Discover your Personality Type and Psychological Dynamics
The Watchword Technique
The Watchword Technique is a word-association personality test, inspired by the theories of the great psychologist C.G. Jung (1875-1961).
First published in 1992, the test allows you to identify your psychological type and to examine important psychological forces and tendencies influencing your life and current situation.
Since 1992, the test has been taken by many thousands of people seeking to understand more about themselves and their relationships. It has also been widely used by professionals working in career guidance, management training, counseling, and psychotherapy.
Watchword is not a system of fortune telling and it does not directly offer advice about problems. In providing a description and interpretation of your psychological situation it may, however, assist your choices and decisions.
At one level, Watchword may be considered simply as an amusing party game or form of psychological solitaire. At its most profound, it is a system that may be used to guide you along the path towards self-fulfillment.
