I'd love to hear from those of you who have a career that totally doesn't match up with stereotypes for your MBTI.
After some soul searching and research I decided I'm an ISFP... And I work at a community college as their Helpdesk Technician... All day long I troubleshoot PC problems, and if it's something I can't do over the phone I send a tech to take care of it...
love it? use the differences to your advantage?
The only thing I enjoy about it... My office is generally quiet and free of people...now if I could just get everyone to email me instead of call me. It's an okay fit for me though, I'm pretty good at troubleshooting most of the problems people bring to me... Now if someone has a seriously high tech issue I'm clueless and just send a tech.
hate it? wish you were somewhere else? working on getting out?
I'm working on getting out. I'm back in school for Nutrition and Wellness. I'll likely minor in Fitness. I guess all my weight loss efforts have really inspired me and made me want to help others experience what I experienced. I think this would fit my type pretty well... Knowing how I am in a large fitness class, I think I'd take on clients one on one or in very small groups to help them feel at ease and less embarrassed.
