The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS-II) is a self-administered personality test which is used by such companies as Coca-Cola, AT & T, and the United States Air Force. While related in theory to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment, there are differences, especially in the final descriptions of each subset of each assessment. This assessment was created by Dr. David Keirsey.
The KTS-II is offered on site in English, French, German, Spanish (Internationally), and Latin American Spanish. There are 70 questions, with 2 answers on each question. A person can enter a password to return and keep their results secure and see them in the future if needed, which may be beneficial if they are interested in a personality assessment.
You can become a KTS-II administrator, or become certified as well. Or just for yourself, take the assessment, and see how you score. It is well worth the time!

2011 marks the 75th anniversary that many would prefer to forget: of the first lobotomy in the US. It was performed by an ambitious young American neurologist called Walter Freeman. Over his career, Freeman went on to perform perhaps 3,000 lobotomies, on both adults and later on children. He often performed 10 procedures or more a day. Perhaps 40,000 patients in the US were lobotomized during the heyday of the operation – and an estimated 17,000 more in the UK.
This program tells the story of three key figures in the strange history of lobotomy – and for the first time explores the popularity of lobotomy in the UK in detail.
