Your child will need to be a bit older, maybe in their teens, for this to be an effective tool. But once you each take it, review the results. Discuss if each of you expected the outcome or were surprised by it. Ask your child questions about their results and if they believe the personality type was accurate and why. Do they feel comfortable with the outcome? Is that who they want to be?
Share the same insights from your own test. Was it a surprise to you? What are the reasons behind some of your answer choices that led to that outcome? Be open. The more you are willing to share and be transparent, the better chance you will have of your child doing the same. They will only go as far as you do.

It is a fun way to gain a picture of your child in as many ways as you want. Ask questions of their favorite movie, book, song, color, animal, clothes, games etcetera. It is interesting to compare answers over time-age as they grow and experience more of life. There are specific templates to log these answers if you want to come back to their answers over time.
