Let’s say you’re unwell. You go to the doctor. Right? And, you expect to pay a consultation fee, yes?
Unless there’s some bulk bill-type set-up where the Government foots your bill, you plan to pull out your wallet after the appointment. Well, maybe you’d consider the free service if all you need is a script re-fill or a sick certificate.
But it’s your health, after all. Why would you risk it, just to save $30?
Well, the same premise applies to personality profiling tests. To get anything of value, it comes with a cost. And, so it should. This way, you know time and resources have been invested into producing it. That’s just how it works.
Why are we telling you what you might find obvious?
We often speak to career advisors and teachers in schools. The conversation goes something like this.
We love Tick…
We need Tick…
But, there are free resources online that do the job.
We understand resources are limited, particularly in the education setting. And while choosing those free resources over paid, personality profile testing isn’t necessarily a matter of life or death, it’s more serious than educators understand.
Because you could ‘misdiagnose’ a student – labelling them with bad behaviour, when really, it was a cry for attention. Personality profiles will also help the students better understand how they operate, so they can make decisions based on their strengths. This makes for more self-aware and emotionally-intelligent individuals.
These scientifically-based insights can help students make career choices, navigate conflict, and embrace the opportunities they know they’ll excel at.
Free resources don’t have decades of scientific research and history behind them. In most cases, they’re put together quickly, as a precursor for a paid product. You won’t find heritage or IP behind the tool.
Even well-established products can be difficult to understand. For example, people who complete the Myer’s Briggs personality tests tell us they forget their complex acronym quickly.
While an established system, their 16 profiles in a school environment, is simply too much. And for those who do want to learn more about their personality group, the next step are paid eBooks. So, you end up paying for the heart of the information, anyway.
On the other hand, with a Tick profile, students will be one of just four personality types. We’ve associated a bird type to each: Eagle, Peacock, Owl or Dove.
We’re happy to send you free samples to give you a glimpse of the depth of our personality profiling questionnaires. Just fill out your details in the red form.
