Lots of people want to learn about themselves with modern quizzes and personality “profilers” — just look on Facebook. I love supporting people who are eager to make sense of their findings.
Like C.G. Jung, I don’t use any one model of psychological types to put people into facile boxes. Rather than label people as this or that TYPE, I look simply to explain personal STYLE differences between the ways we function and interact with our surroundings, ourselves and each other. I guide you to gain clarity of strengths and “blind spots” in order to promote a better understanding of human psychology in general and your own way of seeing the world in particular.
Here are a few quizzes — you can’t fail! — for you to use to find your style in relationships. This information tells you about your likes and dislikes, your edges and strengths, your direction and potential obstacles on the journey. As Master Dogen says, “These insights are not the moon, they are simply pointers to the moon” (that which can never be known in its entirety).
The Enneagram is my favorite tool for understanding your style and blind spots when trying to access your creative goals, but the quiz findings are only the beginning to growth.
The Enneagram also points you toward simple ways to unlock your authentic work in the world AND gives you tailored, just-for-you, methods to work with the obstacles that could trip you up.
Other Personality Profilers can help identify your psychological style in relationships but aren’t as endlessly helpful to your mind-body-spirit as working with the Enneagram method. Still, I’ve added these other quizzes (below) for people who want a well-rounded write up of their overall way of being and seeing in relationship to life, work, and love.

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in our lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in our behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways we prefer to use our perception and judgment. This questionnaire points to 16-varieties of personality — perceiving/motivations for behaving.
This particular “love language” profiler will explain your primary love language, i.e., what it means, and how you can use it to connect to others.
If you find you’re making goals but not sticking to them and aren’t ready to work with me, here’s a tool you might like to use on your own. I know I’ve tried everything before hiring a coach (they’re not cheap!).
If you think you might double your chances for success with a coach, be sure to set up an appointment with me to learn how I might support you. All of these quizzes are fun but they can be transformative with a translator. I’m looking forward to helping you get clear about your findings and how they relate to your creative direction going forward.
Remember, as George Eliot says, It’s never too late to be who you might have been. Returning to our fundamental, wholehearted truth is possible at any stage in our lives.
