Does the state in which you live have an effect on your personality? You might be surprised at this study.
Every job seeker is born with certain personality traits, but new data from the infographic below — compiled by Truity Psychometrics, a provider of online personality and career assessments and developer of the TypeFinder® personality type assessment — suggests that the state they live in may have an influence on how those traits develop.
If you’re a job seeker looking for a company with fellow abstract thinkers or a recruiter searching for extraverted or competitive candidates, look no further. This infographic highlights the top five states for each of the five dimensions of personality type, and sorts each state into one of five personality clusters.
Some interesting points include:
- “Producers,” hardworking, no-nonsense job seekers who enjoy the company of others, can be found in states like Florida, Arizona, Utah, DC and New Jersey.
- If you’re looking for brash, tough-minded job seekers who are ready for a challenge and enjoy a good debate, the “Critics” can be found in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
- Alaska, New York and California are home to “The Open Minds,” job seekers who are interested in arts, literature, the sciences, and other intellectual activities.
