Summary

The selection and development of six tests measuring the ability to receive and interpret nonverbal communications are described, as is an attempt to gather evidence of their value as predictors of success in two occupations requiring high levels of interpersonal skills-- psychology and counseling. The tests were: (1) Inter-Person Perception Test; (2) Test of Implied Meanings; (3) "PONS-audio from the Profile of Nonverbal Sensitivity; (4) "PONS-visual" from the Profile of Nonverbal Sensitivity; (5) Photo Sequence Comprehension Test; and (6) Photo Classification Test (PCT). The 106 subjects were graduate students and had taken also the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) and the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Miller Analogies Test. The principal criterion measure was a faculty rating form used to rate the student on a nine-point scale in: academic work, interpersonal relations with peers, faculty, and clients; personal qualities; and predicted effectiveness as a psychologist or counselor. Ratings were collected several months after testing. The PCT seems to have been the most effective predictor, but it was uncorrelated with the GRE and only weakly correlated with the GEFT, as were most of the other nonverbal communication tests.
