MBTI® Test ENTJ Emergency Management Directors

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

Hammer (1996) writes that Extraverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging (ENTJ) MBTI Test Personality types excel in fields that require high degrees of organization, analytical thinking, and decision making. These MBTI Test ENTJ Types enjoy being in charge, and can visualize systemic or long-term changes they would like to see, often resulting in finding great fulfillment as emergency management directors.

Emergency Management Directors provide a variety of services. They design and organize disaster response activities, like ordering an evacuation in case of a natural disaster, or ensuring proper shelters for those who are fleeing their homes. They also disseminate information about best practices in case of such emergencies to civilians and facilitate that process with other municipalities like hospitals, police, and fire stations. Emergency Management Directors also maintain and update resources, ensure that people can access them in times of need. During the emergency, they are the first line of defense, and in the aftermath, they prepare reports that describe the problem or disaster, the response actions and their effectiveness, and the current status. Finally, they work with other professionals both within and external to public entities to improve the response so future impact is even lower.

Emergency Management Directors must be familiar with a variety of different tools and software. They wear protective clothing, including hard hats, chemical protective boots, and protective safety hoods. They also have to be comfortable using smart phones, two-way radios, and other ways of communicating in the field. For software, they also need to use relational database software like SoftRisk, as well as email servers, map creation software (e.g., GIS software, MapInfo Professional, E-Maps, etc.), project management software (e.g., Alert Technologies OpsCenter, NC4 E Team, etc.), and spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel.

Because Emergency Management Directors do so many different things, they often need a broad knowledge of law and government, public safety, and administration and management sectors, in addition to the public service and telecommunications network experience expected and necessary in emergency situations. In some cases, Emergency Management Directors can benefit from an understanding of psychology, anthropology, and sociology, because it helps them deliver targeted, efficient support to people in ways they can effectively engage with. For this reason, people in this and related professions require the ability to communicate effectively, efficiently, and confident in English, solve complex problems, and synthesize and process large amounts of information very quickly.

The majority of Emergency Management Directors hold a bachelor’s degree, and almost 1 in 5 holds a master’s. However, there are some who hold no degree or have only completed some tertiary education after high school. These statistics vary in large part by the amount of vocational experience an individual has.

ENTJ’s are quite well suited for a career as an Emergency Management Director because they thrive in fast-paced working environments in which their knack for analytical thinking and effective decision making is rewarded.

Below are some employment trends for Emergency Management Directors:

  • Median wage: $35.86 hourly, $74,590 annually
  • Employment: 9,900 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Average (4% to 6%)
  • Projected job openings (2018-2028): 900
