Career Personality Test

Students are often confused about the choice of career, and which one suits them best. The more the options, the more confusion it creates. If you find yourself in a similar situation, fret not, because this CareerStint post is intended to help you narrow down your career choices by giving a simple test that would gauge your temperament.

Desire! That’s the one secret of every man’s career. Not education. Not being born with hidden talents. Desire.
― Johnny Carson

No wonder, we start our job search considering our interests and likes, core competencies and knowledge. There is a difference between the field of academics you like, and the one in which you would excel. The same is also true in case of careers. And then we have this huge number of career options and suggestions, baffling us all the more. A career personality test is a small aptitude test that helps people to determine the career for which their personality is most suited.

Psychologists usually advocate that teenagers should take such tests. These tests can prove to be an effective guide to students about their higher education. These are also useful to students who have just completed their university level education, in order to help them decide the field in which to make a career. In some rare cases, kids also take such tests to identify natural talent, helping schools and parents to nurture them with very satisfying results.

Every person has a different temperament and aptitude, and is highly skilled in some or the other task. A particular job or a career is well-suited for a person of a specific temperament.
