Q. I'm excited to take the TypeFinder! How do I do it?
A. That's an easy one. Just head over here!
The TypeFinder costs $19, but you don't need to pay until you've taken the test and seen a sampling of your results.
Q. What's this test all about?
A. The TypeFinder is based on the 16-type system created by Isabel Briggs Myers. However, the way we explain things is slightly different. This is because we've also consulted modern research in the field of personality psychology (specifically, the Five Factor model) to update Myers' system for the 21st century. You can read more here.
Q. So it's similar to the MBTI®?
A. Sort of. When you take the TypeFinder, you will get your results in terms of a four-letter type (like ENTJ or INFP), just as you do with the MBTI® instrument (a registered trademark of the Myers & Briggs Foundation, Inc.).
However, the TypeFinder is structured differently. The questions are more complex and allow you to more easily express nuances in your thoughts and behavior. The test also adapts as you go, so you answer fewer questions in areas where your style is obvious, and more questions where your style is less clear.
Most importanty, unlike the MBTI®, the TypeFinder is designed to accurately determine your personality type without the aid of a trained counselor. Because the MBTI® assessment correctly determines your type only about 60% of the time, you must take it with the assistance of a professional who can help you to find your actual personality type. This is costly and time consuming. The TypeFinder uses its adaptive technology to help you find your true type, in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Q. Can I take this test without a psychologist's help?
A. Sure! The TypeFinder is designed to be easy to understand and use. You don't need to work with a psychologist to take it or to understand your results. In fact, you can start right now!
Q. Why isn't the TypeFinder free?
A. We spent over two years developing the TypeFinder, testing it out on more than 50,000 sample subjects, and making sure it's the best personality type assessment available today. The TypeFinder is not meant to compete with free quizzes put together by hobbyists on the internet. It's meant to be a scientific, reliable tool to discover your type. It simply has the added benefit of being affordable and accessible to everyone.
Q. I'm a counselor or coach. Can I use the TypeFinder in my practice?
A. Absolutely! The TypeFinder is easy to use with your clients and extremely cost-effective. You can be ready to administer the TypeFinder to clients within just a few minutes, with no costly training requirements or signup fees. To get started, create a Pro account.
Q. I'm a teacher/counselor/nonprofit who'd like to use the TypeFinder, but my organization can't afford it. Can you help?
A. Yep! We are committed to making the TypeFinder available to everyone who can benefit, including schools and community organizations with limited budgets. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
