Get to know yourself

Should you be an accountant or entrepreneur? An IT consultant or account manager? Passion is part of the equation, but your personality also determines what occupation is a good fit.

Why take a personality test?

Besides the fact that the personality test feedback can help you with your career development and choices, there are three more good reasons to take a personality test:

  • Helps you understand your strengths and weaknesses
  • Gives insight in how you interact with others
  • Feels good to know yourself

We selected a couple of personality tests you can take. The most commonly known and used tests are:

Big 5 Personality test

Gives you feedback on five core areas: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism (OCEAN). You receive a personal feedback report by email.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

Differentiates between 16 personality types based on the personality theory described by C. G. Jung. The basic idea of the theory is that seemingly random variation in people’s behavior is actually quite consistent and can be explained on the basis of four personality dimensions.
