Traditional personality profiles such as Myers- Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), FIRO B, DiSC® and Hogan instruments can be beneficial. They show you what your predisposition is to different behaviours.
The downside to personality-based tools is that they are difficult to use as a benchmark. Personality, in general, stays the same unless we have a significant life event. If the tool is robust and reliable, we should get the same results every time we do it.
Thinking and behaviour based tools, on the other hand, can be used as a benchmark and a measure of personal change. Because of this, my preference is to use the Human Synergistics International range of tools.
