1. How much time should I set aside to take the indicator?

A. It takes about 10-15 minutes to read the instructions, complete the payment process, take the indicator and read your results.

 

2. How soon will I get my results?

A. Once you have completed the indicator, it takes about 30 seconds for the system to tabulate your results and prepare pages for your viewing. We offer two different versions of the results page: one, with simply your tabulated results and a brief explanation of the processing styles, and a second that adds a set of sample statements to better illustrate your processing style.

 

3. Can I get a printed copy of the results?

A. Yes, you will be able to print both versions of the score sheet. We also allow you to log back in, using your email address and the password you set up during registration, and print your results at any time.

 

4. What will I learn from taking the ACKTIVV®?

A. You will learn how you uniquely take in information then act on it. Learning is taking in information, and processing is using what is learned to take action. Have you ever put in the effort and energy to get some type of result – on a test, a project, a task at work or home, or something else – and you didn't seem to get the results equal to the time and effort you put in? By finding out how you process information, you will get the help you're looking for to better know how to approach things and useful information for developing the strategy to use to get successful outcomes from your effort.

 

5. What if my dominant processing styles results are tied?

A. Many people have a tied or very close results in the dominant processing style. Everyone uses a combination of internal tools to process information.  Tied scores indicate the two styles are used in conjunction with each other. Coaching can be a great benefit to better understanding how to incorporate the identified processing styles into your life at home, at school or at work.

 

6. After taking the indicator, how can I learn more about my processing styles?

7. How did  the ACKTIVV® come about?

As a former educator and a Life Coach, for years I longed for a tool to help clients identify the way they processed information that could be an additional tool for assistance when developing systems, uniquely suited to them, to manage the challenges of life.  When I couldn’t find what I sought, I decided to create it!  After many revisions, the ACKTIVV® Processing Styles Indicator© is the accurate, beneficial and easy to use tool I dreamed of finding.
