The Shipley Insight Temperament Test is one of several personality assessments offered by Shipley. This particular assessment is based on the patented Insight Personality Instrument, a tool which has been used to enhance the relationships and interaction of millions of people around the world since 1993.
It is built on the foundational work of many noted philosophers, psychologists and personality researchers, including: Empedocles, Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, Galen, Paraculsus, Erich Adickes, Edward Spranger, Ernst Kretschmer, Erich Fromm, Isabel Myers, and David Keirsey. These personalitologists believed that people can be roughly categorized into one of four temperaments.
Everyone has a unique personality spectrum that is formed from these four major temperaments. The objective of this assessment is to find out how much of each temperament is in your personality style. After you complete the Insight Temperament Test you will receive a copy of the results by email. This assessment will take about 15 minutes to complete.
