If you work in an IT job, then you’re probably an ISTJ.

Sherrie Haynie, as reported in Why Layoffs Hit IT Professionals So Hard

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is personality profile.  It’s getting some buzz this week because of an article on CIO.com where Sherrie Haynie, an organizational consultant with CPP Inc. (an HR consultancy and the publisher of the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator assessment) was quoted as saying that about 60 percent of technology professionals who’ve taken a Myers-Briggs assessment with CPP are ISTJs.

I’m a big fan of having a team take the Myers-Briggs test together.  Sitting around discussing the results and learning to appreciate the talents of your co-workers is a valuable experience for any group of co-workers.
