Deciding what to study at a university and choosing a career path while you are still a school student can be a complicated and overwhelming experience.
It's important to listen to your own feelings and take time to explore what you are genuinely interested in, not allowing other people's opinions, stereotypes and preconceptions to influence you or sway your decisions. What might be helpful at this point is to take a career test to better understand your own personality type and a whole variety of options that exist for you out there.
Here's our top choice of free career tests and quizzes:
Keirsey Temperament Aptitude Sorter
The Keirsey Temperament Sorter allows you to discover your temperament style based on the typology developed by a psychologist Dr. David Keirsey. This test defines four basic temperaments (the Artisan, the Guardian, the Idealist, and the Rational) and helps get a better idea of which professions/pursuits better suit your particular personality.
CareerExplorer Career Test
CareerExplorer Career Test isn't your ordinary career quiz. It uses advanced machine learning, psychometrics, and career satisfaction data to determine one’s personality type as accurately as possible and match it with some of more than 1500 careers.

This American test (it’s sponsored by the U.S. government’s Department of Labour) is another helpful tool that allows you to find out which career options (it divides work-related interests and activities into categories: realistic, investigative, social, enterprising, conventional, and artistic) are better suited to things that you are interested in most.
