Career balance of styles
Each of the 16 personality types (ENFJ, ISTP, etc.) refers to a particular style of behaving or thinking. You use all the styles, and your personality type (which you share with hundreds of millions of people) indicates which style you prefer to use most. The balance that you like between the different styles is unique to you. The diagram, right, shows the balance of styles required in a typical pharmacist job. Use the drop-down box to select a different career.
- Lighter (and slightly redder) segments mean the job requires more of that style. The lighter the segment, the more it is required. The lighter segments suggest this career involves more solving practical problems; theorising or analysing; following defined procedures; maintaining good relationships; solving immediate problems or crises, etc.
- Darker (and less colourful) segments mean the job requires less of that style. That is, the job does not involve as much working towards ideals; challenging the status quo; starting new initiatives, etc.
You will enjoy a career more if the balance of styles required in the job matches the balance that you prefer. You can find out how well they match by completing our career test. The optional Careers Report matches your unique personality profile with over 100 careers.
