This assessment has been developed over a period of several years using data from over 200,000 test subjects. In developing this assessment, our goal was to go beyond simple 4-letter type to find the individual facets that make up our personalities. To do this, we did extensive research using volunteer subjects on the Truity site.
Our psychometric team developed and refined the assessment using rigorous statistical methods. This assessment has been tested thoroughly for reliability and validity. In addition, to discover the facets of personality type, we employed factor analysis. This is a sophisticated statistical technique that allowed us to tease out the 23 facets of personality type so that we can provide a uniquely nuanced picture of your type.
Your scores for the TypeFinder assessment are based on actual statistical data gathered from our high-volume population studies. This means that your scores show you how you truly compare to other people, including other people who share your type.
