The Theogramma is an agile and intuitive personality investigation tool, it is a questionnaire with a Likert scale, made up of three parts, the first uses the gods of Greek-Latin mythology as metaphors to explore character aspects, the second part has as variables of control the personal skills (roots) and the third the family and genealogical milieu (landscapes). Its result acts as an orientation tool that must be confirmed by the clinical interview and has the advantage of gathering a multiplicity of aspects of the subject.
