Personal Assessment and Career Discovery Tools
The Limits of Assessment Tools
Assessment tools are very limited in their usefulness by themselves because they don’t consider all of you and your needs.
They can certainly give you insights into particular areas, but it’s tough to apply what you learn unless it’s discussed with someone who knows you and understands these tools, such as a career or business coach.
Free Onlinement Assessment Tools
The more you learn about introversion and extroversion, the more you might realize you’ve misunderstood these concepts. So here is a way to see what actually fits for YOU.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
This is one of the most research-based tools for assessing where you fit on an introvert-extrovert spectrum. It’s also great for understanding other parts of your personality like how you make decisions, and how you get things done. The official, most accurate, version is done in the context of working with a professional who can help make sure it is accurate.
You can take a free online version of MBTI here for a good guess at your type.
