    Default Various personality tests I've not heard of, based on Jung

    http://www.evaluationstore.com/other_tests.php

    I'm not familiar with a lot of the tests mentioned on this link. (I just glanced at it but I think you have to pay to take these - I might google some of them though.)

    Any thoughts on any of these - similar to MBTI? Different, better? They're all supposed to be based on Jung's ideas.

    Carl Jung(1920’s)
    Swiss psychiatrist who developed a number of psychological archetypes and together with some aspects of Sigmund Freud’s analytical psychology work provides the platform for many behaviourally based psychometric tests.

    Myers Briggs(1940’s)
    http://www.myersbriggs.org
    Developed from Carl Jung’s work by Isabel Briggs-Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) takes Jung’s 4 typologies and develops them into 16 ‘personality types’.

    Kiersey(1970’s)
    David Kiersey’s work refers both to the ancient ‘4 temperaments’ of Aristotle, Hippocrates and others; then adds 20th century adaptations from Jung plus the Myers-Briggs to give another variation of the 16 human personality types approach.
    They're not all based on Jung. Just these, pretty much.

    Eysenck(1950’s)
    Hans Eysenck’s approach draws on Galen’s 4 temperaments although he argued that a greater degree of genetic personality inheritance was present – we are largely factors of our genes, not blank canvasses for society to draw on.
    Original ancient temperaments, but with Neuroticism introduced as the other dimension beside extraversion. Hence, part of the first grain of the FFM. (In most other theories, the other dimension would correspond more to what became Agreeableness).

    DISC(1930’s)
    http://www.discprofile.com
    Initially developed by William Marston in the 1920’s, although he never used DISC as a behavioural assessment or personality test. Others developed an analytical assessment from the 1930’s onwards, although 2 of the 4 letters (S & C) have changed meaning since Marston’s research.
    This is basically the start of a long series of instruments where the Galen temperaments and original temperament dimensions are renamed, and thus very similar to another one, called Social Styles, and in the 16 types, the Interaction Styles.
    Different companies online seem to be offering different versions of it (I guess it is a licensed franchise), such as allowing blended types.

    Firo-B (1950’s)
    http://www.opp.co.uk/FIRO-B.aspx
    The Firo-B test or assessment (standing for Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation-Behavior ) is based on 3 dimensions – inclusion, control and affection. These are expressed as ‘expressed’ and ‘wanted’ to give a 6 box structure.
    This is the one that the stuff I talk about (Arno Profile system) is based on. Expressed and wanted (those are the true "dimensions" of the behavior matrix) are pretty much the original temperament factors (though renamed in each different instrument) and basically come out in typology as both informing/directing (Interaction Styles) and structure/motive (Keirsey's temperaments). I/C/A are three separate matrices (not "dimensions") consisting of the two dimensions on each "level" Inclusion fits Interaction Style, and Control fits Keirsey's groups. Affection is a kind if "interaction style", but on a deeper level of relationship.

    The difference is that FIRO does not claim to mention inborn type, but only changeable behavior. APS took the instrument, tweaked the administering process to measure inborn temperament (using the ancient humors plus one, along with moderate and compulsive variations), and it seems very accurate.

    LIFO(1960’s)
    http://www.lifeorientations.com
    Life Orientations was developed by Stuart Atkins, Elias Porter and Alan Katcher drawing heavily from the work of Eric Fromm and Carl Rogers. It is a variant of the 4 profile theme which has been evident for over 2,500 years.
    Another two factor system, and thus similar to Social Styles, etc.

    15FQ(1930’s)
    http://www.15fq.com
    Building on the pioneering work by Ray Cattell (1905-1998), 15FQ has taken the original concepts, modified and developed them, and created a 16 part personality framework.

    16PF(1940’s)
    http://www.opp.co.uk/16pf.aspx
    16PF is Ray Cattell’s 1949 version of personality profiling assesses and reports on 16 personality factors. The tool is now in its 5th edition.
    Heard of these, but that many factors seem to be overkill, and definitely hard to remember. Hence, apparently (next) a move to narrow them down (to five).

    (Another one that is similar in having so many factors, that we have an ongoing thread on, is PersonalDNA, which is based on 13 factors).

    Five Factor Model(1930’s)
    Originally quoted by L.L.Thurlstone in 1933, and developed by Allport and Odbert, the five factors are Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism (OCEAN, or CANOE if rearranged).

    The big 5(1990’s)
    Developed by Costa and McCrae in 1992 this test, also known as the five factor model, bills itself as an evolution from the 4 part tests and traces its roots to Friske’s criticisms of Cattell’s work in 1949. Terminology has changed since 1992 and the 5 traits are now Stability, Extraversion, Originality, Accommodation and Consolidation.
    Of course, two versions of the same thing. Of course, there is a third one we use a lot, SLOAN. ("Global 5"--Social, Limbic, Organized, Accomodating, Non-Curious/Inquisitive).

    It seems to have the most respect in the broader psychological field. When statistically correlated with MBTI's four dichotomies, Neuroticism is the one the most underrepresented. The Myers' had actually at one point done a factor analysis to add a fifth factor, called Comfort-Discomfort to their work, but it was dismissed as too negative-sounding. However, a special version of MBTI, called the type Differentiation Indicator, does use the factor. It's generally used in mental institutions, from what I've heard.

    OPQ(1980’s)
    http://opq.co.uk/
    Launched in 1984 by Saville & Holdsworth, the Occupational Personality Questionnaire is widely used as an assessment of an individual’s competence at work.
    Never heard. The domain seems to be vacant.

    SDI (1960’s)
    http://uk.personalstrengths.com/
    SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) was originally developed by Elias Porter who studied under Carl Rogers. The SDI test gives results in 3 colours in a triangle format and focuses on motivation rather than behaviour per se.
    This one I've never heard of either. Though it does remind me a bit of Symlog http://www.symlog.com/menu-01a.asp (Which uses sililar geometrical system to correlate itself to various systems, including MBTI)

    Insights(1980’s)
    www.insights.com
    Dundee father and son Andi and Andy Lothian developed this version of the 4 part behavioural profile. Andi had a background in music and insurance and Andy was a merchant banker with a degree in economics and computer science.

    PRISM(1990’s)
    www.prism-profiling.com
    Using a graphical web incorporating the standard colours, PRISM presents the output as analysis, drive, stability and expression
    Color based systems like the one we have a thread on now. These are usually similar to Keirsey, if not outright copies, though without using the types.

    Never heard. Brand new, and as it says, it's that site's own offering.

    I see what you mean. It in fact looks like a cross between DISC (and Personality Styles) and Keirsey or at least the other color systems which parallel Keirsey.
