Research shows type differences with hybrid work, office work and stress
“One of the many interesting things we discovered was among entirely remote workers and entirely office-based workers, those with preferences for Intuition (ENFJ, ENFP, ENTP, ENTJ, INTJ, INTP, INFJ, INFP) reported more stress than those with Sensing preferences (ESFJ, ESFP, ESTP, ESTJ, ISTJ, ISTP, ISFJ, ISFP),” says John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership for The Myers-Briggs Company who conducted the research.
“But among hybrid workers, you don’t get this effect. This may be because people with an Intuitive preference enjoy the variety of hybrid work, so they report less stress. It’s one of the many fascinating findings in our research.”
