What are the differences between paid versus free assessments?
There are many free personality and interest inventory tests and assessments located around the internet, though 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 40 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. If you are planning to buy in bulk, contact us at [email protected] for a coupon code to use at checkout. We also ask that you provide us with a list of the names of those persons who will be completing your purchased assessments so that we may track your account appropriately.
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 then this. As we age we tend to turn to, and 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.
At times, 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 thinks 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 (Extroverted-Intuitive- Feeler-Perceiver). 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 take 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.
