Start the Personality Self-Assessment

There are 86 statements in this tool. Be honest as you evaluate each statement. Think of the content in each statement as YOU see yourself; not how you think others view you. At the end of each statement is a check box for True or False. Answer "True" if the entire statement applies to you - or MOSTLY applies to you. Answer "False" if part of the statement does not apply to  you, or if the entire statement MOSTLY does not apply to you.

1. I succeed when others may fail, primarily because I keep pushing when they get discouraged or quit.

2. My calm, tranquil nature keeps me from getting upset in the face of external turmoil or stress.

3. I seem to be able to fairly accurately diagnose the obstacles and dangers of projects I am planning.

4. I can get annoyed by some people’s enthusiasm and even needle them sometimes.

5. I usually allow others to approach me. Typically I don’t initiate an introduction or conversation.

6. People see me as a leader, more from my drive and persistence than my “people personality”.

7. I’m not the best at conversing with others, but I can analyze them pretty well.

8. I often arrive late and forget what I’ve promised people.

9. I’m deeply loyal to a few friends, rather than the kind of person who has a lot of friends.

10. I am motivated by the people around me. If they are busy I get busy; if they aren’t I’m not either.


About This Self-Assessment

This tool is designed to help you determine your personality type, or “language” as we term it. Each of us receives a Personality Type, or “Temperament”, at birth. Over time, life’s circumstances and choices can add to that genetic temperament. Your Personality Type today is a combination of your genetic predisposition, life’s major circumstances and your choices to change or grow.

What makes understanding your personality type important?

Different personality types are like different languages. Yet, most of us aren’t aware of other people’s “languages” as much as we are of our own. This causes personality clashes and difficult relationships. Take this assessment to learn what YOUR language is. Then read the attached material to understand how your personality type will interact with others.
