MBTI® Test ISTP Forest and Conservation Workers
Strong Interest Inventory® General Occupational Theme Code: Realistic, Conventional, Investigative (RCI) (GOT)
Your Myers-Briggs Test Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality type can help steer you in the right direction toward a career that fits your individual qualities. Many careers align with specific MBTI test types, and by choosing an occupation that matches with your type, you can ensure that your personality preferences are being harnessed effectively. For example, many Introverted-Sensing-Thinking-Perceiving (ISTP) types find themselves working as forest and conservation workers, as their reasonable, fact-oriented mindsets help them make informed decisions and conclusions about the natural world.
Forest and conservation workers act as the keepers of the natural world, working to grow, preserve, and protect natural areas. Much of how this is accomplished involves physical labor and includes tasks such as growing, maintaining, and moving seedlings; battling pest, bugs, or any other threats to the homeostasis of an area; and constructing systems or frameworks that help control potential natural issues, including flooding, erosion, or leaching of soil. Because of the broad nature of this occupation, individuals who make a career as a forest and conservation worker often go by many names, such as forest aide, field laborer, conservation officer, reforestation worker, seedling puller, or even geographic information systems coordinator.
On a typical day as a forest and conservation worker, individuals may find themselves choosing or trimming trees for/to specific measurements; investigating the source of a natural disease and finding a solution (insecticide, herbicides, etc.); helping combat forest fires or executing routine burning tasks; and other forest maintenance work. Some heavier machinery is necessary for these tasks, so workers in this occupation often use a variety of tools, such as saws, ladders, sprayers, weeders, and others.
To shine in this career, a background or knowledge of geography, government, and biology is extremely helpful (and occasionally mandatory; many forestry companies require a Bachelor’s degree). Education in other areas, including human resources, electronics, customer service, and administration are also necessary for excellence in one of these positions. Similarly, various mental and physical skills, such as critical thinking, proficiency, strength, adept problem solving, and good judgment are important for the safety of others, oneself, and the planet.
