“The Golden is so much more than just a Jungian personality type test. The Golden is a universal personality tool that combines five of the most widely accepted and respected theories of personality, including the five factor, trait, temperament, general adaptation/stress and Jung’s psychological type theory into one comprehensive and elegant model. These theories are reported in the form of the five global scales and 38 facet scales of the Golden.

The Golden also achieves significant advances in personality assessment and measurement. Advanced item format and content, scoring methods, report content, support materials and training for the Golden all in an online format distances itself from other Jungian assessments, as well as all other assessments of personality.” Golden LLC
