It is indeed very tempting to go for a free career test and I have myself tried at least a dozen of them to get more clarity on this dilemma faced by my students. There are two kinds of free online career tests available. The first kinds generally show you half the picture, which is very generic, and ask you to pay to share the remaining details that are personalized. The others are completely free with no conditions attached.

I strongly recommend avoiding the second type because of multiple reasons. The primary reason is that if they are providing something completely free, their existence itself is questionable; unless they are a philanthropic initiative of a generous millionaire. This is seldom the case.  Secondly, they might be using these tests to capture personal details without my consent and that sounds scary to me.

If you are keen on exploring a free test to get a hang of it, go for the ones who are using the free version to showcase their capability. Completely free tests may not serve any purpose. You and your parents should also talk to their representative and raise these doubts to compare various tests.

Trying a free test does not ask for a huge investment of your time and so I don’t see any danger in it. With an open mind and complete clarity on your objective behind taking the test, you can go ahead with the free test you have shortlisted and look at their result with a trusted counsellor. This discussion will help you gauge the usefulness of the test and take an informed decision. Depending on whether it matched your expectation, you can plan your next steps.
