    I'm pursuing a degree in marketing with a focus on communication studies. I feel like my business-related classes are a bad fit for me as an introvert with poor social skills, but I do well in both my creative and technical writing classes.

    I currently have an internship in marketing research and copywriting. I don't love it, and I find myself submitting lazy work. I don't hate it, though. Mainly because it's online-based and I don't really have to talk to anyone. If I got paid enough for this, I wouldn't mind making a living this way.

    I type as ISTP and enneagram 4 (yeah it seems contradictory but I swear they both fit). I don't think this degree or job are top recommendations for either type, and I can see why.

    Honestly, my dream job is to become a famous writer.

    Yes! My enneagram type is 2 and i’m becoming a teacher!

    No. I'm my mother's home healthcare worker and I also take remote calls for a business as their secretary. The first seems appropriate, the second I don't know but I do really enjoy the freedom and I'm great at customer service, years of experience. It's very low stress. My dream job would be working for an organization that studies consciousness or NDEs, which definitely seems more of an INF- thing.

    I'm an INFP, type 9. I work as an administrator in the HR department of a large company and I feel mixed about the role. I don't like my job because I work in a very fast paced, competitive environment that has a lot of demand with little recognition, as is the way with big companies. I don't mind the work (constantly being interrupted by phonecalls is the one thing I despise and I spend all day being jumpy that someone will ring me to yell at me) as it's a 'leave it at the office' kinda position where outside work I don't think about anything work related.

    I have no idea what kind of job I do want (nothing in HR though) hence why I've ended up in the job I'm in. My very vague criteria is something fairly slow paced where if I work with people, it's in a more intimate way (like how a PT or nutritionist works with a client rather than loads of different people all asking a million questions).

    Don't let this be you after years on the job only to be made redundant from ptsd or some other major issue.

    INFP and trades.
    It's not really a career that ever comes up under "recommended" for us, from what little I've looked into, but it's not a bad place to be for any INFP just because it's Introvert-friendly (you can work almost the whole day without saying a word if you have to) and Perceiver-friendly, though it seems the ISTP is more the ideal for the job. But it turned out to be "my thing" so here I am.

    [QUOTE=Suntide;43060389]Be it MBTI, socionics, enneagram, or whatever system you favor: Is the job that you are currently employed at one that is recommended for your type? (Example: an INTP working in I.T., an enneagram 2 as a teacher, an ISFP artist, etc.) The obvious follow-up question being: Do you like what you do? And lastly: What is your dream job, and is that recommended for your type?

    I'm an ISFP who is a spiritual director. Such a job is not usually recommended for people of my type. It is usually seen as an N kind of thing, often for INFJs.

    I'm also an English teacher. Education is somerimes recommended for my type, but it's usually suggested as primary education. I teach everyone from 8 year olds up.

    I like this question!

    Is the job that you are currently employed at one that is recommended for your type?

    Absolutely not. I am currently a content writer/copywriter, which is often recommended for INFPs, INFJs, and pretty much any type as far from ESTJ as possible.

    Do you like what you do?

    On the whole, I like it. It's not a dream job, but it's not one I dislike, hate, or am tired of. I am good at writing, and I find it pleasant enough to do for work.

    Things I enjoy most about my role:
    • Figuring out how to make business subjects interesting for readers
    • Playing with words/titles to improve email open rates or blog viewership
    • Discussing how exactly to phrase something so that it's both interesting and catchy
    • Explaining my ideas or concepts to others


    Things I don't enjoy about my role:
    • Editing poor quality writing
    • Dealing with people who promote quantity over quality with writing
    • Sometimes there are just days I don't feel like writing 15 versions of a business email
    • Watching designers absolutely butcher my copy with bad design...this one really annoys me


    What is your dream job, and is that recommended for your type?

    Dream job is art director and potentially creative director. ALSO not a recommended role for ESTJs.
