MBTI® Test ESFJ Hotel, Motel, and Resort Desk Clerks 

Strong Interest Inventory General Occupational Theme Code Conventional, Enterprising, Social  (CES) (GOT)

Becoming educated by the knowledge of your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) personality type can be of great service in aiding you to make an informed decision in what career to pursue. As an ESFJ, your Extraverted preference can be of good value in an occupation such as Hotel, Motel and Resort Desk Clerk. This is due to the fact that Extroverts generally do not tire from engaging with many different people on a regular basis throughout a workday, in fact the extroverted type gains energy from doing so, something that is quite essential in this ESFJ career. Additionally, ESFJ personality types often feel a sense of personal accountability to others and are usually very keen to help in any way they can. This is part of the essence of the Extroverted-Feeling-Sensing-Judging (ESFJ) personality type and another positive ESFJ attribute when functioning in this occupation. (Myers, CPP. 1998)
