Resources

A living collection of developmental resources to help you psychosocially and spiritually grow.

Psychometric Tests

DISC assessment:  An in-depth (fee-based) questionnaire that provides insight into one’s emotional reactions and behavioral habits.  Several alternate versions are available.  (I’m developing a more comprehensive DISC assessment, so check back soon.)

Keirsey Temperament Sorter:  A basic questionnaire somewhat comparable to the DISC profile, this assessment provides insight into one’s personal needs, social roles, communication style, and other personality traits.

Myers-Briggs assessment:  A basic questionnaire based on Jung’s classic typology.  Useful to identify one’s default means of energy acquisition, information processing and perception, and decision making.

Personal values assessment:  A very basic questionnaire to help clarify your values, motives, talents, and attitudes.  Especially useful in comparing how one’s values harmonize with one’s work environment.

Emotional Intelligence assessment:  A lengthy, in-depth assessment to help one grow in understanding and regulating emotions.  It is much more difficult to find affordable yet high-quality alternate versions of this assessment.

Enneagram:  Various approaches to the nine personality types of the often-misunderstood Enneagram.  Useful in building self-awareness of one’s psychological, social, and spiritual orientations.
