Introduction to Career Assessment Quiz Template:

Career Assessment Quiz Template

This template provides you with the basis for building your own Career Assessment Quiz Template.

It is based on the Open Extended Jungian Type Scales 1.2 framework developed by Eric Jorgenson.

The framework developed by Eric Jorgenson is similar to the  Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which is perhaps the most well-known personality test available. The indicator assesses your personality type and explores career options.

By taking the personality test you can be better informed about which career would suit your personality type.

Although different types function better in certain environments, no personality type is superior to any other. Many career planning experts believe that when you know your personality type, as discovered by using the Myers Briggs or another personality inventory, you can make better decisions about your career.

Your result can help you choose an occupation and suss out which work environments are a good fit for you.


This test categorizes people into one of 16 different personality types. It determines whether you gravitate towards extroversion or introversion, sense or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving

Here's a brief guide to understanding the four categories within the test:

    • Extroversion (E) or Introversion (I): This is about how you get your energy. Do you turn inward or outward for sources of energy?
    • Sense (S) or Intuition (N): Which one you gravitate toward reveals how you perceive and absorb information. People who get an S result are more likely to use past experience and common sense to evaluate situations, while the intuition-focused readily see the big picture and patterns.
    • Thinking (T) or Feeling (F): With this personality trait, your decision-making style is revealed. Thinkers are guided by logic and common sense, while feelers may rely on values feelings. For feeling types, the decision-making process may be guided by how a decision would affect others.
    • Judging (J) or Perceiving (P): T Simply put, this refers to how you like to live your life. Judging types are organized and comfortable working within rules and frameworks. You can count on someone of this type having a five-year plan. Perceiving types are more likely to prefer a flexible environment, adapting plans as needed. 

    Important: This template is not set up to be a working personality test. To get this template working as a personality test, you can set up a Zap. It’s super easy to do, just follow these instructions: Make the Career Assessment Quiz Template work by following the steps outlined below, (sourced from our article on Jungian/Myers-Briggs cognitive functions).

    It's super easy to set up a Zap to do that for you. Here's how to get it working

    The Process Street side of things is pretty straightforward. It’s just 32 questions with answers weighted from 1 to 5, based on Eric Jorgensen’s Open Extended Jungian Types Scales 1.2 framework. The questions and results for the whole test are based on this framework.

    Then things move over to Zapier, a third-party automation tool that allows you to connect thousands of different apps together. The automations are called zaps, and we’re going to show you how we built ours.

    Inside Zapier, things get a little more interesting. The zap is made up of 10 steps which involve crunching a few numbers and using "IF" statements to get the final results.

    Let's take a look at the zap:

    Those 10 steps are basically doing four distinct things:

    1. Triggering the zap in Process Street, whenever the task completing the final question is checked;
    2. Summing all of the answer values relevant for each of the four Jungian type categories, based on the OEJTS framework;
    3. Doing a simple IF, ELSE statement for each of the four Jungian type categories (also based on the OEJTS framework) which gives us the result of the test;
    4. Returning the results of the test to the original Process Street checklist.

    Step one is easy, just selecting the task that I want to trigger the results to start calculating. Logically, it’s the final task in the checklist:

    Step two is also straightforward, as it’s simply looking at the OEJTS formula, and summing the values for each of the questions relevant for each of the four main types. If you’re interested in the formula, check it out again here.

    To sum the values for each of the Process Street tasks, I’m using Formatter by Zapier, with the type of event set to “Numbers”.

    Then, in the same step we use a Spreadsheet-Style Formula transformation to grab all of the relevant values and add them up:

    Here’s a better look at what the formula looks like for summing up all the values:

    Remember: This example is the result of the specific formula that was used to process the Jungian type index for the personality test result. 

    The result that you get out of this sum is a single number value for each of the four type pairs.

    Step three takes a look at this number value, and runs an IF statement on it, to see if the value is greater than 24. Step three does this four times, for each of the type pairs.

    For example, in the first pair, which is either Extraverted or Introverted (**remember the list of the different types), if the number is greater than 24, the result is Extraverted. If it’s not, the result is Introverted.

    This same sum is true for the three remaining pairs.

    Here’s what the zap looks like:

    It’s also using Formatter by Zapier, with the event type of “Numbers”, along with Spreadsheet-Style Formatting.

    As you can see, the IF logic is simple.

    The value there is the result of the test from Step 2 - it is simply stating the obvious - with familiar spreadsheet-style formatting. Exactly the same as how you’d write it in Google Sheets, or Excel.

    Finally, step four specifies the location concerning where to send the test results. In our case, the location is the Process Street checklist. Zapier already knows the location from step 1, so the action type is “Update Checklist”.

    Pop the checklist ID in there (from step 1, the original Process Street trigger) and specify the forms you want to update with the results, and there you have it.

    The result, to the 32 questions, will be a four-letter type reference (INFP, ESTJ, etc.) that you can compare against established definitions of types for popular Jungian and MBTI personality tests. These definitions will be included at the end of this template.

    The premise of Jungian theory is that there are 16 different personality types, each type is comprised of four preferences for how an individual energizes, perceives information, makes decisions, and lives their life. There are two choices for each preference which can be visualized as a range, with individuals favoring one more than the other.

    • Energizes (Extroversion v. Introversion),
    • Perceives information (Sensing v. INtuition),
    • Makes decisions (Thinking v. Feeling) and
    • Lives their life (Judging v. Perceiving).

    We previously mentioned that Jung assigned a code to his personality types.

    The code is composed of four letters that refer to each preference. It is the interaction between the four preferences that make each type unique and makes one personality different from all the others (this is what your Zapier calculation was measuring).

      • ISTJ: ISTJs are independent, responsible, and focused.
      • ISFJ: ISFJs' positive qualities are optimism and love of adventure, but they can also be a bit disorganized and impulsive.
      • INFJ: Compassion and creativity are hallmarks of the INFJ personality type.
      • INTJ: A preference for innovation causes INTJs to continually want to improve themselves and others. They are independent.
      • ISTP: ISTPs like sitting back and observing from afar. They tend to be quiet and enjoy taking risks.
      • ISFP: Preferring to stay on the sidelines, ISFPs are quiet and easygoing. They like taking life day-by-day.
      • INFP: INFPs have easygoing demeanors unless they sense someone is violating one of their core values. They are very private and share their thoughts with a few people.
      • INTP: INTPs are independent but not self-focused. They strive to understand the world around them.
      • ESTP: Energetic and eager to be around others, ESTPs are also full of confidence and can be quite assertive.
      • ESFP: ESFPs value their relationships. They are generous and love life.
      • ENFP: ENFPs are outgoing and enthusiastic. They sometimes have trouble staying focused.
      • ENTP: Innovative and resourceful, ENTPs love solving problems, no matter how challenging they are.
      • ESTJ: If you want an opinion on just about anything, ask an ESTJ. They are excellent decision-makers who love having responsibilities.
      • ESFJ: ESFJs prefer to connect with others. They are rule followers and want everyone to be, as well.
      • ENFJ: Their concern for the well-being of others and strong communication skills, make them excellent leaders.
      • ENTJ: ENTJs know how to get things done and are great at getting other people to follow along. They are very energetic.

    By taking the personality test you can be better informed about which career would suit your personality type.

    Although different types function better in certain environments, no personality type is superior to any other. Many career planning experts believe that when you know your personality type, as discovered by using the Myers Briggs or another personality inventory, you can make better decisions about your career.

    Your result can help you choose an occupation and suss out which work environments are a good fit for you.
