The Holland Code system, developed by Dr. John Holland, is widely used by career counselors & individuals to assist in determining personality traits used in career decision making. Holland’s theory explores six distinct personality types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, & Conventional. Knowing your Holland “type” can make sense of the relationship between personality strengths, occupational “types”, college majors, & career fields. The higher the Compatibility, the higher the chances are for career satisfaction. Check each item below that describes you, then add up the number of checks in each box & write the total beside the personality type beneath it. After writing your scores in the boxes beside the personality traits, circle the three that best describe you. Now, put a number one (1) by the personality trait that best describes you, a two (2) beside the next best descriptor, & a three (3) beside the next best descriptor. Write the first letter of each personality trait you chose, in order, in these spaces: ______ ______ ______ ; this indicates your “Holland Code.” You can use your personality strengths information/Holland Code to explore careers & college majors that fit well with your personality. This personality strengths tool is only intended to help you begin to understand how to match your personality with a career. Seek professional assistance from a career counselor in the Career Services Center to verify your results or to take on-line career assessments.
