    Default The Best Career Test - and Maybe Personality System - On the Market

    I just took a test here: www.careerexplorer.com recently. I think this is the best personality system on the market. The test is comprehensive, measuring a range of traits, it is based on the RIASEC model, which I find incredibly accurate, and the list of careers I got was comprehensive and incredibly on the mark. There was also a personality test, and it was accurate as well. It is so good that it has made me question the validity of socionics: the RIASEC model is nothing like Model A, and the test goes beyond just personality, asking questions related to interests and aptitudes unrelated to personality. It therefore makes me wonder if Model A is anywhere near as accurate.

    If anyone is interested here are my results:

    https://www.careerexplorer.com/asses...8pjD7wvDA6jIfc.

    The personality test is different from what I have seen before, and spot on:

    Your strongest trait is Artistic, and your second strongest is Investigative, which makes you a Philosopher.

    Philosophers love being creative with their ideas. They have active imaginations and love exploring anomalies and sometimes scientific curiosities in the physical world. Philosophers like unstructured situations that provide them with room to get creative in their work. They like to interpret the world around them and thrive when they are able to express their findings.

    Hover over traits for more information.
    Your Archetype is powered by the traits that make up your broad interests.

    Skills You Can Focus On
    Philosophers are a relatively common archetype, representing about 8 to 9% of the broader population. They have a working combination of introspection and intuition, which enables them to be both strong rational and divergent thinkers that are able to take a holistic look at life and problems. Philosophers typically take time to think through things before they communicate them. They are naturally strong at working through real world problems, but their thinking can sometimes be overly idealistic and divorced from the intricacies and realities of how people and the world function. Their appreciation for ideas and sometimes the arts combined with their investigative function often makes Philosophers natural critics who appreciate dissecting and discussing forms of expression.

    Tendencies To Be Careful Of
    Philosophers tend to have a preference for introspective work where they can be independent and expressive, which can sometimes mean that in this autonomous state, they overlook the need to collaborate with others. They tend to be quite confident in their intellectual and creative ability, often overlooking existing solutions in blind preference for their own perspective. This can mean that they don’t function well within teams. While their way of thinking is often structured, they sometimes struggle in structured environments.

    Your Working Style
    You like analyzing information and using logic to address issues and problems. You likely prefer using creativity and alternative thinking to develop new ideas. You are inspired by tough problems, design, and the exploration of data or ideas. You are eager to take on new challenges or initiatives. You like setting goals, and then working persistently to achieve those goals. Your desire for excellence and persistence to see things through will serve you well in your professional life, but can be imposing on others in your personal and family life. It is helpful to sometimes step back and realize others may not naturally be driven by the same factors as you.

    Your Working Style is powered by the traits that make up your Broad Personality.

    Openness
    Do you find yourself searching for new ideas? Do you enjoy talking about big, abstract ideas? If so, you may have a high openness to experience score. Some common traits of a high openness score include a desire for variety, high curiosity, and an active imagination.

    Strengths
    You have an enhanced sensitivity to experiences, which means your appreciation of art, music or film may be deeper and more visceral than others'. You likely have a general proclivity for self reflection, which makes you particularly receptive to your environment and your place in it..
    You don't typically need other people to keep you motivated. Most likely, you have no problem working from home, giving you greater flexibility for structuring your time.
    Watch Out For
    The constant desire to set future goals can get in the way of appreciating past and present successes. You should take the time to enjoy your achievements.
    Your easy going approach to work and life can be perceived as thoughtless, inconsiderate, or lazy by some.
    Be wary of making little slip ups like ”spelling mistakes in your work or missed appointments in your personal life that might unfairly impact people's perception of you.
    Your ability to over emphasize the negative consequences of things can be distressing. This can lead you to be less content with your job or relationships. You should particularly be mindful to appreciate the positive aspects of your life and celebrate success, as this wont come as naturally to you as it does to others.
    Team Interaction
    Extrinsic performance goals will tend to undermine your intrinsic motivation for self improvement and mastery. It is important you work with supportive supervisors who can nurture, as opposed to abuse, your natural motivation.
    You prefer not to conform to existing processes, particularly when you feel they don't make sense, which can make teamwork frustrating at times.
    You tend to prefer supporting your coworkers over leading them. You are constantly on the lookout for errors or negative consequences, which can be an invaluable asset when working with others to improve a product or service. You thrive when your ability to think critically is valued, but beware of shutting down ideas that might actually be successful. Pinpoint the risks or flaws in a plan, but encourage your team to find solutions, rather than dismissing ideas entirely.
    You may feel strained after spending too much time working within a group. You probably do not like having to contribute as much as you like to listen, which means your voice can sometimes go unheard. You are certainly capable of expressing yourself to others, but you may find the experience mentally draining.
    Personal Style
    You prefer to avoid too much planning in your life, preferring to go with the flow, seizing ideas and opportunities as they come to you.
    Your ability to reflect on relationships can aid strengthening them overtime, which makes you likely better suited for long-term relationships than casual dating.
    You are likely somewhat unpredictable, and may be perceived as moody, pessimistic or irritable by those around you. The nature of your emotions could be channelled creatively as did the greats like Freud, Dostoyevsky and Shakespeare, to name a few. Your friends appreciate your creativity and emotional depth, though they might not always understand your feelings.
    You tend to go about life one thing at a time, preferring to keep things simple whenever possible. Having to switch back and forth between tasks while you work, or between people during conversation, may be challenging for you. You may prefer listening than talking, staying in to going out, or doing something you know you love to trying something new.
    Ideal Work Environment
    You thrive in environments with flexible guidelines that encourage you to work on projects with less constrained outcomes or requirements.
    Because of your emotional sensitivity, your environment tends to have a profound influence on your work performance. Hectic, stressful work spaces make it hard for you to focus, while more supportive, positive environments can boost your productivity. A job in an art or writing might be an ideal match for you, as these professions often place high value on your ability to perceive, experience and understand complex emotions that others can't.
    It is important to at least have the option to work in a quiet, isolated environment for you to stay productive when you need it.
    Values
    You value spontaneity and novelty over routine. Whether you're meeting new people, tasting exotic foods, or learning a new skill, you enjoy variety and strive to keep life interesting day-to-day. This willingness to challenge the status quo is something you value in your friends as well as yourself.
    You value personal rituals. Maybe you take an extra half hour every morning to enjoy a quiet coffee before starting your day, or perhaps you have a favourite TV show you watch each evening after work. Whatever form they might take, these routines save you energy and restore you, especially when you feel burned out or anxious.
    You likely don't have particularly engrained political or philosophical leanings and can appreciate both conservative and liberal arguments.

    You're right - to get the personality test it's expensive. But even for free, you get some information and a huge list of careers. If all you want is to find out what career you go into, you can get by without paying anything... (Unless the list of careers is bad. But that's a different story...)

    5/5 - Ethical Hacker, Cryptographer, Nuclear Engineer, Data Analyst, Security Software Developer, Business Analyst, Security Architect, Security Engineer, Systems Architect, Front-End Developer, Technical Product Manager, Financial Quantitative analyst, pathology, neurologist, database administrator, particle physicist, computer systems administrator, computer network architect, computer and information research scientist, medical and clinical laboratory technologist, medical and clinical laboratory technician, cytogenetic technologist, cytotechnologist, neurodiagnostic technologist, intelligence analyst, robotics engineer, mechatronics engineer, nanotechnology engineer, physicist, doctor. I'd add mathematician since I saw it up there before but it's not in the final results.

    literally no 4.5 or 4s.

    This really narrows it down... but I guess it does show that I have no experience in jobs and careers lol.


    EDIT: took the personality test. Here are the results. Overall, I think they make sense. Don't know how accurate the numbers themselves are, though I did answer the questionnaire honestly. I remember answering most of the discipline related questions as neutral since it tends to fluctuate (this seems paradoxical). But the test says I am regardless. It's a shame that the artistic side isn't well reflected. I see myself as a very "right-brained" person despite my logical demeanour. My thoughts are rarely structured, but to have others understand me, I need to make them structured. This is part of the reason why I'm skeptical I'm necessarily Ti valuing. I'll add that I don't like the usage of nice labels to keep you hooked with the theory. I don't like this about socionics either, but at least the labels are somewhat accurate and aren't such massive ego inflators. Like "the scholar" isn't a measurement of personality. I'm sure many people who obtain these results aren't scholars at all since they don't take initiative. I know I don't as much as I could. While I do enjoy thinking about ideas, solving problems, working through the details and the big picture, the word "intellectual" or "scholar" are too loosely defined for me to take them seriously as a measurement of personality. I wouldn't consider myself either of those at the moment.

    You are a Scholar

    Your strongest trait is Investigative, and your second strongest is Conventional, which makes you a Scholar.
    Scholars are intellectuals that pay attention to fine details. They spend a lot of time in their mind investigating and exploring new ideas. They usually like to pair their findings with data that can back it up. Scholars are very orderly in their thought processes. They usually prefer structure in their ideas and thoughts over ambiguity.


    Skills You Can Focus On

    Scholars tend to be precise and detail-oriented which makes them very good at completing tasks independently, rarely relying on guidance from others to see it through to completion. Scholars are ideal for roles like a technician, as they have tendencies to be analytical, curious, scientific, and at the same time, being disciplined in their work as they prefer environments that are well-ordered and encourage accuracy. Scholars usually like getting wrapped up in their work and they enjoy challenging their minds. They also tend to be persistent which means they are extremely likely to see difficult tasks through to completion.
    Tendencies To Be Careful Of

    Because the Scholar typically prefers independent work where they can think abstractly or perform complex calculations, this can hurt them when it comes to working within a team. They tend to be quite confident in their abilities and will sometimes move forward with their own ideas rather than suggestions of others. They identify with power and like having a structured plan that they can follow at their own pace, though they tend to shy away from a leadership role themselves.

    it's giving me some interface of science and medical fields, which eh I knew already, but imo it doesn't really go deep enough

    loved how it would randomly posit these creative career ideas within the process - might think of them one day!

    You are an Architect
    Your strongest trait is Investigative, and your second strongest is Realistic, which makes you an Architect.


    Architects are analytical thinkers who like to work in the physical world. Their diverse nature translates in their ability to think intellectually and apply what they know with physical work, like working with their hands. They are curious about the physical world and how it works. They enjoy intellectual challenges that are unconventional, and love solving complex problems.


    Investigative
    An investigative person is someone who lives in the mind. To solve problems, they prefer reading and studying, books and text, rather than their using their hands. They tend to analyze situations before making decisions. Investigative people are independent thinkers that are both curious and insightful.


    Skills You Can Focus On
    The Architect tends to be curious, intellectual, and they are natural problem solvers. They also have a tendency to be practical, hands-on, and typically like working outdoors. They are inherently good at thinking through problems and finding practical solutions, so they tend to thrive when they are given tasks that allow them to function independently and think through problems at their own pace. They get particularly excited when their thoughtful, inquisitive work can be translated into the physical, tangible world.


    Tendencies To Be Careful Of
    Because Architects have a propensity for independently-oriented tasks and an inherent love for figuring out complex problems, they do not feel as well equipped to deal with leading a group of people. They would rather get on the ground floor and work than set up a high-level plan for others. Their investigative side tends to make them introspective, inquisitive, and avid readers, which are intrinsically solitary activities. This tends to mean that Architects have a harder time working in more social situations that call for regular tactfulness, relationship building, and interpersonal interaction.

    I got a bunch of cool scientisty jobs (that I'll never actually be able to have) like nanotechnology engineer and particle physicist. I used to be addicted to this site.

    Your strongest trait is Investigative, and your second strongest is Artistic, which makes you an Enthusiast.

    Enthusiasts are inquisitive and curious about things and like to solve problems in a methodical and rational way. They have the ability to express their ideas and concepts to others in an easy to understand and logical manner. They are also refreshingly open-minded and love to be inspired and motivated by different ideas and theories.

    This test was very interesting. I'm not familiar with the models it uses to determine a person's traits, but it seems to have enough questions, including repeat questions to check your responses, to form a pretty good image of a person.
    The test suggested a number of professions, some of which I have done, but most were ones that I would not consider. Still, it was pretty good at guessing.

    The suggested jobs imply that I would make a better leader than manager, which I knew, but the test didn't directly state that I refuse to be controlled. Which is also true.

    The test also assesses a person's traits, which are important for matching career and happiness.

    It claims that my strongest trait is Enterprising and second strongest is Artistic, which makes me a Maverick.

    Strangely enough, I took an enneagram test which also said I was a Maverick. https://i.imgur.com/Pd7F2Dg.jpg

    Here is my trait assessment from this test:

    Your Trait Report


    You’re a leader - you’re more enterprising than 88% of the world.


    Trait Insights:

    Enterprising

    An enterprising person is someone who makes an excellent leader. They are excellent problem solvers and enjoy sales and management roles. This type of person is extroverted, and while they may seem restless or irresponsible, their energy and ability to take risks is the reason many projects get started and stay successful.
    You vs Everyone Else – 88%

    You value teaching, engineering, and skilled trades.

    Enterprising 71%
    Artistic 50%
    Investigative 46%
    Realistic 45%
    Social 20%
    Conventional 15%
    You are a Maverick

    Your strongest trait is Enterprising, and your second strongest is Artistic, which makes you a Maverick.
    Mavericks are natural influencers and love to express their artistic selves. They like to use their intuition when developing new ideas and generally have a competitive nature. They are willing to take risks and like environments where they are not tied down to any constraints.

    Skills You Can Focus On
    Mavericks tend to be self-confident, persuasive, and popular while also having an appreciation for the arts. They tend to enjoy creative activities like writing, art, and drama. They see themselves as expressive and original and enjoy influencing others. Mavericks tend to be very intuitive and are great at taking on tasks and bringing them to the next level. They are very expressive and know how to win over a crowd. They tend to do well in roles where they can be artistic directors because they are able to make decisions that lead a group of people to carry out their vision.

    Tendencies To Be Careful Of
    Because Mavericks tend to be very creative people that enjoy directing the overall vision for a group of people, they can sometimes run into trouble when they have to work on projects individually that only contribute to a portion of the overall vision. While Mavericks know that every piece is crucial to the final execution of a project, they would rather oversee the production or work on something that’s more connected to the overall vision and artistic expression than the practical elements. They also tend to value variety over routine and can lose interest if circumstances stay the same for too long.

    Am I reading you right: you got a physics B.Sc., but your grades were not good enough to get into graduate school? If that is correct, you'd be surprised: I can barely do anything in physics, but I just breezed through undergraduate computer science. Undergraduate math, astronomy, anything, isn't that hard for me either - physics I find impossible. If my assessment is correct, try taking some courses in a field like computer science or engineering. Then take the GREs and apply to graduate school. From what I've read about how hard physics is, you would probably get in and get through. (E.g., read about physics here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Physics/com...nted_to_share/)

Undergraduate math, astronomy, anything, isn't that hard for me either - physics I find impossible. If my assessment is correct, try taking some courses in a field like computer science or engineering. Then take the GREs and apply to graduate school. From what I've read about how hard physics is, you would probably get in and get through. (E.g., read about physics here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Physics/com...nted_to_share/)
    No. I went to engineering school for one year then decided to stop because it didnt feel right and my grades were pretty shitty. The social sciences were always way more up my alley.

    I say I'll never be able to have those jobs because the money and time required to start over would be prohibitive.

    This is a good one. Most of these I have considered for myself before.

    You are an Enthusiast

    Your strongest trait is Investigative, and your second strongest is Artistic, which makes you an Enthusiast.
    Enthusiasts are inquisitive and curious about things and like to solve problems in a methodical and rational way. They have the ability to express their ideas and concepts to others in an easy to understand and logical manner. They are also refreshingly open-minded and love to be inspired and motivated by different ideas and theories.

    Your Archetype is powered by the traits that make up your broad interests.



    ConventionalA conventional person is someone who is careful, quiet, and pays close attention to detail. Following a set of rules appeals to these people as they like to feel secure and certain. They prefer to carry out tasks assigned by others rather than take on a leadership role. They are typically neat, tidy, and enjoy working with data in structured settings.
    Skills You Can Focus On

    Enthusiasts are the most common archetype, representing about 10% of the population. Enthusiasts tend to be independent, curious, and analytical while also tending to be imaginative and idealistic. This combination usually makes Enthusiasts introspective people that have a proclivity for finding peculiarities in the world and trying to understand them. The investigative part of their archetype means they are thinkers, preferring work where they can read, understand, solve problems, and conduct their own experiments, while their artistic side is a creator and fascinated with new concepts and ideas. These curious tendencies usually make Enthusiasts excel in work where they can break down how something works, like in mathematics, medicine, or the sciences.
    Tendencies To Be Careful Of

    The Enthusiast’s aptitude for creative thinking and their desire to work at their own pace, conduct research, and think abstractly, can sometimes stifle their ability to lead a team or work within a group people where they are constrained by a timeline. Their tendency to favor work that is more scientific or academic can also mean that they sometimes have difficulty following highly systematic or repetitive tasks like data entry or keeping track of small details.

    Well, peeps, I am officially a Groundbreaker .

    Your strongest trait is Investigative, and your second strongest is Enterprising, which makes you a Groundbreaker.
    Groundbreakers have a diverse nature that allows them to spend time mulling over theories as well as expressing ideas. They can usually persuade other people to see their ways of thinking. They love investigating and synthesizing abstractions and are very self-confident. Once a Groundbreaker has finished conceiving an idea or developing a theory, they are able to verbally express their thoughts to others with conviction.

    Skills You Can Focus On
    The Groundbreaker’s two main functions, investigative and enterprising, are actually opposites, but of the six opposite archetypes, Groundbreakers are actually the most common of them all, representing 3–4% of the population. While they have a natural inclination to be inquisitive, introspective, and methodical, their enterprising side wants to be assertive, enthusiastic, and take charge. This combination lends itself well in settings where there is an ambitious project underway that needs to get off the ground and into the public. Groundbreakers have the ability to work on a project and then get it in front of the right people and sell it with genuine conviction.

    Tendencies to be careful of

    Because Groundbreakers have such diametrical functions, they must deal with a clash between their two strongest traits. This difference can make career and life choices difficult when one function must take a backseat to the other. So much of the Groundbreaker wants to spend time thinking through difficult problems or trying to understand new concepts, while the enterprising side craves to be in front of other people, taking risks, or engaging in competition. Though this awkward in-between puts the Groundbreaker in a very unique position where he or she is able to take a very structured and analytical project to new heights where it can be seen as something that holds authority.

    Other than that:
    Investigative 71
    Enterprising 58
    Artistic 50
    Conventional 35
    Realistic 30
    Social 15

    I'm surprised at the low digits of my Social range because I didn't feel like I answered in a way that was low on sociability. In this light it's interesting that I got a couple of Psychologist professions as my 5/5 (some 4/5), along with a Detective (!) and Author. And then, Interior Designer. A bit all over the place . It got that right at least.
    At this again.

    The test suggested a number of professions, some of which I have done, but most were ones that I would not consider. Still, it was pretty good at guessing.

    The suggested jobs imply that I would make a better leader than manager, which I knew, but the test didn't directly state that I refuse to be controlled. Which is also true.

    The test also assesses a person's traits, which are important for matching career and happiness.

    It claims that my strongest trait is Enterprising and second strongest is Artistic, which makes me a Maverick.

    Strangely enough, I took an enneagram test which also said I was a Maverick. https://i.imgur.com/Pd7F2Dg.jpg

    Here is my trait assessment from this test:

    Your Trait Report


    You’re a leader - you’re more enterprising than 88% of the world.


    Trait Insights:

    Enterprising

    An enterprising person is someone who makes an excellent leader. They are excellent problem solvers and enjoy sales and management roles. This type of person is extroverted, and while they may seem restless or irresponsible, their energy and ability to take risks is the reason many projects get started and stay successful.
    You vs Everyone Else – 88%

    You value teaching, engineering, and skilled trades.

    Enterprising 71%
    Artistic 50%
    Investigative 46%
    Realistic 45%
    Social 20%
    Conventional 15%
    You are a Maverick

    Your strongest trait is Enterprising, and your second strongest is Artistic, which makes you a Maverick.
    Mavericks are natural influencers and love to express their artistic selves. They like to use their intuition when developing new ideas and generally have a competitive nature. They are willing to take risks and like environments where they are not tied down to any constraints.

    Skills You Can Focus On
    Mavericks tend to be self-confident, persuasive, and popular while also having an appreciation for the arts. They tend to enjoy creative activities like writing, art, and drama. They see themselves as expressive and original and enjoy influencing others. Mavericks tend to be very intuitive and are great at taking on tasks and bringing them to the next level. They are very expressive and know how to win over a crowd. They tend to do well in roles where they can be artistic directors because they are able to make decisions that lead a group of people to carry out their vision.

    Tendencies To Be Careful Of
    Because Mavericks tend to be very creative people that enjoy directing the overall vision for a group of people, they can sometimes run into trouble when they have to work on projects individually that only contribute to a portion of the overall vision. While Mavericks know that every piece is crucial to the final execution of a project, they would rather oversee the production or work on something that’s more connected to the overall vision and artistic expression than the practical elements. They also tend to value variety over routine and can lose interest if circumstances stay the same for too long.
    EIE confirmed?
