Following are a partial list of assessments offered by Core Choices Consulting as part of our various programs – from career transition to leadership development and coaching. Assessments are also available as standalone products, each involving an interpretive session via phone or in person. All are available online unless otherwise noted. Additional psychometric and assessment tools are available as appropriate to the individual or group program.
The assessment price includes a report (typically pdf) emailed to you and a 50 minute phone interpretation / discussion.
We often recommend utilizing combinations of 2-3 assessments in conjunction with each other, in order to add greater insight and offer targeted recommendations for moving forward. For example, a leadership assessment "cocktail" which we often utilize when coaching leaders includes: MBTI II, EQi, and FIRO-B.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) II
Available from Consulting Psychologists Press (CPP), MBTI II reveals detailed personality preferences which can lead to greater self awareness, improved choices, more effective interactions and communications with others, and career exploration/fit. MBTI is among the most validated assessment instruments available, with over 1 million administered each year. It is often utilized in combination with other instruments for maximum impact. $115.

Golden Personality Profiler
The Golden Personality Profiler was developed by John Golden, EdD, in the 1980s and provides a detailed report very similar to the MBTI II, with four primary dichotomies and several sub-sets under each. Like MBTI, the four dichotomies explained are: E-I, S-N, T-F, and J-P. The assessment boasts high validity and reliability and, in my own experience with clients, correlates closely with MBTI. $105.
