Golden Personality Type Profiler (GPTP) is a well-established (over 25 years) online personality questionnaire drawn from the known theories of personality: Carl Jung's theory of psychological type (the most well-known Jungian instrument being MBTI®) as well as the principle works of Trait theorists and the "Big Five" model of personality.
Five global scales
The global scales are E/I, S/N, T/F and A/Z. Golden also contains a fifth global scale Tense/Calm (corresponding to the BIg 5 trait scale of Neuroticism) which is an important part of personality. In addition there are 18 sub-facet scales and these offer a depth of insight and uniqueness to an Individual's profile.
Training is required to use the Golden but we offer conversion, qualification and Level B (now test user: personality) training. Training is offered as public or IN-HOUSE workshops (where we come to you if you have sufficient staff requiring training).

The instrument was developed by John Golden in the USA in the 1980s and is already used by hundreds of practitioners in their L&D work in the UK and around the world.
Golden can be used in a number of applications including: Coaching, Leadership development, Career Counselling, Team building, Conflict Management, Improving Communication and Stress counselling.
FIVE global preference areas
In addition to the four traditional Jungian areas of preference, Golden contains a fifth global scale, Tense-Calm, based on the "Big Five" trait of Emotional Stability.
Tense-Calm looks at stress-related pressures and the degrees of confidence and optimism a person has about their life challenges. The significance of this extra dimension fifth factor is that users can explore the various effects of stress on Type development.
Each global scale includes facet scales that represent more specific components of the global scale. Such specificity is important for understanding differences among individuals who score similarly on the global scales. These facets offer valuable insight in to similarities and differences within the same global type.
The instrument is completed online and an individual report is automatically generated.
The individual reports include the following sections:
