This questionnaire is based on Tamara Erickson's "archetypes of work-related passions" from her book Plugged In: The Generation Y Guide to Thriving at Work (Harvard Business Press: 2008). I have changed some of the questions and renamed her personality categories.
The quiz should only take you about five minutes. Answer each of the questions below and when you click the 'Submit' button, you'll see your score and links to the kinds of organizations where you'll fit in. You can only choose one answer for each question - pick the answer which best matches your goals. With experience or age, your working goals may change, so answer the questions on how you feel now.
