Personality Types

Traitify has delineated major personality types as they relate to various areas of life, including work, play, and love. These personality types are grounded in psychodynamic principles, and behavioral psychological theories.

When a group of traits form a cluster, a type results. Personality types are the broad, differentiated category results being measured by a particular assessment. Types are reflected in an individual's preferences, coping style, patterns of behavior and relationship style. For example, the "Visionary" personality type in our Careers assessment tends to be thrill-seeking in his or her choice of work activities, and will likely show higher levels on traits such as high-energy, daring, enthusiastic, and aggressive.
