4 Top Jobs for People with an Enterprising Personality

If you are job seeker who likes to take the initiative, there are certain jobs you may want to learn more about.

Research has proven that people who connect their personality types to their careers tend to have the most satisfaction and success. In his new book, 50 Best Jobs for Your Personality, Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., compiles the best jobs for five different personalities: realistic, investigative, artistic, social and enterprising.

Those with enterprising personalities “like work activities having to do with starting up and carrying out projects, especially business ventures,” Shatkin says. “They like persuading and leading people and making decisions. They like taking risks for profit. These personalities prefer action rather than thought.”

According to Shatkin, here are four of the best jobs for people with enterprising personality types:
