Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 11, 2006
On EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com), an online personality test resource, users can take EQ SQ personality quizzes to identify their brain type--empathizing or systemizing. For empathizers, who have the "drive to identify and react appropriately to the way another person is feeling," a counseling career may be a top career choice.
EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com) features personality quizzes developed by Sally Wheelwright and Simon Baron-Cohen based on his EQ SQ Theory of male versus female brain types. Users receive an empathizing quotient (EQ)--whether they have people skills--and a systemizing quotient (SQ)--whether they have systems skills. Visitors can then use the tools and other resources on EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com) to help them explore appropriate career options based on their EQ SQ results.
Katrina Boydon, EQSQ.com columnist, is quick to point out that, "While there is currently no concrete evidence that supports using the results of the EQ SQ personality tests to make a career choice, it makes sense that individuals with a higher EQ may find the greatest success and satisfaction in careers that require excellent communication and people skills."
In her testimony to the National Blueprint for the States Policy Panel, Cynthia Moreno Tuohy, Executive Director of NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, urged federal and state governments to "concentrate great amounts of energy on recruiting bright, young, energetic people to pursue a career in addiction counseling." The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts that the overall employment for counselors is expected to grow faster than average through 2014, with substance abuse counselors, in particular, experiencing excellent prospects.
A career as a substance abuse counselor may be a good choice for an empathizer, according to EQ SQ Theory information on EQSQ.com (http://www.eqsq.com), an online personality test resource. Web site users can take the EQ SQ personality quizzes to identify their brain type--empathizing or systemizing--and use other EQ SQ-related resources and tools to identify appropriate career choices.
