TX Getting to Know Your Personality and Your Partner

Posted by: Dr. Justin D'Arienzo, Psy.D., ABPP

The Keirsey Temperament and Character Tests are similar to the Meyers-Briggs test. I have provided a link below for each person to complete the 70 questions Keirsey Temperament test. After completing the test, your four-letter profile will be emailed to you. Once you have your four-letter profile, look below to see your profile name. Understanding your profile and your partner’s profile provides you with greater awareness about your needs and perceptions as well as your partners.

Exercise 3

Take the personality test by clicking on the link below. Spend 30 minutes and discuss the following after taking the test: After you each have your four-letter profile, return to this page and see the description of your temperaments. Discuss some of the benefits and challenges you each face given your profile in your relationship. There is a great deal of information online that you should explore if you are more interested in understanding how these personality types interact.

Please use the link below to determine your personality type. You do NOT need to purchase any reports from this site. 

If you are having difficulty with the Keirsey website, take the MBTI which has been attached. You will have to score the MBTI yourself, but it is very easy to do. Your profile should be the same on both tests. I have attached the MBTI for your convenience based on a few complaints from past users that the Keirsey website had been difficult to navigate.
