Your Premium Profile holds the remaining 95% of insights into your personality type and goes way deeper than what you’ve already read. If you genuinely want to understand yourself and grow into the best version of yourself, then upgrading to the Premium Profile is a must. Think of it as your roadmap toward a happier, more successful, and more versatile you.

One of the most frequent responses from people after they take our personality test is, “I wish I had found this sooner.” For you, sooner is today, and that makes today the best time to upgrade to the Premium Profile. Today, you can take your happiness, success, and confidence into your own hands.

The first package (Premium Profile) gives you immediate access to the e-book for your personality type.

The second package (Premium Profile + Specialized Tests) gives you access to your e-book as well as 25+ specialized tests that will help you go deeper into how your personality traits affect your personal growth, relationships, and career.

  • What does my dark side look like?

We didn’t slap this test together for the fun of it. Our research-backed personality model incorporates the latest advances in psychometric research, combining time-tested concepts with robust, highly accurate testing techniques.

Since 2011, we’ve been studying personality types and their influence on a successful life. As a result, our free personality test has been taken more than half a billion times and translated into 37 languages, making it the most translated major personality test available on the internet today.

Offering our test for free is precisely why we’re able to make it highly reliable and accurate – because the respondent samples are so large. If you’re interested, learn more about our open approach to validity.

Your Premium Profile is way more than a full-length e-book. In addition, you’ll get immediate access to extra online exercises that will help you dive deeper into the premium content.
