Understanding yourself is a key to unlocking your potential and being more influential. There are a variety of available tools. I am certified with MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator), plus DISC and Enneagram. However, I utilize and recommend the Enneagram since it provides a more wholistic and systemic understanding of who you are and how to self manage for sustainable success.

Although one-to-one assessment is ideal, the link(s) above and below will take you to the organizations that provides an online assessment tool. No tool is perfect.  These have higher statistical validation. The ultimate decision is up to you regarding your type. The most effective method of utilizing the Enneagram is reading through the types to self identify yours, and/or working with a coach.

Once you take the test, you can save the results by copying and pasting them into an Email or MS-Word document. If you take the paid fully validated test, then you'll be able to receive a printed summary of your results.

These tests are not associated or affiliated with me. I receive no compensation in any way to advocate or link to these assessments.

According to the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, a person with emotional intelligence (EQ) possesses both personal competence and social competence. Social competence - that is, social awareness and skills-depends on an individual's personal competence. Personal competence begins with self-awareness - emotional awareness, accurate self assessment, and self-confidence - and then expands to include self-regulation and self-motivation. The most accurate and useful system available to help develop both personal and social competence is the Enneagram, which is why companies all over the world - Hewlett Packard, Sony, and Disney - are embracing it, and the CIA uses it to predict the behavior of foreign leaders. To use the Enneagram, a person must first accurately identify his or her own Enneagram style from among the nine unique personality styles identified by numbers One through Nine.(1)
