It’s becoming more and more popular for companies to issue personality tests for their staff and for potential candidates.
What is the point to this new phenomenon? Can a test on your personality really determine which role you’re best suited to?
There is science behind this theory and not simply a multiple choice survey. Your personality is determined by which areas of the brain are the dominant ones.
A very popular and scientifically proven personality test is the Briggs Meyer one.
The test uses a letter system and determines between different personality traits eg. an analytical thinker or an emotional thinker. The results then give you a range of career options that are suited to your personality type, as long as you answer honestly!
|Extraverted (E)||Introverted (I)|
|Intuitive (N)||Sensing (S)|
|Thinking (T)||Feeling (F)|
|Judging (J)||Perceiving (P)|
This is also a great tool for employers to use when recruiting or considering staff for promotion or alternative roles. Also for any students out there struggling to choose a career path, this may offer a bit of guidance.
