PART 3: PERSONALITIES AND THE IMPORTANCE IN YOUR CAREER SEARCH

Okay, part 3 is crucial for you to understand. Imagine if you are a talkative person who loves being around people. Well, let’s say you hear that being an Accountant or Engineer pays good money, but in those jobs you might be required to work on your own and always doing the same kind of work.  That doesn’t fit your talkative people-person personality, does it?

That’s the goal with this section.

Take a look at each color below and measure your own personality.  In fact, you can count up the number of personality traits that you have. The color that you have the most traits, then will lead you down the journey to finding specific careers that would suit your personality.

In other words, let’s say you’re a Green personality. Well, then you would probably be more suited to work in technical careers, maybe CADD, drafting, computer technology, architecture, accounting, etc.  Careers that fit around that personality color.

You certainly can choose more than 1 color.  If you do, that makes you that much more marketable for various careers and jobs.

If you recognize personality traits under every color, that’s fine.  Just know what those traits mean, and be able to explain how you have that trait.

Find the career that fits your personality type!
