Majors Personality Type – Elements

The Majors Personality Type-Elements™ (MajorsPT-E™) assessment is a concise and highly accurate instrument utilizing Jungian personality types. By using newer methods of asking and weighting the questions it is faster to complete and provides more accurate results than other comparable psychological type instruments.

The results of the MajorsPT-E assessment give:

  • Insights into the eight Jungian mental processes;
  • Challenges in personality expression;
  • The common 16 personality type information, and;
  • Individual differences within type.

Additionally, the all NEW “Elements of Personality Formation™” statements help your clients understand some of the complex ways they interact with others and respond to situations.

The Majors PT-Elements™ comprises a 127-items questionnaire resulting in a client- and professional report.

The client report provides results on:

  • The dichotomies of Energy acquisition and distribution, (Extraversion (external) and Introversion (internal));
  • Perceiving or attending to information (Sensing and iNtuiting);
  • Deciding or making judgments (Thinking and Feeling);
  • Orientation to living (Judgment and Perception);
  • The individual’s 16-type indication;
  • Results on the 32 Elements sub-scales, which illuminate personality differences within the dichotomy or type.

The professional report gives:

  • The numerical information that is the bases of the client report
  • The Personality Formation Scores and the 8-Process Scores (reported information on the use of 8-Jungian mental functions).

Together, these reports help you give accurate and constructive feedback to your clients. You can make practical use of many of the elements of Jungian type previously unassessed.

The MajorsPT-E™ is able to do this because it is built on innovative psychometric development and many decades of research on psychological type. It does not use a forced choice format for item responses. Instead, the MajorsPT-E™ uses levels of similarity to provide clarity of results. By using graduated response scales, not only do you receive information about a choice decision (direction), you also have knowledge of the level of similarity between the person and the response (intensity). This new form of scoring is called Differential Intensity Weighting (DIW). The addition of levels in the response format (and the corresponding DIW scoring) of the MajorsPT-E™ adds new information that improves the precision of identifying the individual’s natural preference.
