“I” personality types, your mind is constantly on. You’re always seeking mental stimulation, usually through interactions with people. You thrive in social situations and live in a “big picture” mind space. As a job seeker, you’re more likely to shine during an in-person interview where you can showcase your excitement and innate people skills. As an employee, you’re more likely to be future-focused and a creative problem solver. Additional “I” traits include imaginative, positive, and energetic.
As a “S” personality type job seeker, you’re more likely to highlight your accomplishments in teamwork. You prefer to take a supportive, but still integral, role. You’re more likely to be a great listener and are genuinely interested in people and work relationships, so as an employee, your role might have managerial support aspects. You have a keen eye for workflow gaps and solutions to fix them! Other “S” traits include sincerity, logistical, and honest.
If you’re a “C” personality type, there’s a high chance that, as a job seeker, you take your time perfecting your resume and submitting thoughtful cover letters. You’re likely a perfectionist, which means you are looking for the right dental job, not just any dental job. This perfectionism plays a part in your role as an employee, too; you strive for accuracy and neatness. You’re task-oriented and take time to make sure each one is done right the first time. More “C” traits include concise, independent, and level-headed.
