Understanding your preferences as an INTP will make it easier to identify what is likely to feel 'right' for you at work and help you when you are planning a career change.
The best employment options for you will allow you to use your natural strengths and limit your exposure to tasks and situations that will drain you.
Here are some suggestions about what is likely to suit you in terms
of personal strengths at work, preferred environment and your leadership
style. There is also an indication of possible areas of weakness you
should watch out for when you are assessing career change ideas.
Your strengths at work
Your preferred work environment
Your leadership style
Weaknesses you should watch out for
These points should help you identify if a job or an area of work is worth considering. But remember that there are successful people of ALL types in ALL jobs. Particular types may find certain areas of work especially satisfying and others more challenging.
Use your understanding of your own INTP preferences to help you explore and develop your career ideas, not to limit them.
