About This Site

 

Choosing a career path will be one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your life. Most people's future educational paths and careers are decided by looking outward towards external influences, such as family and peer pressures, economic conditions, and societal beliefs. However,research has shown that there is a direct correlation between job satisfaction and one's personality and preferences. Understanding your type preferences can be a valuable tool in enhancing personal growth and clarifying career direction.

The information contained in this site is based on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI does not capture all elements of an individual's personality but provides a framework to better understand personality and how it relates to career choices. Research has shown that many of the different personality types tend to have distinct preferences in their choice of careers. This site will provide you with work related strengths and weaknesses, as well as,job titles that may be of interest to you based on your personality type. You will find that not all strengths and weaknesses listed will be true of you. Likewise, some careers will be suitable for you, while others won't be based on characteristics other than your personality, such as your values, interests and abilities, and the level of education you are willing to undertake to prepare for a career.

The site has been created for use by Cal Poly Pomona students who have completed the MBTI. This material is provided for your reference, and is intended to be a supplement to your MBTI results and provide additional ideas for career exploration. It does not comprise a complete analysis of ideal careers for you, and does not guarantee success or failure at any occupation. For a complete and personal evaluation of career possibilities, a Career Counselor should be consulted.
