    I'd love to give it a go. Although i know i wouldn't be able to handle the pressure.

    In the banking environment, you forget your handling peoples money instead you just see numbers. You hold a cheque for 18,000.000 and it doesn't register that that money will soon be leaving someones account. You move large amounts of money around internal accounts and again, just figures.

    You get on with the job.

    Didn't really answer your question there.

    Probably an ISTJ or an ESTJ.

    I personally shied away from a career path in investment banking because it called on a certain forecasting abiity, which is very N. That's not an ISTJ job at all. An ESTP could handle it through their people swaying skills but the job requires too much seeing into the future for an ISTJ to handle it properly.

    I'd say an NT at least. I'm leaning toward INTJ.

    America is a Caste system. The best type for iBanking is any type that was raised in that caste.

    INTP, ENTJ. iBanking is not a good field for sensors, you strongly need a grip on the connection between past and future events, the potential for an investment, etc.

    ISTJ or ESTJ can handle the administrative aspect, and/or they can be good real estate investors, but I can't see them as the typical big-picture director in this particular field.

    ENTJ all the way

    know ENTPs and ESTPs who've also done OK, ENTPs for business sense and competitive analysis skills, ESTPs for negotiating deals, INTJs could also probably hack it where they are part of a larger company

    other 12 types can be a terrible fit, have an ESTJ friend who went to top b-school, and really had a hard time with it, hated having to give opinions on a company's future
