    I'm an ISFP and I don't think that social work or nursing are for me, either. It's way too much (eek) paperwork and not enough outdoor time to make this ISFP happy.
    If you're definitely a T and not an F, you might want to put istp in your type field instead of isfp.

    Oh, no, I am definitely an isfp. It is Pancreas who is an istp. I just messed up on the quoting.

    Hi Pancreas,
    Thank you for the welcome.
    I've had some really bad career counselors in the past, too.
    One of them said that I should be a billing clerk.
    That was after he asked me what I thought my ideal job would be, and I said, "travel writer." He said, "You don't want to be a travel writer. You'll have to eat airline food and your luggage could get lost."
    That's when he suggested "billing clerk." My eyes glazed over at the thought of sitting at a desk all day and typing up bills.
    I told him that was a bad idea.
    He said that I had a bad attitude.
    Fortunately, I didn't have to pay him for his... um... advice.

    And I see you're new like me. Welcome.

    Yeah. Once we got past my false personality type I also mentioned I didn't mind maths and then BAM! I got a string of accounting/bank related choices

    At that point I gave up thinking I might get some helpful advice.
