I am just curious I have taken the MB test several times and it always ends up telling me that I am an INFJ/P and recommends that I pursue Psych or counseling etc. but I am finding myself very attracted to the military.
I am attracted to the discipline and strength of soldiers, and I feel that THE GOOD ONES who fight for true freedom are affecting the world in a way that a counselor simply couldn't.
While the wars that we fight today are VERY controversial, I have done the research (I have a BA in history) and I feel that our efforts in places like Afghanistan, N. Korea etc. are truly humanitarian at their core and without the military's protection, aid could never be brought to these broken nations. While civilian casualties, the horror that is post-war Iraq, etc. make it hard to appreciate the military, I feel that (GOOD) soldiers are really making a difference without getting much support for their sacrifices.
Can any other INFJ's see where I am coming from or provide some advice? I know our type tends to idealize things, but the idea of being an officer and really getting to know and lead my men while working towards ridding the world of cruel, manipulative regimes really appeals to me in a way that sitting behind a desk and counseling addicts or people with depression does not. Thanks!
