Choosing a College Major from Princeton Review
The Princeton Review is a very respected resource for college and major selection insights.

https://www.princetonreview.com/college-advice/choosing-college-majors

Choosing College Majors by Personality Types
One way that colleges and universities aid students in selecting a college major is by
giving them the Holland Test which asks a series of questions to determine what
combination of personality types the tester is and match it with a college major.
One example of this is the link from the University of North Florida. 
http://www.unf.edu/careerservices/Holland_Codes_and_Majors_at_UNF.aspx 

ASVAB - Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery 
This aptitude test is given to SHCA high school students annually.  It is
used by the military for job placement, but it is also a valuable
occupational tool for students to use.  See links below.  


LINK - ASVAB Interest Inventory for Occupations (Occu-Find)
By taking this military test, available to high school students at SHCA,
you will also have access to the Occupational Areas grouped by
Personality Types.  ADSVAB uses the same interest categories as the
Holland Test reflected on college websites such as the above University
of North Florida website.
