I have already answered this question but I wish to share something more on this.

I have spent nearly 20 years into career counselling. I have gone through many psychometric tests.

But I was very much impressed by the RAISEC personality type test.

But I found a very dangerous kind of things while I conducted tests on hundreds of students. Most of the students do not understand the words correctly. So, they interpret according to their own understanding.

As for example, the meaning of love may be different for male and female. In fact meaning of love maybe having many meanings , many responses.

If you want to know the values of 10 standard student who is interested to find out the best career it will be very difficult because they really do not know what that values  are.

It is better to play with them the psychometric games, that is also known as the experiential games, that help them to know themselves better n it is very easy for career counselor to you know them better and predict about their future career.

As for example there is a very nice game call ringtones game that help them to know their risk taking abilities. Then you can easily say about their motivations..

Is he a career motivated are relationship motivated for power motivated...

So I want to create online games so we can identify them early and we can understand more about their values and motivations.

I am waiting for the psychologist in the technologist so I can work with them to create a very effective psychometric tests that accurately define everyone so he can choose the most accurate career top most career for them in sign out in the world

There are many psychometric theories used in career assessment.

But one of the theory that interest me the most is  called Holland personality type theory.

According to this theory there are six type of personalities that like to work in six type of different environments.

  1. Realistic personality: if you like to work at physical level with your physical skills like mechanical skills or agricultural related things. Hard skills then you are realistic by nature.
  2. Artistic personality: if you love to create beautiful things around you ?? you are artistic personality. There are many careers related with that.
  3. Investigative personality: if you are curious by nature you are investigative personality. You may be scientist or reporter also.
  4. Social personality: if you love to work with people for human services, you are social by nature, then you love to work with groups. As for example teacher.
  5. Enterprising personality: if you you have mission or vision in your life,you can influence people and create groups around you, then you can lead a business successfully. These are the qualities of enterprising personalities
  6. Conventional personality: if you likew to work in  structured ,routine environment, you might be suitable for office work.

I love to take personality test but that is not enough. I also like to take skill test. These tests are available with edumilestones company. So I prefer to take that tests.

There are other test also that I love to connect. I offer self Discovery program to choose the best career for you. That course also offer you other benefits like how to choose business partner and how to choose life partner with how to choose right career.

Several theories have been used to design psychometric tests used for career guidance. And all the theories are widely accepted: one is Holland theory, another is Jung's theory of personality types. Another common theory is Big five personality traits. So it is not uncommon to see different types of tests being used in different places.
