MBTI® Test ESTJ Home Health Aides

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Social, Realistic (SR) (GOT)

Your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI® test) can provide valuable insights to help you choose a career that will build on your strengths and interests. Hammer (1996) observes that Extroverted-Sensing-Thinking-Judging (ESTJ) Myers-Briggs test personality types are skilled at organizing people and items, and can effectively establish and implement procedures. These attributes among others can often make ESTJ’s fit well in careers such as home health aides.

Home health aides provide in-house individualized healthcare to individuals in need. This may involve daily care for the invalid (e.g., bathing or feeding patients, helping them move among beds, rooms, cars, etc., providing them with necessities such as food, etc.), as well as taking vital signs and basic health monitoring. They may also provide basic health care or physical therapy, including alcohol rubs, oral medication, basic exercises, and so on. All the while, health aides maintain careful records of patient care, progress, changes, and improvement. In some cases, they may also need to contact primary care physicians or doctor’s offices to provide more sophisticated care.

To provide these services, home health aides must be comfortable using canes and accessories, wheel chairs, and the like, as well as basic health monitors (e.g., glucometers, blood pressure or sugar gauges, etc.). They may also need to use lifts, shower or bath seats, ice packs, and other first-aid materials. In order to maintain records and communicate with families or other caretakers, a proficiency in English as well as the patients’ first language is necessary, as is a working familiarity with smart phones and messaging and email functions.

Home health aides need to have strong active listening skills, and need to be patient as the clients with whom they work may be physically or mentally challenged in some ways. Furthermore, they need to have strong monitoring and critical thinking skills, as well as a service orientation to their job. If a patient’s blood sugar drops, for instance, they need to be able to realize the necessary treatment and then be willing to provide it in a timely fashion to avoid complications. They also need to have strong writing skills in order to keep careful records of patient health and communicate those records to others who are involved with the patient’s healthcare.

Over 80% of home health aides do not hold an advanced degree, and over 60% hold only a high school diploma. In this field, personal attributes such as an inherent concern for others and attention to detail, as well as a willingness to work with others and learn on the job, go much farther than a formal education.

Below are some employment trends for Home Health Aides:

  • Median wage: $12.15 hourly, $25,280 annually
  • Employment: 831,800 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Much faster than average (11% or higher)
  • Projected job openings (2018-2028): 140,800
