What is Your Passion? Find Out! Living It Is the Key to Success

Take our career quiz and see which careers and hobbies you were meant to pursue

There is a passion inside all of us -- a fire that keeps us going despite barriers and challenges, a fire that makes everything seem awesome and worth it, a fire that makes us achieve our unique potential. Problem is, many of us don’t know what that passion is and live lives that are not as fulfilling as they can be. And when we aren’t doing what we really want to do, we get cranky, tired, moody -- and even depressed. It’s time to stop. Life is too short! So how do you know what your real passion is? Take this quiz to figure it out. Maybe you can’t use your passion at work and your real-life responsibilities make a career change impossible. That doesn’t mean you can’t find passion and satisfaction in your life outside of work!

Based on a scientific assessment called the Striving Styles Personality System, we all have the fire of four passions burning within us. But each of us has a different passion that burns stronger than the rest. The trick is identifying that one passion. Once you do, it’ll be much easier to grow, develop and realize your potential. Are you ready?

Instructions: Read each of the following statements, ask yourself how true it is for you by writing down the appropriate number next to it. If your first thought when rating a statement is “it depends”, think about how you would react on an average day. The more honest you are, the more accurate your result will be and the more likely you’ll be to find that true passion.

Add up the numbers for each section. Th highest score will determine what type of passion you have within you.

If you have a tie, read through the description of both passions, and determine which one you think sounds most like you, rather than what you would do in a certain situation. Sometimes we do things to please others or because we think it’s what people expect of us; when you’re looking at your passion, make sure you’re considering what is most exciting to you, rather than what you think will be most exciting to others or will gain you popularity. Be as honest with yourself as you can be; after all, it’s your passion! Now take this quiz so you can find it!
