Jungian Holland Types Indicator

The Jungian Holland Types Indicator is a seventy statement assessment based on the work of Carl Jung and John Holland. It is designed to discover your particular combination of types and styles across four Jungian scales – Extraversion/Introversion; Sensing/Intuitive; Thinking/Feeling and Judging/Perceptive and the six types of Holland types including, Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional. When you complete the assessment and arrive at the results page you will find your scores relative to each of the measures displayed there. Simply take note of your Jungian scales first i.e, is your Extraversion score higher than Introversion? – if it is then you are an E – is your Sensing score higher than your Intuitive score? – then you are an S and so on until you reach a Jungian four type result such as, ENTP, or INFP, for example. Some people will find that they may score equally on a scale measure such that their Extraversion score is the same as their Introversion score and this is not uncommon and tends to suggest that when your mood is higher then you may approach things with an extraverted style, however when you are a little down you may be more introverted. In this case, when your mood is buoyant your energy tends to move outwards and you are more focussed upon the world around you, however when you are more depressed then you tend to focus inwards and become more reflective about thoughts.

Next, take note of your three or four highest Holland scores and then go to the Personal Styles page and read about the career areas that suit your Jungian types result and the areas that Holland would suggest for you. Ideally, the career areas suggested by both will be compatible and will provide confirmation that you are on the right track.
