Frequently asked questions

How is TraitLab different from other personality assessments?

Most online assessments are not based on real published research, so you can't connect your results to useful information about habits, career choices, relationships, and other practical aspects of your life.

TraitLab uses assessments and concepts from actual scientific research, then makes it easy to see how your results relate to important life areas.

Who made TraitLab?

TraitLab was created by me, Greg Park, Ph.D. Hi!

Before starting TraitLab, I spent years publishing research findings as a Ph.D. and postdoctoral researcher in the areas of personality and psychological measurement. I've always been fascinated by the field of personality psychology and how it can help us understand ourselves and each other.

I made TraitLab to make it easier for you to find reliable, valid, and scientifically-supported personality assessments.

Is TraitLab right for me?

Are you comfortable with investing about an hour to understand yourself better? Do you care about scientific validity? Do you like to get into details and data?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you'll probably love TraitLab. I made it for people like me — people looking for a very detailed, comprehensive picture of their personality, strengths, and interests, backed by scientific research.

But if you are looking for a quick and fun personality quiz, TraitLab is probably not the best fit for you.

How long is the TraitLab test?

Most people will start seeing their first results after about 10 minutes (about 100 questions).

If you want to see every possible result from TraitLab, the full assessment can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. However, you can always save your progress and take the assessment across several sittings.

How many questions are there in TraitLab?

There are over 700 potential questions currently in TraitLab, but you'll begin seeing results after the first 100 questions.

New questions are added regularly, but most questions are optional and only needed for advanced analyses.

How much does TraitLab cost?

There are several free tools here at TraitLab that can help you learn quite a bit about your personality.

For more advanced analyses of your traits, strengths, and interests, you can purchase TraitLab Plus.

Can I share my results with someone else?

Absolutely! If you want to share and compare your results with anyone, you can simply share your public profile.

For example, here's my own public profile here at TraitLab.
