Art Careers by Personality Type – a Cool Infographic

Art careers

I was sent this infographic, and being a sucker for all things visual, I looked at it. The end.

No, just kidding- I think this is pretty interesting- especially if you are mulling over different art careers, or wondering what people actually do to make money in the art world. Granted, I think as with any infographics of this sort, you have to take it with a grain of salt- I remember as a young, impressionable, sensitive sally, I would have looked at this as a bunch of rules.

For instance, if I had a passion for flowers, and I had scanned down the average salaries section, I would have sworn off flowers forever afters seeing the paltry average earnings.

Anyway. I also love a good real-world use of the Myers-Briggs personality test, so click on through to take one if you want to see if you would be a better fit as a sexy art director living in a loft in NYC, or a fine artist wearing the requisite beret and scoffing at the bourgeois.

According to this test, I am INFJ – I am hyper-aware of the fact that I’m an introvert, so that’s never a surprise to me. According to the infographic, I would do well to be a graphic designer, art teacher, or art director. Interesting, but fine artists and craft artist are more appealing to me!

How about you? Care to share your results?

  1. According to one of the tests I am an INFP, which is funny, cause all the other times I came up an INFJ.
