Which of these is correct:
1-I was always the kind to stick to a job.
2-I was always the kind of person to stick to a job.
3-I was always one for sticking to a job.
(Does 3 mean that I was in favor of sticking to a job, or does it mean I was the kind who stuck to a job?)

All three are correct.

I favor the first choice. (I wouldn't use stuck to a job.)
