INTJ's may have a thirst for knowledge, but it may not necessarily make us happier when we find it. In fact, I usually find it's the opposite. The sense of wonder goes, and a cynical impression is usually left. At points I have been left with the impression that there is little value in humanity. It's kind of cyclical. Wonder->Discover->Delve->Absorb->Loathe->Accept->Wonder. Or something like that. At least, that's what I've found in my reaction to studies of psychology, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, and politics. More hard topics like chemistry and physics might offer less disappointing results, and I can see why many INTJ's choose to go that route.As a side note, aare you sure you're an INTJ? Maybe my perspective/objective view of INTJs is skewed (feel free to corrrect me), however, I always thought INTJs had an immense thirst for knowledge, and will by introverted means do anything to get that knowledge. That doesn't sound like your current state of being. Maybe you've just got so many ideas and projects that you're not sure where to start? Maybe you think all of your hopes, ideas, and projects are unable to be funded properly so therefore are being put-off?
Some of the most important lessons you learn can be completely soul-crushing. But they can be highly liberating as well.
