and excited. They all felt alert to each new sensation.
