    Default Sign language interpretor?

    Anyone do this or know someone who does? What do you or they like or dislike about the job? Do you think there are certain MBTI types that this career suits best? S vs. N, for example?

    Well I know ASL and have done a bit of communicating to Deaf communities. I know a couple of interpreters and they love their job. If you like being with people then it works. You can get paid up to $20/hr. Its really great and they're looking for lots of interpreters.
    As for the whole S vs. N thing, I'd personally say S's are developed well for the job only because it involves physical communication and truly paying attention or you'll miss with the other person is communicating. But I'm sure any person can do it. Its just a physical thing and revolves all your attention. You have to look AT the person and not let your eyes wander around and such. I's and E's can do it because its not a verbal deal, its movement. As for the T vs F and J vs P, I really don't think those matter.

    yes Indeedy I do , I'd love to get back into it. It's so much fun .

    I did it for 2years in HS and I actually did pretty good with it. I'm such a shy person I don't like speaking verbally anyway so that made me like all the more in the beginning xD.
    Sign language it's amazing and of course they are such an interesting culture.

    nice one halla.
    What is Feeling?
    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...
    (Carl Jung, Psychological Types, Chapter XI - Definitions)
