MBTI® Test ENTJ Computer and Information Systems Managers

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Enterprising, Conventional, Investigative (ECI)

Hammer (1996) writes that Myers-Briggs test Extraverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging (ENTJ) Personality Types can succeed in careers that place them in positions of authority, and which reward their naturally quick-thinking, analytical mindsets. For this reason, MBTI test types can make ideal computer and information systems managers.

Computer and information systems managers plan and coordinate activities involving data processing, systems analysis, computer programming, and other related fields. This may require reviewing project plans in order to develop and implement a successful initiative, or developing organizational goals and procedures themselves. Computer and information systems managers must also consult with clients, users, and their company’s administration to assess needs and ensure that their current systems are meeting expectations. They can also run evaluations independently, and evaluate data processing speeds to ensure they are meeting network demands. Furthermore, they are responsible for training new staff, and helping users become familiar with technical systems involved in their own careers. This may involve running workshops, writing informational pamphlets, or handling individual problems with particular clients or employees.

In order to be a successful computer and information systems manager, one must be comfortable working with a wide variety of computer servers, as well as network interface cards and other teleconferencing hardware. They also need to be familiar with a variety of different software. Depending on the company, these may include web platform development software like JavaScript or Ruby on Rails, Object development software like C++ or Microsoft SQL, or development environment software like Visual Basic. They will also be even more hirable if they can demonstrate a track record of being able to develop a proficiency in a range of different programming languages, or rapidly build knowledge of new systems. In today’s rapidly changing working environment, flexibility is of the utmost importance.

Computer and information systems managers need a solid grounding in computers and electronics and telecommunications. Of course, fluent and confident English communication and customer service skills will demonstrate a familiarity with the field and imply a comfort with working with superiors and supervisors as well. Being able to actively listen to needs or requirements of particular projects, and then synthesize an action plan that will meet those needs is absolutely essential for a successful computer and information systems manager. Most computer and information systems managers develop these skills with several years of work experience, and many also have college or graduate degrees as well.

Below are some employment trends for Computer or Information Systems Managers:

  • Median wage: $70.37 hourly, $146,360 annually
  • Employment: 414,400 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Much faster than average (11% or higher)
