In case you think it’s going to get easier to find “THE CAREER” as INFP, there’s a good chance that “The Question” will never go away completely. Nearly 21 years ago now, (I’m 43 now, that makes the following post: “Kenneth Udut at 22 yrs old”)
I found a post I made to a mailing list. Those careers it identified? Definitely “me”. Did I ever become any of them? Yes, just not for money. I do all of those things with every breath I take, every move I make. The mistake I made was trying to pigeonhole myself into doing it for money. You don’t _have_ to make money doing what you’re good at. You can just… do them. grin emoticon
This is related to my search for a career…
I took the Myer-Briggs personality test. I used a 165 question test that
I downloaded from a local BBS. (it was put together from a psychologist
guy in California a few years ago).
According to the results, I am an INFP – Introvert, iNtuition, Feeling,
Perceiving. Suggested occupations were: Psychologist/counselor,
minister, or teacher – all jobs I’ve been thinking heavily of!
I checked out Music Therapy as a possibility. No dice. In other words –
I didn’t care much for it, really… ’tis a shame – seems like a perfect
match, but it isn’t.
Are others familiar with the Myer-Briggs test?
