You may have taken a Keirsey/Jung or Myers-Briggs Personality
test as part of a career guidance exercise in school, or as a component of a job application or training. Have you taken the time recently to take a personal inventory
of the strengths and challenges common to your specific personality
Consider the reason why employers use these tools and the
implications such information may have on your marriage/relationships, sex life, job, friendships, social life or your efforts to stop a dysfunctional cycle or behavior.
Recently, I re-took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS)*, and I
was surprised by the things I learned about myself—and the areas of my
personality for which I was able to have grace after taking the short exam. I must say that I found the results to be very accurate.
The Jung Typology Test is another measurement tool that is similar and can be used
to help couples determine their areas of compatibility, problem
areas, and ways to work with each other.
Both of the below tests are equal in length, free, and should theoretically
give you the same results. (I took them both and scored as an INFP on both).
I found the JTT to be a bit less complicated in the wording.
The first site is for the Jung Typology Test (JTT) FREE. Note that the compatibility function between personality types is not free, and is offered for a small fee.
The second Site is for the Keirsey Temperament Sorter(KTS) FREE: Make sure at the end you click (No Thanks, Just The Results)
So, what were your results? Click here to find out what they mean. Did you agree or disagree with your personality assessment? How did the results change the way you view your personal strengths and / or challenges?
*The KTS is an assessment shown to have validity with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI)—a more extensive exam that was developed in 1962 by Katharine Briggs
and her daughter, Isabel Myers, based upon Carl Jung’s book PsychologicalTypes (published 1923).
