We believe in the power of potential: illuminate yours.

About Human eSources

Human eSources has been developing assessment tools that help people find their passion, purpose and potential in life for the past 25 years. We’ve helped millions of students and adults discover their unique strengths, skills and talents then use this insight to help chart meaningful and satisfying educational and career paths. Our philosophy is simple: we believe that everyone has the right to a satisfying and fulfilling life and that the starting point for the journey begins with personal insight.

“Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and then do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

– Howard Thurman Human

Human eSources’ personal assessment tools are based on the internationally recognized work of Carl Jung, Dunn, Dunn and Price, and Howard Gardner. Our methodology has been proven for accuracy and correlation through clinical research and in the classroom. You’ll find our tools in thousands of schools in North America, supporting thousands of professionals in guiding students toward educational and career goals. Our tools are also at work in a growing number of countries around the world, developing human potential to meet the needs of the global economy.
