Personality is one of the most widely studied psychological constructs. People inherently have a curiosity about what makes us who we are. Personality assessments can be helpful, but not all are. If we aren't careful, we can become quick to label ourselves and others based on what an assessment says. However, if we use the right tools, they can help us understand the uniqueness of who we are, giving methods to accelerating our growth.
