    a. First, please note that this theory is quite applicable to apply to professional work dynamics. It allows any work or business to create assessment tools to match an individual's abilities or interests to a specific task. It also allows work personnel to assign and align workers to individual tasks based on personalities, measured abilities, etc.

    In terms of dynamics, it allows workers to accommodate individual needs and create conducive working climates to maximize working relationships. As a result, please note that research shows how "congruence occurs when personality type matches work environment" (academic.udayton.edu/AnnePfohl/handouts/Career theory.pdf).

    This theory is especially important in working dynamics. Please note that Gottfredson's research uses Trait Theory to show the link among jobs, self-image, roles of social class, intelligence, orientation to size and power, orientation to social valuation (_academic.udayton.edu/AnnePfohl/handouts/Career theory.pdf), and other steps that allow work environments to operate smoothly. This theory paves a path for workers to be happy, satisfied, and collaborative.

It also affects dynamics in a worker's ability to adjust, compromise, trade-off, and even "sacrifice interests before prestige or gender type" (academic.udayton.edu/AnnePfohl/handouts/Career theory.pdf).

    This theory is applicable because it not only focuses on cognitive factors that underlie a worker's performance but also "methods, means, pathways to creating meaning from what ...
