Using Type to Select a Career
Many use Type to find a new career, to uncover what to study, or to re-align their existing career. Career choices are major life decisions. It is important to remember that anyone can do any position. There is no exact Type for each position. However there might be a career choice that aligns the expectations of a position with the natural tendencies of your personality Type. For instance would a librarian be happy as a sales person who spends their day giving presentations to large groups? Probably not, the librarian could do the job, would feel spent exhausted and stressed at the end of each day.
