The Buzz Quiz is based on an approach to personality developed by Carl Jung and popularised by Myers-Briggs around sixty years ago, which recognises that people have preferred ways of behaving using their personality. Some people prefer to be quiet and others prefer to be chatty - both are equally good but different. Knowing your own style of behaving can help you make better decisions in life.

See our interview with Buzz Quiz creator David Hodgson to find out more about personality and careers.

The book The Buzz explains the ideas further and applies these to the lives and choices facing young people.
