    Hmmm, I may need to consider something along these lines as well. I still want to wait till October to see what the fate of my job may be; but after that I have at least from then till April to find something new if I don't get a different (more satisfying) position.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Is it me or are there too much Intuitives in that work place.

    It seems like a job that ESTJ or any other SJ would like.

    But I think most Intuitives would be bored.
    (It seems dominated by NJ - They need variety )

    But yea, follow Thursday advice

    They like me because I am similar to the EN-J wife at the age of 19 or 20. I think they see me as a pet project they are helping get into law school. They are some of the nicest people I have ever come in contact with. That is why I am hesitant about quitting. The couple lives by the philosophy that the children's lives they touch is their legacy so they generously help any teen if they can. They take their son's friends to take the assessment test for the local JC and help them buy their books and they rent rooms at reduced prices to teens so they can save for school.

    I was telling my mom (ESfJ) about my job and why I hated it, and she said that she would find it very fun. It is a job for an SJ. The other people that do my job in the suite are both ESFJs.

    It is much clearer now: quit.

    (As long as it doesn't hurt your chances of getting into law school somehow.)

    I would suggest carefully examining the alternatives before taking a decision. Not only is it important to weigh the pros and cons, but to try to picture yourself in the alternative and how you would feel. I don't think it's easy to do this naturally, and it takes some work, hence the "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome.

    Spot on. It's better to eat and have a roof over your head. That's first priority. If you can ensure that elsewhere, put in your 2 weeks notice.

    I'd try to leave on as good of terms as possible, since that's quite a chunk of time to put into something without getting a good reference. I might even considering lying as for the reason I'm leaving if they pressured me and it came down to that.

    The grass is greener where? I already said I will not help the other side win. I'm simply going to quit this forum and quit trying to help you. What needs to be weighed?

    If they're like family, I'd simply tell them what you've told us. Just tell them that you think they're wonderful, and you appreciate the amazing opportunity they've given you, but that the monotony of the actual task is starting to get to you, and that you really need some variety when you come to work every day. Maybe tell them that as a lawyer, you'd get to analyze situations and how best to attack them and win the case, which is a mental challenge you'd appreciate. But filing, no matter how great the environment, isn't giving you the challenge you need, and it's absolutely nothing personal, but you feel like it's time to find something else.

    I think they'll understand. Heck, they may even try to find something around there that would suit your personality better. But likely, at the very least, they'll hate to see you go, but ultimately understand and wish you well.
