Type and Professional Interests

One of the most interesting and informing aspects of MBTI® is that each of the sixteen types tends to be drawn toward specific industries, jobs, and vocations. This has been verified through numerous studies.

When we administer the MBTI to a group of accountants, we invariably find a disproportionate number are ISTJs (who are unaware of their like type). In a litigation firm, there are always a large number of ENTPs. Hard sciences are populated with many INTJs. Look at each of the types and see if you verify these findings with your own experience.
