It seems like the Ne/Fi combo can make it pretty hard to settle on something. Plus they're so dang good at so many things and love to learn.
    Yes! My best friend is also SO good at so many things (but she complains she isn't haha ). I don't worry about how much money she'll be making, because to me money is not important to happiness (though having enough to pay the bills is important). I just worry about her happiness. I don't think college would necessarily make her happier, but it holds a plethora of opportunities. She shares with me her dreams but she doesn't try and chase after them. To me it seems she always ends up settling for less than what she hoped for but it doesn't seem to come across to her like that.

    Well, 20 is still young, and better to do something than nothing. I think I could work as a mortician, but would perhaps find it a bit unsatisfying after a while I guess, unless I had exciting hobbies and could follow intellectual pursuits when not at work. Remember also that the job is much more than "beautician for corpses". Morticians speak to a lot of people, console and comfort family, advertise their service, speak with clergy etc, and an ENFP would be well equipped for many of these tasks. She probably won't stick with it for the rest of her life, but it's a good place to start, it is doing something instead of nothing, the pay is good, and it'll be a cool thing to tell grandchildren, put on the CV etc. She'll also get many great stories and develop a very hilarious/macabre humor.

    Well, I spoke to her about working for a funeral home, but she seemed to not want to have anything to do with the people. She said that would be depressing, being around a bunch of people that had lost someone. I think she just wants to do the cadaver thing.

    Now that I truly think about it, it wouldn't be unlike her to work on corpses for a year just so she could spend the rest of her life saying "I used to be a mortician". She loves to have brag rights...

    Oh. That surprises me a bit. Still, yes, she'll be able to brag about it, and she's got plenty of time to find her true calling in life, so as long as she keeps doing something it's all good. (I'm guessing she'll eventually end up in academia when she grows up a bit more, shakes her rebellious tendencies and trusts herself more, but no need to rush it before she's ready. Besides, an ENFP might never take higher education and still live a fulfilling life as long as they get to do the things they're good at.)

    Her boyfriend is little more motivated than her (ISTJ) and plans on attending college eventually, and I don't doubt that he will. Maybe she'll follow his lead. Other than that I won't hold my breath hoping she'll go.
