  1. Education & Career Talk
    Background I'm trying to understand what the reasons that lead people to this mistake are. Maybe after we understand the reasons, we would realize that they're not mistakes after all. Or if we still believe they're mistakes, we'll be much able to solve them. Here are some general reasons: 1...
  2. Education & Career Talk
    Hey there, I'm an INFP who's sifting through career options at this part of my life. I know I want a job that helps people, is somewhat creative & flexible and yet still caters to my needs as an Introvert. I'm in a part-time customer service role right now, and my emotions on the job varies from...
  3. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi, I’m looking for some advice on career options and possibly life generally. I’m a male ISFJ in my mid-20s, living in South West England. I currently work as a Software Developer. I feel like this is a badly suited career option for me, because I am unable to embrace my feelings and I am...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I don't know about other INFJs but im so indecisive. When I become interested in a career, I will research it and feel like I've chosen the right thing for me, but then about 4 weeks after I'll go off it and think of another career. I'm constantly thinking will this make me happy, be good for...

    I am wondering if anyone has thought about turning their typology love into a profession or have actually done so...??? After years of using MBTI in every area of my life and spreading it's usefulness to others around me I have decided to go for it and get MBTI certified. I'd love to...

    I am a proud ESFP new to PerC!! I have used MBTI in all areas of my life for 10 years and I just keep wanting to know more and help people learn how useful it can be as a growth tool. I found personality typology when I was 23...It started over a back rub! Seriously I asked for a on the...

  9. Advice Center
    So, I am at a crossroad and have to decide a career. There are two options, i) Accountancy & Business, and ii) Psychology. Accountancy takes just 3 years, Psychology takes 7 years. Now, as to why I am asking this, its so because my parents usually expect me to start earning in 3-4 years and...
  10. Myers Briggs Forum
    For most of my life, I've been a strong ENFP, but now that I've grown and changed, my introverted thinking has come closer and more frequently to the surface. I'm about to go to college soon and I need to make some concrete decisions about my major. I wanted to be an actress when I was a kid...
  11. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    If you work as a financial advisor, please answer me: Is the job intellectually stimulating? How much socializing do you have to do? Do you think society benefits from it? How much attention to detail you have to have? How good in math do you need to be? Does it generally fits an INTP or...

  13. Education & Career Talk
    I hope this is the right location for this post, it's the first one I've made on this site. I'm sure this is a common problem for people but I honestly have no idea what I want to do with my career. I don't care too much about material items or wealth, however I do need a decent wage that I can...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'd try not to write my entire biography here... So I live in one of the most stressful cities in Asia. I don't like it here since I was young because I couldn't relate to most of the people here. A lot of them are materialistic and just follow whatever trend it is at the moment. They also are...
  15. Intro
    Hello, I'm a 17 yo girl. I have taken a lot of tests (and it says I'm an INFJ), but I still confused which personality I am. I'm super sensitive, like when I hear this story or just one song that touches my heart, I would cry. More over with some story. I'm a perfectionist, value traditions, I...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone, Hopefully I have posted this in the right spot. I need a bit of career advice, I'll try and just paint a picture of my life briefly. I'm an INFJ male, I have permanent scars from society (I'm hope that doesn't sound dramatic), I have low self confidence sometimes, and other times...

    Which do you think is more important: doing what you love or loving what you do (in your career)? No 'both' option, sorry. I think loving what you do is more important. When I'm adding tags, though, I only found 'do what you love'. Hmm. I'll add 'love what you do'.
  18. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm a business student and it sucks. I don't know if I should transfer or do a double major. I am very interested in so many fields like physics(but I don't like math and I need to take a hard math course to get admitted), environmental health, media film and acting, psychology, medicine, food...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read this post. I've been reading threads on personality cafe for awhile now, and decided to join so I could connect with you all. I really don't know other INFP's, but my husband is INFJ/INTJ (he likes to say that he is INFJ with me and INTJ with...
