Certain Traits May Help You Succeed

It is essential to thoroughly understand your own strengths and weaknesses before any big career step. If the things you want out of a career changes on a daily basis, a personality assessment such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® may help you find your footing. Your personality type can reveal how you work, how you interact with others, and how this information can help you. Many people complete the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and find a mirror self reflected on the page. Through C. G. Jung’s theory, a set of seemingly random questions quickly becomes an in-depth understanding of your personality.

This examination can prove advantageous as a real estate agent because it indicates how to best use your personality strengths in your workplace. Most real estate agents are associated with the ENTP personality. ENTP stands for extraversion, intuition, thinking, and perceiving. This indicates a person who is energized by time spent with others (Extraverted), who focuses on ideas and concepts rather than facts and details (Intuitive), who makes decisions based on logic and reason (Thinking), and who prefers to be spontaneous and flexible rather than planned and organized (Perceiving), according to Truity.

A career as a real estate agent is perfect for an ENTP because they are typically go-getters, with enough drive and ambition to create results. An ENTP is also motivated to find creative solutions to challenging problems. If something isn’t working right, an ENTP will devise a new process to be more efficient and productive. These traits make ENTPs a powerful force to be reckoned with when they are focused on accomplishing a project.

As you can probably tell by now, this personality type flawlessly fits into the exciting and comprehensive world of real estate. Real estate agents have the unique ability of juggling multiple tasks efficiently and effectively, all while staying on track after multiple distractions. This personality loves solving problems and would do well in situations that involve helping clients deal with multiple obstacles, issues, and demands. Finding the perfect career fit for your personality like this means maintaining a rewarding work life.

You can take the Myers-Briggs assessment yourself for $49.95 at MBTI or a variation of the Myers-Briggs assessment for free at 16Personalities. If your assessment reveals that you are not an ENTP, don’t start looking for a new career path just yet. Many personalities can be used effectively in a variety of ways. Real estate is not just an industry for ENTPs. You will find ways to highlight your personality strengths in your career, as long as you understand your own work habits and how to use them to your advantage.
