10 awesome free career self-assessment tools on the Internet | Monster.com
Myers-Briggs

One of the most well-known assessments, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator results in a four-letter “type”—INFP or ESFJ, for example. The test is meant to identify basic preferences for each of four dichotomies (such as introvert and extrovert) and describes 16 distinctive personality traits.

You’ll have to pay $50 to take the real test, but there are plenty of imitators on the Internet.

Keirsey Temperament Sorter

This personality assessment is based on Keirsey Temperament Theory, which divides people into four “temperaments:” guardian, idealist, rational and artisan. The assessment measures how people communicate and what their actions tend to be. Yes, the test is 71 questions long; no one said getting to your emotional center would be quick.

MyPlan.com

This assessment can help you identify your motivations and what’s really important to you in your career. By ranking different aspects of work, the results can encourage you to look at jobs or industries you may not have considered before.

You’ll walk away from this test with a list of 739 jobs rank-ordered based on how well they suit your style. Not bad, huh?

Big Five

Big Five personality assessments divide people into five personality traits: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. The assessment identifies a preference out of the five and can help you identify learning styles as well as work preferences.

This test will also make you laugh a little along the way. Try answering “I have a rich vocabulary” or “I worry about things” with a straight face.

16personalities

This personality assessment starts with Myers-Briggs dichotomies and adds archetypes from Jungian theory as well as some from the Big Five. Which is psychobabbly way of saying you’ll learn whether you’re an introvert or extrovert if you take this test— and at the end, you’ll be labeled with one of 16 personality types with cool names like “Mediator,” “Commander” and “Defender.” Most importantly, the test promises to take less than 12 minutes.

iSeek “Clusters”

This survey lets you rate activities you enjoy, your personal qualities and school subjects you like. Then you can see which career clusters are a match for your interests. And this is another quick one, clocking in at 5 to 10 minutes.

MyNextMove

This tool uses information from O*Net information, , which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, to help determine your interests as they relate to work. Unlike the other tests, this one asks you how to rate how much you’d enjoy performing very specific work tasks like “building kitchen cabinets,” “laying brick” and “buying and selling stocks and bonds.” It’s really nicely color-coded as well. Hang in there, this one is 60 questions.

MAPP Test

More than 8 million people around the world have taken this assessment at Assessment.com. “The reason people take the MAPP is to find their way in life,” he says. It tells you what you love to do and what you don’t love to do. It also uses the O*Net job list to identify which jobs might be good fits.

You’ll have to fork over $90 for their “starter package,” in which you’ll see your top 20 general career matches. Their “executive package” costs $149.95 where you’ll get a 30-page assessment and ranked matching to 900 careers. But if you just want to try it for free, you’ll be matched with five potential careers.

Holland Code

This assessment examines your suitability with different careers based on six occupational themes: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional. The test identifies your top interest area and how it compares to the other areas, and what this means for your career interests.

Sorry in advance, but this test clocks in at 20 minutes, with a whopping 87 questions.

PI Behavioral Assessment

The Predictive Index predicts primary personality characteristics that describe, explain and predict day-to-day workplace behaviors, says Greg Barnett, a Boston-based industrial and organizational psychologist who is responsible for setting and executing the scientific agenda for the Predictive Index. This rigorously tested study looks at your strongest workplace behaviors and determines your management and influence styles.

Idris | A Language with Dependent Types
Idris is a general purpose pure functional programming language with dependent types. Dependent types allow types to be predicated on values, meaning that some aspects of a program’s behaviour can be specified precisely in the type. It is compiled, with eager evaluation. Its features are influenced by Haskell and ML, and include:

Full dependent types with dependent pattern matching
Simple foreign function interface (to C)
Compiler-supported interactive editing: the compiler helps you write code using the types
where clauses, with rule, simple case expressions, pattern matching let and lambda bindings
Dependent records with projection and update
Interfaces (similar to type classes in Haskell)
Type-driven overloading resolution
do notation and idiom brackets
Indentation significant syntax
Extensible syntax
Cumulative universes
Totality checking
Hugs style interactive environment

Type-Safe, Functional Web Development | The Haste Compiler
What is Haste?

Haste is an implementation of the Haskell programming language geared towards web applications. Haste is based on the de facto standard GHC compiler, which means that it supports the full Haskell language, including GHC extensions and produces highly optimized code but comes with an extended set of standard libraries. Haste support modern web technologies such as WebSockets, LocalStorage, Canvas, etc. out of the box. In addition, Haste comes prepackaged with facilities for preemptive multitasking, working with binary data and other niceties.

A Haste program can be compiled into a single JavaScript file, much like traditional browser-side programs, or into a JavaScript file and a server-side binary, with strongly typed communication between the two. In essence, Haste lets you write your client-server web application as a single, type-safe program, rather than two separate programs that just happen to talk to each other over some web API as is traditional.

You don’t need to throw away all of your old code to start using Haste. In addition to the standard Haskell FFI, Haste provides its own flexible mechanism for easy Haskell-JavaScript integration, using magic typing tricks to allow data of any type to be used by both Haskell and JavaScript code with minimal effort.

Haste programs are compact. While a certain increase in code size over hand-rolled JavaScript is unavoidable, an optimized but uncompressed Haste program is normally less than 3x the size of an equivalent hand-written program and the compiler takes special care to produce minifiable code, making the latency penalty of using Haste minimal.

Haste is free software under the three-clause BSD license. If your favorite feature is not yet implemented, why not submit a patch? You might also want to join the Haste mailing list or our IRC channel #haskell-haste @ Freenode.

How I Start.
How I Start is a mix between a collection of development tutorials and The Setup. The purpose is to both fill a gap in tutorials and give a peek at how some of the top developers do their work.

Often tutorials and books are overly generic, leaving it up to the reader to wade through all the tools and styles available to a language on their own. These articles are meant for a user who is comfortable with a language in its REPL (if available) or building individual modules, but may not be comfortable taking the step to producing an application or library that is ready to be consumed by others or deployed to production.
