Holland Codes, Career Model,
Games, and Assessments
The Holland Hexagon Model or Holland Codes
is the basis for most of the career inventories used today.
The Holland Codes is a system to classify jobs into job categories, interest clusters, or work personality environments.  In the Holland Model, these categories represent work personalities

The work personalities were Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional.
Assessments using Holland Personality Styles link vocational interests to job families. Assessments use a two or three-letter RIASEC or Holland code

Different assessments provide information on the relationship between job personalities and key characteristics, college majors, hobbies, abilities, and related careers
