The Career Personality Inventory (CPI) is based on the personality types created by Carl Jung (and later adapted by Meyers and Briggs for the MBTI) that have been used in a wide variety of educational and counseling situations for decades. The CPI uses a simple and innovative testing method requiring test takers to simply circle words that describe them and then total the number of descriptors circled.

The CPI then helps users consider how their personalities relate to their careers by focusing on their top two traits. Users can match their personality types to careers and work preferences and then use the career planning guide and worksheet to set goals and start their career research.
