Hi Guys,

INFP First Post.

Did the MB test and then after lots of research came across this forum and hope to get a lot of info from you all.

I started off life as an investment banker , worked around the world then walked out one day to the amazement of my friends and co workers. Walked the earth. Did an Art Degree as a mature student ( Distinction). Worked in a factory ( Got the first employee of the month award ever haha!), studied photography (as an amateur have had work shown in a Museum, The Association of Photographers in London and also been in the best of show at the International Photography Awards in NY).

Do i have the traits of an INFP ? :)

Still struggling with what to do with my life ! I enjoy photography but dont know if i can do it as a career. Have all the traits of an INFP but unfortunately look like a Russian Hitman - so people take me as a tough loner rather than a sensitive soul.

Help!

Hi Chang81,
I just joined this forum too and I can so relate to your situation! I am an INFJ who left the accounting profession after 16 years and got into fine art photography (I sell photography and digital art at art festivals now) because I just had to do something fun for a change. But making a living at it is extremely hard and quite frankly it becomes work and not fun anymore. A year ago I finally decided what I really want to be when I grow up - a psychologist/ career counselor. I figure I should do for others what I couldn't do for myself. :laughing: Seriously, it seems to be the perfect fit for me so far. I wish you the best of luck in finding your perfect fit!!!

Hi "Russian Hitman", I always believe passion is what determines success. If you really enjoy photography, then just do it as a career. How many of us are blessed to work in what we actually love to do! The passion, the drive is what powers you to ram through all obstacles in your way. In addition, you are having fun!

Personally, I'm a photography hobbyist too, and my friends and family are persuading me to take design for my degree. However, I love psychology even more, and aim to be a psychologist, which everyone is dissuading me, saying there is no market for it, its a lengthy journey with peanuts as rewards, but you know what, I don't care. I know I want to do psychology.

Know what you want to do, and just do it.

Cheers!:tongue:
