What is a Personality Test?

A personality test is a tool used to assess human personality. Personality testing and assessment is a method designed to measure traits that people exhibit across various situations. 

We believe that each one of us is unique. But at the same time self-awareness helps access our strengths and address weaknesses in ways that make our lives better.

Personality traits reflect people’s innate tendencies and are represented as opposed pairs, for example, Introversion and Extraversion, great tests may give you much better granularity.

If you are interested we recommend 16personalities test. Feel free to share the result with us, it will help us assessing your best persuasion strategy.
