*EDIT: If you're reading this before a mod changes the poll title, ignore the "ESTJ" part. It's for ENFP's :)*

Hello ENFP's! What is the highest level of education that you have completed as of right now? Advanced professional degrees (MD, JD, DO, etc.) are considered doctorate-level for the purposes of this poll.

If you're wondering what I intend to do with the results, check out my blog post here: MBTI Correlation Project - Blogs - PersonalityCafe

Tag me or quote me if you want to get my attention on this thread. If there's an option you would like to select, but isn't available, let me know and I'll enter your information manually if possible.

Thanks in advance for responding!

I'm not sure if it was a good idea to answer the poll. Hahaha
I was homeschooled by an INFJ with an IQ of 160, and co-raised by an ENTJ who's also somewhere really high on the IQ.
Of course, I'm not really a believer in using IQ as the all encompassing representation of intellectual standards.. But anyway.
Technically, I have only completed high school..
I am highly kinaesthetic and visuospatial, so college was really of little interest to me.
Instead of college, I simply teach myself a TON.
I am very much and autodidact. Even when I was in school, I thought myself a very large percent of what I know.

Here's where my adding to the poll may skew results a bit.
I study psychology, theoretical physics, mythology, art, martial arts, music, acting, herbalism, and a little poly-sci and sociology... And soon I'll be studying/practicing more martial arts, Japanese, maybe French, acrobatics, and I'll be playing volleyball more often. :D
I play the guitar, bass, djembe, cajon, hang drum, hank drum, glockenspiel, etc.*
And I possess a multi-octave vocal range, with access to the whistle register.

I really don't enjoy going on about myself, but it seemed relevant to the cause.
Many ENFPs have talents that do not require college.. Granted, that could actually weigh positively on this poll.
If ENFPs often to well in spite of the lack of a college degree, that would be valuable information.. But that probably heavily depends on the individual's multiple intelligences score.


*Note: The array of instruments.. Really not that difficult.
Djembe is an easy percussion instrument, if you have good rhythm.. Same goes for the Djembe.
Glockenspiel is fairly easy. Cajon is easy. Duduk requires a TON of air, but once you get it, it's not too bad.

I'm not 100% sure how to respond to this poll; as we have a different set of qualification brackets in the UK. But according to a few States, if you've been called to the England and Wales Bar and have a practising certificate, it's a JD equivalent. I'm currently doing my MPhil/PhD. I opted doctoral level equivalent, but if you don't feel that's accurate, then I guess Masters level was the correct current vote.

Shouldn't there be a question about age in there as well?

A lot of people here are just too young to have finished highschool and there probably is a strong selection bias by age/type for participation in online "share your feelings" forums lol.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thank you to those who've voted on this and contributed to the discussion so far. However, many people throughout the site have noted that this poll doesn't take into account age or the current pursuit of a new diploma, degree, or certificate, and doesn't allow for non-traditional achievement such as vocational school. These issues had crossed my mind before, but I made some big assumptions and ended up ignoring the potential flaws. I've realized now that that was a big mistake that will render any data gathered from here useless. This poll will remain open for anyone who wishes to vote or discuss the issue; however, I will not be using this data for the project detailed in the OP and I will open a new poll on this subject at some point in the near future.

I did highschool and half a one year long childcare course. I don't think I actually completed any of my papers though, and my mum sold all my books so its not like I can just go back and finish (it would be free, although I have a loan for the bit I did do).

I am definately interested in doing more study. I think it would be good to do an apprenticeship in something, do a year at bible college, an arts degree, a business degree, a teaching degree and some other stuff. Lol. I actually have a list of five things I want to do but my mind is pulling a blank at the moment.

I don't know if I'll ever do more study, I have trouble focusing on things for a long period of time. It seems like you need a degree for everything these days so I don't know what I'll do without one.

I'm 23 next month.

All this to tell you that I absolutely love your new avatar picture. Keep up with the great IQ too.

And for the rest. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Behavioral Science and Ethics and am working on a Mater of Science in Counseling. I am one year into the program and have another two and half years to go. And I am old, I am 38 years old.
