Fundamental Interpersonal Relationship Orientation-Behavior (FIRO-B)-
An instrument to evaluate your interpersonal style with people (both expressed and observable) and behavior that is wanted and not obvious to others.


Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI)-
A personality inventory to understand how we interface with the outside world, collect information, make decisions, and manage our lives. Very helpful for couples and career decisions.
