Hi! This is Meghan Lynn Allen for About.com, and today we'll discuss tips for choosing a major.When choosing a college major, be sure to take into account your own personality traits. That will help inform your own career choices. Studies show that the top major may be accounting, but does that fit your personality? Are you investigative or are you something else?Investigative personality types like to get to the bottom of things. They like to provide solutions and find answers. The investigative personality type may like to work individual, solo, and not as part of a larger group. They're analytical, curious, original. They like exploring and challenging beliefs - even long held beliefs. They like words like proof or evidence. If you feel like you are an investigative personality, try a major like science, nursing, or something in a medical field - or computers, engineering, or something like accounting.Perhaps you're someone who's more social, and those people make great teachers. They're friendly, outgoing, warm and caring - and they're not afraid to get up in front of a crowd. They use their social skills to influence others. Possible degree programs may be history, psychology, anthropology, teaching, nursing, coaching or ministry.Perhaps you're someone who likes to live by their own rules, or no rules at all. Then you might fall into the artistic category. You have hobbies like music, painting, drawing or theater, and you might enjoying working with words and colors. They often have a few close friends instead of dozens of friends, and prefer environments that are creative, always trying out new ideas and new things. Some possible majors might be art, drama, music, literature, interior decorating or graphic design.
This is just a sample of matching personalities to college majors. If you're trying to find your own personality or college major, look online and do some research. Take some personality quizzes. You can even look at About.com's own Homework and Study Tips site.
