ISTJ careers (based on research)
ISTJs tend to enjoy a career if it involves working towards clear goals, with clear lines of authority, responsibility and accountability. ISTJs prefer careers that give them the privacy to work without interruption, where they can develop their knowledge and apply their experience to practical work. ISTJs prefer careers in which there is more:
- thinking about ideas and information (Introversion)
- dealing with facts and tangible outcomes (iNtuition)
- making decisions using objective logic (Thinking)
- using a well-defined and structured workstyle (Judgment)
The careers chosen most often by ISTJs (according to our research with people already in work) include medical, science, engineering, analysis, accountancy, academia, law, computing, project management.
