In this study an attempt was made to establish whether or not there is a publishing type among occupational therapists. A group of therapists, published and nonpublished, were given the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and then asked five additional questions. The results show that published therapists tended to be Extrovert-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging personality types. They also tended to be older, to have graduate training, and to specialize. Nonpublished therapists tended to be Introvert-Sensing-Feeling-Judging personality types. In applying these findings, students and therapists can develop an introspective view of their potential to publish.
