Read an Excerpt

INTRODUCTION
One of Isabel Myers' earliest goals for the MBTI® instrument was to help people choose careers that would be interesting to them and would call on their strengths. Ongoing research with individuals and the MBTI instrument has confirmed that there are very real type differences in how people learn and how they work. Research shows there are patterns in the different types of how they choose or avoid various occupations. You will be introduced to these patterns later in this book.
Research also shows that every personality type can be found in any given career, and so it's particularly important to recognize that there are type differences in the kinds of tasks, roles, and environments that people enjoy-regardless of career area. Perhaps most important, there are type differences in the way people approach all of the activities needed to develop and manage their careers. Grasping these differences empowers you to make informed decisions about your career development. You can determine if the choices you are making are supporting you or are getting in the way of an ultimately satisfying career path.
The bottom line for the application of psychological type in your career exploration is expressed in two phrases often used by Isabel Myers: "gifts differing," and "the constructive use of differences." A career is one place where we can find expression for our differing gifts-our unique personal qualities and talents. In addition, since a career provides us with opportunities to work with people whose qualities and talents differ from our own, an understanding of type can help us to blend and make use of those differences in constructive ways.
The differentsections of this book address some major steps in your career development and management. Essentially, you need to learn about who you are, gather information on your career options, make decisions about where you want to go, and follow through on the decisions you make by having goals and taking concrete action. This book is designed to help you understand and make use of type at every one of these steps.
As you read this book, you will want to respect your own natural tendencies, and explore your career options in a way that makes use of the strengths of your type. In addition, you will also want to have a healthy respect for the potential blind spots that can be associated with your particular type preferences.
And finally, since we believe in the value and power of the different personality types, we encourage you to approach this book in a way that fits for you and your own type preferences. That is, go to the parts that most appeal to you, and approach those sections in an order that makes sense to you. In addition, since our type preferences cause us to prefer some kinds of information over others, please be aware that the activities in this book that you most want to skip may be particularly helpful to someone with your type preferences!
