Do you realize that what you end up doing for a living is an extension of you? This is why academic advisors often have prospective students take career placement tests. Within these tests is the ability to determine your personality. Because certain personalities do better in and enjoy certain fields more these tests are a good way for you understand where you could contribute the most.

One assessment of personality that has been helpful in many settings over the years has been one called The Color Code. I have taken this test a handful of times in my life at different jobs and it’s always been helpful for me to understand a little bit more about how other people tick. Knowing for example that my boss is motivated by action (Red Color Type), I am more likely to create to do list and share with him as the items become checked off. Or when I know that an associate is motivated by fun (Yellow Color Type), it is helpful for me to set a goal with them of a party after we accomplish a certain goal.

Do you have a personality that easily diffuses conflict and makes upset people feel at ease in their uneasiness? According to the Color Code test you may be a White Color Type. Whites typically are conflict avoiders, so when confronted by a challenge they will do what they can to diffuse the situation so as to avoid the conflict. White Color Types have peacemaker tendencies at their core.

If this is in your personality (you may wish to take the test for yourself to see what your core motives are) you may be good at a job in hospitality management. This is a job where you have the opportunity to spend time with people all day. The faces change often and you have the chance to help others diffuse conflicts. You get a chance to magnify your inner people pleasing skills.
