Awesome INFP Career Research Tool Using Neuroscience and Games

I stumbled across this amazing career research tool today.

You play games and it learns about you and then tells you what career you’d be best suited for and then gives you companies that want what you’ve got.

Watch this video to see what it’s all about and then scroll down to see my results.

Now look at this.


That’s what I’ve been working toward for a long-damn time! It KNOWS ME!!!

So if you’re interested in checking it out, I think it took me about an hour to get through the required games, click here (this is not an affiliate link, I just think it’s cool as hell and super useful for INFPs who tend to struggle with careers).

When you’re done, come back to this page and leave a comment with the top 3 results. I’m DYING to find out what other INFPs end up with.

Have fun!

  1. Data Science 94%
    Project Management 91%
    Hedge Fund 87%

    I have had several careers but currently work as a project manager and think it a fairly good fit so the Pymetrics result is encouraging.

  2. My top three were
    Human Resources & Recruiting 99%
    Writing 97%
    Investment Management 96%

    I was not as much surprised by my top three as a I was by my top 10 and my lower 10 , it seemed flipped based on other INFP and personality tests that I have taken. Especially when I saw sales in my top 4 and customer service in my bottom 10. I will have to ask the game designers about this one.

  3. My top 3:
    Business Development 99%
    STEM Research 98%
    Corporate Finance 95%

    – My current area of expertise falls into IT and Services which came back at 69% or Consulting which came back at 44%.
    – I got 6 over 90% (others were: QA Engineering 95%, Investment Management 91% , Strategic Planning 90%)

  4. Law (WHAT?!!!)
    Systems Engineering
    Customer Service Representative

    But I have no interest in any of these. Other career tests have led me to doing HR coordinator, facilitators, psychiatrists…

  5. UX Design 96%
    Project Management 88%
    Corporate Finance????? 87%

    I have the least interest in the last one so I’ll go with the first two.

  6. Marketing 92%
    Entrepreneur 74%
    Hedge Fund 56%

    Thanks for linking to Pymetrics. I came across their website a year ago but forgot about it. I just finished a MBA after working in outdoor non-profits for all my twenties and have been struggling with how to bring it all together. Now I know I should start my own hedge fund with MBA friends who are more naturally quanty while I focus on the marketing.

  7. I got the same as Mike! 🙂 But in a different order, and with significantly lower percentages across the board: 56% product development, 56% project management; 52% entrepreneur.

    I’m a terrible match for my current job: accounting. That makes tons of sense (although there are elements I love — and in fact, what doesn’t work for me relates more to larger organizational dynamics than to accounting itself…); I happen to be trying to find something else at the moment.

    I’m also not surprised that I barely get across the 50% mark for anything, frankly… The past work I’ve found the most fulfilling (in terms of cognitive function on a daily basis; other dynamics aside) has involved elements of both product development and project management.

    And at the same time, my favorite element of those jobs was the initial creation of ideas (focused on developing Intranet features); this matches my StrenghtsFinder results, where Ideation is one of my biggest strengths.

    So my Pymetrics results are encouraging… I’d like it if my match percentages were a little higher, but they seem to indicate that I’m probably on the right track in currently looking for work doing medium-scale knowledge management projects with technical components.

    Thanks for sharing, Mike!
