Your Personal Assessment

By Mark Connelly       Updated: 30 June 2023

Personality profiles are used by more than 75% of large companies to hire the right people.1 Tests such as the Big Five personality model, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the DISC assessment provide powerful insights into human behavior. These personality profiling tools are available to you and can really help to change the way you view yourself and relationships.

Personality profiles - Find your perfect fit

Have you ever wondered what makes you uniquely you? How your personality impacts the way you interact with the world and the people around you? Do you want a deeper understanding of yourself and others? If you're curious and want to understand your behavior the personality profiling tools on this page are just what you need.

Use personality profiles to discover your strengths and areas for growth. You'll improve your relationships, career satisfaction, personal growth, self-confidence, and effective decision-making.

As a registered psychologist I need personality profiling tools that I can recommend to clients. That means that the tests must be:

  • Based on professional tested and accepted theory
  • Easy to use, understand and apply, and
  • Affordable

All the personality profiles and tests on this page meet these criteria, and add even more value.

Discover Your True Self through Personality Profiles

You could end up in a dead-end career if you're not aware of your personality type. It's almost a cliché to say that people are unhappy in their jobs. The world is full of stories of unhappy employees. Yet, research from the UK and USA tells us this may be true. We all want jobs that have meaning and purpose but surveys suggest that 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs.2 3

It's not only about being unhappy though. More than 60% of workers in the UK believe that new tools, such as AI, will result in the loss of more jobs than it will create.4 We need to future proof ourselves for career change.

If you don't know your personality you may end up in a job that doesn't align with your strengths and values. Discovering your personality traits can guide you to a career path that brings you meaning and purpose.

Types of Personality Profiles

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®)

The MBTI personality test is based on 16 personality types described by Myers & Briggs and takes about 25 minutes to complete.

It's estimated that 50 million people have included the Myers Briggs personality test in their personality profiles since the 1960's.5 The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a popular choice and is based on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types.

The Myers Briggs personality theory suggests that:

  • Your energy comes from being primarily Extraverted or Introverted
  • You process information through Sensing or Intuition
  • You make decisions by Thinking or Feeling
  • You view your world by being primarily Judging or Perceiving

All the combinations of these four basic preferences create 16 different Personality Types. Each personality type is given a four letter code. Your four letter code sums up your particular preference and Myers Briggs personality type.

You may already have seen combinations such as INTJ, INTP, ENFP and ESTJ. Maybe you've even wondered what these are about. Knowing your four letter personality code allows you to research your best approach to career choices, work styles, and being in relationships.

The TypeFinder® personality test is based on the Myers-Briggs personality assessment. There is no cost to take the online personality test and get a basic report that delivers your four letter MBTI personality code. This test is one I recommend to all my clients.

You can choose to buy a full report that gives you a detailed analysis of your MBTI personality style. This includes work, leadership and teamwork styles, careers related to your Myers-Briggs type, and ideas for growth areas and achieving your best. The feedback is comprehensive.
