Dr John Holland, born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1919, was an American Psychologist who contributed much to the psychology behind personality. He has written several books, including "A theory of vocational choice" and "Exploring Careers with a typography."
Conventional people are the organizers. They work with written records and are orderly and detailed. They value success.
Investigative people are analytical and intellectual, and they value science. They are the researchers and the detectives.
My 3 traits are Investigative, then Artistic, then Social (IAS). Investigative is my dominant trait, with the other two being recessive. It makes sense, because I like to research and learn more about the world! That's why I became a psychology teacher!
My Two Careers
Given my traits, I picked two careers that used my traits, specifically my investigative or social traits: I could be an anthropologist or a history teacher.
Anthropology is the study of humans. Anthropologists study the different aspects of the human experience. They research the past to explore our origins, study our biological makeup, and compare us to to other animals. This requires a masters or a doctoral degree.
Explanation of Anthropology
I took the test and it was very easy to understand and mostly effective. However, I wish there was more diversity in the questions. I felt like some questions were too closely related and wouldn't help the findings, because they were so similar.
Anthropology sounds interesting, and if I ever wanted to become one, I would be making round $63,000, but it isn't that booming of an industry, as its only projected to grow about 4% between 2014 and 2024.
History teachers teach students aspects about history, whether that be world history, history about a specific time period, or history about a certain area, and help students acquire the necessary skills two write and explain what they've learned.
