Take the Personality Plus personality quiz online here.

The MOPS International website references Kathi Lipp who also has a book entitled 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids. Kathi Lipp has a website and online quiz to help you determine a little more about your child(ren)’s personalities.  She does not call the four personality types by the same names as  Florence Littauer, however there is some helpful information provided.  Her quiz is a little better for school age children, however another great resource.  Find her information here.
