“The reality of life is that your perceptions – right or wrong – influence everything else you do.

When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place”

-Roger W. Birkman, Ph.D.

Dr. Roger Birkman

Dr. Birkman was an influential psychologist whose vision continues to inspire us all at Birkman. His research has helped millions of people have greater self-awareness and enjoy better relationships.

His childhood experiences as well as his time fighting in World War II fueled an interest in how personalities differ between people and how these differences affect every aspect of our lives.

The Birkman Method®, our industry leading personality assessment, was an organic development out of his life events, academic studies in psychology, observations about business and the military, and goals to make the world a better place.
