The Career Personality Aptitude System (CPAS) is an extremely simple, fast, and effective career aptitude testing tool. Its primary developer, Dr. Tomohachiro Ito of the University of Tokyo, feels that “career aptitude equals ability plus personality.” In other words, when each person thinks about his or her future career development, in addition to assuring personal ability (including professional know-how, professional experience, and professional ability, etc.), strong consideration should also be given to whether the individual’s personality matches the job. If individuals can understand the work for which they are suited, and work hard to develop their potential, then they will be able to find the right place for their talents and create a career that is truly their own.
