Help students understand who they are and refine career guidance

Quote Carl Jung

AchieveWorks Personality

AchieveWorks® Personality, part of the AchieveWorks suite, has been used by millions of students around the world to explore their personality and help them better understand themselves and others. Students can make confident, informed decisions about their futures with suggested careers and associated college majors that have been shown to be most successful for people just like them.

People are happiest and most successful in work that allows them to use their greatest gifts, and personality is the best way to determine what those gifts are. Personality is the innate way in which people naturally see the world and make decisions. Unlike values, skills and interests, which can change over time, personality remains constant throughout a person’s life and contains a set of basic drives and motivations that can be instrumental in selecting a career.

Based on the work of Carl Jung, Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, AchieveWorks Personality has been written and normed specifically for students in ninth grade through college. Online and fully automated, AchieveWorks Personality  allows educators and counselors to provide more refined, personalized guidance. They can spend more time helping students and less time trying to figure out a student’s strengths and challenges, connecting their career and education plans, and creating strategies to help them find more satisfaction and success in life.

For an even greater understanding of each student, AchieveWorks Personality works together with AchieveWorks Intelligences and AchieveWorks Learning & Productivity to reveal different aspects of an individual’s talents, gifts and preferences, as well as leading to the best possible career matches using Human eSources Career Matching Technology™.
