Questionnaire for People
(now known as Spirit-in-Nature Essences / SiNE)
This questionnaire is designed to help you assess the essences that are presently best suited to your needs. While an evaluation of this type is somewhat general by nature, many individuals have found it an extremely useful essence selection tool. You may find that several essences are indicated equally as strongly. If so, in keeping with the recommended single-essence approach, prioritize them in order of need, taking each essence for 3 days to 2 weeks; or you may take them in combination.
Answer the following questions fairly quickly; your “first hunch” will generally be the most accurate. Place a checkmark by those statements to which you respond with yes; leave blank those statements you feel do not apply to you or are not a particular area of concern at this time. An Answer Key will be found at the end of the questionnaire.
You may wish to date and save your responses and re-test yourself; monthly intervals are recommended. Also, you may find the questionnaire helpful in working with family, friends, and clients. We welcome your feedback on the overall helpfulness of this questionnaire.
