Profiler Plus 5.8.4

This is the reference version for most studies using either Margaret Hermann's Leadership Trait Analysis or Stephen Walker, Mark Schafer and Michael Young's Verbs in Context System for Operational Code. To use this version:
  • Download the Profiler Plus Package for Academics
  • Contact Hanneke Derksen at Syracuse University to obtain a license code, instructions and support for Profiler Plus 5.8.4
Profiler Plus 5.8.4 will work without a license code but it will only process the first ten lines of text in each input file. Using the software this way becomes very tedious very quickly.
