How useful are assessments for facilitating your personal growth?

Here’s a list of some of the common ones:

•Gallup Strengths-Finders
•DISC Profile
•Subject Object Interview (SOI)
•Porter Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0
•EQ-i 2.0 (Emotional Intelligence)

Some assessments are more about personality, while others dive deeper into cognitive capacity.

They help make your underlying traits, strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, etc…, objective so that you are aware of them.

According to this article on LinkedIn, “Understanding  personality type can help you to understand your preferences and the preferences of other people and how or why these might be different. Personality types are useful for recognizing how we lead, influence, communicate, collaborate, negotiate business and manage stress.”

Are assessments like these worth taking? Can the results relate to or guide your investing strategies?
