  • 6. The Myers-Briggs Inventory shows that my personality type is ISFJ (Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Judgment); the typical career direction for ISFJ’s is based on the following traits:
    • ISFJs have two basic traits which help define their best career direction:
      • They are extremely interested and in-tune with how other people are feeling
      • They enjoy creating structure and order, and are extremely good at it.
    • Ideally, the ISFJ will choose a career in which they can use their exceptional people-observation skills to determine what people want or need, and then use their excellent organizational abilities to create a structured plan or environment for achieving what people want.

  • 7. As an ISFJ, career satisfaction means doing work that:
    • Requires careful observation and meticulous accuracy, where I can use my ability to remember facts and details
    • Lets me work on tangible projects that help other people, often requiring great accuracy and attention to detail
    • Lets me express my compassion and devotion by working hard behind the scenes, but where my contributions are recognized and appreciated
    • Is done in a traditional, stable, orderly and structured environment, where the results are practical and service-oriented
    • Requires that I adhere to standard procedures, use practical judgment, and follow through in a careful, organized way
    • Lets me focus all my energy on one project or one person at a time, working on products or services that have observable end results
    • Gives me a private work space so I can concentrate fully for extended periods of time and with a minimum of interruptions
    • Lets me work primarily one-on-one, helping others, or with other people who share my personal values and beliefs
    • Requires me to be organized and efficient in completing my assignments
    • Does not require too frequently that I present my work in front of groups of people without having adequate time to prepare well in advance
