The Fastest and Most Accurate Type Code Instrument We've Found

If you're MBTI® Certified/Qualified, you can buy the PTITM - an instrument that helps identify one's 4-letter type code. (It's what we use with our clients instead of the MBTI because it's so quick and costs less. Plus, it generates the right type code more than all the other type code instruments we've tried.)

Not MBTI certified? Get certified to use the PTI in our exclusive Personality Intelligence Certification Program.

Extraverted Intuition 

Little Joe's mother jogged three miles one day and still had her workout clothes on that evening, which included her hair in a ponytail and a stretchy headband on her bangs. Right before bed, Joe went up to his mother and said, "You would look like a pretty girl if you changed that think in your hair." His mother responded, "Oh really?" He continued, "Yes. And you should change your shirt. And your pants. And your shoes."

Jung Quote of the Month

"How else could it have occurred to man to divide the cosmos, on the analogy of day and night, summer and winter, into a bright day-world and a dark night-world peopled with fabulous monsters, unless he had the prototype of such a division in himself in the polarity between the conscious and the invisible and unknowable unconscious?"*
