    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!

    Hello scortia. Welcome to you

    Seems like INFJs are the most un-J-like of all Js. I also have my fingers in too many pies and a trail of half completed projects behind me.

    Funny how you're leaving graphics design when I'm just thinking of going into it. This doesn't bode well for me does it? lol! No matter.

    Oh and deep down, everybody wants to be nerds.

    I'm glad my entrance is coercing all the INFJs out of their self-contemplating caves. :P

    Nightning: We're J in that we are taking the initiative at least. We just fall in and out of love with things too fast. :P

    With Graphic Design, well part of my reasoning may have also been because of my experience. I was exhausted from doing so many sedentary computer classes back to back for two years. Also, I had a rough time with my professors when my senior year rolled around. In a nutshell, they loved my talent but hated my "low-brow" interest in illustration and essentially tried to rig what I was allowed to enter into the senior show. If you live in a large city, finding a job would probably be easy. But by the time I got out the industry was saturated where I lived and classmates were telling me they were starting at $15,000 a year salaries.

    Default Hi!

    Welcome to the board, Scortia! I grew up in Louisiana...New Orleans to be exact. Loved it there for a time, but my land of milk and honey is now Texas. I understand a lot of where you're coming from...and great job with the dream job! Keep it up!

    If you want somebody to talk literature, let me know! Y'all INFJs are some of my favorites, right up there with INFPs and my fellow ENFJs.

    Peace!

    ENFJ_Catholic: I lived in New Orleans until I was 12! Was in Lake Vista area, close to City Park. What area are you from?

    There's an abnormally high population of INFJs hereabouts.

    Eck! How are you suppose to showcase yourself in the grad show if they don't let choose the work that best represents you? That didn't sound like fun. Good to see you're now happy teaching.

    $15k a year? I live in a fair sized city so hopefully it'll be better.

    I was from St. Charles Parish. Moved closer to the city as I got older. Graduated from Brother Martin.

    I loved City Park...Spanish moss and live oaks... wonderful. The city still has a special place in my heart.

    Haha, my dad and uncle graduated from Brother Martin (forever ago). Small world.

    nightning: My professors tried to basically leave me no choice but to submit paintings from basic/intermediate painting. You know, still-lives and model practice... which totally showed who I was as an artist, right? I got an illustration accepted, though, that was me subtly saying "screw you guys and your fine art BS" by the time the show rolled around. Tee hee.
