“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing.” —Pele
What is a personality and career assessment? Why is it important, and what does it do for you in
career & college planning?
What you’ll learn:
What a personality and career assessment is. What it doesn’t do.
What it does do.
Understanding yourself (self-discovery), your strengths, interests, values, and motivations through personality and career assessments is beneficial.
It will help you better align your personality (focusing on your strengths) to choose a major and a college that are your best fit for college admissions.
It’s highly recommended to complete a Personality and Career Assessment (self-discovery) early in high school (9th grade year) as it helps a student understand their personality type, and how well they relate to others (such as classmates and teachers). Students might be required to take a personality career assessment during their 10th grade year, but taking a personality career assessment by a certified career counselor in the 9th grade will better prepare them for the following challenges:
Learn more about student’s strengths, values, interests, and motivations.
Learn about student’s personality, how their personality and compatibility to other personality types.
Increase social skills, understanding themselves.
Personality assessment is just one aspect of self- assessment. For complete self-assessment, also consider your interests, skills, and values.
What it doesn’t do: Personality assessment doesn’t tell you “what to be” and should NOT be viewed as a strict instruction that you must choose x or y occupation.
What it does do: Helps you better understand yourself, your personality, and how you relate to people, process information, make decisions, and function. This helps you think about how potential occupations will or won’t fit with your personality. Keep your personality type in mind as you research careers.
Helps you better understand yourself and how you relate to high school classmates and teachers. Helps determine compatible personalities, which helps in choosing best-fit classmates for group study and which classmates will be a challenge.
