TypeFocus

You can count on TypeFocus for these reasons.

  1. Focus on your personality type 

    Your reports will be based upon the work of C. G. Jung, a Swiss psychoanalyst who published a book called Psychological Types that changed the way people saw themselves. When people understand their personality preferences, they often experience a surprised "ah-ha" feeling of enlightenment. Choices and events that used to be puzzling now make sense. Join the millions upon millions who have discovered what strengths they have based on their personality preferences.

  2. Scientifically validated assessment tools
    All the assessment tools in the TypeFocus site have been scientifically validated and proven over time to be what they say they are: some of the best assessment tools that can be created. This means you can trust them. TypeFocus measures three interactive concepts: personality, interests and values. The combination of these three instruments gives unparalleled power to providing you with great insights and accurate results. The TypeFocus assessment tools have been designed to be interactive and fun as well as reliable and valid.

  3. Useful application tools TypeFocus reports are heuristic, which means the reports "serve as an aid to learning, discovery, or problem-solving by experimental methods." Another way of saying this is that the TypeFocus reports will give you feedback in such a way that you can help yourself. The reports are designed to be used to improve your performance. That's why the TypeFocus motto is Success Through Self Awareness. As you become more aware of why you do what you do, you become more effective at what you do. It is a positive feedback loop and is the most effective way for anyone to learn is through experience.

  4. User friendly Program Design TypeFocus has really focused on making your online experience a happy one. Our approach to site navigation and support is second to none. You can focus on how to use your personality strengths to be successful; everything you do is saved so you can come back again and again to explore your results.
