work type is ENFJ and my style is that of an imaginative
harmonizer & worker with people. For me, it is always
important to consider other people’s feelings. I always look to
uncover the "best" in everyone I meet. Trustworthy, conscientious,
loyal, nurturing, and supportive are just some of the words I would
use to characterize myself. I am at my finest when I am working
harmoniously with other people dedicated to changing the world for
the benefit of humanity.
primary career type is social. This affirms my interest
in other people and I consider myself sensitive to their needs.
I have always enjoyed and worked well with others in a team for
I truly value interpersonal relations. Being able to influence other
people’s behaviour with my verbal and social skills allows me to
guide and assist them in realizing their potential. Enterprising
is my secondary career type. By using my leaderships skills, I am
apt to make significant contributions to the success of others.
In future, I aspire to organize and lead people to produce a valuable
service within my own consulting firm. The career type that is tertiary
for me is artistic. I like to express my thoughts
and feelings through my work and when communicating ideas. Therefore,
the work I do elicits a sense of meaning and fulfillment for me.
career anchor is sense of service/dedication to a cause &
entrepreneurial creativity. A key motivating factor for
me is to dedicate my work and life to being of service to others
as a counsellor. I am committed to preserving values important to
me and in the world around me. I also have a strong need to create
a new service/business where I can be recognized as being competent
in my field.
values and needs I feel are most significant to me include: helping
others, affiliation/work with others, a supportive environment/supportive
supervisor, being in the field of my strongest interest, and change
and variety. The most important values and needs that I
feel are not satisfied in my worklife are: intellectual status,
and prestige and recognition.
skills in which I excel and have allowed me to be successful include:

on a team, relating to a wide variety of people, showing warmth
and support, communicating effectively, and implementing and following
through. The functional skills currently in development
are: designing training programs, acting assertively, and speaking
well in public. It is my plan to develop these skills by taking
additional courses and practicing them in my current work.
strongest adaptive skills that I possess are: getting along
well with others, demonstrating concern for others, being committed
to personal growth, planning effectively, achievement-oriented,
and hardworking. I need to improve on increasing my political

need to concentrate on overcoming include: fear of age limitations
