Free Assessments for Self-Discovery & Growth

Tests for Personality, IQ, Values, Needs, Communication & Love

Throughout my 35+ years as a marketing and PR executive, consultant, and coach, I've had considerable experience with workplace and personal assessments. Measuring for attributes such as personality type, emotional intelligence, problem-solving ability/IQ, values, needs, and communication style, I've employed these tests as instruments for applicant selection, staff mentoring, and team building. 

As Director of Marketing for ERC, a 100-year-old HR organization, I led the promotional communications effort of the coaching and assessments practice. When I was Vice President of Marketing for Wonderlic, the country's oldest workplace assessments company, I helmed the marketing of all the firm's personality, cognitive ability, and skills tests to noteworthy employers and educational institutions around the world. Working closely with Wonderlic's test research and development leadership team, I also provided editorial direction on test questions for the company's various assessments. 

Now as a career, relationship, life, and spiritual coach with a private practice, I use my favorite free assessments below to help clients gain greater self-awareness, achieve more professional satisfaction and success, develop deeper human connections, and live more fully and joyfully. I also often suggest that a client's significant others take the same tests to increase mutual understanding and appreciation.

Take These Free Assessments

If you're interested in interpreting your results on a deeper level, consider a complimentary consultation with me to discuss the implications in your personal and professional life and relationships. This is a great way for us to get acquainted with no commitment. Some test publishers offer a premium test and report for a fee, but all basic assessments and results are free. Most sites collect your name and email address to send you your results, but you can always opt out of future communications. Most tests can be taken in about 15 minutes or less.


Discover the traits, motivations, and emotions that drive you.


The Enneagram is a personality system with nine types that each have their own core drives, fears, and motivations. Your type is determined by your innate traits and shaped by your life experiences. Finding your Enneagram type can help you understand your life choices. The nine types of the Enneagram are divided into one of three centers of intelligence: Heart Types, Head Types, and Body Types. Take the test


The Big Five is different from other personality systems because its model is based on traits rather than types. The Big Five categorizes an inventory of traits into a spectrum of five common dimensions: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. We all have varying levels of these key personality factors that impact our thoughts, decisions, and behavior. Take the test


Based on the Myers Briggs 16 personality types, the NERIS Type Explorer personality test takes only 10 minutes to get a “freakishly accurate” description of who you are and why you do things the way you do. The assessment helps you understand others better, too, by learning what really drives, inspires, and worries different personality types. That knowledge can help build more meaningful relationships. Take the test.

Learn your communication style to improve your relationships.


Doing what comes naturally is not a reliable strategy for success in communicating.

With this mutual appreciation, behavior can be adapted to meet each other in the middle. This is a much more reliable approach to communication and relationship success. Take the test.
