In our culture, most people can be categorised as one of six types: Realistic,
Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, or Conventional. Each
type is the product of a characteristic interaction among a variety of cultural
and personal forces including peers, biological heredity, parents, social
class, culture, and the physical environment.
Out of these interactions, a person learns to prefer some activities as opposed
to others. Later these activities become strong interests, leading to a special
group of competencies. By comparing a person’s attitudes with those of each
type, we can determine what type one most resembles.
The objective of this assessment is to help you focus your interests in a
career direction through the use of a model developed by John Holland.
