Discovery One: Recall Your Past Experiences
(Approx 15-20 minutes)
Research and over 30 years of assessment experience have shown that your past enjoyable experiences reveal valuable information about your Natural Talents. The consistent patterns of behavior in these enjoyed experiences have been found to be more accurate than patterns from your occupational job duties. College education and job experience have a minor influence on the discovery of your Natural Talents.
Use the list below to help you recall enjoyable past experiences and activities from your freshman year in high school to the present. Check each activity you experienced and enjoyed. You may type in other activities you enjoyed but are not listed, as well as enjoyable work experiences. Scroll down to read the entire list.
On the next screen, you will be asked to reduce your list to your top 10 enjoyed experiences.
For the highest level of validity your high school and college years should have been in the U.S. or Canada. Results are marginally valid for non-native English speaking students or adults who have not lived in the US/Canada for their high school years and beyond.
