You didn't list "Associates" as an educational level. I currently hold an Associates in Theology, and I'm working toward a Bachelor's of Science in I.T. a double major - Programming & Database Administration. However I've been out of school and in the working world for 10 years before starting on my Bachelors. Once I've got the bachelor's, we'll see... but I'm thinking I'll want to get an engineering degree, then maybe master's in process analysis. Every couple of weeks I rethink where I want to go and what I want my education to be, and every time it's a little different (and sometimes a LOT different)...
I plan to do it via the Open University, so I can do it at my own pace. For stuff like law and art, books are really helpful to learn, you won't miss the practical courses that much. Also, it helps a lot I already have a lot of education under my belt - learning at undergraduate level goes at a breakneck pace.
I earned an Associate's first then got stupid and chose marriage instead of continuing my education. I returned to college and finished my Bachelor's in my mid-thirties. I learned a lot in the workforce that assisted me when i returned to college. Perspective, balance, tolerance, cynicism are all very useful skills that can only be truly appreciated in the workplace when you have a boss yelling in one ear and a customer yelling in the other.
Don't give up now. Not if you've already started! I can remember how fed up I got at times, but I do think you'll regret it later if you quit.
I picked Bachelors. I have a BTECH. I considered doing my Masters until I heard our faculty's topic: Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises. Why would I waste a whole year of my life on that? Especially when it had to be that topic with an IT angle...blech. I wasn't prepared to move across the country just for a nice research topic.
Fudging a bit...doctorate dissertation is in process. Coursework is done. I think if my home life was better and if my wife had in interest in what I do, my education would be much more fulfilling. That said, love studying and doing research.
Doctorate is in Education with an emphasis on children learning a foreign language.
So I found this in the INFP section and thought it would be useful for my fellow INTJS. Courtesy of Nova.
Take issue with something going on in society?
Having a bad day?
Have something on your mind that wont go away?
Experience something so fabulous you just have to express it?
Centuries ago Aristotle wrote:
"For a man to live alone in The Wilderness, he must be either a wild beast or a God."
Some 2300 years later Neitzsche countered:
"Aristotle failed to recognize a third possibility. That such a man could be both."

I don't take compatibility guidance too seriously as for me it comes down to the individual in the end, but I can understand the concept of people in possession of the dominant cognitive functions you lack helping you improve and provide you with the perspectives/energy you would otherwise be...
Post about anything creative you made - photos are fun to see! (It'll be interesting to see if anyone posts in this thread!)
Idea shamelessly stolen from the INTP forum, btw. Some neat things going on there - the pressure is on people! ;-)
I love embroidery and textile crafts and crafts in...
