Choose Your Career According to your Personality

(Abdul Rehman, Karachi)
People who choose to work in an environment similar to their personality type are more likely to be successful and satisfied:
For example, Artistic persons are more likely to be successful and satisfied if they choose a job that has an Artistic environment, like choosing to be a Graphic Designer in a Production House -- an environment "dominated" by Artistic type people where creative abilities and expression are highly valued.
