A quiz program on which contestants answered a series of 10 psychological questions, after which two guest psychologists appraised the contestant and compared their appraisals with his. Originally heard in a daily 15-minute format, the program changed to a 30-minute weekly format when it moved to ABC in 1950. Written by Edward Ettinger, the show was hosted first by John McCaffery and later by Gypsy Rose Lee. George Ansbro was the announcer.
