OMG! This was so very exciting and insightful. This accurately captured the qualities and attributes that make up my essence so much more precisely than anyone has EVER been able to do. AMAZING! I am also eager to get to know, learn and connect with myself on a much deeper level than which I am acquainted. Only then will I truly become a force to be reckoned with. So Thank You.

I enjoyed finding about my personality type and would say I found it to be very accurate. From reading my full report I can understand why I excel in some parts of my life and where in others, having these traits are holding me back. With this new awareness I feel I can make better decisions. I would recommend anyone to take the quiz to discover what makes them tick. It also gave me insights as to how others in my life are different to me allowing me to have a different perspective on who they are being. We all have different strengths!

Found the report to be absolutely spot on. Very insightful and wish I had done this earlier in life as it would have helped guide some important decisions. The potential weaknesses at the end were equally eye opening!

The Myers & Briggs Foundation

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

"Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills."

In developing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator [instrument], the aim of Isabel Briggs Myers, and her mother, Katharine Briggs, was to make the insights of type theory accessible to individuals and groups. They addressed the two related goals in the developments and application of the MBTI instrument:

The identification of basic preferences of each of the four dichotomies specified or implicit in Jung's theory.

The identification and description of the 16 distinctive personality types that result from the interactions among the preferences."

Excerpted with permission from the MBTI® Manual: A Guide to the Development and Use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

Favorite world: Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world? This is called Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I).

Information: Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in or do you prefer to interpret and add meaning? This is called Sensing (S) or Intuition (N).

Decisions: When making decisions, do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency or first look at the people and special circumstances? This is called Thinking (T) or Feeling (F).

Structure: In dealing with the outside world, do you prefer to get things decided or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options? This is called Judging (J) or Perceiving (P).

Your Personality Type: When you decide on your preference in each category, you have your own personality type, which can be expressed as a code with four letters.

The 16 personality types of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument are listed here as they are often shown in what is called a "type table. "

For a description of your MBTI type, place your cursor over the box containing your four-letter type code. You may also wish to browse through all of the 16 type descriptions.

If you do not know your MBTI type, you may wish to take the instrument.

Type tables can also be used to gather and facilitate analysis of information about teams or specific groups of people.

All types are equal: The goal of knowing about personality type is to understand and appreciate differences between people. As all types are equal, there is no best type.

The MBTI instrument sorts for preferences and does not measure trait, ability, or character. The MBTI tool is different from many other psychological instruments and also different from other personality tests.

The best reason to choose the MBTI instrument to discover your personality type is that hundreds of studies over the past 40 years have proven the instrument to be both valid and reliable. In other words, it measures what it says it does (validity) and produces the same results when given more than once (reliability). When you want an accurate profile of your personality type, ask if the instrument you plan to use has been validated.

The theory of psychological type was introduced in the 1920s by Carl G. Jung. The MBTI tool was developed in the 1940s by Isabel Briggs Myers and the original research was done in the 1940s and '50s. This research is ongoing, providing users with updated and new information about psychological type and its applications. Millions of people worldwide have taken the Indicator each year since its first publication in 1962.


Luscher test | Blog 4brain

The Lüscher Test is a personality test developed by the Swiss psychotherapist Max Lüscher. The essence of the test is the ranking of colored cards. Based on your individual preferences between colors, certain conclusions can be drawn about your personality.

We invite you to take our online Self-Knowledge Program to get to know yourself better. In 4 weeks, with the help of psychological tests and exercises, you will find out what you really want in life, understand your strengths and weaknesses.

What is the Luscher test and how does it work?

The method of color diagnostics, developed by the psychotherapist Max Luscher and named after him, was developed in the middle of the last century and immediately became popular.

The test was the main development of Luscher and the main business of his life. For several decades, he conducted research and improved his methodology.

Max Luscher believed that color perception is universal, but color preferences are individual. Based on this, knowing the colors preferred by the individual and their meaning, one can draw conclusions about the properties of his character and internal state.

Also, the results of the Luscher test help psychotherapists determine the causes of stress and, accordingly, find ways to get rid of it.

It should be noted that according to Max Luscher himself, his test is applicable to every person. Regardless of gender, nationality, age, etc. The test will allow you to make a correct diagnosis.

There are various variations of this test. The most popular is the eight-color Luscher test. In this version, the person is asked to rank the colors below.

As already mentioned, there are several Luscher tests, and, of course, each of them is real. They differ in the number of colors, the size of the cards and the colors themselves (shades).

Clinical Luscher color test

This test is called the full Luscher test, because it contains more colors.

It requires the following conditions:

  1. Good natural light.
  2. No direct sunlight.
  3. Using the original colors (if you change the set of colors, the interpretation of the results will also change)

This test is carried out as follows:

  1. Select among shades of gray.
  2. 8 colors.
  3. Choice of four basic colors.
  4. Among the blue.
  5. Among the green.
  6. Among red.
  7. Among yellow.

You can take the Luscher test here (including the full one) and here.

Meaning of colors

Each color has its own special characteristics.


In the Luscher test, gray is a neutral color. If a person puts it in the first place, then he wants to separate from the rest of the world, to avoid the influence of any incentives. If gray is not chosen first, it means a person's desire to move away from the problems that indicate the least attractive colors. The gray color in the first three positions is interpreted as a tendency to self-deception.


Red is the color of excitement. It means the desire for power, success, rich and vibrant life. If the red color is placed in the first place, it means that the person wants to experience this excitement in the near future. Red in the last places means fear of excitement, unwillingness to experience it.


This color means perseverance, perseverance, constancy and reliability. Also resistance to change. If a person chooses green first, then they probably want to increase their confidence in their own worth. Green also means the desire to establish control over one's own life and improve it. The green color in the first place is a sign of a thirst for recognition. Green in the last places means the same desires, but the unwillingness to realize them.


Blue is the color of peace, the color of the absence of irritation. Therefore, the choice of blue color means the need for peace and relaxation. That is, blue is a sign of susceptibility. If a person puts blue in last place, this means unwillingness to rest. A person believes that he cannot calm down, slow down, without losing anything.


Somewhat similar to red, but weaker. Yellow is brightness, fun, hope for happiness. If a person chooses him one of the first, this means the desire for liberation from what is currently oppressing a person. Yellow in the last places is a sign of the destruction of hopes.


Brown - muted red. He is more passive. Brown suggests sensory perception, not agitated activity. This color in the first places denotes the desire for peace and relaxation. Last but not least, the desire to stand out.


Violet is obtained by mixing blue and red, two opposite colors. Purple can represent unity or uncertainty. It is often one of the first choices of teenagers. Purple in the last places means the desire for merger and unity.


This is the color of negation, "nothing". Black in the first place means a protest against one's own destiny, its denial. Black in last place is the belief that rejection leads to scarcity, deprivation. Therefore, the person who put black in last place does not want to give up anything.

Criticism of the test

Critics often point out that the wording of the test results is rather vague and universal. That is, because of the Barnum effect, people think that the test is incredibly accurate and “just about me,” but in fact, its results are suitable for almost everyone.

There is no convincing evidence that the Luscher test is really accurate and gives a purely individual characteristic, therefore, its results should not be taken too seriously.

We wish you success and proper self-esteem!

Wechsler test | Blog 4brain

The Wechsler test is one of the most famous and popular tests for measuring the level of intelligence. It will help you determine both the level of general intelligence (IQ) and the level of development of individual abilities. You can also track your progress by periodically measuring your intelligence using the Wexler method. How the test works and why it is worth passing, you will learn in this article.

About the test

The test was developed by American psychologist, psychiatrist and psychodiagnosticist David Wexler. Includes 11 subtests, which can be divided into two groups: verbal and non-verbal intelligence.

Each of the 6 verbal and 5 non-verbal subtests consists of 10-30 questions of increasing difficulty.

Subtests were selected according to the following criteria:

  • high correlations with other tests that measure the level of intelligence;
  • high level of differentiation: a single, especially well or especially poorly developed ability does not distort the overall results;
  • subtest results help in making a diagnosis (certain disorders correspond to certain pathologies).

The result of passing each subtest is evaluated by points, which are later converted into unified scales. This allows you to compare the results for different subtests and analyze their spread.

Wechsler test helps determine:

  • the level of verbal and non-verbal intelligence separately;
  • the ratio of the development of verbal and non-verbal intelligence;
  • intelligence quotient (IQ) based on two scales;
  • intellectual abilities that are less developed than others and require compensation.

3 versions of the test are used:

  • WAIS - for adolescents over 16 years old and adults;
  • WISC - for testing children and adolescents aged 6 to 16;
  • WPPSI - for children 4 to 6 years old.

Russian-language adaptations are available only for the first two modifications.

It is also worth noting that the modifications after their appearance were supplemented by both Veksler himself and other scientists. New subtests were added, the structure changed a little. For example, WPPSI was developed in 1967 and further revised in 1989, 2002, 2003 and 2012. Therefore, the same test can also have several subspecies (more or less modern).

We will not consider each of them, we will focus only on 11 original subtests proposed by Veksler.


Verbal subtests:

  • General awareness. 29 questions that determine the level of simple knowledge. There are no tasks that require the subject to know special theoretical information. The correct answer is 1 point.
  • Understanding. 14 questions that determine how well the test-taker understands the meaning of expressions. The score depends on the correctness of the answer: from 0 to 2 points.
  • Arithmetic. 14 primary school level oral tasks. Not only the correctness is evaluated, but also the solution time.
  • Finding similarities. 13 tasks that offer to combine two subjects on a common basis. Score from 0 to 2 points.
  • Storing numbers. The subtest has two parts. In the first one, it is proposed to memorize by ear from 3 to 9 numbers and then play them aloud. In the second part, it is necessary to reproduce a series of 2-8 numbers, but in the reverse order.
  • Vocabulary. It is necessary to define 42 terms. 10 of them are simple and are common in everyday life. 20 - medium difficulty. The last 12 are abstract theoretical concepts. Estimated, depending on the correctness, - from 0 to 2 points.

The verbal scale has a correlation with the general culture of the subject. For example, according to the tests "Awareness", "Understanding" and "Vocabulary" one can judge intelligence.

Subtest "Arithmetic" helps to determine not only the ability to solve arithmetic problems, but also the ability to concentrate, because the tasks are simple and require the subject to be collected rather than a mathematical gift.

The results of the Similarity subtest make it possible to judge the ability for logical thinking and the ability to generalize.

Number repetition is the least correlated with general intelligence. This subtest is solely aimed at measuring the amount of working memory. Wexler added it for diagnostic purposes: the inability to reproduce 4 digits in a row indicates dementia.

Now let's move on to the subtests of the non-verbal scale:

  • Encryption. This is a test for code substitutions. A key is given, where each digit corresponds to another digit. One and a half minutes given. It is necessary to sign a code under a numerical series of one hundred digits in accordance with the key. The more correctly encrypted digits, the higher the score.
  • Missing parts. 21 cards, each with a picture of a missing part. You need to determine what kind of detail it is. 20 seconds per card, for each correct answer - 1 point.
  • Block design. 40 tasks. The subject is given a red-white drawing and red-white cubes. It is necessary to assemble the figure indicated in the drawing. Evaluated time and accuracy.
  • Sequential pictures. 8 groups of pictures. Each group is a sequential story. The pictures are in the wrong order. The task of the subject is to arrange them in the correct sequence. Evaluation is determined by the time spent and correctness.
  • Assembling an object. 4 tasks. It is necessary to assemble a well-known object (a person, an elephant, etc.) from parts. Evaluated depending on the time and correctness of the assembly of the object.

It is worth noting that initially Wexler believed that the performance of the non-verbal scale depended on psychophysiological inclinations, but studies of the results of twins refute this hypothesis.

Subtest "Ciphering" helps to diagnose hand-eye speed, attention, coordination and perception.

"Missing details" allow you to determine the level of observation.

Motor coordination and visual synthesis are diagnosed with the help of the “Block Design” subtest, and the ability to synthesize the whole from parts is diagnosed with the help of the “Assembly of the object” subtest. The results of both tests depend on the level of development of sensorimotor coordination.

"Sequential pictures" report on the ability of the subject to organize the whole from parts, extrapolate and understand the situation.

After passing all the subtests, it is necessary to interpret them correctly in order to get the final result.
