Hello! I'm trying to place myself, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm flummoxed. My test results are all over the place. 41Q tells me I'm an Engaged Idealist (=ENFJ). According to the Personality Max test, I'm an ENTJ. I could well be an ENFP or an ENTP.
Main interests: Opera, theatre, history, other cultures, mythology, psychology, literature (the classics, British comedy, adventure stories). Science (particularly natural history); computer adventure games; movies.
Studied History and (a mistake) English. I didn't enjoy my undergrad years - I was practically a hikikomori. (University had no structure and no community - I went from school 5 days a week, knowing most of the people in my year, to a huge campus where I knew nobody, and where one class might be first thing on Monday morning, and the next on Tuesday evening. Social isolation --> nervous breakdown.) Pulled myself out of it by doing volunteer work: tutoring and museum guiding.
Did a Masters degree in English, but realised that academe wasn't for me. (The department was dominated by what Harold Bloom calls the school of resentment: rampant political correctness and politicking. Which is the exact opposite of what a university should be doing. Education should empower; it should broaden people's minds, and teach the best civilisation has to offer, not instil political slogans and narrow-minded spite.)
I'm currently in an office job, which pays well, but is unsatisfying (admin/policy, desk job). My plan is to do a TESOL degree, and spend the next couple of years teaching overseas (Turkey, Thailand, Japan, then off to Madagascar, South America & Africa). This would be a great way of seeing the world, would give me classroom experience, and would allow me to do something useful.
Thinking of school teaching (History/humanities).
In the long term, I want to write (comic fantasy; historical novels). If I could have the last 15 years again, I'd become a theatre director (or possibly a TV producer).
That's probably not enough to make an accurate diagnosis, so please feel free to ask questions. It'd certainly be easier and more revelatory than wading through pages of me introspecting. Thank you!
