The problem set for this study was: (A) to identify the type of counselor the therapist is through an analysis of techniques used by the counselor while "being himself" or while reacting in the counseling session according to his "own response characteristics"; (B) to determine whether there would be any behavioral changes in the client as measured by a personality inventory, self-evaluation rating scale, and recordings of therapeutic interviews if the counselor was “himself.” In summary, then, it was hypothesized that actual personality changes would occur and that when the counselor was "being himself" he would be mostly non-directive.
