30 Great Jobs Based on Your Personality Test
Personality tests have many uses: from quick and easy ice-breakers at parties to mirrors that give us a clearer picture of ourselves and help us better understand who we are.
Thus surprisingly… or unsurprisingly enough, the test first began as a spiritual quest.
Katherine Briggs, the creator of this highly popular test, was a deeply religious woman who understood the meaning of life to be rooted in understanding who you are and living your life as the best version of yourself. On the opposite end was her daughter, Isabel Briggs Meyers, who adopted her mother’s desire for people sorting, but only to help them with job placement, rather than as a spiritual endeavor.
The mother-daughter duo started what was called the “cosmic laboratory of baby training” in their living room in the 1900s where they tested the personalities of neighborhood children to see if they were: introverted or extroverted; judging or empathetic; thinking or feeling, etc. and thus began what is now known today as the Meyers-Briggs Personality Test.
