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