One Minute Attitude Identifier

Geier's Attitude Assessment™

One minute activities suggested in the book, One Minute Manager (Blanchard, Johnson, 1988) emphasized meaningful time periods in which to promote growth experiences.

The recent appraisal of self-imposed time restrictions upon, particularly successful people, provides additional impetus for consideration of time (Pearsall, 2001, Toxic Success). John G. Geier, Ph.D. is included in this scientific and holistic effort to reshape methods that result in more efficient ways to work and live. He has, as part of a long standing contribution to behavioral awareness, developed a series of awareness inventories, referred to as "One Minute Predictors."


Geier's Attitude Assessment assists you in the following ways:

  • Identify the mental and spiritual level on which you operate. Appreciate the highs and lows of work and social activity.
  • Increase understanding in how attitudes develop. Use new terminology to describe the communication you use as a way to coordinate your behavior.
  • Determine the set of attitudes that create and satisfy your pursuit of happiness.

How it Works:

Sixty beliefs are examined to assist the responder in the identification of seven key attitudes that include:

  1. Idealistic
  2. Frustrated, anxious
  3. Defiant, angry
  4. Resigned
  5. Aware, thinking
  6. Decisive, changing
  7. Committed, involved

The identified attitude is situational or indicative of an overall response to life activities—depending upon the method used for response. An Attitude Map™ is utilized to demonstrate the attitudinal direction of the user and to identify the specific interpretation of each attitude.

Part A: The interpretation section, provides a description of the attitude identified in the Attitude Map.

Part B: This part of the assessment tool is an attitude adjustment section, emphasizing the use of negative and positive self-talk, each of which, contribute to the development of appropriate or inappropriate attitudes that correspond to one's work environment.


Counselors, coaches, and managers have the individual complete the assessment at the beginning of a series of coaching or mentoring sessions and again after several weeks of meetings to identify and measure attitude change.

Individuals use the assessment for their own personal "Attitude Adjustment."
