    I'm an admin assistant. I love being the center of everything (customers, employees, my boss, just the office in general). And it's general busy.. so I'm going, going, going. Which I thrive on.

    Also, I've been a waitress... which was okay. I've worked at 3 different restaurants but the only one I really enjoyed was hooters because you're SUPPOSED to go and interact with your customers and the environment is just really goofy and silly. All the other one's were boring.

    I've want to be a psychologist or a lawyer but me and school aren't friends AT ALL.

    Interesting posts though. Very diverse for sure.

    and I'm beyond your peripheral vision

    Communications strategist in advertising!

    It's awesome, mostly because you get to live off your ideas -- the new ways you think up to reach people. No day could ever be the same. One moment, you're moderating a focus group, the next whipping up a brand essence video in Final Cut. The coolest part is working with the research and development team to create new products like a really novel little scalpel or a table that electronically records your tab.

    It's also ideal if you love public speaking, which I do.

    Many agencies believe that in order to keep their people happy and creative, they should do things like provide free classes for learning other languages and furnish a steady flow of alcohol. Free massages too!

    I've got two months left of grad school and then I'll be able to hop into an agency full-time. Huzzah!!!

    BTW, I'm amazed at the bajillions of things my fellow ENFPs do with their lives. You people are amazing.

    I'm gonna go see a guidance counsellor but I'd like to be armed with some info from you guys too... because I am a through and through ENFP and seem to need some kind of ideal state of a job that doesn't seem to exist!

    I'd just like to know what all you ENFP's out there are doing and do you like your careers?

    Cheers...
    Like I promised...

    My family is very math/science-oriented, and I do have a natural aptitude for that kind of thing... as well as other areas. Well, to be honest, pretty much everything I've ever tried always came really easily and naturally, no matter which subject or area it was - it just felt as though I was re-learning something I already knew from another life or something, not to brag, that's just how it was, and it made it a lot more difficult to decide what I wanted to do. My parents pushed us toward degrees which would prepare us for an actual career when we graduated (as opposed to something like, say creative writing, which has potential careers, but there is less "job security" and less of a career path), toward careers that would be useful.

    Also, like others, I can relate to the feeling that everything is SO INTERESTING HOW CAN I POSSIBLY CHOOSE JUST 1 THING TO DO??? I was aware of this type of tendency within myself from a relatively young age. I concluded at some point that it would be better to just pick one thing and go with it. That way I would have a stable income, and some structure so I didn't disintegrate into a little mess all over the floor which seems to happen when I don't have ANY structure. And that way I would have the time develop other areas as interests if I wanted to.

    After 1 or 2 metamorphoses, I settled on civil engineering (I now work as a public transportation planner - trying to improve or optimize or expand various services). I love my company, and the type of work I do certainly reflects my values. On paper, everything seems ideal, but in reality I am SO MISERABLE and feel like it is killing me from the inside. I don't know if it is the routine or what, and I don't know what I would want to do if not this, because it seems like anything would have its pluses and minuses and everything seems equally good. I can imagine myself, with focus and discipline really excelling in the field, especially as I have some rare gifts which are less common in engineers, but I just don't know if I have the discipline or focus, or if I do, I'm not feeling inspired or what.

    And then I do not know if I'm just making excuses for myself by saying things like that or if I actually need to cut myself some slack and acknowledge that I am not the person that I want to be. I really want this career to work for me. I actually care about this field a LOT (sustainable and affordable transportation options - i.e. public transit and stuff like that). But I don't know how to do that.

    So I was doing some evaluation and came to the conclusion that in order for me to be fulfilled at work, I think I need the following three characteristics
    • Physical/visual creativity
    • Analytical thinking
    • People/communication


    And for some reason I suspect there is something else that I can't quite name.

    But then I really do feel like a total whiner or like I'm coming from such a position of privilege (esp in today's economy) to even be able to consider something as ephemeral as "fulfillment" - but I don't even know if it's about fulfillment or about just wanting to not be miserable and wanting to contribute to society at my full capacity.

    Whom or what do you train? And what do you train them to do? Or do you specialize in improving training techniques?

    I believe my mom is an ENFP.

    She's always been a stay-at-home mom.

    She's had a part-time job for the past few years, though, delivering newspapers. She really really likes it...not sure why though. haha

    She also started going back to school recently; she's going to be a physical therapy assistant. She hasn't started clinicals yet (that's next year) but I think she's really going to like it and be good at it. She thinks the human body is absolutely fascinating. Plus, she's an EXTREME people person. So she'll get to help people and chat it up with them all day. Right up her alley.
