If you would like immediate access to this report, please call us at 202-237-7179.
Marriage and pre-marriage counselors use this tool to compare the needs of two people in oder to clarify the strengths and issues of their relationship. This tool assesses:
Ages: This tool can be used with people who are 16 or older.
Length: The tool is a 128-item self-report questionnaire, which is independently completed online by each partner. There are no results until both partners complete the questionnaire. Administration time is about 15 minutes for each partner (30 mins. total)
Results: You receive a graphic display comparing the importance of each of 16 needs for two partners. Similar needs and values are interpreted as potential strengths of the relationships. Opposite needs and values are interpreted as sources of repeated conflict and quarrels.
Norms: The normative database today includes more than 40,000 people from North America, Europe, and Asia.
Validation: : Columbus marriage counselor Dr. Stephen Judah evaluated Reiss Motivation Profile® scores of 100 couples who showed for counseling as well as 40 couples who said they had happy marriages. He observed large differences in compatibility of motivational profiles between the two groups. The troubled couples presented with different and incompatible needs and values, such as one partner valuing saving and the other valuing spending, or one wanting a family and the other not wanting a family. The happy couples presented with dramatically more similar profiles of motivation and values; they were pulling in the same directions in their relationships.
