In the early stages of career exploration, many students need help finding a starting point. That combined with the fact that they love taking personality tests and quizzes makes this a great activity for them to find some direction.
Students will need internet access. This is a fairly straightforward worksheet with three parts. Part One directs students to a website to take a Myers-Briggs style personality test. They will learn their personality type and a little bit about it. Part Two directs them to a second website where they can learn about their type in more detail. Part Three asks them to reflect on the results of the test and the career suggestions they were given.
I use this at the beginning of the careers unit of my Resource Management (Consumer Education) course. My students enjoy reading the descriptions of their type and seeing how accurate they are. For students who are undecided on their future careers, the activity gives them some guidance to help pick an area for career research later in the unit.
