How can I interpret the report?

Personality and Self-Image

What kind of person am I really? What positive qualities characterize me and what should I be careful with? What are my core qualities? To analyze your personality, we use the enneagram, a personality theory. This model categorizes nine different personality types with unique characteristics. Although all nine enneagram types may have aspects within you, one type usually dominates.

The basic personality refers to the core characteristics and attributes that make you unique. It’s how you naturally react to situations and how you generally behave. This forms the basis of who you are, regardless of the circumstances. On the other hand, we talk about self-image. This is how you see yourself and how you think others see you. It is sometimes influenced by external factors, such as feedback from others and past experiences. Few people have their basic personality the same as their self-image. There is no right or wrong. However, it is good to look at this and be aware of the differences.

Tip: Focus on the positive aspects of your personality and recognize potential pitfalls.

Work Environment

What kind of work environment suits my personality best? In this section, we show you which work environment suits you best. We base this on John L. Holland’s RIASEC model, which distinguishes six different work environments. Although you could function in all six environments, one type best matches your personality.

Tip: If you are looking for a different position or organization, consider whether the work environment is also appropriate.

Learning Style

Which learning style suits me best? Here we show your preferred learning style according to David Kolb’s model. This model divides learning styles into four behaviors and corresponding styles. While you probably recognize elements from all four learning styles, one style will best match your personality.

Tip: You can use your learning style when learning new things and it can help you with a project or giving advice.

Professions

What professions fit my personality? Which study suits me? We use the 27 job categories from the Profession Guide. We show you several professions at different educational levels mainly to broaden your perspective. Categories where you score above 60% are professions that, based on your personality, you might perform well in or pursue.

Tip: If you’re looking for a different position or study, consider which professions match your personality.

Competencies

Am I customer-oriented? How do I handle stress? Can I collaborate?

In this section, we show you your score on 29 different competencies. We use the classification from the book “The Art of Management” by M.A. Nieuwenhuis (ISBN-13: 978-90-806665-1-1, 2003-2010). Competencies encompass knowledge, skills, and attributes that are relevant for the (new) work environment but can also be useful for students during their studies. For each competency, we show three main themes with underlying behaviors. For competencies where you score above 40%, less effort is required.

Tip: If you’re looking for a different position, consider a role that includes competencies where you score between 40-50%. If you want to develop, analyze behaviors at different levels and integrate this into your development plan.
