The article presents a study on the relationship between Holland and Jung's personality typologies. The Self-Direct Search (SDS) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) were used to achieve the desired results of the study. The study revealed important relationships between the two typologies and their implications for career counselors. It found that the integration of Holland three-letter code and MBTI scores could increase clients' self-awareness and understanding of preference style.
