You just described deadlines, tangibility and focus as S traits, while associating creativity and large picture viewing with Ns. IOW, you just described a mix of S and J traits with N and P traits, at best... the main focus is on the J/P portions.Need people there to deal with limited structure, create original marketing ideas, and pay close attention to the outside world by monitoring the competition. Product Development is dominated by Ss. Need people there to make sure developers hit deadlines, that the product works as advertised, and pay no attention to the outside world because they're so focused on getting a great product out the door.
Perhaps with product development or marketing in particular because this is not the case in general.What happens if you put one into the wrong place is that they'll end up doing the other's job. Been doing this long enough to see it happens many times. No other factor - schooling, intelligence, college major - better predicts the right fit than the N-S indicator.
Not a claim, but an open ended statement. Since you are not using the system and placing according to it, it is only your biases that are a factor - that I don't worry about.Also very silly to claim it's prejudice. This business is filled with Indians, women, SE Asians, West Africans, WASPs, Russians, Israelis, Brits, you name it. Being an N or an S doesn't predict whether you can contribute to the company, but it does tell where you're most likely to be successful.
It wouldn't matter how multicultural the company is - if it does something, it does it, and if they use the system in a prejudiced manner, then they are predjudiced. You have use a lot of blanket statements in your posts above this one, and so I would say that your thinking is prejudiced - that is, you have prejudged a person's capabilities not on the demonstration of them, but based on your general rule of thumb of a person's type.
However, that is for you to wrestle on - it's not a slight, we all do this to some degree. It's when it turns into giving the test and deciding based on it that you would be in a breach of ethics.
