How your personality type affects your career, education, and income

Wondering what to do with your life? Try taking a personality test.

The best known of these, the Myers-Briggs, assesses you based on a series of questions and assigns you a MBTI type, such as ESTJ: extraversion (E), sensing (S), thinking (T), judgment (J); or INFP: introversion (I), intuition (N), feeling (F), perception (P).

From there, you can apparently figure out the career for which you are best suited.

You have to pay to take the one attached to this infographic from Career Assessment Site but there are free versions available online, such as this one from HumanMetrics.

I’d take it with a grain of salt, though. I just took it and was told I was an ISFJ: introversion (I), sensing (s), feeling (f), judgment (j). And, if there’s one thing we can say for sure about me, it’s that I am not an introvert. Judgmental, yes. But the rest of it? I don’t know. And, apparently, I should go into social work or counseling, and am good at organization. I can’t tell you how wrong that is.

Still it’s fun, and may be more accurate for you. You can take the test here, and view your career suggestions, while the below infographic will tell you things like the strengths and weaknesses, and average household income for your type.
