Typology of professions.

The person — the person — all professions connected with education, service, training of people, communication with them. All pedagogical and medical professions, professions of a services sector and others belong to this group.

The person — the nature — all professions connected with studying, protection and nature transformation. Such professions belong to this group as: veterinarian, gardener, agronomist, ecologist and others.

The person — a sign — all professions, knitted with creation and use of sign systems (digital, alphabetic, musical). Translators of art and technical texts, analytics, financiers and others treat this group.

Feature of application of this classification consists presently in that, simple professions with one object of work consign to the past and they are succeeded by professions with several objects of work, or with difficult object of work. For example, the profession of the landscape designer at the same time belongs both to type of people nature and to type of people - an artistic image.

The person — the person

Here the main, leading object of the labor - people.

Professions: doctor, teacher, psychologist, hairdresser, guide, manager, head of art collective, etc.

Like professions it is possible to distinguish from it:

the professions connected with training and education of people, the organization of children's collectives;

the professions connected with production management, the management of people, collectives;

the professions connected with consumer, trade services;

the professions connected with information service;

the professions connected with information and art service of people and the management of art collectives;

the professions connected with medical care.

For successful work by professions of this type it is necessary to learn to establish and keep in touch with people, to understand people, to understand their features, and also to seize knowledge in the corresponding area of production, science, art.

The short list of qualities which are very important in work:

steady good mood in the course of work with people,

need for communication,

ability to understand intentions, thoughts, moods of people,

ability quickly to understand relationship of people,

ability to find a common language with different people.

The person — the technician

Here the main, leading object of the labor - technical objects (cars, mechanisms), materials, types of energy.

Professions: drifter, joiner, technician-metallurgist, mechanical engineer, architect, construction electrician, radio mechanic, builder, collector of computers, telecommunications specialist, etc.

Certainly, work of workers here is directed not only on equipment, but nevertheless a leading subject of professional attention - area of technical objects and their properties.

Like "people technicians" it is possible to distinguish from professions:

professions on production, processing of soil, rocks;

professions on processing and use of nonmetallic industrial materials, products, semi-finished products.

professions on production and processings of metal, mechanical assembly, to installation of cars, devices;

professions on repair, adjustment, service of technological machines, installations, vehicles;

professions on installation, repair of buildings, constructions, designs;

professions on assembly, installation of electric equipment, devices, devices;

professions on repair, adjustment, service of electric equipment, devices, devices;

the professions connected with application of lifting, vehicles, management of them;

professions on processing of products of agriculture.

When processing, transforming, movement or estimates of technical objects from the worker are required the accuracy, definiteness of actions. As technical objects practically are always created by the person, in the world of equipment there are especially ample opportunities for innovation, an invention, technical creativity. Along with creative approach to matter in equipment area from the person the high performing discipline is required.

The person — an artistic image

Here the main, leading object of the labor - an artistic image, ways of its construction.

Professions: actor, artist, musician, designer, carver of a stone, literary worker.

Professions like "people - an artistic image" include:

the professions connected with graphic activity,

the professions connected with musical activity,

the professions connected with literary and art activity,

the professions connected with actor's and scenic activity.

One of features of professions like "people - an artistic image" consists that the considerable share of labor expenses remains hidden from the detached onlooker. Moreover, special efforts for creation of effect of ease, ease of the end result of work are quite often made.

The person — the nature

Professions: seed grower, master cattle breeder, livestock specialist, agronomist, cynologist, chemical and bacteriological analysis laboratory assistant, etc.

Like "people - the nature" it is possible to distinguish the professions from professions, which object of the labor: vegetable organisms, animal organisms, microorganisms.

These are the professions connected with rural economy, the food industry, medicine and scientific researches (biology, geography). Strangely enough, the psychologist, the tourism and hotel business manager have to have a certain interest to the nature.

The specified division doesn't mean, of course, that work of the person is directed only on the subjects mentioned above. Plant breeders, for example, work in collective, use various equipment, deal with issues of an economic assessment of the work. But nevertheless the main subject of attention and cares of plant breeders - plants and their environment of existence.

With other party, At choice of profession of this type it is very important to understand, how exactly you treat the nature: as to the vacation spot or as to a workshop in which you are going to direct all efforts to production.

And one more moment which should be considered at choice of profession. Feature of biological objects of work consists that they are difficult, changeable (under the internal laws), are non-standard. Both plants, and animals, and microorganisms live, grow, develop, and also are ill, perish. The worker needs to know much not simply about live organisms, but to expect possible changes in them which are sometimes irreversible. From the person the initiative and independence in the solution of specific labor objectives, care, foresight is required.

The person — a sign

Here the main, leading object of the labor - conventional signs, figures, the codes which are natural or artificial languages.

the professions connected with information processing in the form of system of conventional signs, schematic images of objects.

Successfully to work by profession, special abilities mentally to plunge into the world, apparently, dry designations are necessary, to distract from actually subject properties of world around and to concentrate on data which bear in itself these or those signs. At information processing in the form of conventional signs there are problems of control, check, the account, processing of data, and also creations of new signs, sign systems.

What is the profession?

The profession is the social characteristic of the person indicating his belonging to certain category of people who are engaged in an identical type of work. Work is professional if two conditions are satisfied at least.

First, the profession is characterized by existence of a demanded skill level, that is skill, abilities, knowledge and skills which almost always is confirmed by special documents on professional education: diplomas, certificates, certificates, certificates.

Secondly, the profession is peculiar goods which can be sold on a labor market. And, goods which is in demand for which employers are ready to pay. That is, the profession is an income source for her owner.

How it is possible to learn about a profession. There are some ways of search and collection of information about professions:

You can ask to tell about professions of knowing people interesting you.

You have opportunity to read about different professions in literature or to learn about some of them in movies.

The following sources of information can represent the greatest interest: books; newspapers and magazines; television and radio; video movies; information on computer disks, information on the Internet.

It is possible to observe work of experts on their workplace. Supervision over work of professionals gives you opportunity to receive own impression about some professions.


On occupation characteristics people unite in categories or groups of the people who are engaged in an identical type of work. Means, to choose a profession is not so much to choose to itself work, how many to be admitted to a certain group of people, to accept its ethical standards, rules, the principles, values, a way of life.

Today in their Russia more than six thousand are, and everyone imposes certain requirements to the person. One professions demand from the person of force and dexterity, others - mainly mind and accuracy, the third - sociability and restraint.

That it was easier to be guided in this huge world of professions, experts united them in groups on various types and classes. The type of a profession indicates with what the person should deal in the course of the activity. Distinguish five types of professions - "person person", "person nature", "person technician", "the person - sign system", "the person - an artistic image". And the class of professions speaks about degree of complexity and demanded qualification of the person, i.e. about nature of work which can be executive or creative.

Job search begins with choice of profession. Be convinced that your profession is that is necessary for you. First of all, it is quite good to find out why you want to choose this or that profession, what requirements you impose to it:

• You want that your profession was prestigious, used recognition in society?

• You would like to get any profession if only it was well paid?

• You want that your profession was interesting?

• You look for a profession which would be characterized by good working conditions?

• You choose a profession which is easiest for getting?

• You are going to cast in the lot with a profession by council or an example of other people?

Professional suitability is requirements to a state of health of the person, the requirement to professional qualification and requirements to professional abilities. Health, qualification and abilities of the person are his professionally important qualities. If level of their development is surpassed by what is required for mastering a profession, the person can be considered professionally suitable for this profession.

For psychologists the greatest interest is represented by abilities. At their existence, and also in the presence of health always it is possible to gain qualification, experience, knowledge and skills.

So, in order that it is correct to choose to itself a profession, you should orient in three things.

• To define, what your professional interests and tendencies, i.e. desires of the person, motivation, need for certain kinds of activity, aspirations not only to result, but also to the process of that the person does. Appeal of work, interest to it depends on tendencies. Tendencies conditionally designate expression "I want".

• To estimate your professionally important qualities which define, eventually, your professional suitability. Except health and qualification, abilities, i.e. such individual qualities of the person on which possibility of successful implementation of activity (for example, temperament) depends belong to this group. Abilities conditionally put into words "I Can".

• To learn, what professions are in demand for employers on a labor market, by what professions can find work. In other words, to define what "Is necessary" today.

In case you manage to combine I "Want", I "Can" and It "is necessary", your professional choice will be successful. In other words, your task consists in finding a profession, which:

• It is interesting and attractive to you,

• Corresponds to your abilities,

• Is in demand on a labor market.

In life the following main options of choice of profession meet:

• choice according to family tradition;

• choice occasionally, at random

• choice on calling;

• choice by calculation.
