Do my results come with an interpretation session?
Here at careerassessmentsite.com we comply with the interpretation requirement for all restricted* psychological assessments. All restricted psychological assessments offered at careerassessmentsite.com include a mandatory phone interpretation at no additional cost to you. Audio SKYPE is used for international customers. Once you complete your assessments, please contact us at [email protected] , or via phone at (805) 770-3888, in order to setup your free interpretation session and receive your results. Additional counseling beyond that of your initial consultation is available through the Career Assessment Site team at an additional cost.
*Non-Restricted reports that do not require a consultation nor include a free consultation are the iStartStrong Profile and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) Profile & Interpretive Report.
What is the structure and flow of The Interpretation Session?
Your consultation is an interactive phone call or SKYPE Audio call (international customers) with a licensed interpreter who will review your results with you, providing you with explanations of the details of your report as well as verifying your reported MBTI® Type if you have completed an MBTI® Assessment. You may ask questions during your session or you may mostly listen if you wish. Our feedback sessions are very popular and we are sure you will be satisfied. This is not a sales call in anyway and this consultations are of no extra charge to you.

What is your interpretation appointment reschedule policy?
Reschedules of your consultation appointments are allowed without a fee up until 2:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time the day prior to your appointment. Reschedules after this time will incur a $17.50 USD reschedule fee. Please keep in mind that we incur the cost of your interpretation session with our consultants after 2:00 P.M. the day prior to your session.
What are the differences between paid versus free assessments?
There are many free personality and interest inventory assessments located around the internet. One must know that though these tests attempt to mimic the MBTI® Instrument at no or sometimes a low cost to you, they are neither valid nor proven to assess you or what you are searching for. The MBTI® instrument has been rewritten for validity and cross culturally tested for over 50 years and cannot be replaced by replicas that attempt to do so.
Are discounted bulk purchases available?
Yes, we offer discounts for bulk purchases of ten or more reports. Discounts increase depending on the type of assessments you choose and the quantity purchased. If you are planning to buy in bulk, contact us at [email protected] or call us at (805) 770-3888 for an exact quote.
Does MBTI® Personality Type Change Over a Lifespan?
Out of all of the questions we are asked, as MBTI® practitioners this is the most frequent. The simple answer is no. We are born with a particular personality type preference and this stays with us throughout our life. However, it can get a little bit more complicated than this. As we age we tend to give more attention to what is called our “MBTI less preferred functions”. These functions are the part of our personalities that we are not born to use as often or the parts of our personality that don’t come as naturally to us. So at times, when we complete a Myers-Briggs® Assessment at a young age, and repeat it when we are in our golden years, it is possible to get varied results. Though this does not mean our personality type has changed, it simply means that we have further mastered other parts of ourselves over the years.
Other examples where varied MBTI® test results may occur are from outside pressures including family, peer, and social factors. If it happens that an individual completes an MBTI® Assessment and retakes the assessment at a later date, receiving different results, it is important to look at what outside factors might have influenced the subject’s change in results.
Additionally, family members and friends can have a preconceived notion of how a person should be. This is why it is so important that when completing an assessment one should think about who they are, and not how others might want or think they should be.
It is accepted in traditional based societies for men to be assessed as Logical, Introverted-Sensing-Thinking and Judging Personality Types (ISTJ’s) as opposed to Extraverted-Intuitive-Feeling and Perceiving Personality Types (ENFP’s). Some males might answer some questions toward a male dominated type, while in realty their true type is that of an Extroverted-Intuitive-Feeler-Perceiver. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of in being a male ENFP Type. Some of the great minds of our times are and were ENFP’S, such as the great movie mogul Oliver Stone, Walt Disney, and the original talented writer and philosopher Salman Rushdie.
So as you can see, on rare occasion factors can affect assessment results, but personality type does not change. To avoid skewed results, make sure to allow for uninterrupted time when taking an assessment; be opened and honest, be true to yourself, and remember there are no right or wrong answers. Simply answer how you are most of the time and not how others see you or how you think you should be. Remember, you are acceptable, wonderful, and many share your personality type.
