  1. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    As an ENTP, I can't stand to spend the time to deeply master any one thing. Some recent interview experiences make me feel like this is a flaw. I was thinking about the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" but later learned that I've been misusing it. The original quote is: Jack...
  2. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm starting to look for a possible career change and I was wondering: What's the ideal job description for an ENTP?
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey guys, I was just wondering if any INFPs on here that have had a job as a camp counselor? And if so, if you could tell me about what it was like? I really wanna do it for my summer holidays but I'm worried I'll be too much of a softie and the kids will walk right all over me. PS: any tips...
  4. Education & Career Talk
    So I'm barista at Starbucks. Since the story I'm about to share pertains to my job, I thought I'd post it under Career. Customer service and food service employees put up with a lot. But everyone has that one thing that really tips them over the edge. Tonight I just gave up trying and...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hey guys! I've recently found myself in a weird situation (well, weird to me). I'm an INFP and I just got promoted to a management position at my job. I have no experience in management and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I've heard that you guys are naturally good managers so I was...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Anyone living their dream right now? I mean doing stuff people consider as a career you really into. Or living so-called passion. Tell me a bit, or a lot (preferred) about how you find, meet, grow, make it happen! please :)
  9. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So, yeah. I am having a pretty bad day. I am about to do something that ultimately I will dislike myself for even more, but it has to be done. I am going to get someone fired. This employee is one of those guys that has 20+ years with the company and feels like he is bullet proof. He has a great...
  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Dear fellow INFJs, and other types, It's not common for me to seek help but desperate times call for desperate measures I suppose. And what can be better than a forum full of INFJs? (rhetorical question). I graduated from my business school and started a job in financial controlling a few...
  11. Member Polls
    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'.
  12. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi dear community, I don´t know what else I can do than writing my huge problem to you, because my parents are not listening to me and my friends do not too, if I tell them about me I got nothing more than "k" or "nice". I don´t want to say that they must help me, I should fix my problems for...
  13. Education & Career Talk
    I'm a 9w1 INFP in high school, trying to figure out what I should do with my life. Currently, I'm very interested in international relations or foreign service as it would enable me to work with people hands-on to help them solve all kinds of problems and discover the different perspectives and...
  14. Myers Briggs Forum
    My boss is really grumpy 90% of the time. I'm a waitress and he owns the restaurant. He yells constantly, complains all the time, says mean things to us waitresses and sometimes he threatens (although he would never act on these threats) I only started working here three months ago and I've seen...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi to everyone here reading this :) I don't know if there's already a thread about INFP and their types of job, I think yes but I didn't bother, sorry ahaha :tongue: Anyway, I would like to ask, what do you think an INFP would react working in an office? I'm asking this because I started...
  16. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I'm an ISTJ working with an ENFP. Yes, I work in child care and it's at a Montessori School so you know automatically the ENFP will probably get the upper hand at this. She started a few months after I started at this job and she was placed in my classroom as the head teacher, replacing the...
  17. 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...
  18. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    To start with I am not stupid. I always had excellent grades in school and during the bachelor years at the university. But again, grades are nothing. I am 25 years old now and I don't feel that I am as intelligent as I were years ago. After I've finished high school I struggled in deciding...
  19. Education & Career Talk
    Thought this was a good post to share -- a timely one as well considering two of my friends are having a hard time finding work: I think the author missed one, though. A lot of people don't prepare for interviews and, as a consequence, get blindsided by tough questions.
  20. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So, I am currently a Real Estate Agent which is supposed to be the LEAST likely job for me. I'm finding the conflict difficult, but I think it's been so valuable to me to learn how to cope with it and over come it. It's also exercising my Ti which is great. I am much more to the point now when...
