An exploratory study investigated the relationship of MBTI type to job satisfaction and career choice in pharmacists. A mail questionnaire designed after the causal model of job satisfaction assessed job satisfaction. Statistical analysis of 216 returned questionnaires (45%) revealed that personality types are linked to career choice in pharmacy practice, helping to confirm past research. However, personality and job satisfaction do not appear to be related. A pharmacy manager who would like to develop superior customer relations may want to take advantage of a pharmacist's personality by giving pharmacists job designs appropriate to their personality types.
