MBTI® Test INFP Maids and Housekeeping Cleaners
Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Realistic, Conventional (RC) (GOT)
The dedicated, hospitable and introverted nature of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI test) Introverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Perceiving (INFP) types make them exceptional at specific careers that hone in on these attributes and use them for excellence. That being said, INFP Myers-Briggs test types are often well suited for careers such as in the hospitality and service field, especially as maids and housekeeping cleaners.
Maids and housekeeping cleaners are in charge of a variety of cleaning duties, both in the homes of families and in larger business settings. Depending on their situation, these cleaners could be doing anything from changing beds in a hospital to cleaning bedrooms in a private residence. Usual daily tasks for these individuals could include transporting linens or other supplies; sanitizing areas; dusting, vacuuming, removing trash, deep-conditioning fabrics, and other cleaning tasks; stocking supplies for customers’ use (such as hotel bath amenities or toilet paper); and organizing messes.
In order to excel at this occupation, maids and housekeeping cleaners will need an overall dedication to service and the desire to help others, as well as a keen eye to spot any minuscule areas that need more thorough cleaning. Other important abilities for this job include a certain level of strength (for transporting goods, moving furniture, lifting heavy items, etc.) and a large amount of endurance and energy, as most of these workers tend to stay up on their feet for several hours a day. Furthermore, communication skills are important to fully grasp what is expected of the cleaner and to communicate any issues or problems that they may see. Also, because these cleaners can often be in people’s homes, sensitivity to their privacy is also imperative.
In addition, knowledge of the proper use of housekeeping tools is extremely important, especially since this career requires often prolonged contact with toxic chemicals like ammonia, bleach, and other cleaning agents. Housekeepers and maids often use latex or rubber gloves, facial shields, goggles, and other ways of protecting themselves from harmful fumes. Furthermore, while housekeeping is not generally thought of a technologically-intensive career, in this day and age, maids often benefit from being familiar with inventory management software, e-mail software, and database software, as well as the particular computerized resources their employer uses to plan logistics such as shift schedules.
Depending on the place of employment, many maids and housekeeping cleaners are not required to have any sort of degree, although a high school diploma is preferred.
