I'm really struggling with XSTJs of the world right now. I once heard them being referred to as the "thought police" which has been hurting me lately.
I am struggling in my career. I know that I have a lot of great qualities that employers are looking for, I just have a hard time articulating it. I know that I don't belong in marketing and advertising (the worst field possible for those of us that seek authenticity) but I have been stuck for a year now. Not to mention in New York...
So the only two friends I have made since moving to New York are an ISTJ and an ESTJ. They are both shooting down my ideas (they are called ideas for a reason! All good things start from ideas) about going in librarianship. They say there's no money, no job prospect, etc. But I don't want to go back to school simply because I am aimless. I truly want to be a librarian. I always have. I've just had to work really hard for every single opportunity that comes my way. Timing is everything. Besides, the XSTJs live with their parents! At least I have my own apartment and know how to balance the budget.
I just want more out of life. I want to feel appreciate, helpful and authentic. Why do the XSTJs only care about money and order? I don't get it. I find them to both be extremely draining XP
