Understanding your personality type can give you insights that you can apply to your job choices and career management.

One of the most reputable personality assessment instruments is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI assessment can be administered either online or with paper and pencil, usually through a qualified individual, such as a career counselor, who has met specific professional requirements for interpreting the results of the assessment. The MBTI is frequently one of the assessments used in career classes and workshops.

You can also find information on personality type and how it relates to career development through many books. See the Resources page in this section for some examples.
