  1. 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...
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    I’ll start by explaining the situation that has prompted me to think about this question. I work in one-to-one language tutoring to adults in Japan, mostly businesspeople. At the high-end of the market, where I work, it’s a stressful job because if the students are paying a lot of money for a...

    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'.
  4. Myers Briggs Forum
    I have finally (after 48 years on this earth) come to terms with who I am. I actually love all of the inner "stuff" that goes on between my head and my heart all of the time. I love how once I am committed to something/someone it is 110% and with reckless abandon. What I value most comes from...
  5. Education & Career Talk
    Hello all. ENTP here who seems to be in some trouble. I'm in my final year at university studying dentistry. I seem to be having a lot of trouble with the people in my cohort and the nature of my future career. I know that there are a couple of sources that say dentistry is not a popular...
  6. Education & Career Talk
    Recent Graduates! Is it just me or does "entry level"=2-5 years experience now? I'd like to see the input on this. As a recent graduate, being unemployed for 6 months and getting very few interviews despite the near thousands of jobs I've put in for, my confidence isn't doing too great. In...
  7. Education & Career Talk
    Hello everybody, and thank you for taking the time to read my threat. A bit about myself: I'm an 18 year old British male in his second year of university studies in Mathematics and Its Applications. I have a personality type on an ENTJ and my tritype is 6w5, 1w2, 3w2. The reason I have chosen...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello INFJ world, I have no idea what I want to do...what careers have INFJs been happy and successful in?? I'm currently in research, and I find it very unsatisfying. What jobs have you found to be particularly good or bad for your personality?
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    do you think such concept necessarily have to be a reality ? and, an unavoidable reality, at that (like society often dictates, judges, or say)? Or, could it simply due to our (human's) mostly limited mind & perceptions & understanding only? where is really the sharp fine line? and what is...
  10. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Do you think you have a set purpose, do you know specifically what your "dream job" would be, or what you want to do with the rest of your life. I have a hard time figuring out what college I'm gonna go to, what my major and my minors will be, cause I do SO MUCH, for me to be happy I would have...
  11. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Is it an ENTP thing to be irritated by obvious or overly simplistic and platitude filled, or exaggerated reactionary postings on-line - in the name of trying to “create value”? I admit this is a rehashing of something I journaled in a notebook when I was in a tired, frustrated mood about my own...
  12. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Opinion, thoughts, ideas, advice all are appreciated. After I've finished some exams, I wanted to find a job. The next day, I was in the mood, and went to the mall, and asked for an application filling. While I was filling it, by luck, an admin saw and gave me an interview. After a minute, the...
  13. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Just curious to see if there are any ENFPs that are really, truly 100% happy with their jobs. If so, what's your job and what specifically do you like about it?
  14. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi, I have graduated from college 4 month ago, I'm an economics major and all of the jobs offers are working as a customer service representative in a Bank (which I don't like,but I want to work in the banking sector). So basically my job will be working with people face to face all day long...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    How many of you INFPs have heard many/most people often told you (or even scorned, laughed, ridiculed, or better-way: 'advised' you) these words? and then, do you often feel hurt, or even angry, because it seems that these people don't understand us, and seems to 'invalidate' ALL about...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    how to break-out from this "don't have Degree, can't have job" trapping dilemma? I really need a big, major help now. To give some short 'background' about myself and my 'trapped' story of life (or perhaps rather, 'major dilemma') : If there's ONE thing that I deeply regretted the most in my...
  17. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    1) Have you INFPs often feel easily bored? and I mean from the 'mild' boredom, until the very severe boredome ie: you hate how your everyday's life is just a set of freakin' same monotonous boring routines & 'rules' (expected and 'entrapped' by society, usually..) ? And what do you DO about...
  18. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    It suddenly just dawned upon me of one possibility of why us the 'Intuitives' often feel like being 'outcasted' (and btw, this doesn't apply only to the 'Intuitives' , it can also apply perhaps to the 'gifted', 'talented', and/or 'genius' groups/type of people, etc..) : This might actually...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    It suddenly just dawned upon me of one possibility of why INFPs often feel like being 'outcasted' (and btw, this doesn't apply only to INFP, it can also apply perhaps generally to all the 'N' / Intuitives, or the 'gifted', 'talented', and/or 'genius' groups/type of people, etc..) : This might...
  20. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I will turn 30 in just a few days... And this is why I will be super straight-forward this time, as usual, it's about my life again. (it's been a while that I haven't visited this forum, but my problems is still the same,...if not getting worse! especially my relationship with my ISTP...
