    I do, I do, I soooooo do. It was very difficult at the start, but now I'm loving it . It was worth following my dream.

    I was in a career that I went after and got, because it was my dream. Then I became disillusioned, and since then, have not gone after any career, remaining unemployed, because I'd rather be poor than work in a job I don't believe in.
    I'm male and over 30, FYI.

    This thread title is rather humorous to me.

    I have an extraordinarily hard time believing that any career lines up with anyone's dreams. If your dream is actually realized by a narrow career then you may have capitulated.

    You're the first INFP I've ever heard say anything remotely like this. What is your job?

    Not a lifelong dream, but ever since the age of 18, I've been sure of what I want to do and have been striving towards it ever since. Hoping it works out. As I type this, I'm working on my first application in my desired profession.

    I am. I tried going for a stable career that wasn't something I was overly passionate about. It didn't end so well.

    I haven't read the thread yet so I apologize if I'm repeating something that has already been said.

    This question seems like a different question from the one in the thread title. It is possible to be happy about pursuing a career that isn't your "dream," but is something that will be satisfying enough.

    Career has never been my top priority. My dreams have never been career-oriented. I dreamt of finding a life partner that I can love and be loved by, having a fun and loving family experience, sharing my worldview with my children, and traveling to interesting places with (and without) them. Work has to happen to finance those things but I've figured out that I don't need to be married to my career to enjoy life.

    Well, I'm a video game journalist, and I just recently went to see E3 in person, so I guess I'm certainly on the right path regarding what I want to do.

    I don't know many people who would travel half way across the world for an industry event just for the hell of it.,

    Yep. I have an end goal in mind, I'm working towards it. My current job isn't it, but it's given me the connections I need to get into the position I want by next year. After that, my dream is to combine that position, with the place I'd like to live/work. In order to do that, I need more experience, so I'm thinking it should be about 5 years and I'll make it to where I want.
