Social Type Work Environment

Persons having a Social personality type "dominate" this environment. There are more of them than there are people of other personality types. For example, in a hospital, school, or counseling service there will be more persons having a "Social" personality than there will be people who have a Realistic type.

"Social" people create an "Social" environment. For example, they particularly value people who are helpful, friendly, and trustworthy -- who are good at good at teaching, counseling, nursing, giving information, and solving social problems.

Examples of occupations that have a Social environment are:

  • Athletic Trainer
  • Counselor
  • Dental Hygienist
  • Librarian
  • Nurse
  • Parole Officer
  • Physical Therapist
  • Social Worker
  • Teacher

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