MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)®
MBTI identifies your preferences and provides information about your unique type (there are 16 distinct types).  Understanding your personality type/preferences is the foundation of major exploration and this is a great tool for helping you to understanding who you are and what majors would be a good fit for you.  The MBTI gives you information about how you orient in the world, take in information, make decisions and structure your life.   If you are interested in taking the MBTI visit the Compass Resource Center, 145 Marano Center or send us an email majorexploration@oswego.edu for more information.

Strong Interest Inventory ®
The Strong Interest Inventory is a tool that matches your interests with majors and career fields.  It helps you identify your interests, preferences, and personal styles and provides information you need to select a major and career you can be passionate about.  If you are interested in taking the Strong Interest Inventory visit the Compass Resource Center, 145 Marano Center or email majorexploration@oswego.edu for more information.
