What is your personality type?

Personality quizzes are important for me as a business coach, consultant and facilitator. It helps me communicate my session, tasks and activities. I use this information to deliver my lessons in a way that will resonate with that personality. 

What do I mean by that?

If a certain persona is data and numbers-driven, then I will deliver my outcomes in a data-driven way. For example, “Your staff retention is down by 35% based on the below findings…and if you improve the below 5 points you will see an increase of retention by 38% by 30th December”.

Data-driven personalities are most likely to respond better to information that is not an essay or with any emotional elements attached to the data. 

It is all about delivering lessons and conducting tailored coaching sessions in a way that will align with their personality and create real impact. 

While some people don’t like the idea of being labelled one or the other, acknowledging that we do have a dominant side that dictates how we manage, communicate, lead, or run the business’s day-to-day activities can be helpful.

The sooner we acknowledge this, the sooner we will learn what we need to develop further within ourselves. It will also provide us with more clarity on what personalities are making up our team. We can use this insight to ensure that we have the best person on the job. Getting this right can have a positive impact on the team’s performance.

Below are the 10 things personality quiz can assist with

  1. Self-awareness: Personality quizzes can help individuals, including business owners, gain a deeper understanding of their own personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, and preferences. This self-awareness is crucial for personal and professional development.
  2. Team Building: Understanding team members’ personalities can lead to more effective teamwork in a business setting. As a business coach, I use personality assessments to help teams communicate better, resolve conflicts, and leverage each member’s strengths.
  3. Leadership Development: I often work with individuals aiming to improve their leadership skills. Personality quizzes can provide insights into leadership styles and help clients tailor their approach to lead more effectively.
  4. Career Guidance: Personality assessments can aid in career coaching by helping clients identify roles and industries that align with their personality traits and values. This can be especially useful for individuals considering career changes or advancement.
  5. Conflict Resolution: Businesses often face conflicts and disagreements. As a business coach, I can use personality assessments to identify the root causes of conflicts and offer strategies for resolving them.
  6. Decision-Making: Understanding one’s personality can lead to better decision-making. Coaches can help clients make choices that align with their personality, values, and long-term goals.
  7. Stress Management: Different personality types may handle stress differently. As a coach, I can provide clients with tools and techniques tailored to their personality to manage stress effectively.
  8. Client Relationships: Business coaches must build rapport and communicate effectively with their clients. Knowing the client’s personality can aid in establishing a strong coach-client relationship and tailoring coaching methods to the client’s preferences.
  9. Goal Setting: Personality quizzes can help clients set more realistic and achievable goals by considering their natural tendencies and tendencies for growth.
  10. Personal Growth: Business coaching is about helping individuals grow personally and professionally. Personality assessments are valuable in this process, as they provide a foundation for targeted self-improvement efforts.


However, it’s important to use personality assessments responsibly and ethically. They should ensure that the assessments they use are validated, respect clients’ privacy, and are not used to stereotype or limit individuals but rather to empower them in their personal and professional development journey.
