 The following questionnaire evolved to its present state from its beginning in 1967 as an effort by Brad Steiger to form a pattern profile of paranormally talented individuals, contemporary mystics, and/or spiritually oriented men and women. In 1968, Steiger developed the questionnaire further and it became associated with the worldwide phenomenon known as "The Star People."
In 1987, he combined elements from the research of Sherry Hansen, who had created a similar analytical questionnaire in 1970 as a counselor at the State University of New York at Stoneybrook. Both Steiger and Hansen found that their respondents were often the "helpers" here on Earth, for they spoke of being often sought out for advice and counsel by friends and strangers alike. Steiger and Hansen found such individuals in all ethnic groups, all social strata, all occupations and professions. Although these men and women expressed the feeling of being "strangers in a strange land," great numbers of them actively served in such helping professions as nurses, doctors, teachers, clergy, social workers, law enforcement, media professionals, and psychic and psychological counselors.
In 1993, Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger fashioned the questionnaire that you now perceive. Over 90% of the approximately 30,000 individuals who have returned the questionnaire report having experienced a sense of "oneness with the universe." A remarkable 86% claim some kind of contact with other-worldly or other-dimensional beings. The greatest single commonality is a desire to be of service to the planet and to all of its creatures, great and small.
