Finding the Right Career for Your Personality

Have you ever wondered why you are attracted to certain jobs? Ever thought about how happy you would be as an architect? Or how bored you would be as a software engineer? Your personality type could have everything to do with your preferences.

Understanding your personality type could be a key factor in finding the career that makes you happy. This infographic, compiled by Truity Psychometrics, a provider of online personality and career assessments, as well as the developer of the TypeFinder® personality type assessment, details the four dimensions of personality type and suggests ideal jobs for each type.

High Spirits or Holiday Stress?

During the holidays most of us stress about similar things – the American Psychological Association cited lack of time (67%) and money (62%) as biggest common stressors. Yet, how we individually respond to holiday stress can be so different that you may miss signs of stress in co-workers, loved ones…even yourself! However, understanding personality type can help us predict and manage our own and others’ stress. CPP – the Myers-Briggs company – suggests ways to use personality type to banish holiday stress & boost cheer.

This infographic details common signs of stress for each of the 16 personality types, and helpful tips on ways to calm down and enjoy the season. It also suggests how understanding personality type can help you make the most of visits to family and friends, offering tips to interact more intimately, and even provides gifting tips based on MBTI® type preferences.
