About the The Career Magnifier Profiler
The Career Interests Profiler assesses your interest in a variety of activities, industries and occupations to identify potential career paths and areas of study. It is based on your individual preferences and is designed to help you discover the type of work you are most likely to enjoy. This career test is suitable for a wide range of people and contains an extensive database of careers and areas of study.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test was later developed by mother and daughter, Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers (inspired by Jung’s publication Psychological Types (1921), with help from experienced psychometricians), as way of helping people identify their personality type to better understand themselves – and others.
“The understanding of type can make your perceptions clearer, your judgements sounder, and your life closer to your heart’s desire.”
- Isabel Myers
Your type is made up of four letters (each representing your preference in Jung’s four psychological functions) and is one of 16 types in total. The way your preferences combine make you unique. You are not defined by your type, but your type will help you understand why the way you process information, and relate to the world, may be quite different to those around you – even your family.
Using the MBTI to find your best career match
No matter what your type is, it’s important to remember that no type is any better than another. Rather, each type comes with its own inherent strengths and weaknesses, and will function differently to others in different environments.
Nor should you feel restricted by your type. For instance, if you show a preference for feeling over thinking, it doesn’t mean you aren’t smart or can’t make logical decisions. However, you may find it more demanding to work in a field where objective reasoning takes precedence over subjective reasoning (such as law or science). If you are drawn to these fields, consideration may need to be given to what sectors you focus your career on, in order to maximise your natural strengths, while minimising areas of natural conflict.
This is where your qualified MBTI Career Smart practitioner can help. We assess your type, then get to know more about who you are as a person. Only then can we match the areas you’re most passionate about with the right job characteristics for long-term happiness and success.
