The Function Skill Development Assessment™ (FSDA™) is a 40-item on-line survey that helps people assess their current mental skill level for how they take in information and make decisions (function skill development). After taking the FSDA™, people will finally see how well they currently use each of the eight psychological functions that constitute the foundation of psychological type theory as described by C.G. Jung and Isabel Myers.
The FSDA™ includes a personalized report that includes valuable information on Type Development theory. Type Development has been loosely defined as a process of becoming conscious of our mental processes. The FSDA™ report refines that definition so it is now a “measurable” process, and the report reviews both the underlying theory and the unique assessment methodology developed by Margaret and Gary Hartzler. The FSDA™ report provides a one page review for each function, and includes snapshots of the eight Jungian functions/processes in terms of five associated mental skills, each of which can be developed. This groundbreaking new approach provides a methodology for understanding our own mental skills (function skill development). A page is provided for the perceiving processes and another for the decision-making processes. A self-assessment is provided on each page to give clients a chance to reconfirm the FSDA™ results during the feedback process. Some further developmental choices are also provided.
We can provide this assessment completely online. The online version includes a live interactive session between the student and the instructor, Randy Marcoz, a certified Master Practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and a certified administrator of other personality instruments such as the FSDA.
