Career happinessHave 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.

  • 73% of people are sensors who like working with concrete things like people, data and machines.
  • 54% of people are judgers who focus on organization and crave a structured, orderly workplace.
  • 60% of people are feelers who want work that reflects their values and  gives them an opportunity to help others.

  • Thank you for sharing this helpful info-graphic. Sometimes it’s hard to be selective if there aren’t many jobs available to choose from. However, I think it’s important to know where your interests lie and to get some better idea of where your career path should be. Some people are lucky enough to find their dream job.
