Mind Prober is a program released by Human Edge in 1984 designed to help analyze and understand the personalities of different people. The program presents an extensive series of qualities a subject may (or may not) have and asks the player to respond if they agree or disagree with the statement. Qualaties analyzed include whether someone is talkative, empathetic, kind, impatient, sarcastic, competitive, and many more. Based on the results of the survey, the program assembles a report explaining how a person with these qualities thinks and how to interact with them. Players can select options for male or female subjects along with their age which affects the type of qualities asked about and the results given. The program is packaged with a book "Reading Others" which expands on the concepts of how to read other people in more detail.
