Work Environments and Tasks Where This can be Beneficial

Workplaces that are more flexible, relaxed, and open to new ideas and experiences may be optimal for people with low impulse control. Here are a few examples that may be well-suited:

  • Creative fields: Positions such as graphic design, advertising, and fashion may require a high level of creativity and the ability to think outside the box.
  • Sales: Sales positions may require the ability to think on your feet, make quick decisions, and close deals in high-pressure situations.
  • Customer service: Positions in customer service may require the ability to empathize with customers, diffuse difficult situations, and think on your feet.
  • Social services: Positions such as counsellors, social workers, and therapists may require the ability to empathize with clients, handle stress and work well under pressure.
  • Project management: Less inhibition of impulses can open for the ability to adapt to changing circumstances and think creatively to solve problems, which may be required at positions in project management.
