Conventional Type Work Environment

Persons having a Conventional personality type "dominate" this environment. There are more of them than there are people of other personality types. For example, in an office of a bank or real estate company there will be more persons having a "Conventional" personality than there will be people who have a Artistic type.

"Conventional" people create a "Conventional" environment. For example, they particularly value people who are orderly, and good at following a set plan -- good at working with written records and numbers in a systematic, orderly way.

Examples of occupations that have a Conventional environment are:

  • Bank Teller
  • Bookkeeper
  • Court Clerk
  • Mail Carrier
  • Post Office Clerk
  • Secretary
  • Timekeeper
  • Title Examiner
  • Typist

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