Leaving the Law

The Other Key Lawyer Personality Trait: Think, Don’t Feel

The Thinking/Feeling preference in the Myers-Briggs typology is a biggie for happiness and satisfaction at work. If you’re a Feeling type and a lawyer, you’re probably miserable. That’s why knowing whether you’re a Feeler or a Thinker is important to assessing whether to stay in law.

Key Lawyer Personality Trait: Are You a Sensing or Intuitive Type?

The two middle traits of Myers-Briggs typology (Sensing/Intuitive and Perceiving/Feeling) are the keys to satisfaction at work, whether you’re a lawyer or a carpenter. When your preferences in those two areas are in synch with the type of work you’re doing, you will feel more fulfilled and in harmony. Sounds kind of important to me.
