When I was a student ( Junior HS , High School, and College ) I behave like
and INTP. I was such a geek. A computer geek.
But a few years ago, I began to ask myself what I'm doing here at the computer
job? That was around 9-11 timeframe I think. And I got laid off later.
When I got tested, I got INFP as the MBTI test result.
I took some other online tests, I got INFP almost always.
When I read the INTP description (temperament, character, favored jobs , etc.. )
that was so like me back in school. Reading about sciences (biology, physics,
geology, astronomy) , computers, etc..
But up to a point, once I get into complex mathematical stuff like
linear equations, calculus, polynomials, and other science stuff like quantum physics
my brain would freeze over or drowned in too much complexity.
I never really liked all those scientific papers.
Now as an INFP, I don't read as much computer technical stuff anymore. Or
any detailed complex technical stuff for that matter. I don't do computer
programming anymore. The programming languages C and C++ killed any fun.
I don't know how they become the predominant programming languages over others.
Don't get me started.
A few years ago, I started volunteering and I liked it. Especially if for a good cause
such as Lance Armstrong Foundation, children , MS bike ride, environment , etc..
What to do now as a INFP? As a career path that is. Go back to school??
Can someone tell me what happened?
