The TypeFinder is a scientifically validated personality type assessment based upon the theories of Isabel Briggs Myers. The TypeFinder leverages modern technology and innovative assessment techniques to provide you with an accurate, user-friendly tool to assess personality type for your clients, employees and team members.

Uses for the Briggs Myers’ 16-type system

There’s a reason that organizations around the world, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, use personality type assessments based on Briggs Myers’ 16 types. This system of personality classification is simple enough to introduce in a 1-hour training workshop, yet versatile enough to guide a range of development activities—from leadership training to team-building sessions to conflict resolution workshops.

4 dimensions of personality

The TypeFinder assesses a user’s preferred style on each of the four dimensions of personality type:

    • Extraversion or Introversion: how do you manage your energy?
    • Sensing or Intuition: how do you process information?
    • Thinking or Feeling: how do you prioritize personal and group values?
    • Judging or Perceiving: how do you organize your life?

Based on a user’s response pattern the TypeFinder determines which personality style is preferred and scores the user’s four-letter personality type code.

About the TypeFinder® Personality Test

What Does it Measure?

The TypeFinder finds your personality type according to the 16-type system developed by Isabel Briggs Myers. Your personality is assessed on four dimensions:

  • Extraversion or Introversion: how do you manage your energy?
  • Sensing or Intuition: how do you process information?
  • Thinking or Feeling: how do you prioritize personal and group values?
  • Judging or Perceiving: how do you organize your life?

Your results on each dimension are combined to create your four-letter type code, for example INTP or ESFJ.

How Much Does it Cost?

The TypeFinder costs US$29 for an individual full report. You can take the test and view a sample of your results for free, then decide if you want to pay for your full report.

How Many Questions Will I Answer?

You’ll answer between 44 and 80 questions. The test adapts as you go, so you will answer more questions in areas where your personality type is not clear.

How Long Does it Take?

Allow about 20-30 minutes to take the TypeFinder.

How Accurate is It?

The TypeFinder has been studied extensively to ensure it is valid and reliable.

In addition to standard validity studies, we studied the TypeFinder with a sample group of people who already knew their personality type. The TypeFinder predicted their exact personality type 71% of the time, and matched 3 out of 4 of the letters of their type 22% of the time

What Will I Learn From My Results?

Your results on the TypeFinder reveal your four-letter type code, for example INTP or ESFJ. You’ll discover what each letter of your type code means, as well as what your type means for you, your relationships, and your success at work.
