Assessments reflect our own perceptions of who we are and how others perceive us. The results are based on your responses to short questionnaires. An assessment can help you understand why you make decisions, how you communicate, how you perceive the world and what you are capable of doing. Assessments can help you find a new career, job or companion. Assessments have been used for self-diagnosis for years. Those in use today have their foundations in the early 20th century when “personality assessments” based on both trait and psychoanalytic theories emerged.
People are guided through a series of questions online and then receive a report with their results. Typically, this includes a trained, certified professional coach or consultant who will deliver the results and feedback to the respondent.
