Discover your complete personality in 45 dimensions
Most assessments try to describe you with a few traits or a single personality type.
With TraitLab's advanced trait assessment, you'll get precision estimates of 45 personality dimensions. So not only will you see how introverted or extraverted you are, but you'll learn what your unique expression of introversion or extraversion looks like.
Go beyond simple personality types
Many assessments only focus on a narrow sliver of personality. Why limit yourself to just one way of understanding yourself?
TraitLab combines multiple approaches to personality — the Big Five, 16 Personality Types, the Enneagram, Strengths, and Interests — so you can connect these different perspectives and see the bigger picture.

Discover your natural superpowers
Typical assessments ignore the powerful set of character strengths created by your unique blend of personality traits.
TraitLab's Strengths Profile includes detailed descriptions of your individual strengths and practical tips on exercising them in daily life, so you can lean into what you do best.
