After the test, I wondered what and how much personal information would come to light. The questions are structured in Personal Talent Explorer so that it is impossible to influence the results. At the evaluation, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of accurate information that emerged. My personal report principally highlighted my strengths and talents. My talents are well suited to my current fields of study (Law and Business Studies). I think everyone at secondary school should do this test because it’s impossible to choose a career for the rest of your life given that there are so many options. At Personal Talent Explorer, they look at what you are good at and you’re encouraged to do what you like doing. Ultimately, I also think that’s the most important thing.Ido
