TypeFocus is a leading developer of online personality type resources. Established in 1997, TypeFocus is currently used by organizations across the world, including schools, employment agencies, colleges, universities and corporations.

Our mission is to enrich people's lives through the power of self awareness. We bring this information into practical applications by providing online personality assessments and personalized reports at affordable prices. Through our program, people gain insights into themselves and use that knowledge to develop rewarding relationships, choose satisfying careers, become more effective leaders and live healthier and happier lives.

We value synergy, service, and self-awareness. We believe this program can make a positive difference in the lives of our clients.

The creator of TypeFocus, David J. Wood, BA, MA, MPA, president of TypeFocus Internet Inc., has been a consultant and educator since 1970 (trained at the graduate level in psychometrics), and a qualified type practitioner since 1988.

He has been a psychology instructor at college, hospital administrator, and the principal of a training company devoted to personal and organizational effectiveness. Working as a consultant/counselor, he became increasingly convinced about the value of self-awareness in people's lives. He believes that the best model for understanding oneself is based on Carl Jung's theories of personality development.

With an established reputation for quality content, innovative technology and exceptional customer service, TypeFocus has created a loyal band of clients.

TypeFocus is committed to continually updating and improving our programs (we're on Version 5 now!) to better serve clients now and in the future. To this end, we invest heavily in research and development, we listen carefully to our clients' needs and expectations, and we seek out complementary partnerships and alliances to ensure TypeFocus remains at the forefront of personality type online programs.

The webinars, mentor to monitor assignments, assistance with debriefing, access to forum and final interview are only available to those participants who want to be certified as a TypeFocus Type Practitioner.

When a person becomes a Certified TypeFocus Practitioner, their contact information will be listed on our website to authenticate their standing. They will also be able to purchase any of our programs at a discount and offer their clients services through a website branded to their name.
