MBTI for Career Planning
Find the career that's right for your personality
Looking for a career that will really satisfy you? Discover your personality type and explore careers that take advantage of your natural strengths and talents.
How the MBTI can help
When you take the official MBTI online, you'll answer questions about your unique style of getting energized, making decisions, organizing your life, and learning about the world around you. Your responses show your preferences on four facets of personality:
- Extraverted or Introverted? Do you get your energy from other people, or from your own internal world?
- Sensing or Intuitive? Do you focus on the present and what you can see, or the future and what you can imagine?
- Thinking or Feeling? Do you make decisions based on logic, or on values and people?
- Judging or Perceiving? Do you prefer things structured and organized, or flexible and spontaneous?
Put together, these four personality facets create a four-letter personality type, such as ENFP or ISTJ.
Your report explains your personality type and how it can help you find your ideal career. You'll discover the top careers for your type, based on decades of research with people just like you.
Who can benefit from the MBTI
The MBTI may be taken by anyone over the age of 14. Discovering your personality type is a key aspect of career planning at any age, whether choosing a college or a major, finding a job that you'll be successful in, or changing careers altogether.
Because the MBTI describes who you are at your core, it can help you to choose a career that makes the most of who you truly are: your way of thinking, your style of communicating, and your natural strengths and talents.
Understanding your personality is an important step in choosing a career that will motivate, satisfy, and fulfill you over the long term.
