"She explains that a competent and talented manager’s motto sounds something like this: “I want, I can, I always have plenty of energy to do things.” People of this type cannot live any way other than managing something all the time. Such people easily handle problematic situations, they are practical thinkers. Also, they easily handle numbers and handle resource management.
Only six types of people out of sixteen can become successful businessmen. An entire set of in-born characteristic traits decide whether or not a person becomes a successful businessmen in the future. These traits are cultivated throughout a person’s life along with relevant knowledge and skills.
However, every other type of personality also has its own advantages and skills. Representatives of specific personality types that can potentially become good journalists, psychologists or photographers cannot become good managers. A charismatic teacher cannot work as a good financier.
“If a person learns his personality type, it would be easier to select the areas he can apply his skills to their full potential. Of course, many personality types can become managers of small companies. But is its important to keep in mind specific areas of expertise”, – she says.
She makes a reliable point. For example, ENTjs are the perfect stereotype of a businessman - restless, always wanting to work and manage, numbers-focused, etc. ENTjs are definitely born to succeed in business.
If an ISFp or an INFp had to compete against an ENTj in a general sphere of management and entrepreneurship, the ENTj will win most of the time. (Yes, there are the rare exceptions where if an ISFp were designing clothes or art and then selling it, then the ISFp would win).
What are the 6 types she's talking about?
At first I thought it was the 6 central quadra types (excluding ESI and IEI) which are EIE, LSI, SLE, LIE, SEE, and ILI from http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...ss-Competition.
I definitely agree with most of them except for EIE and SEE.
If I were choosing the types, I'd replace EIE and SEE with LSE and SLI (because Te > Fe/Fi in business).
I may be wrong.
What types do you think make the best businessmen?
