It's time to finally give up personality assessments

However much we argue that personality assessments create more self-awareness, there are much richer ways to accomplish this, with fewer costs. When people find new labels for themselves, it makes it more likely they will limit themselves to fixed rather than growth mindsets. Labels make us more mindless and less mindful.

We foster growth mindsets and mindfulness when we help people discover the breadth and depth of their strengths and passions, far beyond personally typing labels.
