One of those career questions againóMany thanks in advance for any response, if you are still not too bored with those sorts of questions ;-)
I am now in law school, and if I get an articling position, I will soon be a lawyer. However, my experience in law so far has been certainly less than glamorous [but I donít think that I would like it if itís ďglamorousĒ anyway.] I am somewhat more motivated now, but my motivation had been gone to the gutter for quite a while. I really appreciate the intellectual rigour of the curriculum, but I cannot be emotionally inspired by /connected with what I am learning. I felt emotionally isolated at school for quite a while, unable to connect with most of my schoolmates [or the lawyers that I tried to network with, for that matter.] Iíve heard a couple of stories about unhappy INFJ lawyers/law students, and that certainly doesnít help. Fortunately the lawyer that I have been working for has become like a role model to me, so I feel more hope that I can find a niche in the legal profession.
I just wonder what careers other INFJs have, and how you guys are feeling about your careers. Just to clarify, I donít believe that types limit career choices. Besides, many things are not determined by types. If you happen to know a happy INFJ lawyer and why s/he is happy, that will be great news indeed.
