Agreeable personalities could make some of the best nurses, since these professionals constantly help and care for their patients.

All registered nurses need to have a license, but their education can be through a diploma, associate's or bachelor's degree program.

Someone with an agreeable personality may enjoy a career as a mental health counselor, in which they'd help clients work through various conflicts and problems.

Mental health counselors may work with groups, individuals, couples or even families to address issues like grief, stress, depression, anxiety and more. Most of these professionals need to complete an internship and hold a master's degree.
