General advice misleads, frustrates, and slows professionals in career transition. Personalized guidance should take your values, situation, and goals into consideration. Archetypes are ArcVida’s way of describing several different professional paths.
You should take this assessment when you are looking for your next great career move. If you’re taking it while you’re in college or graduate school – plan to retake it about a month before graduating. If you’re taking this quiz because you’re curious, enjoy quizzes, or a friend asked you to compare your archetype to theirs – then answer the questions as you might have before you started in your current role.
Mindset Tip: Answer the questions based on what you remember and how you feel now, not on how you think you should answer.
