Do you like finding out more information about your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs? Here are some free assessments that you may enjoy. (Those are my subjective personal ratings, choose what fits your needs.)
Are you happy? (Rating: 2 star)
This tool was developed by Oxford Brooks University. In honesty, it's boring but it will give you a quantitative measure of your happiness and the accompanying article provides some definitions. The other assessments are more interesting and provide detailed results, but hey, it's a quick measure to provide simple feedback.
Happy for no reason? (Rating: 4 stars)
Do you want to be unjustifiably happy? Author Marci Shimoff wrote the "Happy for No Reason" questionnaire as a complement to her book of the same name. It's more of an educational tool than a psychometric assessment and includes some great tips, guidance, and exercises for increasing your focus on joy. Try them on and see if they fit!
Do you know your personal strengths? (Rating: 3 stars)
How do you leverage your personal strengths to make work more meaningful and engaging? A great first step is to identify your personal aptitudes. Try out this strength finder and see if it provides you some insight.
What does your personality say about you? (Rating: 4 stars)
This updated personality tool uses the acronym format introduced by Myers-Briggs [Introversion (I) or Extraversion (E), Intuition (N) or Sensing (S), Thinking (T) or Feeling (F), Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)] however, redefines several Jungian traits and introduced an additional one. The detailed interpretation description provided will make you smile as you recognize yourself.
What are your character strengths and virtues? Are you thankful? (Rating: 5 stars)
The Authentic Happiness website was developed by the University of Pennsylvania and provides a number of questionnaires to assess character strengths, happiness, gratitude, flourishing, and other areas that will help you to positively conspire. Note that Martin Seligman, known as the founder of Positive Psychology, is the Director of the Penn Positive Psychology Center and leading authority in the fields of Positive Psychology, resilience, learned helplessness, depression, optimism and pessimism. This site is highly recommended and requires a login and password.
My favourite? Via Character Strength - 240 questions so be prepared to take some time. The value is in the questions themselves and the interpretation is brief.
Are you emotionally agile? (Rating: 5 stars)
The Emotional Agility Quiz is 10 questions regarding your emotional beliefs and actions with personal feedback on how to be more effective and intentional with your thoughts and emotions. Susan David, Ph.D., is an award-winning Psychologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and author of "Emotional Agility". The questions themselves are insightful and the subsequent emailed videos are helpful and I love Susan David's Ted Talk.
