Many clients and colleagues frequently ask me if there are any definitive assessments they can take to learn more about themselves. Candidly, there are no definitive ones — but there are a lot out there that can help you peek in and see some of the drivers of your personality, actions and physical behaviors. Here are just a few (and they're FREE): Enneagram Test This test is pretty effective at calculating your greatest fears and motivations by characterizing you as one of nine personality types.

Alignment Test Alignment is a tool for developing your character's identity. It is not a straitjacket for restricting your character. Each alignment represents a broad range of personality types or personal philosophies, so two characters of the same alignment can still be quite different from each other. In addition, few people are completely consistent.

Gretchen Rubin's The Four Tendencies When we try to form a new habit, we’re setting an expectation for ourselves. Therefore, to change our habits, it’s crucial to understand how we respond to expectations. This framework describes how a person responds to expectations: as Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, or Rebel. (A new one added by one of my past clients - thank you Kate!)
