Keirsey Assessments are the product of more than seven decades of research on human behavior. The Keirsey Temperament model first appeared in the bestselling books, Please Understand Me® and Please Understand Me II, by Dr. David Keirsey. Our tools have been translated into 18 different languages, and has been used by over 50 million people from 140 different countries. The Keirsey Assessments are the most widely utilized temperament and personality assessments in the world.
Our tools are designed to help you transform your understanding of who you are, why you do what you do, and how to build effective relationships. Depending on your needs, our resources address a wide range of personal and professional situations. You can choose from a spectrum of different Keirsey reports and facilitator resources (i.e. presentation materials; workshop aids, interactive activities, etc.). Based on which Keirsey products you select, you can learn about how your temperament and personality relates to matters in both your personal and professional life. Our reports and facilitator resources address how temperament and personality impacts leadership, the workplace, teamwork, selling and buying, marketing, learning, careers, and romance. You can learn more about each of our products here.
The Keirsey Assessments are used by the Fortune 500, Global 1000, world governments, military organizations, academic institutions, non-profit/social enterprises, entrepreneurial start-ups, therapists, and faith based groups worldwide. Our resources are utilized by individuals, teams, and organizations to help people understand themselves and the people in their lives.

They are called: The Resolution Factor; The Synergy Factor; The Leadership Factor; The Creativity Factor; The Selling Factor; and The Strategic Factor.
"Utilizing Keirsey has helped me better understand how my co-workers are wired, what makes them tick, what they strive for, what is difficult for them to deal with, and it has been helpful for us to share with each other what our temperaments are. It has helped me understand myself a little better, and gives a little more insight into how I am wired."
