According to Hammer (1996), people who choose careers that build on their Myers-Briggs Types tend to have more fulfilling and longer lasting careers. For instance, Extraverted-Intuition-Feeling-Perceiving (ENFP) Myers-Briggs Types enjoy working with others while helping them develop to their fullest capacity. They are also creative, and are able to use that creativity to solve problems and support others. ENFP Myers-Briggs Types can often make excellent rehabilitation counselors.

Rehabilitation counselors work with clients who are coping with social, personal, or vocational challenges resulting from stress, illness, birth defects, accidents, or other life situations. Like doctors, they prepare and maintain careful records of each of their patients, including medical and personal history, narratives of client contact, relevant correspondence, and so on. They get to know clients personally, and often meet with them periodically for long stretches of time, even years. Throughout this process, they monitor and record clients’ progress and continue to tweak their assistance programs to ensure that clients always receive the best possible care in ways that are personalized for their own situations. In some cases, rehabilitation counselors may also work with other counselors or treatment professionals to provide patients with better care.

Rehabilitation counselors use many different office tools to keep their practices functioning, including desktop, laptop, and personal computers, mobile phones, scanners, keyboards, global positioning systems receivers, and so on. In terms of software, Microsoft Office Suite is all but ubiquitous (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint), though their Google equivalents are also frequently used. Calendar and scheduling software, and budgeting software are also very handy. On occasion, medical software, like Chart Links or Client System may be helpful as well.
