Place each ch‎aracteristic in an appropriate box‚ which range from most ch‎aracteristic to least ch‎aracteristic. Each box only receives one attribute. For example‚ only 2 items may be “most ch‎aracteristic” of you and your ideal organization while 8 items must be “neither ch‎aracteristic or unch‎aracteristic.” You can write the item number in the box rather than the words. It may be easiest to read through the entire list of ch‎aracteristics looking for extremes first. While this sort may appear difficult‚ it goes quickly if you cross items off as you place them‚ and it is a critical part of the research.
 Most ch‎aracteristic
Neither ch‎aracteristic Nor Unch‎aracteristic
