I will pay for the following essay Holland’s Theory about Human Nature and Job Seeking. The essay is to be 9 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page.
John Holland has developed a theory that says that the people of a particular person are suited to a particular job. And not just that, but when people having similar personalities work together in a personality suitable environment, it leads to the creation of a very positive, creative and productive relationship and works place.
To understand the essence behind the theory of Vocation and Congruency, we will take a look at the three important components of his theory. They are 1) Personality Types, 2) Environment Types and 3) Holland’s Hexagon. .
Holland’s six Personality Types: .John Holland says that people personality can be divided into six types according to their nature, thinking pattern, likings and behavior patterns. The six personality types are Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional. These types are defined on the basis of their natural inclinations. .Realistic Personality Type: .The name in itself suggests that people who fall under this category of personality type like to be in touch with ‘reality’. Rather than indulging in work that needs thinking or imagining, they enjoy working with tools, machines, plants, animals, mechanical drawings etc. The activities that encourage them to be practical and realistic are the activities that they like involving themselves in. They like to think of themselves as realists who focus on practical ideas. People having this personality type are happy in the job that encourages practicality and realistic approach of thinking. .
Investigative Personality Type: people who fall under this category of personality types like to think, investigate, brainstorm and solve the intricate problems of math and science. Intellectual challenges motivate them a lot and they get pleasure in the methodical, precise and scientific way of thinking. They like to think of themselves as precise and analytical people. They enjoy the jobs that allow them to investigate, think and solve different sorts of problems.
