Frequently Asked Questions

WorkFit DX helps you find the job you will love.  It is a tool designed to help individuals identify their needs, values and preferences as they relate to job and career choices. It is designed to help individuals find jobs that match their interests and needs, and provide guidance on how to best approach the job search process, evaluate employers, managers and leadership teams. .

WorkFit DX includes a weighted ranking of an individual’s current position-type preferences, along with a detailed report that explains the best academic research related to each preference. The report also provides concrete advice on how to maximize one’s ability to find a position that gives them what they want and need to love their job, strategies for prepping for an interview, and specific questions to ask during an interview to evaluate the prospective employer, organization, manager and leadership team.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality DX that focuses on identifying an individual’s personality type based on a set of four dichotomies (e.g., extraverted vs. introverted). In contrast, WorkFit DX is designed to identify an individual’s values and preferences as they relate to career choices. One of the key strengths of WorkFitDX is its focus on identifying and measuring specific values and motivations that are directly relevant to satisfaction in the workplace. These values are based on well-established research in industrial-organizational psychology and have been shown to be important predictors of job performance and career success. 
In contrast, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has been heavily criticized for lacking scientific validity and reliability. The MBTI is based on the unproven assumption that personality can be categorized into distinct types and is permanent, and its results are often criticized for being too vague and general to provide meaningful insights into individual differences. Additionally, the MBTI has been shown to have low test-retest reliability, meaning that individuals may receive different results when taking the test multiple times.
WorkFitDX is a better tool for job search than the Myers-Briggs Personality Test for a few reasons. WorkFitDX DX is specifically designed for the workplace and focuses on work-related strengths and preferences, making it a more targeted tool for job seekers. The Myers-Briggs test, on the other hand, was not designed for use in job search and can provide results that are too general or abstract to be of practical use. WorkFitDX DX is designed to provide more actionable insights than the Myers-Briggs test, providing users with specific job-seeking and job-getting recommendations based on your results, which can help you make more informed decisions about their career paths.
As described on their own websites, the Strong Interest Inventory, “helps individuals identify their work personality by exploring their interests,” and FOCUS 2’s explains that, “FOCUS 2 CAREER provides a great starting point for students who are overwhelmed about the choices that are out there.” Both FOCUS 2 and Strong II are particularly useful at helping students sort through occupational categories. This is helpful, for example, in helping students pick a major. 
Supporting this, the primary study cited to support FOCUS 2 found that use of FOCUS 2 among first-year college students, “increased confidence that they can perform various career-related tasks.” That same study also found, however, that “participation in the FOCUS-2 system was associated with an adoption of a more pessimistic style of career decision making for 1st-year college students in our study (i.e., participants believed that career decision making was less under their control and influenced by external factors).” FOCUS 2 brings value by providing useful information on occupational categories. The problem is that without clear mechanisms to actually land desirable positions, they end up feeling that their careers are, “less under their control.”
FOCUS 2 can do a great job in helping people explore occupational categories. It could be described as a smart encyclopedia of occupational information combined with some personality-type self-DXs to help explore possible career categories you might enjoy. This is a valuable service, but as you will see is very different from what we offer. 
The differences between what FOCUS 2, CliftonStrengths , and WorkFitDX do are significant. Research has shown that FOCUS 2 primarily helps students explore career categories and CliftonStrengths helps them, “shape their current role.” 
Students need something in the middle. They need concrete direction and feedback to help them find a position that gives them what they want out of their next job. A smart occupational encyclopedia doesn’t do this. They need specific, applicable, customized insight into what they value and what they means. They also need direction on how to find a position that offers what they value, and some council on how they can negotiate to get that. In essense, they need something like a close friend who knows the ropes of how things really work in the job market. (This is a particular challenge for first-generation college students). 
DiSC is a behavioral DX that categorizes individuals based on four different behavioral styles: dominance, influence, steadiness, and conscientiousness. WorkFit DX, in contrast, is focused specifically on identifying an individual’s values and preferences related to career choices. DiSC DXs can provide individuals with insight into their behavioral style and preferences, which can be useful in personal and professional development. However, DiSC DXs may not be ideal for use in job search because they have been shown to have limited predictive value for job performance and satisfaction and may not necessarily translate into improved career outcomes. While DiSC DXs can be a useful tool in personal and professional relational development, they should be used in conjunction with other factors and DXs when making job search decisions.
Strengths-based approaches (like Gallup’s CliftonStrengths), have been shown to bring good outcomes in helping individuals learn how to study and approach their work, once they are in a role. As they explain on their own website, “One of the most common questions clients ask… is there a specific job I should choose based on my CliftonStrengths Top 5? The short answer is, “No.” This is not a tool that will prescribe the right or wrong job for you. But it… can provide some meaningful insights into how you can shape your current role to better match your talents and improve your effectiveness.”
Luckily there is a good bit of research on CliftonStrengths. Research has shown that a strengths-based approach to development can lead, for instance, to a decrease in the number of students who quit college between their first and second years. It has also been found that when it was used in high schools, a six-week strengths-based program increased academic expectancy, positive academic behaviors, and extrinsic motivation levels. The positive connection between a strengths-based approach role-development and training is backed up by good research. What is not backed up is the use of a strengths-based approach to job matching (this is likely the reason for their clarity in the quote above). 
To this point, one recent study, finding no connection between strengths and career choice, explained, “This lack of discernible interaction between vocational interests and strengths perhaps suggests that strengths can be applied across vocational endeavors, rather than being attracted to particular activities; supporting that strengths are not field specific and can be applied across multiple life roles.” 
Other researchers go on to explain that, “there has only been one study that has examined the effects of identifying strengths and implementing a strengths-based intervention in a career counseling context.. The participants learned about their strengths and were asked to use their strengths in their job search. The strengths-based intervention led to… no increase in career exploration or life satisfaction.” They also mention that, “no such study exists with the college student population.” This is in line with what Gallup themself says. The StrengthsFinder has been shown to help people “shape their current role” (student, employee, manager, etc) once they have one.  It is not built to help you in your job search or selection.
