RIASEC Personality Inventory
The RIASEC personality inventory is based on the work of John Holland and his theory of vocational choice. His theory proposes that people like to be around others who have similar personalities. This means that, in choosing a career, people choose jobs enabling them to be around other people who are like them. It is the best known and most widely researched theory on this topic and is used by most career counselors. Holland’s six personality types (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional) relate to six work environments. Results of the RIASEC will include the student’s primary and secondary personality type. Each personality type is described and is followed by a list of related occupations.

Select number of questions for each of 6 personality types. (For best results, select at least 15 for a total of 90 questions). Start the test and complete the questions.
O*NET OnLineThe O*NET program is the nation's primary source of occupational information. Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database is continually updated by surveying a broad range of workers from each occupation. Information from this freely available database forms the heart of O*NET OnLine, the interactive application for exploring and searching occupations. The database also provides the basis for Career Exploration Tools, a set of valuable assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
