An Application Tool for the MBTI Instrument.

In 1958, Will Schutz, Ph.D., introduced to the world a theory of interpersonal relations, called FIRO (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation). The theory presented three dimensions of interpersonal relations posited to be necessary and sufficient to explain most human interaction. On the behavioral level, these dimensions were called Inclusion, Control and Affection.

Dr. Schutz also created a series of measurement instruments, including FIRO-B®, consisting of scales that measured the behavioral aspects of Inclusion, Control and Affection.
