It’s simple, yet powerful, and introduces a common language for referring to and discussing personality preferences that play an essential role in our everyday life.

Answering these questions accurately requires honest reflection on how you really think, feel, and act in general and maybe taking the test on more than one occasion.  Some of the questions on this test measure personality traits differently than you might guess so trying to answer the test in a way you think would be ideal is just going to screw up your results, so just focus on being honest if you want the most accurate results.
