Free Assessments – Use With Caution

Want to know your IQ or how emotionally mature you are in just a few minutes?
I have added a new page that contains links to various types of free assessments that will help you know yourself better. The page is

From Archetypes to Shadow Assessments, all of these are free. Some will take you 20 to 30 minutes to take and some you can complete in under five minutes.

Caution: Don’t believe the answers from any one test. I took three different Enneagram assessments and came up with three different answers. So be skeptical, but also be curious.

Ultimately, knowing yourself is an inside job. Taking an assessment is like pausing on your journey to check your map and see if where the map says you should be matches where you think you are. Here’s a simple example.

I took several Emotional Maturity assessments and learned that I could easily wrack up a perfect score because I could figure out what the “correct” answer was in just about every case. However, knowing the best answer and knowing what is really true for me may be different. When taking some of these assessments, I have learned that my tendency to want to look good may get in the way of seeing clearly into my own shadows. Consider this when you take these assessments.
