New England Tech Ranked One of the Best Small Colleges

DegreeMatch.org-2015-Awards-Best-ISTP-Match-300x252Exciting News from DegreeMatch.org:

New England Institute of Technology has been identified as having one of the best small colleges for ISTP Myers-Briggs personality types in our recent ranking. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test (MBTI) is the most common personality measure in the United States. A student with the ISTP personality type is someone who is creative, optimistic, and loves to work with their hands.

The ranking considered overall cost of attendance, student to faculty ratio, inclusion on notable lists, ranking by U.S. News and World Report, and number of ISTP areas of study.

New England Institute of Technology has been ranked as #15.

This ranking highlights the top 30 small colleges for those with an ISTP personality.

About ISTP Personality Types

The ISTP Personality is referred to as “the Virtuoso” and considered an Explorer. These are people who love to explore the world with their hands. They are “makers” who love to move between projects and take things apart to see how they work. From a very early age, this Myers-Briggs personality type loves to tinker. Some of their best attributes include their optimism, energy, creativity, practicality, knowing how to prioritize tasks; they are excellent in a crisis and remain relaxed at all times. To some they may seem “simple” or not highly intelligent, but this is NOT often the case. This blend of traits makes for a very enigmatic person who can also be spontaneous and unpredictable. Some of their potential negative attributes include being stubborn, insensitive, reserved, easily bored, disliking commitment and sometimes even engaging in risky behavior. Some of the best ISTP jobs include mechanic, engineering, graphic design, forensic science, construction, farming, emergency medicine and landscape architect.
