Have You Taken the 3 Tests for Success?

We all know that knowledge is power, and one of the first steps to success is knowing yourself. This means being aware not only of your strengths, but also of your weaknesses. It also means knowing how to make the most of the unique combination that ultimately makes you you. While this will by no means be a comfortable process, there are, thankfully, ways to streamline the process.

A good starting point is taking the three tests that have become known to unveil a broad spectrum of traits, namely the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, Cap Style Assessment and DiSC profiling. Below is a short summary of the three respective tests that we highly recommend you do to understand how to best work on your weaknesses and capitalise on your strengths to achieve the business and career stress you deserve…

1. Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, this test will be able to determine your personal and professional personality type in no time! It’s a quick, free online test that will group you according to 16 personality types and should help you understand yourself (and others) better without judgement – especially when working in a team.

2. Cap Style Assessment
We all wear different caps at different times and around different people. We are, after all, only human – each with unique talents, needs and attributes. With the Cap Style Assessment, you won’t often find someone who is 100% suited to one Cap Style (although it’s not impossible!). Most people tend to lean towards two dominant styles, for example Blue-Green. There are four types of caps, namely the Red Cap (The Army General), Blue Cap (The Bookkeeper), Yellow Cap (The People Pleaser) and Green Cap (The Innovator).

3. DiSC Profiling
DiSC is an acronym that stands for the four main personality profiles described in the DiSC model: (D)ominance, (i)nfluence, (S)teadiness and (C)onscientiousness. DiSC profiling helps you get to the heart of who you are and how you learn. We all learn differently and this, in turn, affects how we perform. For example, if you know your learning style, then you are better equipped to select the right type of learning method for your unique needs.

Using any of the above-mentioned tests will undoubtedly equip you, your family or your colleagues to better understand yourself and others – how you think, how you approach life, how you learn, work, react and so much more. Why not delve into one of these tests and challenge those around you to do the same? It should make for some fascinating conversation and be educational at the same time!
