To some, personality tests might be an inaccurate, non-factual way of classifying the different people in their lives. However, the Myers Briggs Personality Types (MBTI) can be a useful tool to help you find both your next career step or your dream career. 

Don't know what the MBTI test is? Well, Isabel Myers, founder, and creator of the test believed that everyone on earth can be classified according to 16 Personalities. Each of the personalities is made out of one of four psychological functions (i.e. Sensation, Intuition, Feeling, Thinking), which drives each person.

Before we get started, it is best to read up more on the Myers Briggs Personality Types and the MBTI Test. This is the first half of out MBTI series, so keep an eye out for our second MBTI article soon!

ENTJs are natural born leaders. They are articulate and prefer logical reasoning as it allows them to tap into the analytical part of their brain. Just like a military commander, individuals with this personality type are blunt and direct in their speech, preferring to be assertive.

Success and hard work motivate ENTJs. Commanders flourish in an environment that allows them to be goal-oriented and help lead change.

Like the ENTJ, ESFJs value order. However, the ESFJ is a sensitive personality, and are often perceptive of their surroundings. Individuals with the provider personality like to get involved and help out others. However, the ESFJ does have some prominent weaknesses such as seeing things only in black and white, as these individuals stick to a strict moral code.

Those who stray away from this moral code will be met with judgment and brutal advice - but remember this is just the ESFJ’s method to promote harmony and make everyone get along.


Ideal Jobs for the ESFJ

Providers are the second more common personality type in the population. Individuals with this personality type have success in working with others. An ideal workplace environment would be one with a structured environment and clear expectations.
