Online psychometric tests look deceivingly simple from a user’s perspective. Just answer some questions, click a button and voila, there’s a full and elaborate report, tailored to your uniqueness and often comparing you with thousands of others. This is exactly how we want it to be for you!

The underlying reality is that true psychometric tests are highly knowledge-intensive technological products, resulting from input from the full stack of psychology, psychometrics, webserver management, custom software development, textual interpretations, graphical representations, UX design and large scale data management. For almost 20 years we are doing just that.

Our entire team of experts, employees, freelancers, authors and associated companies guarantee that our tests are as easy and simple to use as you experience them to be, and reach well over 100.000 users globally. Reliably and valid. Every day.
