Your child values relationships with friends and family and has an internal drive to make the world a better place. They like to make-believe themselves in adult roles like parents and teachers. Be patient with their feelings as they care quite a bit what other think of them due to their caring nature.
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 helper personality should learn about teachers, nurses, public health, medical device researcheres, coaches, zoologists and parents- just to name a few.

Help your child find activities that build on their personalty type. For your little helper I recommend activities that involve giving back. For example: volunteer opportunities (check out volunteermatch.org) with people, animals and the earth, get involved with current events through gatherings or writing letters or adopt an animal for them to care for.
