CPP Research Support
CPP, Inc., understands that many organizations and academics
do original research using CPP assessments. This page is
intended to provide a guide to the kinds of support that
CPP offers researchers who are furthering basic understanding
and finding innovative uses of CPP assessments.
The most common and general types of support are listed
below, but CPP understands that people do all kinds of
interesting things with CPP assessments. If these options do not
meet your needs, feel free to contact the Research Division (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Support for Original Research. Academicians in
particular often want to simply administer CPP assessments as
part of an original study. To make these kinds of studies as easy and cost
efficient as possible, CPP Research can offer qualified
researchers free or discounted SkillsOne® accounts, administrations
of assessments, scoring and data extractions. Other
kinds of support (e.g., discounted printed materials) are
considered as well. Those interested in free or discounted
online accounts and materials should complete a
Request for Support.
Data extractions. For customers who are adept at handling
data, CPP can provide assessment data from a customer's SkillsOne®
account, including all demographics, items, and scores, along
with a data guide. This option tends to be quick (less than one
week) and relatively inexpensive ($250
per query). Simply

Discovery. The website Discovery is the online home of CPP's
Research Division. Several experimental forms of CPP's
assessments are posted
here for the general public to take
for free, some of them in multiple languages. These experimental
forms are generally longer than the commercially available forms
and may contain experimental items. Researchers willing to use
these forms may be able to collect their CPP assessment data
using Discovery, and depending on the project, CPP may assist
researchers by setting up customized questionnaires and content
on Discovery. Researchers interested in using Discovery should
complete a Request for Support.
Research Services. CPP can help academic or business
customers design and carry out original research studies under a
Research Services contract.
The range of services can be quite broad, and customers
interested in Research Services are encouraged to contact the
Special notes regarding research with the MBTI assessment.
Researchers interested in the
MBTI assessment are encouraged to utilize the services of the
not-for-profit Center for Applications of Psychological Type
(CAPT), founded by Isabel Briggs Myers and Mary McCaulley in
1975. CAPT’s mission is to: “…extend and teach the accurate
understanding of the ethical and practical applications of C.G.
Jung's theory of psychological types, which shows how our
differences in experiencing events and making decisions can be
valuable rather than divisive, and can be used constructively.”
to hosting a searchable,
online bibliography of articles and books relevant to
psychological type, CAPT offers support to interested
researchers regarding study design, methodology, and appropriate
topics. For more information, contact Dr. Robert McPeek (email@example.com).

resources for MBTI related studies.
Researchers may also want to consider the
Isabel Briggs Myers Memorial Research Awards, a separate
program sponsored by the Myers & Briggs Foundation.
