Kolbe Indexes / Instinct Assessments

Kolbe Indexes are fun and easy to complete online in less than 20 minutes. They are different from other self assessments because they don't measure how smart you are (thinking) or what your personality is like (feeling). Rather, Kolbe Indexes measure how you naturally DO things.

Backed by more than 30 years of research and practical applications, they provide an amazingly accurate map of an individual's natural instincts, or modus operandi (M.O.). Index results are delivered dynamically online and are also available in a print version.

All reports currently require Adobe Flash Player.
