It’s not just your education and work experience that affects your salary—your personality plays a big role in how big of a paycheck you bring home, too.
A fascinating new infographic from Career Assessment (via Time) reveals just how much the nuances of personality influence income. The report uses the popular Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test, which sorts people into 16 types represented by four-letter codes—like ESTP or INFJ—based on whether the person is “introverted” or “extroverted,” “intuitive” or “sensing,” “thinking” or “feeling,” and “perceptive” or “judgmental.” (You can take an online quiz based on the Myers-Briggs here.)
So, which type came out on top? ENTJ, or extroverted, intuitive, thinking, and judgmental types, who Career Assessment notes are known for being honest, decisive, goal-oriented, and impulsive, have by far the highest average income with more than $80,000 per household.
