Personality Testing

Personality Testing

Personality testing can identify specific characteristics that can be useful when making diagnoses, understanding underlying factors contributing to problems, and making appropriate treatment recommendations.  Personality testing can also identify personality as a whole and is sometimes used by employers to determine appropriateness for certain type of jobs, and by courts when determining ability to parent and competency issues. There are times when personality testing may be court ordered or requested by a third party (e.g., school, employer, etc.).

An abundance of scientific research and thinking has gone into the topic of personality test development. Personality tends to refer to one’s pattern of relating to others. Personality traits tend to be relatively stable over time and across situations. All testing is conducted with the most recent versions of tests available.  Each test used meets the local school board requirements of an outside evaluator. Confidentiality is maintained except where provided by law and results will not be disseminated to outside parties without a client’s express written permission or as required by law.
