meaningology® tests

The Global Meaning Institute is leading the Meaning Revolution with three #1 best-selling Meaning Tests:

  • MEANINGology® Life Meaning Test

  • MEANINGology® Work Meaning Test

  • MEANINGology® Team & Organization Meaning Test


The MEANINGology® Meaning Tests were developed by Dr. Alex Pattakos and Elaine Dundon based on their pioneering work in the field of Meaning. Their typology is built upon a new paradigm and formula for discovering meaning in life and work, as well as on the discovery that each person approaches and finds meaning via a specific MEANINGology® Style.


These tests have been designed to provide an overview of your current level of thinking/feeling regarding the state of meaning in your life or work, as well as to help you identify areas where you can deepen meaning in your life or work. For leaders, the Meaning Tests also identify how to make meaning a group-wide or organization-wide initiative that drives engagement & resilience, health & well-being, and performance & innovation.


Each test includes comparative scores in the different elements of Meaning and an individualized MEANINGology Style®. The Global Meaning Institute has collected normative data to be used as statistical benchmarks or points of comparison in the different elements of Meaning for personal growth, leadership development, and organizational transformation. These tests are integrated into the MEANING University Level 200 programs as well as into customized programs for specific clients.
