It has always been our aim to make Personality Dimensions® as widely accessible to as many people as possible around the world.  You may remember earlier this year we asked you, the ones who deliver Personality Dimensions® all the time, where you wanted us to focus our efforts next.  Overwhelmingly you told us that you wanted to have PD Basics™ put online… and we’ve done just that!  We could have just put the paper-based assessment online, but that just isn’t our style… we wanted to give your more.  PD Basics Online™ has all the same parts as the paper-based assessment but we’ve added to the report to include other areas: Getting Along With the four personalities, Problems Caused By, Rewarding each of the personalities, and descriptions of Preferred Work Environments.

PD Basics™ was created with lower English literacy skills in mind.  It was painstakingly edited, reviewed, re-edited, and reviewed many times over to bring it to a reasonable and consistent grade level;  It falls somewhere between a grade 4 -5 on the Flesch–Kincaid readability test.  It uses the same concepts, and some of the same terminology at the original Personality Dimensions® assessment, but removes the colloquialisms, and slang terms that can be difficult to understand for adults who are learning English, or have lower literacy skills.

If you’re working with youth/teenagers, this assessment isn’t for you.  We have a different version of Personality Dimensions® for them – PD for Youth™.  PD for Youth™ uses phrases, terminology, and life experiences that are more in line with this age group, and is more relatable.  Right now it is available in the paper-based format with Participant Packs™ and Dimensions Cards™, but we are working hard to get it up and running online for the beginning of September.  PD for Youth Online™ will have a bunch of new content for the report, and all new Dimensions Cards™, and we’ll let you know when it’s ready.

Access to PD Basics Online™ has already been added to existing qualifying accounts on, but if you want to try it out for yourself, let us know and we can add a free credit to your account so you can see how it looks.  Email us at, or give us a call at 1-877-680-0200 / 905-760-0111.

Personality Dimensions® – Everything Counts

Warehouse BoxesJust as Santa Claus has to make his list and check it twice every year, Career/LifeSkills Resources Inc. has to do its annual inventory count… and there are a lot of Personality Dimensions® resources to list, and check twice; every Picture Card, every Dimensions card, and every Participant Pack needs to be accounted for.  The staff will be working tirelessly over the next two days to make this happen.  I suggested to management that we just count up the number of Inquiring Greens, Resourceful Oranges, Authentic Blues, and Organized Golds since there are always four.  Needless to say I was told to get back to counting!

During this time you may not be able to get us on the phone right away, but don’t worry, just leave us a detailed message, or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  We are also unable to ship any orders during this time.  If you are really in a bind, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.  If all goes smoothly… and it usually does, we will start shipping orders again this Friday.
