The 16 PF is a personality test developed by Cattell. While the complete test is much more lengthy, and the results much more inclusive, a shortened version of the test can be taken online for free. This brief, free screening test is more like a combination of the 16PF and the Myers- Briggs Test. The results are fun to read and fairly accurate, especially considering that you are only taking an abbreviated version of the test. There is no need to buy a more in-depth test report; the free report is sufficient for this class.
Follow the link below to take the test. It should take about 5-10 minutes to complete. Answer honestly (no one will see the results but you!). What were your results? How accurate was the test in describing you?https://www.16personalities.com/
