One’s Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI test) personality type can help clue you into some of your best-fit occupations. Aligning your personality type attributes with a matching occupation can help you ensure that you are using your personality gifts and qualities in a career suited for you. For example, the compassionate and nurturing nature of Introverted-Intuitive-Feeling-Perceiving (INFP) MBTI types can mean these Myers-Briggs test types could have a very gratifying career as an Occupational Therapist.

The daily tasks of an occupational therapist range depending on their patient, but often include: developing a plan for rehabilitative programs specialized for the needs of disabled persons; helping others regain confidence and skills in various vocational or daily tasks; and aiding others in developing their natural independence after an accident or incident. Occupational therapists will utilize their skills in healthcare facilities, community programs, and other institutions, working with those affected by an illness, injury, or other medical or psychological issue. They perform assessments and evaluations to discern what type of treatment is needed for each patient, and craft a plan in order to meet those goals and help their patients become independent once again (or even for the first time). They act as coaches of life, assessing the current path of an individual’s career and personal life and suggesting tweaks as needed for their patient’s well being.

To excel in this career, occupational therapists require a variety of intellectual and mental skills, including a working knowledge of counseling, psychology, education, medicine, biology, and sociology; exceptional communication skills; the innate desire to help others; and a degree of social perceptiveness and sensitivity to help them further understand their patients. Many occupational therapists require a higher-level education degree (often a Master’s) in order to practice, due to the breadth of knowledge required and the training needed to create an exceptional occupational therapist.

In addition, occupational therapists need to be able to use many different kinds of tools and technologies, depending on the precise type of therapy they are providing. In general, communication switches and braille devices for the visually or physically challenged are often necessary, as well as saws, joysticks, and game pads for various physical therapy activities. In some cases, splints, mercury blood pressure units, and other more technical medical equipment may be necessary, while in others, familiarity with computing hardware (e.g., personal computers, tablets, smartphones) and software (e.g., database, accounting, pattern design, graphics, or medical software) may be more necessary.
