It takes all stripes

The People Stripes® experience is designed to help explain why people so often see, understand, and act quite differently from one another. You have your "stripes," your spouse or significant other has theirs, and the kids each have their own. LEARN MORE >>


People Stripes is for...

What you and your family will learn through the People Stripes® website relates to naturally occurring and healthy mental habits that differ between people of all ages, and all cultures. You'll find articles that illustrate these healthy differences between parents, children, and teachers, and you'll have an opportunity to discover the personality types of all the members of your family.
MMTIC® results give educators, consultants, counselors, parents, and young people valuable insights into differences in how they learn and engage in healthy social interactions. Type has profound implications for discovering unique learning styles, empowering early learning success, and encouraging lifelong personal growth and development.

What is the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children®?

Like the well-known Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument, the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® (MMTIC®) is a self-report assessment developed to measure children's psychological type preferences. The two instruments share the same theoretical approach to understanding personality types, but the MBTI assessment is intended for a mature audience, while the shorter, easier-to-read MMTIC instrument is designed to assess personality type in children and teenagers.
