    I was that way until I finished college and wondered "now what"? All of a sudden it hit me that nobody was going to take care of me and I had to get a job that gave me enough to live on.
    I am at that stage right now, I wonder how common it is for educated ISFPs, do you suppose it might be a result of a lack of planning and foresight, simply going with the flow?

    It certainly was for me. I had no interest in planning for the future at that time -- all I really cared about was doing what I felt like doing for the 4 years I was in college. My two main interests at the time were art and boyfriends. Everything else was trivial. Up until the time I graduated, I seriously never considered my future at all. So with no aim in mind, I got a dumb retail job that I hated just so I could be working, and within a couple of months, I was looking into applying for grad school to get a practical degree.

    I am like this too. I didn't go to university just wasted the first 10 years on odd jobs. It wasn't till I found a passion for training and coaching that I really focused on my career.
    It really is true about ISFPs needing to find something they have a passion for.
    Something that fits with their values.
    My regret is not looking at myself and working out what was important to me and developing the skills in the right direction earlier.

    Wow.

    I'm the odd duck.

    I already know what I want to do with my life and I'm working towards it.

    Woohoo! Seriously, that's wonderful! You're way ahead of the game, then.
