Type is determined by factors such as: Genetics - what you were born with Environment - influences from your home, community,

family and friends Circumstances - the sum total of your life experiences

The first and last letters of your type have the potential to change over time as they can be influenced by your life experiences as you age.

The middle two letters of your type are linked to your genetics, which tend not to be influenced by other factors, and tend not to change over time.

The middle two letters have a greater bearing on your career choice, and career satisfaction over the life-span.
