How the Strong works
The Strong takes a comprehensive inventory of your interests: activities you like to do, subjects you like to study, and places you like to be. With this information, the Strong is able to create a detailed profile of your interests and suggest careers that will suit you.
The Strong was developed through extensive scientific research with people in various careers. The developers of the Strong identified key factors that can predict what type of job a person will choose and how satisfied they will be. When you take the Strong, we measure your responses against these key factors to give you a practical, real-world evaluation of your top careers.
When you receive your Strong report (see a PDF sample), you'll find your top interest areas, best career fields, and your rankings for over 200 occupations—all based on data from the real world of work.
Who the Strong can help
The Strong can be taken by anyone age 14 and up. People take the Strong at all stages of life: planning for college, choosing a first job, changing careers, and even planning for a satisfying retirement.
Because the Strong asks simple, practical questions about what you like to do, it works even for people without much work experience, and it can suggest career fields you may never have thought of.
If you're interested in discovering a career that taps your true interests, the Strong can help.

Q. I'm making an important career decision and want to be sure I'm getting a complete evaluation. Is the Strong the best assessment for me?
The Strong is great on its own, but it's even better when paired with the Myers Briggs Type Indicator personality inventory. When you take the Strong and the Myers Briggs together, you get a comprehensive evaluation of both your interests and the personality factors that affect your career path.
When making an important career choice, it's important to have a complete evaluation of all the factors that influence your career aptitude. While the Strong assesses you from a practical, task-based perspective, the MBTI takes a deeper look at your core personality traits, and helps you map those personality traits to careers that take advantage of your natural talents.
If you are at a critical point in your career path, we recommend taking the Strong and MBTI combination package for the most comprehensive look at your options.
