Discovering Career Test ( DCT )

‘Emotional Backing’ more likely to get you success in career…
 

Choosing a career path and later getting success in that chosen career has always been linked to the “Intelligence Quotient (IQ)” of a candidate and has attained importance over the years. More high the IQ, more is a person successful – has been the thought trend among students and parents. (In our experience we have seen students crying and parents depressed just because the IQ Test result was not good as expected… this is dangerous!)

BUT, IQ alone does not work, but the hidden part here which goes unnoticed; unrecognised and actually contributes tremendously to the success in career or life is the “Emotional Quotient (EQ)”. If EQ gets combined with IQ, it can work wonders for a person.

If we have to differentiate between Intelligence power and Emotional power here, then we would say, “if the ability to remember, recollect, reproduce a particular thing or thought is a part of intelligence power; then liking, interest, passion, curiosity, eagerness, seriousness, sincerity towards that particular thing or thought is a part of emotional power”. Intelligence Quotient measures an individual’s intellectual / mental capability where as Emotional Quotient measures an individual’s emotional connect (liking, interest, passion, sincerity, seriousness) to a thing or thought or path.

For being successful, getting emotionally connected to that particular chosen field is very important. According to me the contribution of EQ and IQ in a person’s success (career and life) is in the proportion of 80:20.


“Being trained means having the requisite IQ, but being educated means having the requisite EQ”.

Your brain may be ready, but is your heart also ready to choose a particular course, profession? - is the question all students and parents should ask!
 

DISCOVERING CAREERS TEST (DCT)

DCT is aimed at knowing the real ‘skills’, ‘competencies’ through which one can achieve ‘excellence’.

We are proud that many career aspirants have been successful through this unique counselling Test called as ‘Discovering Careers Test (DCT)’ designed by Discovering Careers.


DCT ensures that the ‘real’ and ‘emotional’ side of the career aspirant is considered than just giving undue importance to IQ score.
