Aptitudes

The Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation gives a standardized test of aptitudes and general knowledge. With this insight, a career path is suggested which suits the way we are innately wired.

Summary: A person with an objective personality is drawn toward working with and through other people, while a person with spatial ability, the engineering trait, enjoys working with things. These two traits tend to pull in opposite directions. The combination, therefore of an objective personality and spatial ability strongly suggests work that would provide expression of both of these traits.
