    The funny thing is, you could post this on just about any random thread and it will make as much sense.
    Yes.
    Sense is inborn.
    Not an article you can trade, sell or buy.
    But of course you may try.

I don't know where most of the displaced ISTJs work now, but it's probably in accounting (which is, curiously-enough, something that coders often do at some point in their careers, and something in which I've never had the slightest interest).

    In ancient software development companies, maybe, but those have almost all gone the way of the dinosaur.

    It's also important to remember that frequency of use is only a third of the story. There's also quality, and all N's aren't created equal. Also, intuition doesn't serve the same purpose in all types.

    I've noticed a number of "testers" have part accounting qualifications. But Corporate accounting / systems accounting / systems implementation / testing is a connected route really. Most accountants have the same mindset as coders/testers.

    Accounting process jobs are being shed to offshoring in huge numbers now... so coders to accountants is just a continual line "towards the edge".
