Introducing the EdLeader Personality Test

Managing Editor

Personality tests are fun.
Some people derive valuable insights from them. Others simply use them to validate what they already know about themselves. Most just like to see which category they fall in so they can compare, contrast, and laugh about it with others.
That’s kind of the idea behind our latest experiment: The EdLeader Personality Test. We identified nine recognizable archetypes from various levels of school and district leadership based on years of observation, then came up with a way for you to find their closest match. The logic behind the 40-question test has undergone thorough testing and validation. We’ve even provided some recommendations based on common pitfalls encountered by each archetype.
Even with all that going for it, the most important thing we wanted to accomplish was to bring something fun into this niche field, in which so many people are counted on to shape and execute a vision for entire communities.
Hats off to you, edleaders. Enjoy.


Follow-up resources: Survey your culture

You may know your personality type, but what does it mean for your culture (and your learning environment)? Use The School Culture Survey Template to get a handle on how your school and/or district is perceived.
