Discover the Environments Best for You

DirectionFinder will determine the type of work environment that is best for you: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, or Conventional.

"Work" is not limited to career only, but can also mean paid and unpaid jobs, volunteering, sports, hobbies, or encore careers.

The results can be used to determine a career, education, or volunteer path where you will thrive.

What is possible for you?

Discover Your Ability to Reach Goals

DirectionFinder measures your ability to take action in order to reach your goals, specifically in times of stress or uncertainty.

You'll learn how capable you are in taking productive action towards reaching your goals, and will get specific tips, tailored to you, to improve your ability.

Are you living authentically?

Discover if You Are Out of Alignment

DirectionFinder measures two types of motives, your Surface Motives and your Deep Motives. Surface Motives are explicit, meaning they live in your conscious mind close to the surface. Deep Motives are implicit, meaning they live in your subconscious mind and are mostly hidden.

Since Surface Motives are closer to the surface, they are more likely to be influenced by your environment, your relationships, or the messages you received as a child. This means it is possible to say you want or need things that you don't really want.

On the other hand, Deep Motives are pure, they are the authentic you, what you truly want and need to be motivated and fulfilled.

DirectionFinder compares your Deep Motive scores with your Surface Motive score to determine if you are out of alignment.
