Frequently asked questions

How is TraitLab different from other personality "tests"?

TraitLab is much more than a single, static personality test.

You'll learn about yourself through multiple personality models, including modern, research-based personality frameworks, like the Big Five, supported by thousands of published, peer-reviewed research studies.

TraitLab is regularly updated and extended as people answer additional questions. Over one million questions have been answered on TraitLab so far.

How is TraitLab different from other Big Five measures?

Results from most Big Five measures are usually just a few numbers, often with minimal practical context. TraitLab provides much more customized results and allows comparisons with other people.

Because your progress is saved as you go, you can easily take far more extensive assessments at your own pace, unlocking over 40 personality dimensions.

Who made TraitLab?

TraitLab was created by me, Greg Park. Hey there!

I'm a research psychologist by training (Ph.D. in psychology, focused on measurement) and wanted an easier way to learn about personality.

I was pretty skeptical of most of the widespread personality tools available today. Most of them felt outdated, clunky, or slightly sketchy.

Worst of all, I noticed that the most popular tools seem to have missed most of the interesting, valuable findings from personalty research over the last 30 years! I wanted to make something better.

It's just me here at TraitLab, so if you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please let me know.
