ASSESS YOUR SKILLS

PLAN OF ANALYSIS: OCEANA S. MAGEE | WINTER 2018 | AOS 210

STEP 1. GATHER INFORMATION

What is your RIASEC code? List your self-assessed type or the results of an assessment, such as the
Strong Interest Inventory tool or the Self-Directed Search (SDS)

Three Letter Code: A C S

Artistic Conventional

What are your preferences according to the dichotomies assessed in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Four Letter Type: I N F P or I N F J

NF: in our text on page 65, NF enjoys imagining, creating with others, and writing
Introversion

List the careers you wish to explore that are consistent with the types in your RIASEC code, your MBTI type, or both.

Applied art & design, performance & fine arts, earth sciences (MBTI Types, pg. 62)
(Fabricant)

Design, Humanities, Music Education, Medical Transcription, Secretarial Procedures


(Fabricant 55-56); Artistic and Conventional occupations are incongruent types (Fabricant
53).

STEP 2. EVALUATE THE INFORMATION

What did your RIASEC code tell you about your preferences?

My RIASEC results suggest close to even preferences for artistic, conventional and social
activities. The enterprising element is practically nonexistent. The artistic and
conventional are incongruent, as mentioned above.

To express this, finding a creative outlet such as design and applying some structure to it
for the conventional spirit would be ideal. I think a natural history guide, providing
information to visitors would be fulfilling.

What did your MBTI type tell you about your preferences?

My MBTI type suggests I’m introverted yet expressive. I prefer to do a lot of creative work
alone, yet as ‘The Healer’ (Truity) I exude compassionate and sympathetic idealism.
This sounds like an activist position, or as suggested by Truity, a patron of the arts. 1
Another thing Truity says about INFP is that it is the personality type most likely to stay at
home with their children.

What further information would be helpful to learn about the careers that reflect your patterns of interests and
personality characteristics?

It would be helpful to learn if the types and assessments are thought to be a constant or
change as a persons life experiences and life roles progress.

It would also be helpful to look at the lifestyle associated with each occupation, to see
if it is sustainable according to the personality type.

Job forecast and expected income are also important considerations.

STEP 3: MAKE CONCLUSIONS

characteristics of your RIASEC code or MBTI type)

1. Original and authentic


2. creative
3. compassionate
4. arts appreciation

Following your analysis, create a list of the top five career areas or jobs that you want to explore further based on your
assessment of your preferences
