In this test you had to choose between pictures showing specific work activities. Each picture depicted work associated with a specific type of personality. These types are derived from Dr. John Holland’s theory of careers and vocational choice, known as Holland Codes.

There are six personality types in Holland’s model:


  • Realistic: practical, physical, concrete, hands-on, machine, and tool-oriented
  • Investigative: analytical, intellectual, scientific, explorative, thinker
  • Artistic: creative, original, independent, chaotic, inventive, media, graphics, and text
  • Social: cooperative, supporting, helping, healing/nurturing, teaching
  • Enterprising: competitive environments, leadership, persuading, status
  • Conventional: detail-oriented, organizing, clerical

You preferred ‘Artistic’ the most, followed by ‘Realistic’ and ‘Enterprising’. Your six letter personality type is ‘ARESIC’. Your personal preference is also shown in a graph below.

Artistic 27%, Social 17%, Enterprising 17%, Investigative 12%, Realistic 17%, Conventional 12%
