I use The Birkman Method, an industry-leading personality instrument that is based in positive psychology and driven by scientific research. Other popular personality tests are theory-based and slot people into one of a handful of personality types. The Birkman Method is grounded in empirical research and combines broad personality categories with highly individualized results. In other words, some approaches assign you to one of four, nine, or sixteen types. By contrast, millions of Birkman tests have been taken and no two are exactly alike.
The Birkman Method is widely utilized by large corporations, small businesses, universities and business schools, non-profits, churches/ministry organizations, and consulting firms for executive coaching, team-building, hiring, on-boarding, leadership development, career counseling, and many more applications.
