About My Choice My Future
MCMF is based on sound empirical research and has been statistically validated on a sample of more than 4200 students across India. Mapped reliably to occupations in the Indian context, MCMF assesses an individual on twelve personality traits. These twelve are classified into four basic personality traits and eight career-oriented personality traits. The basic personality traits are important irrespective of the career path an individual wishes to pursue. The career-oriented personality traits are related to career domains. Each personality trait is measured by six dimensions.
At the end of the 30-minute assessment, test takers promptly receive an automatically-generated, comprehensive and personalized personality report. PAI connects test takers to its nationwide network of certified MCMF counsellors so that these test takers can receive data-backed career counselling, based on the MCMF personality report, as part of the solution.
