Personalised One-on-One Tuition

Personality Type Quiz 



This quiz asks questions typical of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory.

The purpose of knowing about personality type is to understand and appreciate differences between people. All personality types are equal, but some personality types work better with some personailty types compared to others. This can be very important when it comes to tuition, as the student and tutor must be able to understand each other for the student to gain the maximum benefit from each tutorial.

The MBTI questionaire sorts for preferences and does not measure trait, ability or character.

Once you have completed this questionaire, an email will be sent to you with information about your strongest personality type.
