Providing Personality and Emotional Intelligence Assessments as well as Career Guidance
Why this site?
The “My Virtual Career Counselor” website was developed to provide vocational and career guidance to individuals and to offer personality and emotional intelligence assessments to individuals, leaders, and teams.
The three primary online assessments include the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI), The Strong Vocational Interest Inventory, and the Emotional Intelligence Quotient Inventory (EQ-i). In addition, one on one feedback and coaching sessions are offered.
The Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator Assessment
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment delivers insights into your personality preferences. Based on sound psychological theory and backed by more than 70 years of research, it’s the world’s best-known and most widely used personality assessment.
The Strong Vocational and Career Interest Inventory
The Strong Interest Inventory assessment provides robust insight into a person’s interests, to help them to consider potential careers, their educational path and the world of work. Built on psychologist John Holland’s theory, it’s backed by more than 80 years of research into how people of similar interests are employed, and what motivates individuals in the workplace.
The Emotional Intelligence Inventory
Emotional Intelligence (EI) refers to a distinct combination of emotional and social skills and competencies that influence our overall capability to cope effectively with the demands and pressures of work and life. The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) incorporates more than 20 years’ research and development. It is a psychometrically sound, validated assessment instrument.
