Artistic Type Work Environment

Persons having an Artistic personality type "dominate" this environment. There are more of them than there are people of other personality types. For example, among a group of professional musicians there will be more persons of an "Artistic" personality than there will be people who have a Conventional type.

"Artistic" people create an "Artistic" environment. For example, they particularly value people who are expressive, original, and independent -- who have good artistic abilities in creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.

Examples of occupations that have an Artistic environment are:

  • Actor
  • Art Teacher
  • Book Editor
  • Clothes Designer
  • Comedian
  • Composer
  • Dancer
  • Disk Jockey
  • Graphic Designer
  • Musician

The two work environments that are closest to the Artistic type are Investigative and Social. The farthest away is the Conventional type.
