Abstract Charles Reich in The Greening of America has proposed a typology of life style or “consciousness.” This typology is the structure around which he builds his theory of social change. In this research, Reich's typology has been operationalized and tested empirically on 702 Australian 15- to 20-year-olds with the use of image analysis. Little underlying structure was found among the variables which Reich claimed would distinguish his three types of consciousness. The only similarity between what empirically derived structure did emerge and Reich's hypothesized structure was the presence in both of a radicalism dimension.
