    Default stats on type in the workplace

    Hi guys,

    Does anybody have a good source for stats on different types in diffrerent workplaces?

    NTs as lawyers,
    NFs in human social sciences

    and so on...

    links, articles, books, I am willing to shell out money to purchase if needed.

    Well, there are all sorts of MBTI books out there. Gifts differing, worktypes, lifetypes, type talk, type talk at work, do what you are, what type is your career, what type am I are all books on my bookshelf that I like to different extents. Are you looking for "typical good fit" lists, or breakdowns of MBTI percentages within a given career?

    Also, I do believe that you are an NF that might be working in a NT environment, so please, comment on my thread about that in the NF forum! Please

    There is some like 50$ document, CAPT or something, never bought it.

    Engineers: ST, NT
    managers: STJ, NTJ
    medical: FJ and somewhat FP
    grade level education: ~2/3 SJ ~ 1/3 NF
    humanities professor: NF
    medical instructor: NFJ
    graphic design: lots of INFPS
    marketing: seems like plenty of ENFPs
    alternative health care: NF, NFP
    psychology/counseling: INF
    doctors and surgeons: NT + ST

    i wouldn't consider fields based on introversion or extroversion as these seem trivial compared to the general types. other than that, i'd say your description has at least some accuracy.
    i hunt INXPs for bounty

    No stats to back me up, but if we're going by the best type for professions (again, I mean in general):

    Artists - ISFP
    Engineers - ENTJ
    Lawyers - ENTP
    Writers - INFJ
    Musicians - xNFP
    Carpenters - ISTP

    I need offical stuff as I have to make a case to the estps I work with regarding how we market to our mostly scientific audiance.

    I would like to give them a full presentation and show a type breakdown if possible but since I am dealing with a bunch of estps and one estj, it's all in data from "official" sources.

    chosen. lots of my engineers are istjs but the only entj was the big boss. Good engineer but brillant leader. Are you a mech or EE or civil?

    Its odd. Our NTs give us info, which then gets fed through a bunch of SP/SJ marketing sales folks back to other NTs who now have no idea what the hell we are trying to say. It gets old.
