MBTI® Test ENFJ Loan Counselors

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Enterprising, Social, Conventional (ESC) (GOT)

Hammer (1996) writes that Extraverted-Intuition-Feeling-Judging (ENFJ) Myers-Briggs test personality types do best when they have the opportunity to work with others to provide a helpful service or counseling. They are enthusiastic and organized, and also enjoy supporting others in achieving their goals. Due to this, MBTI test ENFJ’s can often make ideal Loan Counselors.

Loan Counselors are responsible for providing guidance to people who are applying for loans. This guidance requires knowledge of the particular types of loans their company or bank offers, as well as an understanding of the needs and financial situation of their clients. Loan counselors may need to formally analyze applicants’ credit and financial status to determine whether granting them a loan will be possible, and if so, with what additional stipulations and interest rates. Because they are directly involved with providing guidance, loan counselors need to be able to check loan agreements to ensure their completeness and accuracy, and must also be aware of current credit regulations at the national, state, and local level. In some cases, loan counselors may also need to contact applicants after the application is submitted in order to resolve unanswered questions and perhaps reduce the clients’ overall costs.

Loan counselors need to be able to use a variety of different kinds of calculators and computers, as well as auto dialers and other telecommunications software. They also need an understanding of more sophisticated technology, including spreadsheet, internet browser, and email software, as well as word processing software. Depending on the organization for which they work, loan counselors may need a database user interface and query software as well, such as EMT Applications CounselorMax, Sungard Higher Education PowerFAIDS, or some other kind of software.

In order to excel in their position, most loan counselors will need exceptional listening and reading skills in English, as well as a basic knowledge of law, to be able to interpret the relevant policies, administration and management, and clerical procedures. In some cases, particularly if they are involved in supervision or training of others, loan counselors may also need a background in education or curriculum design. For these reasons, the ability to speak precisely, design effective presentations, and produce clear, comprehensive written documents is vital to being a successful loan counselor. In order to develop these skills effectively, most loan counselors hold at least a bachelor’s degree. However, many professionals have acquired significant vocational experience or on-the-job training in lieu of a formal degree.

Moreover, Myers-Briggs test ENFJ’s are a good fit in careers as loan counselors because they enjoy working closely with others, especially clients, in order to better support them and achieve more optimal outcomes for all.
