Career Self-Assessment Worksheet

Student Name:

Purpose: Use your Precision and Sequence to document and reflect on the results of your TypeFocus assessment to gain more insight into your personality, interests, values, and suggested careers for your personality type.

Prepare: Take a moment to carefully review your TypeFocus assessment results. Think about your personality type and what characteristics are associated with it. Do you find yourself displaying those characteristics often? The results also suggest careers that suit your personality type. Think about the careers listed and the information provided that describes each one. Consider which career you would like to explore further and think about how well your personality fits that career.

Note: You can revisit your results at any time by logging in to TypeFocus, clicking on Returning Users, Login! and entering just your email address and password.  If you want to change your name or password, login and then click into My Account.

My TypeFocus 4-Letter Personality Type is… Use one line for each letter. CharacteristicsList at least two characteristics of the personality type. Review the Personality Theory: What Your Four Letters Mean” section to help you learn more about each letter. Agree or Disagree? In a minimum of four sentences, explain in your own words whether you agree or disagree with each type and characteristics determined by the TypeFocus.
Example: 1. I = Introversion quiet, introspective I completely agree with the results of the TypeFocus about my personality. I don’t like to be around crowds. I prefer staying home and reading a book instead of going to a party. My family always tells me I am too quiet and need to speak up more.
1. E – Extroversion Varied Interests. External action I’m definitely an extrovert. I love being around people and in groups of friends. When I don’t have plans with friends and/or family on the weekends and I just stay in I get depressed. I also have so many interests I would be happy to do just about anything with my friends. I also think it’s why I have such a hard deciding what I want to do as a career.
2. S – Sensing Experience, Practical I agree with this result as well. I feel like I learn best from experiences I have had first hand which can be difficult too, learning the hard way. I make most decisions on what is practical. When my kids were younger I had a minivan, which I didn’t want because it’s a minivan but it was practical for our family.
3. F – Feeling Personal Values, empathetic I disagree with this result. At work I don’t base my decisions on feelings or on a personal basis. I make decisions based on what is best for the business and am fair to a fault. If one person isn’t allowed to do something then no one should be. I think this is the biggest reason my job results came back as they did.
4 J – Judging Organized, predictable I agree with this result. I’m extremely organized in my work and personal life. I guess I’m predictable as well but I like to do things different from time to time. The description said that I also like to make quick decisions, which is true but over time in a big corporation have learned that it is not good business to make knee jerk decisions.
