Curious About Your Work Personality? Try This Short Quiz!

Wondering what your work personality is but don’t have the time to take long-winded personality tests? Try this short quiz to get a rough idea of what kind of worker you are.

Your personality says a lot about the type of worker you are. Education and experience aside, your personality is also an important factor that can determine your workplace relationships, career journey, and the kind of profession you have. 

However, most available personality tests are not tailored to measure personality at the workplace. On top of that, they can be very long-winded. We know you’re busy but if you want to know more about your work personality, we’ve prepared a simplified version just for you. 

Only five questions — easy peasy!

Get the right support for your career journey

While personality tests may be fun and, to a certain extent, help you identify some characteristics that you may not be aware of, it is not definitive of how you will behave in the workplace. 

If you need support in your job search or career advice, head to Career GRIT, where you can explore career events and resources designed to help you develop your skills and expand your knowledge. 

Good luck in your career journey!
