Methodology

Researchers examined how susceptible jobs are to computerization using nine variables that affect automation. Each variable ranges from 0 to 100. With the exception of the "cramped work space" variable, a higher number means a lower likelihood of computerization.

Perception and Manipulation

  • Finger dexterity: Using fine motor skills to grasp, manipulate or assemble very small objects.
  • Manual dexterity: Using gross motor skills (e.g., moving your hand or arm) to grasp, manipulate or assemble objects.
  • Cramped work space: How often does this job require working in awkward positions?

Creative Intelligence

  • Originality: Developing creative ideas or solutions about a given topic, situation or problem.
  • Fine arts: Knowledge of theory and techniques required to create works of music, dance, visual arts, drama or sculpture.

Social Intelligence

  • Social perceptiveness: Being aware of and understanding others’ reactions.
  • Negotiation: Bringing others together and reconciling differences.
  • Persuasion: Persuading others to change their minds or behavior.
  • Assisting and caring for others: Providing personal assistance, medical attention, emotional support or other personal care to others.
