Your child values problem solving and working with ideas. They love learning new things about how the world around them works. You may find your child asks, “why” a lot because they are so curious.
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 thinker personality should learn about chemists, medical researchers, geneticists, data scientists and market researchers.- just to name a few.

Help your child find activities that build on their personalty type. For your little thinker I recommend activities that involve learning something new. For example: science fairs, reading clubs, museums, math clubs, chess clubs, zoo volunteer and space camp.
