I've taken countless career quizzes, personality quizzes, and more, but after all this time I've found the consistency of such things to be dependent on either my mood at the time or the events and behaviors I've participated in most recently. Most regular personality on the MTBI scale was -NTJ.
The concept of "self-exploration" seems a bit foreign to me and asking me what I like to do is a little bit more complicated in my brain than it probably should be. I tend to know what I don't like more than what I do.
The concept of an apprenticeship and getting out to learn in a different environment than an academic one has been frequently attractive to me. I hate school. In my freshman year of high school I was consistently researching any sort of way out. Eventually I found an alternative exit and I was out by the end of my sophomore year.
When a teacher explains the steps to solve a math problem and neglects to explain the logic behind it, I have difficulty grasping the concept. If I don't leave the math class understanding the basics behind the concept, I cannot motivate myself to work through the homework; it feels like it would require intense, meticulous redundancy I don't have the time or the interest to work through. This goes back to a problem, I think, that stems from the feeling of pointlessness: through doing that homework, I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything. I'm just wasting paper; I'm not seeing any results of my work. I'm not really solving a problem. I don't get that satisfaction that I accomplished something.
Second year in college I became president of the school's chapter of an international service organization and so far that has been one of the most productive and enjoyable experiences of my life. I feel drawn and attracted to the prospect of problem solving, putting my plans into action, and basically having the world as my sandbox.
I find myself irritated when subjected to a different organizational pattern, system, or structure and I often find myself thinking of ways to rework or rewire a given system for my own interpretation of maximum productivity.
On the spot, especially when trying to solve a problem with my club, I can come up with numerous different ways of solving an issue or problem.
I've written a lot as it is and I have some other things to do.
Hopefully you all can help me.
