Molly Owens is the founder and CEO of Truity and has been taking personality tests pretty much constantly since the age of 7. After graduating from UC Berkeley, Molly was pursuing a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology when she realized she actually had no idea what she wanted to do with her life. In her search for tools that could guide her, she discovered the MBTI® and Strong Interest Inventory and realized that her lifelong love of self-discovery could be her vocation. After several years working as a consultant with industry-standard assessments, she began to notice a gap in the market—good quality personality testing was expensive and difficult to access, while gimmicky quizzes proliferated on the internet. In 2012, she founded Truity to bridge the gap, creating high quality personality assessments within a user-friendly, accessible online platform.
Molly lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she torments her husband and son with improvised recipes, half-baked travel plans and endless home renovation projects.
