Personality tests are very helpful if you want to understand yourself and learn how to understand others. More and more employers are making use of personality tests when they are recruiting new employees or are managing existing ones.

Although, a personality test cannot tell how a person behaves to 100%, it can already give a general insight regarding a person’s personality.

Personality tests are important for yourself for example if you would need to categorize yourself or when you want to describe different aspects of your personality. Although a lot of people tend to think they know who they are, there are always personality aspects they are not aware of. Therefore, personality tests are not only helpful if it comes to job recruitment, but also if you want to understand yourself better and get to know your strengths and weaknesses. If you understand yourself you know what you want and by that you know how to become a happy and satisfied person. Besides that, it is important to get to know your own behaviour while interacting with others such as friends or colleagues. Especially in group work, it is important to figure out the own role and to understand how to communicate with others in the best way. By knowing which person is what type the way to the outcome can be even more productive.
