Marta liked flowers. There were lots of flowers in her backyard,and she delighted in looking at the beautiful colours. One day she cut a few flowers to an arrangement for the dinner table. Her family liked the arrangement so much that they encouraged her to make more. She cut pictures of arrangements she liked out of magazines. She read books from the library on flower arranging that her parents’friends would ask her to make arrangements for birthday and anniversary parties. Almost without knowing it, Marta had a hobby__and even some jobs.
Thinking About the Case Study
1. Could Marta’s hobby lead to a career? What type of jobs could she do?
2. Is this the type of career that requires a college education?
Which interests you the most__people, data, or things? Which are you most confortable with? Many people strongly prefer one of the three.
People who enjoy other people usually get along well with others. They make friends more easily. They enjoy solving “people problems.”
Those most interested in data like to collect information such as baseball scores or famous dates in history. They would rather work a math problem or read a book about space travel than go to a party.
People who are interested most in things usually like to work with their hands. They like to make things or fix things. They might like doing jigsaw puzzles or working on computers better than reading a book or meeting new people.
Are you usually more interested in people,data, or things?
Pingbacks are allow and comments also.
How do you spend free time? Do you find yourself drawn toward some things more than others?
Your interests are the things you enjoy doing. They are the things you’re curious about and like to spend time thinking about.
Some common interests are
*different countries and cultures
*how cars are made
*how sports are played
*how human beings think and act
Your interests influence the decisions you make. You choose the movie or book that sounds most interesting. You often choose friends who have the same interests you have. Your interests will also influence your career choice.
You need to identify your interests. Think about how you spend your leisure time and the things you talk about with your friends. Think about the TV programs you watch,the classes you choose to take,and the books or magazine articles you read. Try to identify as many interests as possible. Even romantic daydreams can give you clues. Do you dream about being an astronaut,a movie star,or a famous explorer?
Make a list of your interests. Then you can look over your list and decide which interests are really important to you and which one are less important. Thinking about the things you do in the following categories will help you identify your strongest interests.
