College Funding Advisors: Personality Matched to Career Equals Success
A mismatched major and personality can have dire effects on students’ finances. College funding advisors found through statistics that the cost of dropping out, shifting majors, and not graduating on time is substantially high. Those aiming for a bachelor’s degree lose an average of $46,000 for each additional year it takes to finish their degree. Part of the blame can be attributed to schools and the government. Invalid career tests are used, and students are given incorrect information about their personality using generalized test measures. Some schools even intentionally misdirect students to increase enrollment in a particular program.
