ABSTRACT

Lifology is the study of human beings in relation to their career and occupational eco-system. Lifology is the outcome of the search for a more valid, and precise knowledge about the relationship between human beings, career, and occupational eco-system. The traditional approach to career development has been vigorously upheld as a source of viable forms of theory and practice (Rounds & Tracey, 1990; Swanson, 1996), recent reviews indicate that there has been international diversity in models of practice and a movement toward alternative perspectives but nothing much has been reported much in reports. Most of our test is based on a single model theory which has been questioned by many scholars before also (Bradley, 1994; Herr, 1988; Isaacson & Brown, 1993; Kidd, 1988; Tinsley & Bradley, 1988). Due to the availability of many test and assessments, the core principles of career counseling has been forgotten (Parameshuran, Rahul et.al, 2018). In short psychometric tests are at risk of being used merely as technological, clerical devices without an appreciation of the unique phenomenology and context of the individual being tested. Lifology is an attempt to answer the forgotten mission of career counseling.
