  1. Education & Career Talk
    I’ve been thinking some things through in my life and I’ve decided a new path for my life, and I’m going to commit to it, with time frames! I’m going to be a real estate agent. I am good at persuasion and sales. I would like being a real estate agent a lot! I intend to work with a broker in...
  2. Education & Career Talk
    I’m going to work as a telephone advisor to pay my way and earn a living, I’m also going to enroll in a fitness instructor certification course around late December or early January. I want to work as a fitness instructor/personal trainer, as well as earn certifications relating to nutrition. I...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone, I've been thinking about how to make a living in a way that is ethical and aligns with the greater callings and love I have. I do plenty of things that provide this fulfillment that are volunteer-based. I volunteer with a few organizations, both nonprofit and grassroots/DIY. I try...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    (an essay on something I've been thinking about lately) INFPs don’t make very much money. A number of MBTI-And-Income surveys have us ranking dead last among the 16 types, this one from Business Insider has us ranking a bit higher, 4th from the bottom, but still low and also 4th from the...
  5. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey guys! What would be the ideal careers according to tritypes? I'll try to give out some examples on the top of my head with two very different tritypes: 136 → Holland Code : IRC (Investigative, Realist, Conventional) : Police officer, security agent, correction officer, judge, lawyer...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Fellow INFJ's, I'm curious: Where do you work? Why did you choose this career path? Currently, I'm only a high school senior and am restricted to retail jobs (which I LOATHE :mad-new:). Once I graduate, I will be attending college to double major in public health and psychology :smile-new: I...
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I got a new job—yay! Still a band directing and elementary job, like my previous one, but I will be the only music teacher in the school district. I think it will be better for me because I hated working with the lead band director at the other school. Now I am (somewhat) free to do what I want...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I know I'm only asking for opinions. But I've read, for example in the "Please Understand Me" series, that INFPs are not really attracted to commerce, sales, marketing. But here's the thing: in my personal life (so only anecdotal evidence here) the INFPs I know are outright suspicious of me...
  9. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I'm a 20 year old ISTJ woman, currently studying communication/media studies (bachelor). Before going to uni, I thought I was interested in this field (not so much the creative side like making radio or TV reports, but more PR or media management). However, by now I've gained a bit more...
  10. Advice Center
    Hey there. Recently i posted in advice area that i was dealing with too much pressure on my career. Which made me think about everything i have been pursuing those last years. I started living full time on music like around 4-6 months ago. I started 4 years ago and i'm doing well. I play nice...
  11. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    What kind of education/career paths have you been drawn towards or tried? So far I've dabbled in Psychology, English Literature, Philosophy, Graphic Design/Audio-Visual arts. I am currently very interested in Biomedical Sciences and like to idea of helping people through science, but I'm not...
  12. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This isn't meant to be insulting, but why would a business hire an INFP? It seems like other personalities fill roles much better than INFPs do. I don't have problems getting work. During interviews I can't really focus on my INFP strong points too much. Perhaps it is just the jobs that are...
  13. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello everyone. I am here today because I am a 27 year old INTJ who currently works as a youth worker. I've known I was an INTJ for awhile now and have had no complaints with it, but I have always found it strange that I ended up in this kind of work instead of the ones that are more...
  14. Generation X Forum
    Hello everyone. This is my first time joining any sort of online forum. And I've really been enjoying reading through some of the threads and posts. My reasons for joining are really two-fold. 1. I'm going to hit 50 next year and the mid-life transition has been tough for a number of reasons...
  15. ESFP Forum - The Performers
    I am 16, and although I am young I love having big dreams and goals to work on. I recently had to quit one of my favorite sports in which I had huge dreams for many reasons and for the best. That was one of my only hobbies. So, I am curious as to what hobbies and careers make you're...
  16. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hi y'all! Rather than going into STEM, I'm a musician and have always loved the creative fields instead of the stereotype of the INTJ becoming a chess master/scientist/researcher/supervillan etc. My question: Any other odd-ball INTJ "Scientists" that aren't in STEM fields? How has your...
  17. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    hello fellow INFJs- First time posting and excited to be here. I've been thinking about this for awhile and getting cold feet on whether I should pull the trigger on being a real estate agent. I've been in sales before for 8+ years. I was great at it and top performer, however it drained me so...

    From the INFP confession thread: I went to a conference for new music teachers yesterday. Being around my friends and colleagues and hearing their experiences made me realize that, wow, I'm not satisfied at work! 1. The school hasn't had a full-time assistant band director in ~30 years. As...
