What is RIASEC?

11.jpg

RIASEC is a test often used in personality psychology. Every person is unique. While one person may be good at math, someone else understands practical matters and another person has a great ability to persuade. All these traits can be used to describe personality types and to select a suitable work environment for the future.

The most important question, when it comes to choosing the right career, should be whether one is going to enjoy that specific kind of work and furthermore, whether one is going to understand it. The RIASEC theory supposes that everybody has an inner predisposition. These predispositions may be divided into six groups.

These six types can build a so-called "personality code", which is composed of the three letters of the strongest predispositions. For example, ICS would be the code for a scientifically oriented person who also has highly developed social and conventional predispositions.
