Five Fun (Free) Personal Behavior Assessments #5

5.    Personality Inventory
This is by far the heaviest of all the assessments on our list, but it’s also one of the most thorough. Conducted by Northwestern University’s Department of Psychology, the test gathers basic demographic information and asks you to answer 76 questions, some of which are reminiscent of your SAT. Its results are also based on the big-five personality traits, but are more descriptive than any other assessment we’ve suggested.

So whether you’re in the office checking off that 80 percent task list this December or home with your family, take some time to get focused on your goals and how your natural behavior can help you achieve them. And feel free to share your AHAs or any other assessments you’ve found useful.

4.    Deal With It
Just like it sounds, this assessment looks at how you deal with everyday problems based on your own self-esteem. The test rates you in four areas: global self-esteem, shame-prone, guilt-prone and pride-prone personalities. The questions really make you think about how you view yourself and how you believe others view you, both in the workplace and social situations. The results provide you with a score between one and 100 with an explanation of what each score, high or low, might mean for you.

3. The Big Five
Many in the field of psychology believe there are five dimensions of personality: extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability and openness to experience/intellect. The “big five” will rate you on all these attributes and provide you with “percentile scores” that compare you to others who have taken it. There are many tests out there that assess your big-five attributes. We liked this one for its simplicity, anonymity and comparative analysis capabilities.

2. You Just Get Me

This personality assessment is great because it doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet provides a surprisingly accurate – in our testing – analysis of individual behavioral tendencies. A few traits deciphered are disciplined vs. casual, abstract vs. concrete and cooperative vs. competitive. For further example, this statement under the Cooperative/Competitive summary was one of our favorite personal results: “You have a bit of an edge. Maybe you laugh when people fall down.” Doesn’t everyone?

Five Fun (Free) Personal Behavior Assessments #1

Many companies begin idling around the holidays. But just because your hard deadlines and daily meetings have been pushed till after the New Year doesn’t mean your business savvy needs to go on standby. In fact, after you rev your team engine with your simple 2013 business plan, we suggest taking advantage of your downtime to readdress your personal professional goals. And we’ve got five free – and fun – online assessments to help you jump-start the process.

Behavioral assessments continue to be the trend among companies intent on hiring talent. According to Psychology Today, “Around 80 percent of the Fortune 500 companies use personality tests.” Why? According to Annette McLaughlin, VP of Talent at a recruitment firm in New York, assessments provide the tools to help you ask more informed questions and dig deeper. A leader for talent-based hiring at Gallup believes personality tests help employers discover what motivates a person or what will give them “intense satisfaction.”

Some of the most popular assessments used in the corporate world include the California Psychological Inventory, the DiSC Profile, Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder, the Hogan Development Survey, the Caliper Profile and the Emotional Competence Inventory.

But, what about your own personal behavior? How long has it been since you’ve done a self-assessment? And how can you self-evaluate toward accomplishing your business goals next year? Use the five free assessments below to learn more about yourself and flex your business brain this holiday.

1.    Jung Typology Test

This online quiz is modeled after Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers’s approach to determining personality types. It provides you with the same four-letter acronym as the official Myers-Briggs assessment, though we found the interpretation of results to be less in-depth. Of course, if you’re looking to dig deeper, you should read a book about the Myers-Briggs, take the test from a certified assessment administrator or ask one of America’s most beloved families, The Simpsons.
