I've already posted in threads but oh well... time to formally introduce myself!
I'm 25 and live in the ever-disappointing state of Louisiana. Went to college for a graphic design degree. In the end I didn't get a job in that field because: 1. the industry became bloated with capable designers and 2. I felt the job was empty... I couldn't really express myself in it. I thought back on how much enjoyment I got out of teaching piano for years, and the knack I seemed to have for it, and decided to get my alt. certification. Already had a minor in English so the rest was easy. I've been teaching a few years and now I have my dream job teaching English to high school Gifted students. We "get" each other for the most part and it's a real pleasure and challenge to, well, constantly challenge them.
I have a wide range of hobbies that I am mediocre at (jack of all trades, master of none). Writing, art, music... my problem is that I love to come up with concepts, and I'm enamored with my ideas until I get down to the detail work which totally drains me of energy. I'm currently working on a couple of novels and it takes so much effort to write when I'm covering things not related directly to the themes. But that's a classic INFJ I guess. I'm so flaky, I got accepted for an Illustration masters program, on a full scholarship no less, then after that year of making a great portfolio I realized I can't make art all day long on command, it'd drive me insane, so I dropped out.
I'm also a huge nerd. I love comics, anime/manga, literature, history, philosophy, sociology, musicals, etc. Give me rich, complicated characters and I'm sold. Give me beautiful music, dialogue, scenery/art, etc and I'm in heaven.
Well I've rambled enough. Hello all... it's so great to find so many NFs to talk to, I feel really misunderstood most of the time. (Though I made my students take the test and disturbed one of them when she realized she is also an INFJ just like her spastic teacher. :P)
