The Fast Company Design Blog highlights an interesting study that examined designers’ Myers-Briggs personality tests to look for commonalities.
According to the test, those that “intuit” rather than “sense” tend
to focus on context and future developments, rather than simply the
data at hand. Meanwhile, those that “judge” rather than “perceive” tend
to see the world in terms of discrete problems that can be structured
and cracked, rather than as a series of casual, open-ended
In other words, designers are less akin to the stereotypical
touchy-feely artist, and more like engineers who always keep the big
picture in mind.
