When I think about where my career has taken me since I first declared my major in my sophomore year of college, I’m amazed that it’s gone in such a different direction that I originally intended. I’ve grown and learned so much about myself since I was 18, it seems like choosing a career path in college was about as accurate as trying to magically predicting the future!
The reason that my career continued to change since then is because of the amount of effort I put into finding my true self—and subsequently figuring out what job would make me happiest—during my twenties. Does this sound like you? If it does, then you’ve probably already discovered the many personality tests and quizzes that promise to help you instantly reach an answer!
One of the most widely trusted and credible tests, and the one that I found most helpful, is the Myers-Briggs test. In fact, this test is used by many companies (including the majority of the Fortune 100) as part of the application process for new employees to see if they will be a good fit for the job.
