Our personality tool is more insightful than Myers-Briggs
It's more practical than DiSC
And it's more consistent than the Big 5
"Tell me all about it!"
"And how can I use this knowledge to change my life for the better?"
Film yourself answering a list of questions we provide you. We'll have two of our personality experts watch this through and type you independently. If two experts can both agree, you know you're on the right track!
We use the "Objective Personality" model, which joins the dots between the most comprehensive personality frameworks available (cognitive functions, human needs, temperaments and the learning modalities).
We explain your results to you face-to-face, ensure you understand each of the many layers of what makes you tick, and then we coach you through a personal development plan to improve yourself, your relationships and career.
Robots can't yet understand us well enough to be able to explain all of your intricate detail and complexity. We have two professionals independently determine your personality type before we meet with you to share and explain your results and lay out your action plan.
Ever wondered if you're getting in the way of your own personality results? The way you answer personality a test will always bias the result, even if you're not aware you're doing it. Personality is never purely objective, but our rigorous typing process cuts through the subjectivity and helps you get a more objective outcome you can make sense of.
How many times have you finished a personality test and ended up with a PDF in your email box. Or worse still, just a nice graph and a label to cling to? We provide a 1hr personality coaching session as a default, and offer further coaching if desired, so that you end up with a personalised and achievable plan for how to grow as a person.
Includes up to 2 hours of video-based typing by two PA personality typing specialists, your personality type results, and a 1 hour personality coaching session. (Valued at $660)
We use the Objective Personality (OP) methodology, developed by Dave & Shan Powers and a large team of online personality researchers, which the PA team is a part of.
(Here's a short video story about how Dave & Shan used objective testing to refine the OP method into a super useful framework: The Story of Objective Personality)
OP classes people into one of 512 unique categories. These categories are based on binary personality preferences (i.e. are you more this or that). Most other frameworks have less than 16 result categories, which is why they are often so generic. With 512 categories, your result can be much more precise and useful. Over time, the number of OP personality categories might increase, as we become clearer about other consistent, measurable human differences.
OP is a powerful synthesis of previously existing personality frameworks, along with with some newly defined elements. The methodology employs the following ideas:
Yes, our team is well-versed in many personality methodologies, including MBTI, 5 love languages, StrengthFinder, Enneagram, Saboteurs, the 6 Human Needs, DiSC and others. We see value in all of these and can discuss any of them in our coaching sessions with you.
Before you receive your results, you'll be asked to complete a short online education module which helps to explain the OP system and gives you a chance to self-assess your own personality. Your coach will then help you to identify which habits and beliefs for you to work on to improve your personal life, your relationships and your career.
The practical outcomes we typically see from this experience are:
