The survey administered by the coach of the Hannover 96 soccer team is a standardized psychological tool that I developed to assess what motivates any individual. Of the 128 questions, 120 have nothing to do with sex, contrary to what you implied (SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE, Jan. 23). The coach had used the tool successfully in two previous seasons. The results provide insight into how each player might perform on the field under the stress of competition.
