Importance Of Occupational Alignment With Personality
The type of person you are determines your innermost core values and ambitions which in turn determines how you interact in society. A career provides a crucial focal point for people to implement their innermost values. The rewards are positive energies of fulfilment, self worth and affirmation of who you are.
Some of us know exactly what we want and where we're heading at any point in time. However, in reality the majority of us don't. In actual fact, research shows that the majority of the workforce are in jobs in which they are dissatisfied; and as we enter into each new year no less than a quarter of us strive to change jobs.
Wrong Jobs Cause Frustration And Unfulfilled Dreams
When you enter a field that does not match your personality, you are likely to find yourself unhappy, unfulfilled and confused due to lack of purpose and direction. This unhappy state of affairs invariably arises from lack of prior and adequate self introspection of ourselves and our innermost needs.
To avoid getting mired in an unfulfilling occupation, your long term direction and subsequent progression should be positively aligned firmly towards your true aspirations, based on affirmation of your core values, motivations and beliefs that uniquely defines your individuality. This can only materialize through self introspection, taking time to reflect on who you are, where you are, why you're there, how you got there and where to go next!
People whose core personalities and strengths are in tune with their careers are more fulfilled and tend to excel more. Discover your ideal work style with the popular online 15 minute myDISCprofile personality test.
