MBTI® Test INFJ Graphic Designers
Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Artistic, Realistic, Enterprising (ARE) (GOT)
Hammer (1996) writes that Introverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Judging (INFJ) Myers-Briggs Test Personality Types do best in fields that encourage them to use their developed interpersonal and intuitive characteristics. These characteristics, coupled with their ability to develop concrete, realistic steps to achieve long-term, idealistic goals, can often make MBTI® test INFJ’s a good fit for careers as graphic designers.
Graphic Designers perform a range of tasks in a variety of sectors, including industrial, manufacturing, service, and tech. They are responsible for designing and creating graphics that serve particular purposes for the organization. For instance, they might develop logos, displays, or websites to increase traffic to a website or organization. They might also develop packaging or other products that are meant to increase sales. To do so, they may work together with other designers, or directly with clients to discuss specifications and determine design layouts. Graphic designers also determine the size and arrangement of their materials, and occasionally contribute to the development of a “pitch” to a client or firm. Once they receive feedback, they integrate their client’s comments into final layouts and products.
Successful graphic designers must have mastered the use of a variety of hardware and software. The hardware may include laser printers, notebook and laptop computers, photocopiers, scanners, and still and video cameras. These days, use of smartphones and tablets is generally helpful as well. They may also need to use various software, such as database user interface software (e.g., FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access), desktop publishing software (e.g., Adobe FrameMaker, InDesign, or PageMaker), graphics software (e.g., Adobe Illustrator, Fireworks, etc.), and web development software (e.g., CSS, HTML, JAVA), and others. While the exact software and hardware may differ among different companies or organizations, these general categories will be present in most positions.
In addition to an obvious foundation in design, computers and electronics, communications, and, of course, the English language, graphic designers also need to have developed elite speaking, active listening, and writing skills to be able to communicate successfully and fluently with their clients, peers, and supervisors. This relatively broad knowledge base is generally acquired in college, with over 80% of graphic’s designers having a bachelor’s degree and an additional 11% having also earned an associate’s. Very few hold no tertiary degree.
INFJ’s are ideal for careers as graphic designers because it gives them the opportunity to use their artistic talents in a way that serves and benefits others.
