I figured I'd come here to get some advice. I recently took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter in order to try and get some insight into my problem. I'm thinking that if I better understand myself (supposedly an ISTP), I can reach some sort of resolution.
I'm in the second year of my master's program and I can honestly say that don't like it. The only part that I like about it is the mathematical modeling I need to do for my thesis (but that can get old, fast). Everything else I'm bored with and couldn't care less. Honestly, sometimes I wish that I would just fail something so I could get the point or move on with my life. That has been the story for my entire college career. I took a really cavalier attitude towards school but have always managed to do well which just prolonged this whole thing. I figured I'd just to go grad school. Why not? I had nothing else going for me.
I've noticed myself becoming intensely pleasure-seeking. I have a tough time initiating work but if something is fun I don't have a problem doing it. I think this is because I'm bored to tears, restless and just frustrated with life. I drink a lot of coffee and alcohol but use them more as enhancements. My friend got me into drugs last summer but I managed to stop that when I moved out here (West) to go to school. That was an exciting summer.
I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm always bored. I start new things which excites me for a while, then that excitement just fades away. Sorry if this is a bit disjointed. It's difficult for me to talk about these sorts of issues. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks,
