The Strong inventory assigns scores in six categories: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C). My highest-scoring areas were I, A, and C, though R was a very close runner-up. I took this assessment a few times during the time I was administering it and always seemed to fluctuate between IAC and IAR.
So, according to the assessment, these would be my ideal jobs, plus the categories they fulfull:
1. Librarian (A)
2. Musician (A)
3. Technical Writer (AI)
4. Translator (AI)
5. Sociologist (AI)
6. Biologist (IA)
7. Computer Systems Analyst (RCI)
8. Photographer (ARE)
9. Physicist (IRA)
10. Geographer (IA)
I'm glad that Biologist is on there. Several of these jobs seem rather dull, however: I don't think I'd like the repetition inherent to being a librarian or a technical writer. Several of these occupations would be fun to do on an amateur basis (especially music, photography, or even translation) but I don't think I'd want to do them as a job. That might just take all the fun out of it.
A POSTSCRIPT-TYPE UPDATE: Talked to someone in class today (Feb 3) who essentially scored highly in every single category of the assessment. The results suggested that she'd make a good chiropractor or maybe an urban planner, but she didn't find those occupations appropriate. She mentioned that, having taken the Strong before with similar results, career advisors had informed her that her broad range of occupational interests may become a hindrance as she would be unlikely to find one job which sustained all six categories.
