    Interesting.. checking back on this thread, it looks like a fairly even spread of job satisfaction across all F/T and P/J types. It's still too early to draw any real conclusions from this though, as the sample size is still very low..

    That's good that you've found a workable balance, where you can use your free time to satisfy your interests, and you feel "whole". Kudos!

    I don't know why I feel like no matter what job I work, I can't seem to be happy for long. Maybe I'm just too idealistic/unrealistic with my standards? If you were to ask me what my ideal job would be, I'm not even sure I could tell you precisely. I feel like a jack-of-all trades, master of none. At my lowest, I feel like my gifts just aren't meant for this crazy modern world we live in, and that I would be happiest living a quiet life out in the mountains somewhere.. but that just seems like a romantic pipe-dream that in reality would actually be a lot of hard work with plenty of stress along with it.. Ugh!

    All I can say is that I want to feel like I'm using my best strengths to somehow make a positive difference in the world in line with my values. I'm 28 years old and I feel like I still have to try things and learn by experience in order to figure things out and narrow down what will make me satisfied in my career. Part of it is from gaining a better understanding of myself, which I owe much gratitude to MB Theory for helping me understand what makes me different than others.. I wonder if most INFP's end up feeling like the have to "sell their soul" to make a decent living, pursuing their creative interests on the side.

    Here's to the ongoing journey that is life! I hope I'll eventually find my calling, so I don't feel like a useless lost soul :)

    BTW I really enjoy reading everyone's feedback on this.. Thanks @sittapygmaea

    I'm the same way. Some of my coworkers are stereotypical government employees and their lack of productivity does drive me nuts. Our workload is not that great overall and if they were just slightly more productive, we'd easily never have a backlog. I could see me moving on eventually and it seems where I work is a stepping stone (I've been told that by my former boss and other long time people there). Right now I have a stellar reputation there and users love me since I solve their issues and also do it promptly. I get along with most of my coworkers except 1. He's an idiot anyway.

    The nice thing is besides the balance is I can go out and start building what I've looked to build. I moved 1300 miles south to Austin, TX to build a mobile app\technology company. I've been going to a of meetups and have met some pretty good people overall. Hopefully this job I have now will be my last structured job. I want to work for myself and eventually just travel all over the place. A normal job boxes me in and suffocates me. I'm just setting everything up to be able to be free.

    ENFP: massage therapist.

    The most perfect job for an ENFP!
    *hands-on
    *people oriented; various people, can get a person's whole life's story
    *various trades (cruise, own business, spa, medical, etc.)
    *continuing education (cupping, tai, rekki, etc.)
    *it's like you're a doctor (BUT you can't diagnose), counselor, & cop (for the perverts)

    INFP. Mixed job satisfaction, I'd say. I hate doing the actual job but I like talking to the people in my team as well as other factors.... it's alright, I guess. The first time I've ever actually connected with people.
