MBTI® Test ENTP Economists

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

Hammer (1996) writes that Extraverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Perceiving (ENTP) Myers-Briggs test personality types excel in fields that require high degrees of organization, analytical thinking, and the ability to solve complex problems quickly and efficiently. They also enjoy challenges and urgency of such situations and are thrilled by the technical and analytical skill required to resolve them. As a result, MBTI test ENTP’s often do well as Economists.

Economists provide a variety of services. They collect and analyze data that can help understand or solve economic problems that may concern fiscal or pecuniary policy, or the distribution or production of goods and services in particular sectors or geographic areas. While some academics may be responsible for teaching courses, many economists work with companies, government agencies, or nonprofit organizations to help them better serve their target audiences. They also develop models and standards to help forecast trends and develop optimal economic policies at the local, state, and national levels. Because economists work with supply and demand, their expertise can also be used to provide insights into other areas, like access, production, and consumption of renewable energy and other limited resources.

Economists must be familiar with a variety of different tools and software. They primarily work with a variety of different computers and projecting hardware, since they produce their reports digitally, and then present them remotely. Different economists in different sectors may use different kinds of software, however. Some kinds include analytical or scientific software (e.g., Quantitative Micro Software EViews; Timberlake Consultants OxMetrics; TreeAge Software, and others), development software (e.g., Microsoft Visual Basic), and a range of different internet browsers (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.), and many spreadsheet software (e.g., Microsoft Excel, IBM Lotus 1-2-3, and others).

Because Economists work primarily with quantitative data and numerical analyses, though with a variety of different variables, they need to have a strong background in mathematics, including calculus and statistics, as well as their applications. A solid grounding in computer science and electronics, both hardware and software, doesn’t hurt either, especially since most economists also need to be talented programmers. Furthermore, as with most other careers, economists need to have strong English language skills so they can easily understand their colleagues, supervisors, and clients, as well as communicate their findings to large groups of people in an efficient manner.

Because economists need such an in-depth understanding of a variety of different fields and subfields, most economists have at least a master’s, and some even have a PhD or JD. In some cases, such as those who work in medical economics, they may have MD’s as well. Roughly 58% of economists hold a PhD, roughly 30% hold a MA, and only 8% have just a bachelors degree.

Below are some employment trends for Economists:

  • Median wage: $46.02 hourly, $95,710 annually
  • Employment: 17,000 employees
  • Projected growth (2012-2022): Average (8% to 14%)
  • Projected job openings (2012-2022): 7,400
