    Default What careers would you suggest to someone with these traits?

    * I definitely don't really care for constant interaction with others.

    * I'm rather low-key. Do not like extreme structure, I'd prefer to be able to
    be my NP self haha. I don't mind 5-6 days a week 9-5 so on and so on. More at the actual job site. I'd prefer autonomy, not having some boss over my head every two seconds.

    * Oh just to add I find Fast paced, "extreme" structure or more always having some boss glued to your hip is stressful for me. Also having one way to do something and it not continuing to change when someone else is leading is pretty nice haha. Helps with learning how to do the job but also having flexibility. So flexibility with somewhat of a clear line of what and how I do something. Cause it is irritating when I learn one way and then the next time i'm told another way. Makes it hard to absorb the material as I tend to like to learn by routine memorization. Just makes it easier.

    * Don't like fast paced environments so much *:steam:* as it's not me. I'm more of a observer and steady paced maybe even slow at points.

    * I do tend to love solitary areas where I can just be alone to do my job. Really whatever let's me just be alone and still contribute. Love silence to the max.

    * I'd love something that would have me alone, dealing with something that require observation and solitude. Preferably not much interruption or fast paced crazy-ness for the most part. I'd like to know I'd have purpose in what I'm doing too as i'm pretty sure everyone desires this.

    * I really like the idea of Archivist or Media Catologer for these reasons but that's alot of years in school heh and expensive. It would have purpose but if I'm understanding it's duties correctly it'd be perfect for most things I want in a career except all those years in school but then again I'd love that too. It's the money "Curse you money" *raises fist xD*.

    Well even though I might have posted a thread on here before about career direction or was that my blog? XD. Anyway if anyone has an idea about Careers one can get with these factors in mind and maybe taking no more then two-three years in school?

    Or if anyone's up for it, perhaps show a simple list such as these are careers that would take 2-3 years to get that somewhat match criteria...". Then listing some for ones that maybe match it that would take 4 years/6 years etc. If anyone's up for it of course .

    But mostly focusing on 2-3 yrs.

    Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time out to read or read and answer this little post of mine. I'm struggling so hard to find options for careers that I feel are tailored to my needs. I feel like I can't smile cause I wonder is there a career out there for me somewhere?

    I've got some in mind generally but as usual my vice is I need more information but with in mind to hopefully narrow it down for once and not sprout off a thousands other possibilities yet to get no where .

    Thanks again .
    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...

    1. Work towards opening up a small, neighborhood bookstore. You can hire a college student to handle customers at peak hours. Have a little office in the back where you can do some planning, ordering, inventory related stuff, keeping the books, etc. During non-peak times, you will need to be at the counter, but while people are browsing (sometimes there won't even be any customers if it's really small) you can read a book or do some of the above mentioned duties.

    2. Work towards becoming a college instructor/professor at a local community college. Sometimes you only need a Master's degree (not necessarily a Ph.D.). Choose a subject that you enjoy.

    3. Rediscover the dream you've always had deep down inside and just go for it.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I am a big fan of the endless possibilities approach. Can you identify a degree which will open up a pathway forward, but not limit your options? In the short term get internships or part time jobs in those places to gain experience?

    No degree is required to open your own business. Desire, passion, and a little perspiration.

    are you sure you're not an SJ?

    (contrast that with my statement the other day, "I dont want a fucking job, I want to run the company...*other person speaks*...experience? this will BE a great experience!" )

    seriously, stop thinking like someone who's been stuck in the institution of school . School is horrible at training people to think. In school, they give you problems and you then have to come up with solutions. To make it easy, the school picks the problem for you, so that everyone can work on the same problem and be graded easily. IRL, the solution is the easy part, THE QUESTION, ah the problem to be solved: THAT is where people make millions, create value and run companies...by figuring out what problems need to be solved! (once you answer that, what you need to do answers itself)

    haha... And I was just thinking how I'd prefer to get an education as it would give me preparation prior to beginning actual future career ... hehe.
    For an NF my Si is pretty developed and I was raised by SJ mother and sis is also SJ . Don't hit me Babylon XD if the first thing I say in regards to a bookstore would be ' How would i start one? I've never done it before." XD. Mother has rubbed off on me I believe.

    Hmm.. figuring out the problems that need to be solved. You mean in reference to Career search * though I understand this can be applied everywhere in life just more for the situation i'm in for the sake of the thread LOL*

    You are so right BC, I hate to think I'm handing my mind over lol.

    I'm thinking i'd want to discuss with a counselor the career choices of Criminology " Crime Lab technician working with either documents or Fingerprints perhaps. Library catologer to investigate that further too.

    Well all these are great suggestions and I love them Thankies Babylon Candle and everyone .
