The Holland Code and How to Use It


The World of Work Initiative heavily features and promotes the Holland Codes. Learn more about the Holland Codes in this article from Dawn Rosenberg McKay: A Holland Code is a three letter code that is made up of an individual's three dominant personality types out of six possible choices, according to a theory developed by Dr. John Holland, a psychologist. The six types Holland identified are collectively referred to as RIASEC, the initials standing for the first letter of each of the following personality types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional.
