Archetype Test

Are you more of a Jester? What about a Wizard, or even a Revolutionary? This test will tell you which of the 12 employee archetypes you fall into. Gain a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and how they impact both your work and everyday life. We'll even suggest a few careers.

Performance Self Test

You want a promotion, a raise and to start climbing your career ladder sooner than later. Welcome to the club. While almost everyone is looking to advance professionally, far too few workers actually take the time to look in the mirror and perform an honest self-assessment. Use the Performance Self-Test to rate yourself on the most important characteristics of your job, and we’ll help you accentuate your strengths and improve on your weaknesses.
