Myers-Briggs Personality Type Infographic Provides Valuable Career Advice and Income Data

Being familiar with your Myers-Briggs personality type can provide valuable insight into what type of job might be best suited for you. The Career Assessment Site put together a socioeconomic infographic that highlights the test's personality traits, their average household income, and more.

There are four main categories in this fascinating chart: the optimist, the patriarch, the pragmatist, and the originator. From there, the groups are broken down into nuanced personalities like INFJ and ESTP. Find yours to see what you excel at, what needs work, and what percentage of the American population your type occupies. The infographic also shows the average salary and educational level that different personalities achieve.

While this chart doesn't tell you a specific career path, it does clue you in on aspects to look for, job-wise. If you fall into the pragmatist category, you might want to find work that celebrates creative problem solving. The patriarch, in contrast, likes rules and structure, so something like management could be a good fit. Being aware of these traits and tendencies can help find the most fulfilling career for you.
