Breaking conventions is something we specialize in Must be an NF trait??
I agree, there is nothing demeaning about trade schools or polytechnics as opposed to college/university. Don't you feel that sometimes it is the parents who are in need of career guidance or even psychological counselling?
This could be the topic of a whole new thread! For instance, "How has learning about MBTI changed or improved your teaching or parenting style?" Maybe the thread already exists?
Anyway, your intro is making quite a buzz - yea, the INFJs are sure coming out to welcome you!
