Interpretation

Ignore all C responses. They simply indicate a lack of interest in a particular area, and should not be included in your scoring. You should now have four scores, each between 0 and 16. A score of 0 Ė 4 shows very little interest in a particular area. 5 Ė 12 is about average. A score of 13 and over shows a strong interest, and the highest of your four scores indicates which area of work is mostly likely to suit the requirements of your individual personality.

People

Within the world of People, if you have more A than B answers, you are more interested in caring for people than in influencing them. You should therefore be looking for a career in the medical, welfare or education fields: for example, doctor, dentist, psychiatrist, health visitor, radiographer, social worker, speech-therapist, teacher or lecturer. But if you have scored more B than A answers, you are more likely to feel at home in a job involving control, commerce, or management: for example, the armed forces, police, prison officer, security guard, sales representative, marketing manager, property developer, advertising executive or market researcher.

 

Procedures and Systems

If your original score places you in the world of Procedures and Systems, more A than B answers points to a career in administrative, legal or clerical work: for example, Civil Servant, office manager, personnel manager, company secretary, solicitor, professional secretary, librarian, archivist, book researcher or records officer. If you have more B than A answers, the chances are your in Procedures and Systems will be better catered for finance and data processing. Suitable careers include: accountancy, banking, valuing, economics, computer programming and systems analysis.
