    The thought of even working in there again makes me start to avoid stuff. I feel less and less myself and sort of go off the rails.

Most of it is analysis and research, which I'd prefer to do on people.

    I got some pretty strange looks from people when I said I was moving to something new though. Many thought I'd just lost confidence in myself or my ability in the area.

    Ever considered combo's? Becoming a consultant in one of your other interests, I mean..it would give you that people interaction/helping thing we crave as well as allow you to use your expertise in a field you enjoy

    At the moment, I really want to learn more about writing and get into that area, but I also want enough money to work on music stuff. Journalism=1.5 years more study and working to just get by. Consulting=well off and gaining management skills which will set me up for the future. One chases a dream, the other gives me maybe the last block in achieving the comfortable life.

    . I was thinking about a year in consulting to get money then going journalism if I'm still into it. I'm lacking a bit of creds for my course application for Journalism still and it is due on the 10th. The idea of doing freelance or investigative journalism really appeals to me though. Write articles, take my camera. Look at major issues that are being ignored. Get people to take notice.

    Work a year in something you love while working toward something else you love...sounds like win-win

    I can totally understand you...(even if I'm NT), perhaps it's due to shared enneagram type, but people do keep pushing me towards science and maths but I need to be outside and interact with some people, lest becoming miserable...

    It might just be an extrovert thing. We start by looking outward, so locking us in a room and making us think in isolation doesn't really work. The ENTJs in physics were very interactive with students throughout the day and normally had their doors open to all. It makes sense now, because it is sort of a survival plan. I found they were happiest running around and talking to people and getting things organised. Somewhere in it all they wrote the most good journal articles also. Suppose time management skills are worth a lot.

    whatever work you can get that you can stand.
    be realistic, what can you really do... versus what do you want to do, and then what jobs would hire you. if no one will hire you. work for yourself. Would you rather work for someone else or be self employed?
