Your child values tangible activities over ideas or people. They enjoy working with their hands and making physical things. Try to be patient when your child shows a passion for taking your things apart to learn how they work.
It is great that you took the time to take this quiz.
Now, get your child involved in understanding their own personality.
Maybe even retake it with them to see if you get the same result. Have a conversation about how different personalities tend to be attracted to different types of jobs.
Exposure - Help them find jobs and role models that they can relate to.
I wrote the book “Dream It and Do It - 100 Career Role Models for Kids” in order to help kids do this. Each story is a modern, real-world role model who breathes life into the career they are teaching.
In this book I outline which personality types each career path is well suited for. Each career has both a primary and a secondary personality type, so your child is guaranteed to find dozens of role models they can look up to that are just like them. For example, a do'er personality should learn about builders, engineers, product developers, and welders- just to name a few. Learn more about "Dream It and Do It- Career Role Models" HERE.
Help your child find activities that build on their personalty type. For your little do'er I recommend activities that involve working with their hands. For example: Robotics, Engineering, Go Karts, Planting a garden, Building a Treehouse, Legos etc.
