Can an ENFJ Succeed in a Non-Leadership Position?
23 April 2018 / By Heather Nocera
You’re an ENFJ, the well-known “Teacher” personality who fights for the good of your people. Whether it’s at work or in your personal life, you take the wheel when a problem needs to be resolved and have a strong moral compass that gets your passengers safely and successfully where they need to go.
Not only is leading others part of your natural talent, it’s also something that you truly love doing. Leadership roles add to your day-to-day happiness—so much so that for an ENFJ, it might be hard to imagine working a job that doesn’t embrace your natural knack for guiding others.
Is Work Killing Your Natural Behavioural Style?
19 March 2018 / By Stephanie Dorais

Shoulds Introverts Act Extraverted to be Successful?
02 October 2017 / By Megan Malone
One of the biggest lies about introversion is that an Introvert, with enough practice, can turn into an Extravert.

Fortunately, we have enough research and information about introversion and extraversion today to know that these are fixed personality traits.

29 August 2017 / By Michelle Laurey
Picture Mark. He goes to work every day, does what he’s told without asking questions, helps his co-workers when he’s asked, and generally, does his work behind the scenes never asking to be praised for it.

The Love/Hate Relationship Between INTJs and Corporate America
04 July 2017 / By Jayne Thompson
It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. No, not Dickens, but an apt summary of the radical opposites taking place between my INTJ psyche and the corporate world I found myself working in for almost 16 years. It's a story of contrasts and comparisons between the massive success I achieved and the desperate, inescapable desire to "get out while you can."
