  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Dear fellow INFPs, first of all, a warm hello. My name is Jan, and I am 38 years young. I have come across the MBTI system already a while ago during a conflict management training. Which I took voluntarily, btw. :) I have dived back into it recently, for reasons stated below, and got an even...
  2. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I am asking this because in my case I seem to perform better working by myself, or with someone who is like me (calm, helpful, caring, does not like drama, is not a backstabber etc). In my past I had trouble with jobs where there is a lot of people, is stressful, there is lot of confrontation...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I want to know how you (INFP's) learn to love the routine of your jobs? Unfortunately all jobs end up being a routine with too much details and timeliness that pressure you driving you crazy. Not all INFP's and other personality types make good choices of jobs and then realize they were meant to...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've found that unfortunately that in most jobs, even in some creative works also (so not necessarily all 'corporate/office' works), you can't really avoid such things as: details, routine, and repetitiveness. But in all honesty, these factors are what truly hindering me from wanting to commit...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So, I just got done with an hour and a half phone call with my parents about switching majors. I think I scared them because I told them I was switching from Radio, Television and Film to Psychology. They really don't believe that there are actual jobs out there in psychology and they think it's...
  6. Education & Career Talk
    Kathy Sierra: Brain Death by Dull Cubicle I've actually been reading a lot lately about Elizabeth Gould's work, since i recently started a job* that returned me to the cubicle world after some time away from it. My view is that most firms, in the interest of expediency, don't realize what...

    I think the actual words I used with the love-of-my-life this morning were as follows. Do you really think many people truly love or even like what they do? Of course this came after complaints of not wanting to go to work. Our Monday frame of mind is not always a positive one. However, we...
  8. Education & Career Talk
    It's so hard to find anything about the topic on the Web, because we tend to shy away from thinking about managing other people. I used to think like that too, but then i realized how much a good or bad manager does to make other people's lives more or less fulfilling. In contemporary society...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    do you like your job? why or why not? it seems like it's very rare for people to be happy with their occupation. to be honest, i'm not sure there's anything i actually enjoy doing. simply put; i like doing nothing. it's okay if my television or my laptop isn't on, i like just being able to sit...
  10. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    can we?..any INFP have managed to DO it successfully? (ie: starting, developing, and running a new business)??.. I am really feeling trapped at the moment, basically, I'm now 29 yrs old, still practically jobless, and unfortunately I'm so 'undisciplined' in my Music works too, that it also...
  11. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    HELP! I hate my job(s)! ALL OF THEM!! I've spent the afternoon and evening today reading other posts of ENFPs and I have to say, I never knew there were so many of ME out there... :) I feel like I'm no longer crazy for having some of the life-issues that I've had in years past, seriously. Which...
  12. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I have no idea what type of part-time job I should pick. Thanks if you can help!
  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Well I think it's safe to say that no one dreams bigger than us INFPs. What's your dream job/career? Is that what you're doing now/on the way to achieving? Or is it something you'll be keeping in the deep dark fissures of your mind...? My dream is to front an electro band. Too bad I can't...
  14. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    So, I am definitely new at this forum and the fact that I am an ENFP. Do any of you guys ever find it difficult to find a career/ occupation that you feel suits you properly. I have a natural nack for artistic things that tend to get me nowhere. I get excited about things easily then tend to get...
  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Do you reckon there is an ideal job for an ENFP? Do you have this job? If not what job do you reckon would be good for you? Im currently doing my psychology degree and feel like this fits my personality really well. I love working with people and would hate to be stuck in an office working on...

    My failed attempt to move to Iceland resulted in me living with my mother looking for a job again. I feel a tad bit guilty for turning down the job offer that craved that I go from door to door to talk about safety, or something. I read somewhere that INTJs are hypersensitive to rejection...

  18. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I'm a little reluctant about being hired for a job offer by a friend of the family. I guess perhaps I need advice/encouragement from you guys out there. What this lady is asking for is I can work from home (which I would hate doing, but oh well) and she'll pay me $8 an hour. A list of...

    Is it possible that I am really an INFP as the quizzes show the majority of the time? Is it even possible that I am an INTP as they have shown lately? Either way, I have really noticed that since I got sober over two months ago, I have not acted a whole lot like an introvert. And my randomly...
