One of the first things a career coach might ask you to do when you begin working with her on a career change is to take a personality assessment test, for example, such as the testing developed by The Myers & Briggs Foundation. These personality tests are intended to gauge how you interact with other people, how you think and how you work, and then such tests come up with a personality type. In theory, different personality types are best suited to particular jobs, so the test can give you a sense of professions you might look into.
The brief quiz below is a sample of a personality test that you can try. It is not based on data from or affiliated with any formal testing service. Also, the quiz is not meant to be a substitute for any formal testing program.
