These are compilation quizzes that I developed, with multiple pages.  You can download it as an excel spreadsheet, open office spreadsheet, or print as a .pdf and complete by hand.

Northrup/McJimsey Essence Quiz
  • Belle Northrup created these Essence (or style) categories.  They are also very similar to criteria used by Harriet McJimsey.  These are from McJimsey's 1973 book and also used by Personal Style Counselors and were mentioned in the 2013 "Shopping for the Real You," and 1981 "Your New Image."  This quiz has 20 questions.
  • Dramatic Natural Lively Classic Romantic /Youthful

  • Style Guides
  • The Style Guides use the Northrup/McJimsey categories, but information from Kibbe, thus shrinking his categories.   David Kibbe's Metamorphosis.  Kibbe Quiz
