Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Certified Practitioner and blog writer Joe Arrigo delivers tailored career advice based on the MBTI. In addition to working one-on-one with clients, Joe Arrigo develops useful infographics that readers can use to better understand how their MBTI personalities impact their success in the workplace.
One of the dichotomies measured in the MBTI relates to how an individual collects and processes information. Sensing types are drawn to concrete elements and numbers. They may be more focused on existing solutions and small details. Intuitive types are the opposite. They are innovative and big-picture oriented.
As the label suggests, intuitive types may rely more on their experiences and understanding of a topic rather than hard data to make decisions. Both types can be successful in multiple roles and work environments. Sensing types may prefer occupations that are structured and deal with precision, such as accounting, engineering, or health care. Intuitives are better suited for flexible and creative work, such as a career in education, computer programming, or the arts.
Outside of his varied professional pursuits, Joe Arrigo enjoys reading and weightlifting, working out four times per week. He also reads upward of 50 books per year and enjoys ping pong, darts, and partaking in political discussion.
