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.

When you have answered all the questions, click on the "Score it!" button to receive your free Keirsey Temperament Report. To take the KTS-II in a language other than English, please choose from the languages in the pull-down selection below.

We offer the KTS II in several languages. You may select the language in which you take the Sorter below. At this time, all temperament reports are delivered in English.
