    Hi everyone.
    I’ve been researching the evidence for the idea that Career-Personality Fit greatly improves performance and satisfaction.
    I was surprised to see the amount of skepticism surrounding this idea.
    Here is the question I am researching quoting the academic opinions surrounding the issue. I would love it if you can add any insights.

    Is there strong evidence that choosing a career that fits one’s personality or interests is of primary importance in regards to satisfaction or performance ? (For the purpose of this question, personality and interests do NOT include skills or mental ability)
    Here is a list of scholarly statements pertaining to the issue.


    Please add any important studies, insights or points that I missed. Your thoughts and insights are much appreciated.

    I will update the post on Research Gate next week with valuable insights I get. If you prefer that I don’t share your reply or mention your name, please let me know.
