Like you’ll find it difficult to get along with people whose personalities clash with your own, you’ll find it hard to find happiness in a job that doesn’t match your personality type.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)—which covers 16 personality types—is the most popular personality trait assessment tool in use today.
While this personality assessment on its own is not a reliable predictor of your dream job, it can give you valuable clues for screening out jobs that would not be a good fit for you.
As explained in the book Dream Job Discovery, these clues relate to whether you are naturally more inclined to be introverted or extroverted, sensing or intuitive, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving.
Having tested several versions of the personality tests based on the original work of Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs, we recommend that you take either of the following options for the best results:
