Welcome to our FAQ, we are so happy to have you here.
We have tried to answer the most common questions.

Is the “Car Model” a new system of personality typology?

No! Personality Hacker has not tried to reinvent the wheel. While there will always be exciting new discoveries in any theory, the foundation of personality type theory should be preserved.

The Car Model is simply a metaphor to help explain the work originally laid out by Carl Jung (in his book Psychological Types), and expanded upon by Isabel Briggs Myers (in her book Gifts Differing).

We believe that cognitive functions are where the true insights of type live, but they can be difficult to understand when first introduced to the system. The Car Model has helped thousands of people grasp these functions in a more accessible way.

Think of the Car Model as training wheels. It is often our aim to use the Car Model language interchangeably with more technical terms to guide people from ‘beginner’ to ‘intermediate’.

Listen to this episode of the Personality Hacker podcast on the Car Model for more information.

How do I figure out my personality type?

Discovering your best-fit personality type should be seen as a journey. For most, it takes more than one resource. Many people begin this journey using a personality type assessment to orient them.

No online assessment is 100% accurate, but can be used as a helpful starting point. After taking the assessment, read the personality profile and ask yourself if the explanation “fits like a glove.” Explore the type in depth, and use it as a launching pad for your best-fit type journey:

Take The Genius Personality Assessment  

What if I have tested as multiple types and feel I resonate a little bit with all of them?

That is completely normal! And it makes sense that personality types would have some resonance with each other. But your personality type should “fit like a glove,” so we recommend continuing your journey until you feel one type fits the best. That is why it’s called your “best-fit type.”
