Ours is one of the few free tests that is subjected to statistical controls and validation. Even so, please keep in mind that tests are merely indicators – a first peek at the index to get you started.

Personality Tests, Team Role Tests, and Career Tests, whether they are professional or "official" tests like the MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®), the NEO PI-R, Five Factor Model Test, or free online Winnie the Pooh personality tests like this one, are merely indicators to help you find your personal outlook on the relevant indices measured. No test ever devised can designate your personality style with complete accuracy or reliability and no personality test can replace familiarizing yourself with the works of the relevant theories in the field.
