The investigative type is one of the six personality types included in the Holland Code model of personality.
Investigative types tend to be analytical, logical and data-driven. Investigative types tend to enjoy solving complexed problems using mathematics and science.
Due to this, investigative types are likely to be satisfied in careers as an actuary, engineer or as a professor, as these careers are data-driven and involve complexed problem solving.
It is important to note, that although you may share the most preferences with the investigative type, you are very likely to share interests with the other personality types. The Holland Code ranks how you relate to each personality type to give you one of 720 unique personality types.
Investigative types are best suited to careers that allow them to problem solve, be analytical and focus on data. This is most likely to be a career in science or mathematics, such as an actuary, engineer, professor, computer programmer or biologist.
Investigative personality types are more likely to struggle in careers that are not data-driven or complexed. This may include careers such as a sales person, real estate agent or travel agent.
