UNF Academic Majors Listed With Holland Codes

 

The Holland Code or the Holland Occupational Themes (RIASEC), is a theory of careers and vocational choice based upon personality types. It was developed by the psychologist John L. Holland.  Each letter or code stands for a particular "type": 

 

  • Realistic-"Doers"- People who prefer to work with things, machines, tools, plants, or animals; like to be outdoors; have athletic ability 
  • Investigative-"Thinkers"- People who like to observe, investigate, analyze, evaluate, and solve problems 
  • Artistic-"Creators"- People who are artistic, like unstructured situations, and like using their imagination and creativity
  • Social-"Helpers"- People who like to work with people to enlighten, inform, help, teach, or cure them; possess excellent verbal skills
  • Enterprising-"Persuaders"- People who like to work with people influencing, persuading, leading or managing to achieve goals or economic gain
  • Conventional- "Organizers"- People who like to work with data, have clerical and numerical skills; very detailed oriented; follow others' instructions   

Most people don’t fall under just one Holland Code, but several. As a result, most aptitude tests that measure the Holland Codes return an individual’s top three personality types. This is helpful because most people thrive at their career when able to bring a blend of personality traits.
