In India, students in school often invest significant time and resources preparing for college admission in premier institutions, without the necessary interest or behavioral inclination in the subject they wish to pursue. The choice of a higher education degree or course is, more often than not, influenced by family, friends and significant others. As a result, students often pursue higher education based on informal advice from others and for subjects of study and subsequent careers that are not aligned to important aspects of their personalities.

The above, in turn, leads to later academic struggles and dissatisfaction with one’s future profession. The end result –

  • Loss of precious time in course correction towards the right career
  • Missed educational and career opportunities
  • Struggles with productivity and performance at work due to low motivation and high stress levels
  • Interpersonal friction in both personal and professional domains
  • Lowered quality of life due to loss of earnings and compromised psychological well being

Choosing a line of higher education and career path by understanding one’s personality traits as related to career leads to a more meaningful and enriching academic experience for the student, and greater likelihood of the education leading to a fulfilling career in the future.

MCMF assesses an individual on twelve personality traits.

These twelve personality traits are classified into four basic personality traits and eight career-oriented personality traits. The basic personality traits are important irrespective of the career path an individual wishes to pursue. Career-oriented personality traits are related to career domains. Each personality trait is measured by six dimensions.

Basic Personality Traits

  • Reliability/responsibility
  • Determination/focus
  • Discipline
  • Independence

Career Oriented Personality Traits

  • Risk taking
  • Adaptability/Versatility
  • Extrovert
  • Creative/Imaginative
  • Compassion/Generosity
  • Communicative/Expressive
  • Analytical
  • Hands-on

When an individual takes the MCMF, they obtain:

  • Insights into where they are placed for the twelve personality traits assessed
  • Information on their top three or four dominant personality traits and strengths
  • Information on career paths that match the individual’s personality and strengths
  • Secondary and higher secondary school students
  • Undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • Working professionals and those who wish to change to more suitable careers
