When the pieces don’t seem to fit...The Case of "Rosie R"

Bookmark and Share

What do you do when you encounter inconsistent Strong assessment results during an interpretation? This case study (part 3 of 4 in our series of case studies focused on strategies for assessment interpretation using the Strong and MBTI® Combined Career Report written by Judith Grutter) focuses on Rosie R., an adult re-entry university student who is considering a career change.

For the past six years, Rosie has been working in Human Resources for a large company that manufactures agricultural equipment. She is currently realizing that her interests have shifted in the following three areas:

• Continuing in human resources with an emphasis on training and development
• Pursuing a teaching credential or perhaps moving toward educational administration
• Attending law school with a focus on family law policy development

She decides to sign up for a career exploration class where she is prompted to take the Strong Interest Inventory® assessment. The instructor then finds some interesting results. Click here to read the complete case study.
