MBTI® Test INTJ Lawyers
Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Enterprising, Investigative (EI) (GOT)
According to Hammer (1996), Introverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging (INTJ) Myers-Briggs Test Personality Types excel in careers in which they can think critically about a set of data and consider its implications. They pay an enormous attention to detail by nature, and can skillfully apply these details to factual and hypothetical situations. While many of these careers tend to be scientific or mathematical in nature, the legal profession involves similar skill sets and strengths. Due to this, and other factors, MBTI® test INTJ’s can also be well suited as lawyers.
Lawyers use their critical and analytical skills to represent their clients and advocate for them either in court or with government agencies. To do so, they must research both the particularities of their client’s case, as well as past legal precedent to construct an argument to win over a judge and jury. It is also important for lawyers to familiarize themselves with the statues, decisions, regulations, and ordinances of their own jurisdiction, as well as at the state and federal levels. Given the case and legal considerations, lawyers advise their clients on whether or not their case should go to court at all, and if and how it can be settled out of court. Once a case goes to court, lawyers select jurors and meet with judges, as well as present and summarize cases to the judges and jurors with the hopes of receiving a favorable judgment. Lawyers may specialize in a particular area, like immigration law or information property law, or may practice more broadly in a variety of different areas. This decision is left up to the lawyer or the firm for which they work.
Lawyers use a variety of digital hardware, including USB drives, notebook and laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, and scanners and photocopiers. Their software may include accounting software, document management software (e.g., Adobe Acrobat), information retrieval software (e.g., LexisNexis), and project management software (e.g., Legal Files Software; Practice Technology Prevail, etc.). In addition, lawyers need to be able to use word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software comfortably and confidently to communicate with other lawyers and professionals.
Practicing law requires extensive preparation. Most lawyers have at least a master’s degree, and the majority hold a J.D., Ph.D. or both as well. In some cases, particularly in terms of medical malpractice, lawyers may also be M.Ds. as well. It is not possible to become a lawyer without a graduate degree. These degrees are necessary to develop the understanding of law, history, politics, rhetoric, and argumentation needed to be a successful attorney.
