Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The MBTI personality assessment identifies an individual’s type (made up of four basic preferences), and provides a common language around how people interact with others and the world around them. This information helps people improve both their working and personal relationships in a productive and constructive way. The MBTI tool is a great resource for improving important decision making and guiding career exploration.

Strong Interest Inventory

The Strong Interest Inventory evaluates interests in a variety of positions: work, leisure, and field of studies. The questionnaire compares how your interests are similar to the interests of people who occupy certain professions. It is used to help people understand the occupations that interest them and to illustrate the types of employment within which they would be happier.
