Multiple Intelligences

Picture a professional athlete; a musical prodigy; a mathematical genius; and the neighbor who is friendly to everyone.

What do they have in common? Each is extraordinarily talented in an area that helps define his/her persona and professional/educational pursuit. Yet none are equally capable across all of the skill areas.

Executive Function

Executive Function
Think of a person who can focus on a task for hours; recall obscure trivia facts; is always late to everything. These individuals have differing mastery of their Executive Functions. Executive Functions (EFs) are the cognitive processes responsible for cueing, directing, and coordinating one's own perception, emotion, cognition, and action. Effective coordination and control of EFs allows one to take in and process information, plan actions, and execute on those plans. Conversely, ineffective mastery of EFs result in behaviors that lead to difficulties in school and work environments. SEE MORE trending_flat

RIASEC - John Holland and Career Interests

RIASEC

John Holland was Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University and is best known as the creator of the career development model, the Holland Occupational Themes (Holland Codes). Holland suggests that all people fit into one or more personality types: realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional - the RIASEC assessment that is widely used by career counseling professionals. Implicit in the theory is the concept that a person's career needs to reflect a person's personality and preferences in order to have interesting and fulfilling jobs. An "outdoor person" will likely be miserable sitting at a desk on a computer all day.
