Hi there ,I recently took a personality test and scored INFP . i read the description of INFP and immediately realised how closely it descibed me . It seems from my browsing on various personality forums that INFP types have a tough time deciding what to do with their lives in that they must find a way to honor internal values , respect their introverted tendency , be creative and yet also avoid repetetive and menial tasks .I am currently working as a school teacher and I am suprised that it is featured on many lists of INFP jobs as it seems to be much more suitable for the extrovert and in my own experience I feel myself pushing against my natural introspective urges in this profession . I have been considering some other routes which would not be as exhaustive and have considered training to be a psychiatric nurse or a painter ( construction style not picasso ). My reasoning being that Psych nursing is a job where I would be able to work to help people (the healer) and also could use some of the infp compassion while painting would be a job where I would not be challenged to act unnaturally extroverted . Anyway sorry for blabbing , please let me know if you have any insight s or tips about wether or not these professions would gel with an infp personality type .
Thanks a lot ,
