I've mentioned before that I like career assessment tests . Of course any test on it's own cannot answer the big question "What should I do with my life?" But, when you take several assessments over time, after awhile you start to see a theme. Eventually the core of who you are shows through. When you understand your basic core - how you are wired - you can use that information to have a more productive life where you are contributing and growing your skills and talents through your work.
I ran across an interesting one recently - the Personality ID Assessment from the Career Direct Guidance System. I'm a "Networker" - no surprise there. But I like the way they define it, and the simple explanation of the "typical areas of struggle" and "typical areas of strength."
What Personality ID are you?
