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.
It is important that you answer all the questions from the perspective of what feels real
for you and not try to give answers that you think would sound like how you should behave in
any particular situation. The objective is to understand yourself as you really are – not the
way, for example, you must react in your job, or others expect you to behave. Effectiveness
as an individual or leader is not based on any particular personality style. It is really
about how well you know yourself and others.
There are two choices for each question. If both seem to apply, choose the one that feels
most comfortable to you. There are no right or wrong answers – about half the population
agrees with whatever choice you make.
