This is a free online test to determine your Holland Code (or RIASEC marker), it has no affiliation with the copyrighted Self-Directed Search®.
The Holland Codes are a system of personality typology developed by the pyschologist John L. Holland with the idea that peoples personalities are analogous to the types of occupations they prefer. The system measures people on six seperate scales of which the three highest scores in order represent an individuals type.
The original Holland Code test, called the Self-Directed Search, used forced choice preferences. This test uses the public domain RIASEC markers from the Interest Item Pool.
The test conists of 48 example tasks that you will have to rate by how much you would enjoy performing each on a scale of (1) dislike (2) slightly dislike (3) niether like not dislike (4) slightly enjoy (5) enjoy. The test will take approximately ten minutes.
The Holland Codes are extensively in life counseling. They have been found to be relatively stable over time and to predict career satisfaction. Like all personality tests though the codes are only a guide, the test can not reveal any hidden information about you and if you think the results are wrong, they most likely are.
