Jung Typology Test

The Jung Typology Test makes psychological (personality) types understandable and useful. It helps you determine how to best interact with others; the kind of information you naturally notice and remember; whether you make decisions impersonally based on logic and fact or by using personal values and feelings; and your preference for spontaneity or structure in life. Once you complete the assessment, contact the Student Success Center with your four-letter code and receive additional information.

Self Directed Search Logo - small

Self-Directed Search

The Self-Directed Search was developed by John Holland, whose theory states that most people can be loosely categorized into six types including Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Enterprising, and Conventional and that occupations and work environments can also be classified by these categories. According to Holland, people who choose careers that match their own type are most likely to be both satisfied and successful.  The SDS can help you understand more about yourself and how your individual skills and interests are related to your career choice.  Taking the Self-Directed Search will determine your three-letter Holland code to help you find the careers that best match your interests and abilities.  Contact the Student Success Center for access to the assessment at (501) 882-8906.
