    study what interests you the most, would be my advice... my degrees weren't anything that should be predicted by my personality type and I loved them! I would suggest studying the job market and picking something that would make you hirable, unlike me, though

    I know ISFJs who are teachers, hydrogeologists, doctors, medical researchers and military... meaning that there really isn't too much of a correlation there

    maybe just start out taking some broad prerequisite classes that are needed to fill in the slots for just about anything you study and go from there... you'll probably run across something that you really enjoy

    I'M GREAT.

    HOW ARE YOU?!

    What country do you live in? Because in America all you need is a positive attitude and no matter what you do everything will always work out.

    BTW, at the risk of being an asshole when I don't want to be, I think you're choices kind of suck. But then again, not that I have any clue what would most likely be best for you, or that anyone really even knows what's best for themselves, let alone you or other people, but whatever. Since you are allowing others to suggestively direct your career path, I think you should add more choices to the list .

    I have to agree. Study what you are interested in. It will make your education less painful. I'm in university now and I'm doing chemistry and bioethics (philosophy courses, mostly) as a double major. My majors obviously aren't that related, but I am studying them because I'm interested. I think that is the best thing you can do for yourself. You are investing in self-improvement.

    But you might start studying and after a year or so, decide that you want to change your program based on the courses you've taken, and that's also fine and quite common actually. Definitely choose what you want, anyway, and don't base it solely on type. Some of the MBTI-based career things would have me believe that I can't do chemistry unless I'm an NT.
