Aptitude Testing and Research since 1922

There are half a million careers in the world.
How do you find yours?

Just like scientists use data to make predictions, aptitude testing can help you predict the types of careers you’ll thrive in. Our work is rooted in the scientific study of human abilities and the mission of our founder, Johnson O’Connor, who believed that everyone has natural talents that should be nurtured and used. For over 80 years, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people understand their innate potential and choose careers that fit how their minds like to work, naturally.

 “The individual who knows his own aptitudes, and their relative strengths, chooses more intelligently among the world's host of opportunities.” ~Johnson O’Connor

What are Aptitudes?

What are Aptitudes?

Aptitudes are natural talents for doing certain kinds of things quickly and easily. We measure 19 different aptitudes ranging from reasoning abilities to musical talents to workplace personality. These abilities aren’t related to what you’ve learned in school or your interests, which can change over time. Aptitudes are talents you’re born with, so you can use your test results to make decisions throughout your career. Learn more about aptitudes

Our Tests are Different.

Our Tests are Different

Personality tests and interest questionnaires reflect how you feel about yourself at that moment in time. Our tests don’t consist of answering subjective questions or filling out forms, and they’re not influenced by factors like past experiences or schooling. We provide objective data about how your mind likes to work and what careers might best match your combination of abilities. More about JOC testing

How will Aptitude Testing Help Me Choose a Career?

Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is one of the most important aspects of career planning. Aptitude testing provides objective data about the areas you’re likely to succeed in and the ones you might want to avoid. People tend to be more satisfied and successful in occupations that use their aptitudes.

The Testing Experience

The Testing Experience

Our tests aren’t like school tests but are more like puzzles or games. About half of our tests are given individually by a trained test administrator; the rest are given using audio-visual equipment. There are no “good” or “bad” scores on our tests, just objective measurements of how naturally a task comes to you. More on the testing experience

 As a nonprofit, our focus is on our continuing research and you, our clients. Our testing takes place in-person, not over a computer. We never sell or share your data, and you’ll always have the option to discuss your results with a trained aptitude consultant, even years after you take the tests.
