The ISTJ Marketing Personality Type Episode Summary:
Welcome to another episode of the Marketing Personalities Podcast! I’m Brit Kolo and I’m here today with Marissa Lawton who’s a Scaling Strategist for private practice psychotherapists, to discuss Marissa’s personality type – ISTJ, aka the Logistician.
Before we dive into Marissa’s Marketing Personality Type, you need to get to know this woman!
At this point in time, Marissa works with private practice psychotherapists to take their offline private practice ONline in a scalable way.
She reached this point in her career by first earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and then a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. Two very different fields of study, but which make perfect sense when you begin learning who Marissa is as a person.
Marissa is part of the Sentinel tribe, which means…
- She’s order-driven.
- She’s knows “teamwork makes the dream work!”
- She has to start with organization.
- She loooves templates.
Marissa is a practical, fact-minded person, who tends to be extremely reliable. Plus, she can excel at managing lots of things at once, always with an undercurrent of caring deeply about the people around her.
With this, it makes sense that she was interested in Finance – a facts-and-figures-driven industry. And then later, interested in Mental Health Counseling, being that she’s a definite Sentinel, always caring deeply about her fellow humans.
With her personality, Marissa has now found a unique angle in the psychotherapy industry, helping psychotherapist practice and scale online. And being a true ISTJ, she uses highly trackable, digital tactics to both grow her own company and her clients’ companies.
A great takeaway I found on Marissa’s website, which really encapsulates the ISTJ’s entrepreneurial perspective is…
“Empathy and success do not have to be mutually exclusive. You can show up for your clients and your business at the same time.”
