Hi, does anyone happen to have a link to a really good career personality quiz that can help direct you to an area of study you might be suited to?
Thanks

Check your local library, ours (Melbourne area) had access to a great one for free.

Our team did this one. It is more of a personality test, but the report includes a section on Career Paths. I found it predicted some very accurate tendencies that I only saw in time with my colleagues.

I just did it and it came out sadly wrong:  a popular cheerleader-type is pretty much the opposite of who I am

Mine was pretty much spot on.

Me too! We’re quite a rare breed apparently (around only 0.2% of females)

INFJ-T here. "The advocate".

I’m pretty sure MBTI is being canned these days as being largely baseless.

Aw, poo! I can remember doing it at a leadership academy thing in year 11 and reading about the personality traits associated with my 'type' (ISFJ) was like being understood properly for the first time in my life :laugh:

I think I actually still have the snippet from the paperwork taped to my desk in my parents' house - it felt so profound!

Probably shouldn't get too excited, I think it's one of the most common types.

a couple of quick reads for you

I am INFJ-T. But I was borderline thinking and feeling because it was 51% to 49%.

Though it say that INFJ are quiet... I'm not lol I'm loud, but insecure haha

The more I read, I dunno that it's right for me.

I'm borderline between INFJ, ISFJ and ENFP depending on the day.

I got isfp
It kinda describes me but some of the career options don't really appeal to me.

My partner has just read a book about the history of this test and coming out regularly with snippets.

These things are pseudo-psychological woo. I wouldn't bother.

Oh, I love the MBTI, but it's a conversation starter I use with students for a bit of fun, not something that is 100% perfect.
I use www.similarminds.com with my students at school (in our year 10 careers subject) as I need somewhere to start, and the tests are free. Lots of different tests there, but the MBTI is the Jung test.

If you are using MB, then I strongly encourage you to look at the link to the book I have upthread.

thanks for the 16 personalities quiz but is there any other ones which might be just as good?

Have you done the joboutlook government one? It came up with really good career matches for me! I think it’s joboutlook.gov.au

So that was quite interesting, but I think they have quite a narrow definition of 'analytical'. I think they've based it on the scientific research options. It rated me low (6%) but I'm very analytical in my IT job, love it and am good at it.
