A career profile
Jennifer: What were your hobbies as a child?
In two domains, Jon's history suggests a stable personality type of investigative and realistic; he pursued activities in these domains even in childhood. For example, as a child he had a chemistry set, a microscope, and a weather machine. And in high school he enjoyed his chemistry classes and did quite well in them. He has always enjoyed activities that provide him with tangible results. Realistic personality types are also quite shy and modest. Jon stated in his interview that he only had a few close personal friends and that he never put much though into what other people thought about him.

the manager of a pharmacy. This also suggests an enterprising situation. It would appear that Jon grew up in an environment in which he was exposed to artistic, social, investigative, and enterprising, personality types and activities.Jon entered college sure of his journalism major. He did not pursue a science degree because he did not want to be in a laboratory all of the time. Jon didn't appear to do a lot of exploring in college, which may have hindered the fostering of his artistic abilities. Jon also expressed that journalism came easy to him. This statement was unfortunately not delved into or we may have found that other interests, (i.e., science or law-hence the interest in political science
