Personality tests can help people choose a career, as well as specific jobs, an expert has said.

Laura Hill, who founded Careers in Motion, told Business Insider that tests such as the popular Myers Briggs test could help with job selection, News.com.au reported.

Hill said that the tests she uses to find career directions are based on where someone has a really strong preference.

The Myers-Briggs test is most commonly used in corporate environments, and divides personalities into 16 types according to distinctions between the personality traits of introversion/extroversion, how you absorb information, decision-making and how you work in an organisation.

Hill said the tests gave an indication of what sort of job or company might suit a person.

Individuals who have a really strong preference will tend to relate to certain factors of a job or a company culture that can be very distinctive and can be wonderful when they work in sync and problematic when they don't, she said.

The company culture enables someone to better align themselves with the company, where they're going to feel comfortable and where they're going to fit in, she added.
