you basically summed it up for me. also i had never given "personal autonomy" a great deal of thought before but i think that's also more important to me than i had realized. i prefer to work alone and do not like being held at the mercy of managers and pointless rules (then again, who does? haha). being self-employed would be good for me, but i'm also not good with details and practical stuff. i went to an artist talk the other day. the artist, who's pretty well-known in my region, spoke about how he just paints all day and his wife does all the paperwork, taxes, etc. i was wondering how he had so much free time to do his work -- guess it's all thanks to his wife who handles the business stuff. where do i find a wife like that...?? lolI think the most common desires for INFJs (and many other people too) in their careers, is to have a high level of autonomy, opportunity to be creative, and a sense that our work is contributing to wider society in some positive way. Becoming rich would be a very unusual ambition for an INFJ, although, that's not to say that there are no rich INFJs, or that we like poverty; constantly being preoccupied with financial worries can really sap the joy out of life, however much we love what we do.
