MBTI® Test ISFJ Word Processors and Typists

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

According to Hammer (1996), the most successful people have careers that complement their Myers-Briggs Test (MBTI Test) type. This is so because the Myers-Briggs Test is an excellent measure of inherent strengths as well as personal preference. For example, Introverted-Sensing-Feeling-Judging types show careful attention to detail and an enjoyment of working with other people, though in small doses. They are also able to set and achieve short-term goals with high efficiency, and gain motivation from being given the opportunity to do so. These tendencies among others can make ISFJs a good fit as word processors and typists.

Typists are responsible to using a computer and word processing software to produce and format letters, forms, reports, or any other typed material. They also format their work and confirm that it adheres to style requirements posed by the client or by their organization, including spelling, punctuation, line spacing, margins, and so on. Once they are satisfied with their product and it has been approved, they print and make copies of their work, and distribute it, either digitally or through properly-labeled stamps and envelopes. In some cases, typists may not produce material themselves, but may reformat or edit documents that are submitted by others. To this end, they may need to communicate with clients or supervisors, or run other errands as needed. As with any career these days, typists are responsible for maintaining records of their work as well as of billing, inventory, invoices, etc.

Typists use many different kinds of tools and technology to accomplish their tasks. In addition to personal, desktop, laptop, and tablet computers, they also may use paper shredders for destroying confidential documents, fax machines, photo copiers, multi-line telephones, and more. In terms of software, Microsoft Office Suite (including Word, Outlook, Excel, and Powerpoint) are absolutely essential. In addition, customer relationship software (e.g., Swiftpage Act!, Blackbaud CRM) or medical software (e.g., SRSsoft SRS EHR) can be used. Additional software or packages may be used, depending on the sector and the organization or company itself.

Because of their range of tasks and fair amount of knowledge, most typists (over 70%) have a high school diploma. The remaining 30% have either completed some college, or completed their associate’s degree. This additional coursework gives them the opportunity to develop the strong writing and oral communication skills, knowledge of grammar, and customer service knowledge and skills that are absolutely vital for successful typists to have.
