  1. [INFP] Low INFP Income: The Iconoclastic Factor

    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...

  4. Service-oriented, Project-oriented, and Discovery-oriented People

    Myers Briggs Forum
    People have different ways of finding fulfillment, and specific preferences and needs for what feels fulfilling. While the characteristics are similar in that they all pertain to someone's love language, like affirmation, service, or gifting, they can be defined as being service-oriented...
  5. [INTP] Any librarians here?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Any INTP librarians here? I am thinking of becoming a librarian, some sites say it would be a great career for an INTP, others say it would be bad, boring, etc. Can you share your experience as a librarian? what do you like about the job? what do you hate? do you think it is a suitable career...
  6. Prison guard career?

    Education & Career Talk
    I heard most prison guard occupations don't ask for much besides a completion of high school, and they can offer you some experience thus. How does it work though and are there any other requirements? The part about being physically strong or weak might not matter much since some occupations...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello! I am 18 and currently about to enter my third academic year at a university. My major is English and, like most INFJs and many English majors, I keep flip-flopping on what I would like to pursue career-wise. Back in my seventh grade civics class-- which was taught by a spunky older...
  9. [ESFJ] Male ESFJs, i have some questions for you

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    Like other people have said, i think female ESFJs are easier to spot, maybe because society is not very accepting of male ESFJs ( i think you play your feeling side down a bit because of that), because of that i have some questions: Toward which professions to you tend to navigate? is there...

  11. [INFP] Am I an INFP, a mess, or just a messy INFP?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I'm a new member on this forum. I took the 16 personalities quiz and the result I got was that of INFP. However, in the past I have also been classified as an INFJ, INTJ and ISFP. I feel very confused and misunderstood by not only everyone around me, but even myself. So...
  12. [INFP] How do INFP's choose their careers?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Lately I've been at a crossroads. I used to really be into the idea of becoming a film editor. I used to go to a small school and it was easy to be known for my video editing skills and creativity. However, I moved to a big high school last year and feel that I've lost touch with my creativity...
  13. MBTI, Passions/Hobbies, and Career (fun questionnaire)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I thought of a few quick questions to let people talk about how they think their Meyers Briggs Personality Type might tie into their Passions/Hobbies and/or Career(s). I may answer these myself later, but I'm at work so I thought I would at least post them so everyone had a chance to respond...
  14. [INFP] The INFP Careers & Professions Thread

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    INFPs can be really indecisive when it comes to choosing a career. This forum has many discussions started by people who have no idea what they should be doing with their lives, or asking if career X is good for them. It's hard for us to pick just one thing among so many enticing options. I...
  15. [INTP] INTP Careers-- I messed up. Help.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi everyone. I'm new here. This is my cry for help. Please excuse the sob story. So, like many of you, I spent my life being told I was very smart and good at complex and abstract thinking (true! Things I am not good at: sportsball, emotions, makeup). It was natural for me to be funneled into a...

    Do any ISTJ's out there feel like you are in a job that doesn't fit your personality type? Such as Thinkers in predominantly Feeler jobs? Do you find it hard to act differently for your job?
  17. [INFP] Having a desk job

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everyone. So, I just got a job which involves me sitting in front of a computer for eight hours doing administration stuff. And it's killing me. It's repetitive and has lack in meaning. I feel like a robot. And my brain is drained that it makes me unproductive. I have a blog and I draw, but...

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey tritype fans. What types of careers/majors tend to be good for 459s? I'm an INFP 4w5-5w4-9w1 Sp/Sx studying psychology, and it's really interesting, but I keep thinking about what I'm going to do once I graduate. I wanted to be a therapist, but now I'm thinking that I might be too withdrawn...

  20. [INFP] What kind of careers are you guys looking at?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I wanna be a hairdresser and stylist, but photography sounds fun too. Oh and i like to write. I basically like anything creative... I assume most INFPs are the same, but I created this thread to see if there are more academic INFPs than I thought.:laughing:
