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, 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.

I want a fun personality quiz. Is TraitLab right for me?

Nope! If that's your thing, you'll have better luck here.

Honestly, TraitLab is not fun, cute, or quick. TraitLab will ask you a lot of questions. And TraitLab will give a lot of information ... maybe more than you wanted to know. It's definitely not for everyone.

But, if you are looking for an incredibly detailed description of yourself, then TraitLab is probably exactly what you are looking for.

How much does TraitLab cost?

It's totally free to create an account on TraitLab and get loads of interesting results about your personality.

The free version is probably enough for most people. But for the career curious, self-improvers, data nerds, and personality enthusiastists who want to take their understanding to a completely different level, you can upgrade to TraitLab Plus.
