I started off in biochem/biophysics, but now am in Marketing. The plus side is I am the smartest person in my group. The downside-good god what is wrong with these people...
Much better at troubleshooting than the NTs-NeTe processes the big picture and can identify patterns that dont match quite right. I can work with a very limited set of data and still make valid conclusions about 80% of the time. I also know what I dont know.
I am kinda bored. I have to have an emotional investment in what I do or I dont care and will then spend time doing things like posting here. I also dont always complete things. Another downside is in being able to see the big picture-I can see the long term repercussions of dumb choices made at the top and thus realize all my efforts are pointless. It's often obvious.
There are two INFPs at my company in lab positions but they dont seem to seek upwards mobility. I just found another very young ENFP female though. She is only about 22, but has a beautifully refined Te. She can use it without any trace of emo and comes across as very confident, even when disagreeing with her VP. She is awesome to watch. My new boss and my new COO and one of the VPs are all ENFPs. Our new portfolio manager is also an ENFP. He is impressive as well.
