MBTI® Test ENTJ Epidemiologists

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Investigative, Social (IS)

According to Hammer (1996), Extraverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging (ENTJ) Myers-Briggs test Personality Types can excel and are good fits in careers that reward their naturally quick-thinking, analytical mindsets, and which place them in a position where they can manage large groups of people to effect change. These facts regarding MBTI test ENTJ’s, among others, help them function well as Epidemiologists.

Epidemiologists investigate and describe the causes, effects, and scope of diseases. They monitor, document, and report on outbreaks of particular diseases around the country and around the world, and often work with local, state, federal, and even international health agencies to ensure that the issues are being dealt with effectively and efficiently. They gather, synthesize, and disseminate research about the diseases, and develop best practices for reducing their impact. To do so, they may work closely with other health care professionals, like doctors or nurses, and administrators at various levels of government. In some cases, Epidemiologists also directly participate in education about healthcare and in determining public perception and opinion about certain situations.

Because they have such a wide variety of responsibilities, Epidemiologists often supervise larger teams of professional, clinical, or technical personnel, and need the ability to communicate clearly and efficiently. This communication and data gathering requires an understanding of sophisticated technologies, including laptop and desktop computers, analytical software (e.g., ClusterSeeker, Epicenter software Epilog, etc.), Database user software (e.g., Microsoft Access, SQL), and map creation software (e.g., ESRI), in addition to the typical internet browsers and word processors now standard in any job.

Depending on their exact specialization, Epidemiologists need a broad understanding of mathematics and the natural and biological sciences, including biology, physics, and chemistry, as well as how they apply to medicine and dentistry. They also need to be familiar with sociology, anthropology, and psychology to understand how more medical or dental issues can affect individuals or societies in historical and cultural contexts. This understanding can also help Epidemiologists develop appropriate and effective interventions.

Epidemiologists also need solid writing, reading, and oral communication skills, as well as the ability to digest large amounts of information and technical data and synthesize it to make relatively quick judgments and decisions. Most Epidemiologists develop these skills with many years of schooling. The majority hold a master’s degree, and almost 25% hold a doctorate. Almost all Epidemiologists have completed some form of education beyond a bachelor’s degree.

Below are some employment trends for Epidemiologists:

  • Median wage: $34.13 hourly, $70,990 annually
  • Employment: 7,600 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Average (4% to 6%)
  • Projected job openings (2018-2028): 700
