Do What You Are personality type

The Do What You Are® personality type assessment has been used by millions of individuals around the world to help them better understand themselves and others. Do What You Are helps clients make more informed decisions about their future. People are happiest and most successful in work that allows them to use their greatest gifts, and personality type is the best way to determine what those gifts are. Personality type is the innate way people naturally see the world and make decisions. Unlike values, skills and interests, which can change as we age, personality type remains constant throughout a person’s life and contains a set of basic drives and motivations that can be instrumental in selecting a career.
