This technique was published in 1955 by William F. Fey for verification of the degree of acceptance of others. Most often, this test is used to measure the level of team adaptation in students of grades 5 to 11.
What is acceptance of others?
Acceptance is a statement of the fact of other's feelings, events, behavior, moral attitudes. Normal acceptance of other people as they are leads to a normal acceptance of one's own personality, self-esteem raise, stress resistance, and a positive attitude towards others.
In modern society, acceptance of others is closely intertwined with the concept of tolerance. The higher the degree of acceptance of others, the more a person is characterized by non-aggressive behavior, cultural tolerance, and lack of prejudice towards views that are different from their own.
