“Barbara provides great work with minimal or even poor direction. She’s great at conducting her own research to generate quality content. Barbara works quickly and always hits her deadlines. Her writing is clear, concise, and customer friendly. Barbara is also easy to work with and always has a good attitude. For the type of work I use her (corporate customer-oriented communications), I recommend her easily.”
—Sean Malroy, Marketing Project Manager, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)
When I was hired, AdvisorTeam (subsequently absorbed into Keirsey.com) had just begun to turn a profit from its online version of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, a personality profiling instrument similar to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. These personality tests are popular with job seekers, career counselors, and professionals, so the company decided to develop a career-focused report to capitalize further on David Keirsey’s intellectual property.
Working with a designer, I developed the modular structure and wrote the copy for the 16 versions of the Career Temperament Report, which has been sold online continuously for more than 15 years. Keirsey.com company has since produced several new reports using the template I devised.
