Hi everyone, I am 27 years old and multiple times have taken the Myers-Brigg Test coming up everytime as usually an ESFJ but sometimes also an ISFJ. So I know I am an "SFJ" for sure.

I graduated from college with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. Right away I got a full time job working as an Assistant Manager for a small food/book retail store. I have been here for almost 5 years now and was just notified that my position is being terminated due to financial reasons and workforce reduction.

I have always been unsure if business is for me to begin with and a big reason I chose this path was because my father is in business. I have always thought healthcare but I can't stand blood and guts and probably would never be able to do cadavers. I never really liked science a whole ton in school which I know I would have to deal with in healthcare classes though.

My girlfriend is actually in medical school which just seems to put pressure on me more with choosing the right career path. I am so frustrated not knowing what to do...My brother who is a few years older than me actually got his undergrad in Business - Marketing but after going through kind of the same situation decided to go back to school with physical therapy. He couldn't find a job and was unhappy. He is now a licensed physical therapist. So his situation about switching careers is kind of always weighed on my mind.

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated. I would love to discuss this more with anyone whether it be other "SFJ"'s or anything.

Thanks so much.

Unlikely SJ here, but ever think that it sometimes is best to try new things and experience the world until you find something you love? I was a tedious future planner until I started suffering from depression, and while I'm in high school studying to be a networker, I know that it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life.

I feel like Business/Management/Marketing degrees are quite open to opportunity for the job seeker to embed him/her self into something they have a passion for. Most job fields require some form of management system or heiarchy, so find a topic that makes you shine, and pursue it.
