Self-Reflection Tresa Reuter

A Brief Summary of my Career Assessments

My Career Cluster Areas

My Key Interest Areas - ASR

  • Artistic people are usually creative, open, inventive, original, perceptive, sensitive, independent and emotional. . They do not like structure and rules, like tasks involving people or physical skills, and are more likely to express their emotions than others. They like to think, organize and understand artistic and cultural areas. They like to work with IDEAS and THINGS.
  • Social people seem to satisfy their needs in teaching or helping situations. They are different than R and I Types because they are drawn more to seek close relationships with other people and are less apt to want to be really intellectual or physical. They like to work with PEOPLE.
  • Realistic people are usually assertive and competitive, and are interested in activities requiring motor coordination, skill and strength. People with a realistic orientation usually prefer to work a problem through by doing something, rather than talking about it, or sitting and thinking about it. They like concrete approaches to problem solving, rather than abstract theory. They tend to be interested in scientific or mechanical rather than cultural and aesthetic areas. They like to work with THINGS.

What I learned about Myself

In my Career Cluster Assessment, I learned that I would most like to work in Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, or Education Training. My interest areas are Artistic, Social and Realistic. My main personality traits are introvert, intuitive, feeling, and judging. Even though I am an introvert, I can still help people. I would just have to work harder. In my Skills Assessment, I found that my skills are basic, and I also have people skills. Both of these skills are very transferable. This gives me more options for what I want to do. My most important values are Family, Influencing People, Work-Life Balance, Honesty and Integrity, and Helping Others.

Through all of these assessments, I learned that I would love to work with people. More narrowly, I would like to work with kids or teenagers. Finally, I think having a job as a High School Teacher would most fit all of my values, skills, personality, and Career preferences.
