Probably the ones that will starve us to death eventually hohoho.What kind of careers are you guys looking at?
Honestly 4% of the 7.4 billion people are estimated to be INFPs, there is simply bound to have a lot, and I do mean A LOT of academic and technical INFPs out there.but I created this thread to see if there are more academic INFPs than I thought.
I am absolutely a creativity junky. I just love coming up with new things. When I was a kid, I used to play legos forever, but I rarely followed the instructions. I was all about making new interesting things. I used to say that I wanted to be a professional lego builder when I grew up. lol. I ended up being a Mechanical Engineer. It was kind of the most practical means of being a "professional lego builder" in the real world. It hasn't panned out as well as I had hoped. Sadly, it seems that it's all been done before and rarely do managers seem to want to take on the risk of starting with a blank piece of paper or trying something new. Meanwhile, I work in R&D and you'd think that thinking outside the box and being creative would be encouraged... yet, it seems that we always just take existing things and tweak them to maximize how well they work. So, it becomes a lot of data crunching and boring numbers. Sometimes that is not all that bad because I am pretty well balanced on the right brain / left brain spectrum. I like numbers and science. Sometimes though, the lack of feeling really depresses me. Tweaking designs of inanimate objects can sometimes feel cold. Especially since the equipment I work on has quite a disconnect from the standpoint of helping people. Plus, the people I work with are just very factual and business centered and I often feel like a fish out of water and feel VERY misunderstood.I wanna be a hairdresser and stylist, but photography sounds fun too. Oh and i like to write. I basically like anything creative... I assume most INFPs are the same, but I created this thread to see if there are more academic INFPs than I thought.:laughing:
