Enterprising Type Work Environment

Persons having an Enterprising personality type "dominate" this environment. There are more of them than there are people of other personality types. For example, in a business or legal setting there will be more persons having an "Enterprising" personality than there will be people who have a Investigative type.

"Enterprising" people create an "Enterprising" environment. For example, they particularly value people who are energetic, ambitious, and sociable -- who are good at politics, leading people and selling things or ideas.

Examples of occupations that have a Enterprising environment are:

  • Auctioneer
  • Bank President
  • Camp Director
  • City Manager
  • Customs Inspector
  • Hotel Manager
  • Judge
  • Lawyer
  • Recreation Leader
  • Real Estate Agent
  • Sales Manager
  • Sales Person
  • School Principal
  • Travel Agent
  • TV Newscaster

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