Psychology says not everyone is able to do all type of tasks assigned to them. This point is valid for people working in the software industries as well. Therefore, when assigning the most suitable tasks to people according to their personality type, a software development company’s succession rate can be proliferated to a remarkable level. In this manner, the main theme of this empirical research is to find relationships that establish links between personality type and their job designation preferences in the software industry. For this purpose, this study is comprised of 44 Pakistan developers, who are working in different software houses and are directly involved in developing software projects. In addition, an MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) test indicator is used for the link establishment. With respect to the reported results, tester, team lead, and project manager are found to be ENFJs, which is the least common type in software developers. However, for web developers and software engineers, ISFJ is found to be the most preferable type, with an edge over ENFJ. View Full-Text
