Psychometric Assessments

How well do you know yourself? Do you really know why you're seeking a career transition?

There are a variety of psychometric assessments that may provide valuable insights as you prepare for a career transition. These tests reveal personality, behavior traits, strengths and weaknesses, and even some hidden insights about a person.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Big Five
DiSC Profile
CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthsFinder)
High Potential Trait Indicator (HPTI) 

While these types of assessments have traditionally been used to define one's personality, they can also provide insights as one navigates different seasons in life. A transition from a clinical career to a non-clinical career can be quite transformative and disruptive in many ways (potentially both good and bad). Which psychometric assessments have you taken? If you took them prior to medical school, it may be time to take a different one. You will probably gain some new insights about yourself as you take these throughout your career.
