About CPP

Everything we do is to help people be better through deeper understanding of themselves and others to lead more productive and fulfilling lives.


Our story began more than 50 years ago with the pairing of two psychology professors—one from Stanford and one from U.C. Berkeley—with a common goal: to use research-based psychological assessments to give people the insight and guidance they need to develop in both their personal and professional lives. Their partnership resulted in the creation of CPP, Inc., the company formerly known as Consulting Psychologists Press.

Honoring Dr. Harrison Gough (1921-2014)

On May 4th, 2014, we lost one of our founding fathers, Harrison G. Gough, PhD.

Dr. Gough leaves behind a remarkable legacy of dedication, kindness, caring, creativity, and, of course, his many extraordinary contributions to the field of psychology—including the California Psychological Inventory™ (CPI™) assessment. All of us at CPP are honoured to carry on his work and his vision to “help millions of people, including our employees, develop themselves.”

Myers-Briggs® Assessment

But our roots reach even deeper than that. The Myers-Briggs® assessment was first developed in 1943 by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers. This mother-and-daughter team were among the most prominent pioneers of personality assessment. In 1975, CPP became the exclusive publisher of the Myers-Briggs instrument.

Today, CPP is a world leader in personality, career, and organizational development assessments. We are grateful to our loyal clients for making this possible.

Through our certification trainingpsychometric assessments, and consultancy services, we enable our clients to deliver assessments, development and retention solutions which enable individuals, leaders, teams and organizations to better understand and enhance their skills and capabilities.
