    Why pharmacy? I feel like I can help people and be of some use. I'm just a little sad that I can't always take more time to listen to my patients...
    Not a pharmacist yet, but just finished my first year of pharm school. I think a part of me is disillusioned (oh no, already!?) but I'm mostly hopeful I can find a niche. There are actually a few INFJs in healthcare on this forum; there's at least one I know of in nursing and another is a doctor.

    As a job, I've worked as a chemistry tutor for quite a long time now; I think education might be my calling if this healthcare thing doesn't pan out (why am I so slow to figure things out? LOL).

    I have my bachelor's degree in finance. I plan on returning to school soon to earn my MBA and work for a non-profit organization. I'm excited to be educated again and to help people.

    I work for a southeastern company as a pharmacy technician and customer service staff. I'm a role model with my customer service job, and I'm a bit of a newbie with my pharmacy tech job, but I am about to receive my license. I also earn extra money on the side doing people's taxes and with my successful financial investments.

    Wow! I'm surprised to see someone else with an interest in pharmacy. I think it's normal that you may be disilusioned after a year. They teach a lot of technical stuff and they don't really talk about the clinical aspects of pharmacy in the first year. Well, that's the way things are in Canada. I remember in my first year I used to miss the social side of things. I like science but I love it more when I can apply what I know to living beings with the specific goal of helping them. That being said, I have to admit that I still get discouraged sometimes and I wonder if it's really the right place for me to me. For instance, I think I would be a good psychologist or psychiatrist. Then again, having to go through med school to be a psychiatrist isn't too tempting after pharm school... Anyways, the only thing I want to say is that I had initially considered a career in teaching before applying to become a pharmacist so I get your interest. Just remember that as a pharmacist, you get to teach stuff and to answer questions all the time. Of course it's a 1 on 1 thing, but it's still teaching. So it can connect both of your interests. There are also possibilities to give conferences. Pharmacists are often requested to give conferences to doctors, the general public or other fellow pharmacists. Not every pharmacist wants that but If you like it, it could be an interesting opportunity.

    Good luck finding what you really want to do!

    My title is residential counselor, but I work in a group home with mentally ill people. I do a lot of documenting, I administer meds and schedule appointments, I help them work on daily life skills and take them out into the community, it has a lot of different aspects to it. I really like it. It's interesting and I love working with people.

    I have an Honours degree in English Lit, Minor in European Intellectual History. I also have two law degrees.

    I'm employed as an attorney, and I think I'm good at my job. Strong Ni makes it very easy for me to see solutions and I am a good writer. Fe is useful in litigating, negotiating - I can always get a read on a room, my judge, opposing counsel, my clients... I generally like it, but do get a little bored with some of the rote detail-work (law can be very tedious). As I get more senior I farm that stuff out to juniors, so I find I'm more interested in my job overall... What challenges me excites me and what bores me I can barely accomplish. But that's life so I'll stop whining.

    But I'm a polymath, and tend to be good at pretty much everything I apply myself to, which makes me feel constantly restless. I write in my spare time (would like to do more with this), draw in my spare time (just a hobby), and have considered pursuing a second career in everything from: teaching, writing, academia, therapy, and even personal training.

    Within the past year alone, I have contemplated going back to school for (a) psych/therapy; (b) MFA in Creative Writing; and (c) PhD in English Lit.

    All of this basically just yields a stunning paralysis.

    I work in quality assurance (good for my type 1) for a global clinical research company (good for my INFJness).
    Yay for you! I had to refrain from jokingly noting my surprise that there were no Anthropology majors . Glad to see you representin' !

    Plight of an INFJ. Sigh.
