    I like being a teacher of a subject I'm passionate in. It works well for me because I was always trying to collect and share knowledge and experiences anyway. I like teaching music and band to age 6-18, but I also like to study sociology and cognitive development. Teaching gives me a great avenue for personal learning, sharing my knowledge and skills, and helping improve on the society that I am so interested in.

    I like to test sociological hypotheses on the children...

    I would add that one huge benefit to teaching is that I never have internal ethical conflicts. That was one of the worst aspects of my jobs before I changed careers. Hopefully whatever job/career you go for can be the same.

    I am so impressed with some of the jobs you guys have! I tried my hand at teaching for a while and hated it. I was teaching younger kids, and while I loved the kids I couldn't control them and hated lesson planning.

    I think for me I am a super anxious and awkward INFP, and the jobs I have enjoyed the most had some element of customer service and physical tasks. I also like small tasks which can be done in a day or two, and which are given to me, rather than long projects where I have to create the project as well as deliver it.

    I think I would be quite happy as a watch maker or something similar, where I can be a bit creative and achieve tangible results.

    We survive it with respect to history and purpose! The modern transverse flute replaced the recorder in common practice because of the flute's greater dynamic range. The recorder is still a perfectly valid instrument. Beginning band isn't pretty either!

    I am now without a job, but I thought psychology to adolescents. I loved it, I connected with the students and I was free to experiment with different teaching methods. I think my strong point was to improvise and be flexible. Mind you, it was also very draining (but I think in hind sight that was because of the organization not being clear with me wether I could stay or not).
    Now I'm looking for a job where I could write more, maybe course material/training programmes or something like that. I'd like to work for myself a bit more, if it's possible. Or maybe research assistant, combined with teaching... Hm..

    Anything involving creativity and imagination. The problems with INFPs are that the execution skills needed to be world class at any of these "INFP" jobs requires all 8 functions. You have to imagine beautiful and interesting images when using your weaker functions. I imagine secret magical recipes when I check my work with Si and use procedures. I think of buttressing a castle to prepare for battle when I make plans (Te) and prepare for something difficult, and look at real feedback. Emotions with the images help. Fi and Ne of course will have more developed images because you've developed those functions for so long. Even if Si and Te are weak, at least you'll be developing them and it will only get better as you get more comfortable with more accuracy. It makes sense that a more satisfied personality is one that brings what are in dreams to life.

    Honestly, that is my issue, too. Seems like most of these jobs require some form of customer service. I don't take jobs sonetimes for the sole reason that I think lost of customer interaction would take place. I went through a depression for almost a year because I had a job that was nothing but customer service. I want something that isn't routine either though. I enjoy being given tasks but having the freedom to choose which ones I want to work on that day.

    So, I've still been doing some soul searching, and I recently did my research on Human Resources. The place I work at provides awesome pay up to 70k for job positions like that and they are very for moving employees up. I want to talk with the HR person there to get a better idea of what they do before diving in like I tend to do, but gosh I get so nervous and overthink. Like I act as if she is going to wonder who is this girl she doesn't talk to over here asking her all these questions lol. And even at a young age I did always say being a psychologist or counselor seemed like something I'd enjoy and maybe that or an elementary teacher (preferably and art teacher) would be interesting? Ah I hate that I have too many options but so little time to achieve much.
