According to Hammer (1996), Introverted-Intuition-Thinking-Perceiving (INTP) MBTI Types tend to be compatible in careers that are committed to the service of others and that have the possibility to affect a real change in the world. While some of these careers are artistic or more emotionally focused, others, like arbitrators, mediators, and conciliators, focus on language, negotiation, and communication. This can often make INTP MBTI Types gain professional satisfaction in such careers.
Arbitrators, mediators, and conciliators (hereafter, ‘arbitrator’ is used as an umbrella term) are responsible for facilitating the resolution of conflicts to prevent the necessity of a court settlement. This saves all parties involved, including the courts, considerable time and money. To do successfully achieve an out-of-court settlement, particularly in more sensitive cases, arbitrators must arrange appointments with the parties individually to identify their underlying concerns and to build a rapport with them. They must also arrange meetings for them to be together in order to facilitate a solution. This may also involve conducting hearings to obtain relevant information or evidence, evaluating submitted documents, or conducting legal research. Therefore, arbitrators must be familiar with relevant laws, statues, policies, etc. and achieve the best possible outcome for both parties. In some cases, considerable application of mediation strategies and techniques is necessary to facilitate a successful settlement. Once a mutually acceptable agreement has been reached, arbitrators also need to prepare necessary settlement paperwork, and authorize and arrange payment of claims.
Arbitrators use a variety of digital hardware, including USB drives, notebook and laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, and scanners and photocopiers. They may also need audio or video recording equipment in order to document their conversations with their clients. They also need to use a variety of software, which may include accounting software, document management software (e.g., Adobe Acrobat), word processing software (e.g., Microsoft Word), and spreadsheet software (e.g., Microsoft Excel), in addition to photo viewing software like Picasa. They also need to have a strong background in the English language, psychology and mediation, government, law and legal policy, and customer and client service.
In order to develop the vast skills and knowledge base to be a successful arbitrator, most arbitrators have earned a graduate or professional degree. The majority hold a J.D. or Ph.D., and some, particularly in cases of medical malpractice, arbitrators may be M.Ds. as well. Under some circumstances, it is also possible to become an arbitrator with a master’s degree, or even with a bachelors if accompanied by significant work experience in relevant settings.
