Anoher variation on personality testing that I wrote about on Alwaysbejobhunting.com
A new company is updating the idea of using an inkblot test to help college students choose a career.
Researchers at the company, Woofound Inc., have built an application for students that uses their reactions to a series of images to predict their personalities and to suggest careers tailored to their preferences. The creators also plan to have the application suggest what degrees they should pursue and what extracurricular activities they should join.
The project is part of a wave of technology applications that colleges are testing to help track students into fields that fit their interests.
While using the Woofound Career Module, students sift through 84 slides of images with words associated, such as a picture of a tent along with the word “camping,” or a picture of a man painting along with the phrase “creative expression.” Students click either “Me” or “Not Me” in response to each image.
