The Four Way Test
For many decades Rotary Clubs and Rotarians around the world have used the 4-Way Test as an instrument to develop respect and understanding among peoples.
How the Test works is indicated by Herbert J. Taylor, the Chicago Rotarian who developed it. He suggests that first you memorize the 4-Way Test and then formulate the habit of checking your thoughts, words and deeds with it.
The 4-Way Test is now being used successfully around the world in business, government and schools as an effective measuring stick for conduct. It is a guide to RIGHT thinking. If memorized and constantly applied to relations with others, it will make a definitive contribution toward more effective and friendlier relationships.
