I've considered it..i'm still considering it. The truth is I have no passion for any particular area of life. I have strong , STRONG desires for security and financial freedom and also autonomy.
I was pursuing psychology and am receiving a B.S. in it but realized I don't want to do psychotherapy and the doctoral training for psychologists is just as long as the M.D. with about 1/3 the compensation, and decreasing job security as masters level professionals (LPC, LMHC, LCSW, MSW) encroach on the profession from all sides.
Anytime I consider other things, like being a career counselor or sitting in a corporate environment doing human resources or marketing none of it sounds much better than doing anything else that I also don't have an undying passion for.
I'm happy with film, television, playing video games, laying in streams lol, I love to sing, and i'd love to dance and maybe act.. none of those things are careers though. Well, you can make them careers if you try, but that goes back to my whole extreme desire for security and financial freedom. Pursuing acting and singing at the age of 26 I don't think would be the best way to attain those things.
With that said.. INFP's.. do we make good doctors? Are there any around here who are happy with thier lives? I wouldn't want to do psychiatry as that's just the drug pushing form of dealing with mental pathology.
I've thought about Radiology, Dermatology, and Allergy. Those perhaps allow you to help people, make enough money, and also still have a life outside of work thus granting me what I want: Security, Financial freedom, and independence. Thoughts anyone? Any encouragement would be great. I know that we intuitive feelers tend to enjoy hearing the opinions and advice from others.
When you have no "passion" do you just pursue the other values you may have then? like stability, income, freedom?
