    Default 70% of Chief Information Officers are ISTJs

    This is really pretty interesting. It kind of make sense considering the IT executives I've interacted with.

    Most CIOs perceive the world through information gained through the five senses, which means they prefer to focus on concrete facts, numbers and data that happen in the present, according to the research of Joe Peppard, a professor at the European School of Management and Technology. Broadly speaking, CEOs and CMOs tend to focus on intuition, or information acquired as patterns or hunches, said Ms. Haynie. “So they might be pushing more toward the big picture, looking long range at the vision,” she said.

    Mr. Peppard’s research, conducted on hundreds of participants in his IT Leadership Program over nearly a decade, found that 70% of CIOs fall into a personality type called ISTJ.....

    Typically other C-suite executives are either INTJ or ENTJ personality types.

    For example, her firm has worked with clients who have received feedback that they’re too rigid, or too narrowly focused. Others with the ISTJ personality type might have been told that they’re too focused on the short term and past historical events and need to pay more attention to developing a vision for the future. Still other CIOs may have gotten feedback that they need to take greater risks and be more innovative. Executive coaches can help CIOs develop these skills.

    The title is a bit loaded, but the advice for ISTJs to mind their weaknesses is sound.
    If 70% of them were INTJ's, I would expect them to be taught the value of pre existing structures and intensive factual observations before jumping to conclusions, amongst misc other stuff that INTJs do not naturally excel at.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Wen i click the link it just shows the topic and only this text under it "The most common Myers-Briggs personality types of CIOs differ from CEOs and CMOs in how they experience the world. This difference can make CIOs appear to be slower moving and not innovative enough." and then comments start.. Maybe they took down the article or there is some glitch.

    yeah, it's odd. I had to Google search to get the whole article, and even then I can't link the result because it returns the odd stump that we see by default.
