    I'm actually on disability right now, but before I was a ride operator and I'm an ISTP. I think the two make a pretty good fit, although all the interacting with people gets old, especially when you're screaming for 10 hours straight. I liked it though, and I hope I can go back to it when I feel up to it. My dream job would be writing, can do whenever I want and don't have to deal with a lot of people.

    I'm not working at the moment so I'll speak for my most recent job, I worked the purchase ledger for a tyre company, definitely not an INFP or 9 job and I hated it. The boss didn't help that but I found it really mentally draining and struggled to get to grips with most aspects of it, and I had to call and be called by companies a lot which made me really uncomfortable. Not as bad as my job before that though, call centre. My god. Every day was a waking nightmare.

    My dream job is to be a game designer, preferably a scenario or character director or designer, and pretty much any kind of creative job like that is recommended for INFPs.

    I’m a software engineer which isn’t on any list of jobs for INFPs.

    I like it, sort of. Don’t get me wrong — I do love writing code and creating/debugging software, quite a bit actually, but my dream job is to work for the theme park design industry. They have jobs for programmers, like controls, lighting, or animatronics programming. Admittedly, I should’ve probably done engineering, but Disney I know has a lot of jobs for computer scientists and animators. Speaking of which, I’d also love to use my animation/graphics skills to do technical art and I want to write novels too.

    A bunch of my co-workers are college dropouts and keep talking about how great it is that you don’t need a degree to code, which annoys me a bit because of how hard I worked to get my degree. But that’s subjective I suppose.

    My job is okay, but I really want to get back down to Southern California where I was raised and work in entertainment. Fun, the beach, and no more snow — oh how I hate the snow. Regardless, I need this job to save up for a master’s degree so I’ll be doing it for the next year, yippee lol. And I won’t be getting back to SoCal until 2022 or 2023, unless I get lucky with a summer internship during grad school.

    To be fair, I really can’t complain. It pays well and has flexible hours. But at the same time, ehhh. I have fun at work, but usually spend my lunch breaks looking up Imagineering jobs.

    I work in a research lab, it's not so much that the job sucks its just the people that kinda suck and make the job unpleasant.

    Absolutely not. I'm pretty sure just about every job I've ever had has been grossly unsuitable for my type.

    It says I am good at forensics and detective work. Being good at it is one thing doesn't mean I have to love it. I am neutral.

    Yeah it can get pretty exciting every once a while say when we were helping the government going after someone(s) who allegedly worked for someone I can't possibly name who was also being investigated by the UN Security Council but most of the time (99%) they are chores. Punching in reports, reading reports, talking to people, asking questions, listening to lies, open up boxes of documents with running cockroaches and rat shit in them and make photocopies, read the photocopied document with rat diarrhea on it and try to figure out whether it is a 6 or an 8..... Drafting business letters, dealing with lawyers who love to ask stupid questions and have problems with basic arithmetic and common sense and charge you for it...

    Probably not, but I can use my Fe well enough that it doesn't cause a problem. Actually its probably very good to have Ti and Se high up there for what I do.
