Quick question: When was the last time you took a personality test—and took the results seriously? It’s easy to think that these tests are sort of like horoscopes in the back of magazines (really vague compliments that could fit into anyone’s life), but the results could actually make a huge difference in your career.

Interested in seeing what the famed Myers-Briggs test says about you? Though the official test costs money, you can find similar free versions of it (like this one) online to see what your strengths in the office are and what you need to work on.
