Find how your passion relates to your career with this 11-question assessment. This tool places you in one of four categories: Firestarter, Tribe Member, Side Hustler, and Thriver.
I am a Firestarter. As a firestarter, I am attracted to freedom, creation, passion, independence, rebellion, leadership, and flexibility. Some of my natural attributes and strengths are that I am passionate, intrinsically motivated, and have a deep desire to create. Common drawbacks and challenges for this type are being multi-focused, being a perfectionist, and a possibility of burnout.
Based on the Holland Career Code test, this test measures 6 categories of interest: realistic, building, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, and conventional. My top three are investigative, artistic, and social. You can then select a job level based on your experience. This tool then provides you with careers that may be suited for you. Unsurprisingly, various psychology jobs were suggested for me.
The Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential assessment is composed of 71 items which gauge your preferences.
