The purpose of this study was to examine personality type preference profiles of health occupations education and trade and industrial secondary education teachers. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was used to gather personal data and categorize personality type profiles. The four major MBTI type components were: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ, and ISTJ. A majority of the trade and industrial education teachers had a preference for ESTJ personality type. There was an even distribution of MBTI personality types (ESTJ, ESFJ, ISFJ, and ISTJ) among health occupations education teachers. Both health occupations education and trade and industrial teachers were more likely to have a preference for sensing and judging. Respondents with an associate degree and a master’s degree reported a preference for thinking.
