Most personality assessments are generalized, putting individuals into a “type” or “category” with some pre-determined sets of behaviors or strengths. This can be helpful on a broad spectrum, but not always sufficient to gauge the depth of an individual for personal growth and development. The Birkman®, instead, realizes that each individual has a bit of every “type” or “category” within them. Some are just more dominant than others. So instead of being a “type” or “category”, you are just you, a unique individual that isn’t contained within a box.
