Career Dimensions uses
several assessment tools
to assist in the evaluation of each
client's skills, interests, personality traits, values, working
conditions and leadership learning and communication styles.
Type Indicator® (MBTI®)
After more than 50 years, the MBTI
instrument continues to be the most trusted and widely used assessment
in the world for understanding individual differences and uncovering new
ways to work and interact with others.
This instrument is based upon Carl Jung's eight personality
