    Default MBTI Corp: The Hypothetical 16-Person Company

    I wrote this, and again, I can't get any of my friends to care.

    So I'll pawn it off on you guys...what's everybody think?


    ENTJ (NT Rational) - CEO of the company. Oversees each department and communicates directly with department heads. Sets wide-reaching, long-term goals for the company and coordinates all departments to structure an overall business strategy and lead the company to success, in whatever way necessary.

    ENFJ (NF Idealist) - Vice President/Director of Human Resources. Shares the CEO's vision for leading the company in creative new directions in an organized and methodical manner, but offers perspective on the more personal, subjective and emotional sides of relations with employees as well as the rest of the business world.

    INTJ (NT Rational) - Upper Management. Likely does a lot of the delegating of broader goals to middle management, and translates them into specific tasks to be completed on schedule. Analyzes the overall efficiency of each department and uses this to more effectively delegate these tasks--often an INTJ in the office is a contracted management consultant/efficiency expert. Could also probably use an INTJ or two in the R&D department to keep the NTPs on task.

    ESTP (SP Artisan) - Marketing/Advertising Director. Reports directly to the CEO on profitable opportunities to expand the company, enter new markets, make mutually beneficial agreements with other businesses, etc. Likely works with SFPs in the advertising department, except the ESTP provides the selling points and not the visual design.

    ENFP (NF Idealist) - Public Relations. The ENFP is the sunny, compassionate public face of the company; s/he meets with representatives from the media, advocacy groups, and politics and maintains positive relations with all of these parties in the best interest of the company's image.

    ESTJ (SJ Guardian) - Middle Management/Administrative. Not in control of the company's overall direction or broad-scope strategic planning, but excellent at delegating tasks to lower level employees and translating directives from upper management into tangible results, on schedule!

    ENTP (NT Rational) - Head of R&D. Loves to pitch new ideas and product designs and work with others to tweak them to perfection. Probably is the de facto mouthpiece for the R&D team when upper management asks for progress reports and so on. Enthusiasm gets the team motivated to start lots of new ideas, but follow through can be a weakness.

    INFP (NF Idealist) - Ethics Advisory Services. May be a company employee or an outside contractor. Are the company's actions and policies consistent with local, state and federal laws as well as morally acceptable by the general public? What can we do to improve the company's overall attention to ethics? INFPs answer these sorts of questions, and they probably wrote the company's mission statement, too.

    ESFJ (SJ Guardian) - Customer Service (!) and Inventory. ESFJs are all about making sure their people get the practical materials they need to get their day to day responsibilities done correctly, and done on schedule. This can include employees as well as customers, so the ESFJ is likely also in charge of various maintenance tasks such as ordering business supplies, calling in the ISTP to fix the copy machine, etc.

    INTP (NT Rational) - R&D Team Member/Marketing Research. Similar to ENTP, but more focused on analyzing each aspect of each product idea and testing all possibilities for improvement of the product's functionality (not to mention the INTP's own boundless curiosity.) Likely high in intelligence and creativity, with a seemingly endless capacity for engineering new, exciting features for the products--useful or not. Also shows talent for observing trends in market data and using them to project similar future data.

    ESFP (SP Artisan) - Front Service, Host, etc. Probably great with store inventory, people and directing customers at retail outlets to the desired items. ESFPs generally seek such employment out of a strong interest in the product itself--this combined with their often personally charming and genial nature will encourage repeat customers while also boosting overall employee morale in the retail outlet.

    INFJ (NF Idealist) - Company Psychologist/Counselor, etc. Almost certainly works in HR, and therefore reports directly to the VP/HR Director ENFJ. Strong talents for reading people's emotions and responding empathetically to most any viewpoint; most commonly put to use mediating disputes between employees and providing them psychiatric and emotional support when necessary.

    ISTP (SP Artisan) - Network Administrator/Tech Support. The ISTP loves working with his hands and tweaking technology and equipment to figure out how it all works, and keep it in proper working order. Often very talented with inventive but practical solutions to real world logistics problems in the office.

    ISTJ (SJ Guardian) - Accountant, Legal Services, etc. These are the nuts and bolts of the company's employee base, and they can always be depended upon to provide consistent, accurate and unbiased reports on the company's finances and other practical, objective matters. Takes duties extremely seriously and applies a cautious, conservative and detail-oriented approach to workplace matters.

    ISFJ (SJ Guardian) - Personal Assistant, Bookkeeper, Secretary, etc. May officially hold a variety of different maintenance and mid-level jobs, but frequently ends up taking on many more tasks than s/he can or should be expected to handle. Often does not receive due recognition for his/her efforts and abilities due to desire to avoid "showing off", and this can stunt the ISFJ's upward movement in the company, but his/her consistent willingness to work hard, meet deadlines and help other employees in thoughtful and practical ways proves the ISFJ's value as a team member.

    ISFP (SP Artisan) - Advertising/Artistic Services. Serves the company's need for artistic and aesthetic applications, such as designing its logo or writing its radio jingle. May work for the company full time or as an outside contractor. The ISFP uses his/her natural sense of visual aesthetics to advise the company on the physical appearance of its public outlets, employees and offices to create the most inviting sales environment possible.

    Neat. That part does sound a lot like what my ISFJ mom does at work.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    I don't know, I think I would enjoy more the place of the ENTP. Yet, perhaps I would be better suited to the place of the ENTJ, provided that the firm's was operating in an innovative field.

    nice

    I work in the tech industry, and I'd say over half of all companies I've come across were started by ENTPs, and over half now have ENTJ CEOs

    Fs mostly end up in sales, HR, or PR, seen a couple Fs with engineering degrees move through product marketing on their way to PR

    seen a lot of top school STJs get misplaced into strategic jobs, and get very frustrated, once saw a Harvard-educated STJ get visibly concerned that no one had signed off on meeting minutes, meanwhile his company had 2 weeks of cash in the bank

    ESTPs are also weak at strategy, but make excellent sales engineers, they're the best at explaining the ins and outs of a technical product to a customer

    Dude, you are being kind to the SJ's. What type is the janitor and other low-level jobs?

    Another good position for an ISFJ would be project management.

    That's actually where the INTPs would be, after they dropped out of school.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    That's what I was thinking!
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Too bad they come in dozens instead of millions
