MBTI® Test ENFJ Health Educators

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Social, Enterprising (SE)

According to Hammer (1996), Extraverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Judging (Myers-Briggs test ENFJ) personality types work best in fields where they can work directly with people to help them improve their lives, or in fields involving the arts and working with their hands. Due to these passions MBTI test ENFJs can often be a good fit in careers such as health educators.

Health Educators develop and present programs that spread awareness about certain aspects of health in a variety of settings. This could vary from presentations in schools and colleges to best practices in businesses and nonprofits. For this reason, they need to develop a broad base of contacts and relationships with agencies and organizations that provide or are in need of these kinds of health care services. They also need to be able to gather the necessary information to design workshops and initiatives that are appropriate for the organizations with which they work. This may include demographic data, health data, and local resources. Health Educators also need to be able to evaluate the success of initiatives that are already implemented in the field, and provide advice to their clients about best practices in the future and how to improve their public health even more.

Health Educators need to use a variety of tools, hardware, and software in order to be successful. These may include notebook and personal computers, smartphones and personal organizers, DVD players, and LCD projectors, in addition to database software (e.g., Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC Wonder, Microsoft Access); Email software like Microsoft Outlook or Gmail, Graphics software like Adobe Photoshop, and blogging or web creation software like Facebook or Wikis. Health Educators’ jobs center around disseminating information, and being plugged in technologically is the most effective way of doing that quickly and efficiently.

In addition to these technical skills, Health Educators need to have a variety of knowledge and skills. For instance, they often need an understanding of the social sciences, including sociology, anthropology, and psychology to understand why the organizations are currently implementing their current practices and how to design initiatives that they will be receptive to. They also need an understanding of communications and media, as well as education and training in order to effectively disseminate information for improving practices. Finally, Health Educators need to have an understanding of the inner workings of organizations’ administration and management. Otherwise, they may not be able to get the support for their initiatives that are so necessary to motivate social change.

In order to achieve their goals, Health Educators need to have exceptionally strong language and communication skills, as well as a basic understanding of health and medicine. Because of this technical knowledge base, many Health Educators earn a bachelor’s degree. However, there are some who hold only a high school diploma or an associate’s degree, and instead have several years of work-related experience or on-the-job training.

Below are some employment trends for Health Educators:

  • Median wage: $26.55 hourly, $55,220 annually
  • Employment: 62,100 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Faster than average (7% to 10%)
