Dr. John Holland theorized people and work environments can be loosely classified into six different groups, and peoples' personalities are compatible with certain work environments. While people may have interests within the six groups, they will be drawn primarily to two or three groups. The more a person is able to express their personality within a compatible work environment, the higher the likelihood of finding career satisfaction.
