How it works
Finding your cognitive type can be an incredibly difficult process, with much of the various videos and blog-posts on the internet doing little more than sew even more confusion into an already complicated topic.
The CPT Type Service prioritises self-discovery over simply being handed a type code – for this reason, a back-and-forth dialogue is essential for effective results. No one person is exactly the same type as another, and as such the emphasis is understanding your own individual cognition, rather than just one of sixteen variants.
The video calls offered are not only an important means of confirming type and selecting from the options previously elucidated, but also to answer any questions that may arise in understanding the results. For the Type Service Express, Rob will assess from the one hour session and go over the type code result at the end of the call. For Tier I & II, I take additional time after the call to formulate a conclusion and provide a written analysis. An additional 30 minute debrief call is also offered at the end – the prices for these services reflect the extra time investment outside of calls.
All services supply an additional 1-2 types in order of likelihood, should there be any doubt as to the primary results.

Coaching & Consultations
Often well suited to those who have already been through a CPT Type Service, a coaching service is all about applying type towards individuation and life enhancement. Every individual is unique and will have their own unique goals and priorities – the coaching service caters to this very individuality, employing a cognitive function model to illuminate areas of resistance as well as map out a plan through which such resistance may be overcome.
The focus of CPT Type Coaching is as much internal as it is external, and as such places an equal weight on both perspective and action. While this ratio will vary according to the needs of the individual, cognitive functions are presented as more than just perceptual aids, but as schemas upon which meaningful action can ensue.
Type coaching is offered in 2 and 3-hour packages; Tier I is divided into two weekly video calls, and Tier II into three weekly video calls. Individuals with a single area they wish to develop may be better suited to the first option, whereas those with either multiple such areas or an interest in holistic type development should consider Tier II. We can have open email exchanges during the process for further questions.
Either package may also be used for consultation purposes and is not strictly limited to the CPT Type Development program. On-going coaching and type development can be found on Patreon.
Consultations are hour-long video calls in which we freely discuss personality typing and cognition – I will be free to answer any questions, and if preferred the conversation can be moved to an entirely auditory or text-based medium.
Consultations cannot give you your cognitive type, but can be used to discuss matters around the subject as well as the theory as a whole. As such, individuals who already know their type will benefit from consultations the most.
Excellent Book! (5 Stars) This book was incredibly interesting, and I have read many on the subject of Jungian typology. The type descriptions were impeccable, and the explanation of the function stack made a lot of sense to me and provided what seems to be lacking in so many other typological theories. There was also an excellent discussion of the transcendental function which showed how it might exist in pragmatic form. I therefore highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to see how the cognitive functions are actually expressed in people.
It was very hard for me to understand my personality type because I could relate to several types. Sometimes I bring an unconscious functions into consciousness, and it confused me. Harry was able to help me understand my personality type, and I how I dip into other cognitive functions. I'm very happy with the results.
I started to watch CPT on YouTube and I was sold with the knowledge and technique Harry uses. Then, I bought the book and after reading it, quickly realize he knows his stuff. Especially how he focus on flexibility and not getting caught up in dogmas. I’ve been for years trying to figure out my type but I couldn’t, so I decided to get the type services and after few emails and a video conference, Harry was able to type me and even connected the second Type thought I was to the core one. If you want to really know your type Harry is the guy. Excellently done ✅! I’m very happy with the result and the accuracy. One more thing, Harry takes the types out of the behavior focus and it removes stigmas and even misrepresentation of types is out there. He leaves room for potential, flexibility, and growth! Very happy and comfortable ENTP with some INFJ qualities.
I am very satisfied with the typing service. Harry’s Typing does not refer to the stereotypical behaviors and statements of the different personalities, but on the underlying patterns. Even after the interview he is very accommodating when questions arise and answers them in detail so that they are really understood. I trust his competence and knowledge and I also have absolutely no need of having the result confirmed by another coach, because he could explain very well why I am this type and not that type.
First off, I don’t trust most people’s objectivity, especially when it comes to typing as many interpretations can arise from a single statement/source of information. This happens all the time when I bring up being a clairempath. Something which, contrary to belief, is not tied to cognitive stacks. Rather, it is something that occurs outside such things and stems from another source than human cognition patterns and their ability to perceive things (however, that is another subject matter entirely). The fact that he has the ability to recognize and acknowledge this was a big selling point in the final analysis. Most people become too enmeshed in their own perceptual biases, which is why I chose to go with Harry here. You can have absolute faith and trust that he will understand and objectively analyze your inner workings without pre-conceived notions of behavior that often lead to misunderstandings and mis-typings. We are all equally complex beings and he’s definitely on the right track.
If you have any doubts or don’t know who to go with, I can’t recommend him enough. Though I am moving on to my next path, if you find yourself here, stay for a bit and consider a consultation. You have nothing to lose, only to gain.
I went with the Tier II service because I wanted to go for the full experience, get a sense of the full scope of Harry's methodology and see what he & CPT are all about. Harry is super-organized and super-invested in working with you individually, getting to know and understand your personal context. There's nothing rushed or mass-manufactured about his process, and he takes the time to get to understand you and your story.
Here are some suggestions for people considering the service:
1 - Yes, there can be a lot of jargon. Do not be shy about asking Harry to rephrase things for you. He's very responsive and will break things down for you.
2 - If you're taking the Tier I or Tier II service, I suggest spacing out the email exchange, the Skype call, and the follow-up Skype call - instead of doing things all at once, it can make sense to do this over several days or even a couple weeks to capture yourself in different mental states.
When Harry says he'll get results to you in 7-10 days, he means it - that's exactly what happened for me. The results PDF was thorough & in depth, and it helps that he gives you a "most likely" type as well as an alternative possibility. Even if the most likely type is a certainty, it helps to have different possibilities to look at, to weigh and assess.
Finally, as a doctoral student, I'm used to living on a budget, and I feel like every penny was well-spent here. I'd gladly go through the process again.
I’m so glad I found CPT and Harry, respectively the first no nonsense modern theory based on Jung’s typology and the first professional typologist I encountered, and I stretch the word “professional”. I’ve been trying to find my type for many years without success and then Harry, after a careful analysis of the information I sent him and based on the information he gathered during our video call, came up with a type I haven’t even considered using the Myers-Briggs system. CPT’s result makes sense and actually explains lots of stuff about me. And the best part is that I have already started to use that knowledge for self development. Also, the whole process was lots of fun and I could tell that Harry is really passionate about helping people like me to understand themselves better. And it works. And the price of his service is very low compared to was you get in return. Worth every penny. So I’m a very grateful client. Thanks a lot Harry!
Talking with Harry is like talking with a really good friend…except the conversation is all about you! I am not usually very comfortable talking to a complete stranger about my inner workings, but Harry made the experience easy. Two hours sped by, and I eagerly awaited the results, which came--exactly as promised--ten days later. The analysis I received was thorough and enlightening, and started me on a process of self-examination…which is ongoing. Getting typed by Harry is well worth the cost! If you are wondering about your type, I highly recommend Harry's type service.
I booked Harry’s Type Service Tier II because I was questioning the type I had gotten from an online test. I had been researching MBTI and cognitive functions, but found a lot of the current theories out there to be quite rigid and lacking in nuance, e.g. when they say if you have one function you by definition can’t have another.
Discovering CPT was like a breath of fresh air. Finally, an explanation for cognitive functions that made sense and allowed for the possibility of people to use their type as a springboard for growth rather than a box they could never leave.
I’ve greatly benefited from watching the videos online and also from reading the e-book, which provides an excellent explanation of the theory.
Meeting with Harry in the online interviews was a very pleasant experience. He is professional, friendly and a great listener, making you feel comfortable from the start. I actually really enjoyed answering the questions he posed about my personality and how I experience life – this alone helped me learn new things about myself that I hadn’t considered before.
I was very satisfied with the final report: it was very detailed and showed a good deal of insight. The type Harry suggested for me feels much more correct.
All in all, this was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this service!
The tier 2 service was what I purchased. Harry was very kind and pleasant and answered any questions I had. He provides a thorough explanation of what type you could be. I found myself discovering more about myself throughout the sessions. He helps debunk a lot of misconceptions in the type community and provides a document that succinctly showcases the subtleties that you specifically can have for that type. I highly recommend this service.
Having this Tier 1 typing experience with Harry was great
1) he’s a very nice human being. Patient, kind, open, adaptative, apparently honest and pationate
2) I like how CPT theory seems aiming to self development and understanding the roots of your CFs instead of the entreprenarial effeciency that MBTI gravitates upon most of times.
It’s out of stereotype, breaks with misconceptions. Being, to me, more accurate, this method consequently fills less boxes with short, easy answers but offers more in depth reflexions. Greater value for me but comes with work. There’s a whole bunch of complementary explanations trough the youtube content.
3) Being typed in France (i’m French) cost around 300 euros (330$) and it only grants you 2h videocall with someone that can easily be less accurate and “in deep” oriented that Harry is for 90euros. He gave me some extra time and offered me the possibility of email exchange (that are coming ! Harry if you reading this… (; )
So, in the end, the experience was nice, serious, very interesting and not expensive.
Thank you Harry !
CPT methodology is employed for the effective understanding of type cognitive dynamics – the more you know yourself, the more effective CPT becomes.
The typing of other people within a short space of time blurs the line between cognitive and behavioural psychology and will seldom be 100% reliable, but narrowing the options down is relatively straightforward and in many cases a type-code will be given with certainty.
Transparency is also highly encouraged – if your thought patterns indicate one type, and your words another, CPT will place greater value on the underlying cognition. It is my obligation to indicate the type I believe you to be, and help you come to your own understanding of this.
