Kiersey Personality Assessment – What’s your temperament?

Well, after completing the Type Focus assessment, I’m sure you’re itching to find out more about yourself, aren’t you?

As a complement to the Type Focus Assessment, Kiersey Temperament Sorter attempts to analyze your personality traits, likes, dislikes, and preferences and plop you into one of 4 temperament types. As mentioned before, knowing yourself just that much better will definitely serve you well in the career planning process by allowing you to better recognize your own strengths, weaknesses, and preferences and match them to specific fields of work.

Kiersey Temperament Sorter has you fill out 71 questions that are somewhat similar to that of Type Focus, looking a little something like this:

Is clutter in the work place something you
tolerate pretty well
take time to straighten up

After you’re done you will be able to see a free version of your assessment results which conveniently points out for you what your temperament type is and explains it in detail – even what your personality type is like at work! I myself am an Idealist; so I like friendly cooperation and focusing on personal growth and achievement as it describes in my temperament description. The other temperaments are Rationals, Artisans, and Guardians. But what’s really cool about Kiersey is that you can find your more specific personality type too. Remember that 4-letter code from Type Focus? Use it to find out if your results match up from both assessments!

So, I am an INFJ (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging) which constitutes to the “Counselor” in Kiersey. My 4-letter type happens to fit under my temperament type, the Idealist. From there you can find out more information about your 4-letter code including your best job fit.

Because it only takes a few minutes, Kiersey Temperament Sorter is a great way to build upon your self knowledge and your previous results from Type Focus! What are you waiting for? Get started here
