Why use Find My Spark or other Myer-Briggs type inventories?
A personality assessment such as the Find My Spark ™ college survey is an excellent method for helping students discover their better developed personality characteristics and preferred learning style. These are usually more stable and lasting than interests, which are fluid and often change over time. When advising students about college selection, advisors already take into consideration students’ academic abilities, interests and extra-curricular activities. In addition, a personality assessment can help the advisor and the student choose good schools, majors and careers that fit a student’s natural tendencies. By knowing the student’s personality and by understanding what type of experience colleges offer, advisors will be able to discern how a student likes to be helped and what type of college the student would likely prefer.
Find My Spark results allow you to use GuidedSearch to find colleges that match a specific College Style.
