Career Planning: Personality and Careers


BulletThere are a variety of methods one can use to determine which major/career to pursue in college. This page utilizes information based on your personality type to offer a method for clarifying your decision on a major that will lead to a satisfying career. If you were in GST 110 Succeeding in College, you probably took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) and learned about your personality. If you remember your personality type from this test, you can begin your career exploration by choosing your type from below. If you have not done the MBTI before, visit this link to learn about personality types and to make a self-assessment of your type. It would be appropriate to make an appointment with your Academic Advisor to process what you have learned.


BulletAfter you have learned about your personality type, return here to research career options associated with your code. In the table below are codes for the sixteen possible combinations of personality types. All types can be found in most occupations listed in the following material and this is not meant to tell you what you should be doing. The information contained here represents the most common occupations and the personality types in those fields; it is only one piece of information to use in your decision-making process. Keep in mind that your personality type does not place you into a "mold" and these are only suggestions for you to consider. Click on your code to explore your type.
