Knowing yourself can predict whether or not you will be content with your career of choice even before you start work. There are several free sites out there, but only a few are legitimate and fully free. Some of them on this list will require an email confirmation. Be assured that you will not receive any spam mail from the sites provided in the Personality Profile list. A few sites will promote you to purchase a full profile. A partial one is sufficient to get a good picture for the soft skills you can promote on your resume or in your cover letter.
Many of these quizzes have psychology background; however, a psychology degree is not necessary for interpreting the results nor is professional help required. You are identifying terminology necessary to promote yourself in your portfolio, digital brand, social media, and resume/cover letter.
Jung Typology Test
The 16 personality types created by Carl Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers provide a four letter code that offers insight into your temperament. The code will give you verbiage you can use in a cover letter or resume to give your future employer a clear picture of how you react to situations.
Keirsey Temperament Sorter
Keirsey is similar to the Jung test in that it gives a four letter code (the two codes may not match). The difference is that it gives a defining role that you play in society. This verbiage is excellent to use when referring to your leadership roles on your resume or cover letter.
IPersonic Personality Profile
IPersonic is a fun and fast way to get a brief overview of your personality in relation to yourself and your career. This quick quiz would be an excellent response to the interview questions, "Why do you want this job?" or "Why do you think you'd be a good fit?"
Color Code Personality Test
Color Code is based on your childhood personality. If you're a Millennial, this personality quiz is great because of your ability to tap into your childhood memories. If you're older than the Millennial cut off date (any year earlier than the late 1980s) this quiz can be used to reflect on how far you've come.
Similar to Susan Cain's introvert quiz, this test provided by Psychology Today offers a more in-depth look at the qualities of introverts versus extroverts.
