Any kind of filing or sorting. Medical records. Library work.

It's not entry level, but medical billing or coding is a good career choice.

Billing for medical services. It requires knowledge of several complicated systems that seem to be always changing. It's super-detailed- imagine yourself poring over excel spreadsheets, having to recognize and know the difference between 97802, 97803, and 97804 and other five digit codes. And that's just CPT codes- there are icd-9 codes, and HCPCS codes too. You can correct people who get it wrong (means a lot of money actually). If that sounds exciting to you, then you just might be an ISTJ.

I know, right? The questions they ask at job interviews make no sense at all. How are you supposed to answer that crap.

1)why do you want to work here?
2) what is your best asset
3) what are you most proud of in your life?
4) do you own a gun, machete, explosive devise?
5)do you anger easily
6) give three reference who will speak highly of your work ability and character,

Ronald McDonald? Obama? The guy who pumps gas at the 7-11?

1)why do you want to work here?

Easy question. Tell them you like X, Y, Z about their company. (Do Some Research about the company beforehand)

2) what is your best asset

Another easy question. What is best about you? Your drive, a specific skill, a specific personality trait.

3) what are you most proud of in your life?

Again, easy question. What are you most proud of?

4) do you own a gun, machete, explosive devise?

They have no right to ask that question.

5)do you anger easily

The answer is ALWAYS NO.

6) give three reference who will speak highly of your work ability and character,

This is the only one that could be hard if you have spotty work history.

What about someone who borders between INTJ and INTP? Maybe I could just do bookkeeping.

I read somewhere that police gigs, preferably cops on the beat, wouldn't be suitable for Aspies. Read more: Marc Segar
