Interest Profiler :: Instructions

The Interest Profiler has a series of questions about work activities that some people do on their jobs. Your job is to read each question carefully and decide whether or not you would like to do the work activity. By answering the questions, you can identify your interests.

As you make your choices on The Interest Profiler try not to think about whether you have enough education or training to perform the activity or how much money you would make performing the activity. Simply think about whether you would like or dislike doing the work activity if you had a chance to do it.

Start at the top of each screen. Answer all the questions in order. You will not be able to move to the next page until you have answered all the questions.

  • To answer a question, you can use your mouse to click on one of the letters, or press the letter on your keyboard.
  • When you finish a page of questions, click on the forward button.
  • To review a screen you have already completed, click on the back button.

At any point during the Profiler you can change your answer to a question. Simply use your mouse to move to the question where you want to change your answer. Then select your new answer.

THIS IS NOT A TEST. THERE ARE NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWERS. YOU CAN TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU NEED.

The only goal is for you to learn about your interests so you can explore work that might be satisfying and rewarding to you.

There are 180 questions.
