MBTI® Test ISFJ Court Clerks

Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Conventional, Enterprising, Realistic (CER) (GOT)

Certain occupations are well fit for persons with certain mental processes and particular innate personality preferences—in other words, specific Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI test) personality types. For example, Introverted-Sensing-Feeling-Judging Myers-Briggs test (ISFJ) types, with their compassionate yet empirical natures and extreme focus, often have great satisfaction in careers as court clerks.

For a court clerk, an average day usually consists of aiding the other members of the court with administrative and clerical duties such as organizing the docket of cases for that day, obtaining documentation from those being tried, and communicating with other court individuals for information. Court clerks are present throughout the courtroom, acquiring all sorts of documents and financial transactions (calendars, court orders, release paperwork, dispositions, reviews, etc.) for the written records of a courtroom. They also complete tasks similar to that of a file clerk or administrative assistant, such as answering phones, filling out paperwork and ordering supplies. Court clerks are also in charge of communicating with defendants, attorneys, and witnesses on the timing and methods of their court appearance.

A career as a court clerk requires a certain level of people skills, as well as administrative knowledge and an overarching understanding of the concepts of law and government. They must be able to fully understand what others are trying to communicate, and then be extremely accurate and explanatory in return. They must also have reasoning and critical thinking skills to aid them in various areas of their occupation. Furthermore, it is important that court clerks have adept environmental and social awareness, so that they can perceive how others are feeling in the courtroom, in case they need to alert someone of any strange behavior. As this occupation does not require a background in a specific subject, usually a high school diploma is enough to secure a job as a court clerk.

In order to successfully complete their daily tasks in an efficient and effective manner, court clerks must be able to use many different kinds of tools effortlessly. The majority of these are familiar to other office spaces (e.g., desktop computers, inkjet printers, fax machines, photocopiers, scanners, etc.). However, some (e.g., conversation recording units or other audio recording hardware) are more specific to legal applications. In addition, software, like database user interface and query software, email software, and Microsoft office suite are indispensable. Because so much of a clerk’s daily tasks are related to successful communication, these resources are particularly important.

Below are some employment trends for Court Clerks:

  • Median wage: $18.93 hourly, $39,380 annually
  • Employment: 150,500 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Average (4% to 6%)
  • Projected job openings (2018-2028): 14,900
