The Personality Type Card Sort Exercise is designed to provide trainers, coaches and facilitators with a structured and reliable means of initiating a development discussion with an individual.

Studies at Hull University show that “users preferred the CSE over other methods of personality measurement due to its interactive nature” (Jamie Miller, 2009)

The card sort adopts a Jungian model of personality and has the further advantage of providing individuals with an indication of their personality type. Popular Jungian-based models include MBTI*, Insights, JTI & Jigsaw.

The candidate selects statements from a predetermined list that best describe their preferred way of relating to the world around them.   Based on the statements chosen, it is possible to identify an indication of the candidate’s preferred personality type.

It is an ideal tool for Coaches, Counsellors and Trainers to use in their work. It is a valuable support to many training and development programmes. It is also an effective tool to use at the start of a coaching programme as a means of starting the conversation

The Personality Type Card Sort exercise has a universal appeal. It works equally well with adults and young people.
