About This Quiz

Most jobs take up forty hours of your week. And since there's only 168 hours in a week, that's nearly a quarter of your week spent at work! That's why it's important to figure out which sort of job matches your personality. Your work should be personally rewarding, and it should make you feel fulfilled. After you tell us about your traits, we will let you know which three jobs you are most likely to love the most. 

Every industry has a number of jobs, but it's important to know which job within a field would make you feel most complete. In order to correctly place you with the three jobs you would love, we need to get to know you and your most dominant traits. Once we know you better than your best friend, we'll share the jobs that were built for someone like you. 

If you are a true introvert, a first responder job might not be right for you. However, your other traits might make you a better nurse or teacher.
