Personality Type Assessments and Tools: The Golden Personality Type Profiler® Assessment

Carl Jung introduced the theory of personality type and Isabel Myers enhanced that model to bring the world a model to "make perceptions clearer and judgments more sound". After sixty years the incredible power and complexity of this model for individual, team, and leader development is still being discovered.

The Golden Personality Type Profiler™ takes these contributions to a new level for a more complete understanding of one's preferences, and for a focus on development for personal and interpersonal effectiveness. The Golden is an excellent complement to programs in which personality type plays a foundational role. The Golden is based on integrating two key personality frameworks: the Five-Factor Model and Personality Type.

The Golden Personality Type Profiler™ Assessment

The Golden Personality Type Profiler™ has a number of advantages as an assessment of psychological/personality type: It gives you all of the scores for all preferences rather than just a preference clarity score for one preference in each pair. The Golden reflects degrees in actual behavior rather than a forced sort. In addition, the Golden is the only personality type assessment that provides results on the critical aspect of type development: optimism and confidence within one's type.

The Golden has strong demonstrated reliability and validity based on factor analytic studies, rather than correlational studies. In addition, the Golden reports best fit studies as a cornerstone for exploring type dynamics instead of focusing on proving the preferences are "real."
