Personality Test

The Keirsey Temperament Sorter®-II (KTS®-II) is the most widely used personality instrument in the world. It is a powerful 70 question personality instrument that helps individuals discover their personality type. The KTS-II is based on Keirsey Temperament Theory™, published in the best selling books, Please Understand Me® and Please Understand Me II, by Dr. David Keirsey.

The KTS-II has been translated into 18 different languages, and has been used by over 40 million people from 140 different countries. It first appeared in Please Understand Me (1978), and was updated in the successor Please Understand Me II (1998). The KTS-II is currently being used by the Fortune 500, Global 1000, the US Government / Military, by major academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and faith based organizations worldwide.

According to Keirsey Temperament Theory, there are four basic temperament groups which describe human behavior. Keirsey’s four temperaments are referred to as Artisans™, Guardians™, Rationals™ and Idealists™. These four temperaments can be further subdivided, often referred to as “Character Types”. There are four types of Artisans, four types of Guardians, four types of Rationals, and four types of Idealists.
