    I'm in communications. The place where I work is fantastic - my core team is full of NTs. But it's not the type of career where I satisfy my desire to connect with people meaningfully or save the world. That happens in my spare time.

    i'm a stay at home mom currently, before i was a stay at home mom i worked at a fortune 500 company as a manufacturing specialist, it was the worst job in the world, and i'm glad i quit. In my spare time i'm a mom. My world revolves around my son. I also enjoy crossword puzzles, video games and reading.

    If i could choose a career i would want to work in a drug rehabilitation center as some sort of a drug counselor.

    Don't look at me for ideas, the work I do is mentally draining, and my hobbies just leave people wondering if I'm an INFP at all.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    I'm in high school, but my favourite classes are photography, history, art, and law. I have no idea what I want to do after high school.

    In my spare time I play guitar and read. I sometimes draw, too.

    I'm currently studying to become a primary school teacher. It's good for the Fi and the Te, but it can be very draining for an introvert.

    I'm not sure if I'm just going to stick with this though. Psychology interests me so I may get into this field later on.

    I'm almost done with my masters degree in history. I also have some geography courses, some math courses, a basic anthropology course, and a lot of small scattered courses that caught my interest. A also took a one year teacher's course. Working part time as a night receptionist at a hotel atm, but will start teaching teens (secondary/highschool) next year. Dreaming about becoming an author, but will only do it as a hobby until I see if I could live off it.
    I have arms for a fucking reaosn, so come hold me. Then we'll fuvk! Whoooooh! - GZA

    There's quite a few threads around if you hunt about.. about people's careers and so on...

    INFPs seem tailor made for counselling of some sort. Although I know many of them adopt a more "logical/cold" front to hold down a more run of the mill technical job like a lawyer or something.

    Hobbies wise.. seem to enjoy nature, reading. More reading. Even more reading. Animals, particularly (but not exclusively) cats.. who seem to appreciate the loner/independence of their owners.

    im no infp, but my friends who are do the following:

    male, 25 - artist (sculpture, film, painting, basically anything)
    male, 27 - given up on uni (soc. anthropology), now working menial job, trying to get into webdesign.
    female, 26 - student of art history. seems incredibly content without any specific ambitions.

    jack keroac was an infp. beat poet. different approach to life. read "on the road," or anything by him, and it should fiddle your strings a bit (im sure you can find something online...)

    best of luck!

    I've almost finished up my degree in English. I may pursue teaching, but I would would only consider it if I went to graduate school. I work at a local pizza place as an in store person (serving/bussing/bar tending/the occasional delivery). Pretty much everyone there actively uses or has tried marijuana. It's a very atmospheric place to work at; the employees are fun, friendly people to work with. I like to read, listen to music, play computer games, wander aimlessly, try different types of beer and ski.
    I may be bested in battle, but I shall never be defeated.
