    Forget about your type and focus on your interests. If you want to do social work, follow that dream. When finding a job you need to focus on qualities that do appeal
    E-You will find a lot of contact eith people in social work
    N-unfortunately no N. Social work is a practical job where the state dictates your methods.
    F- feeling does match social work. A job working with kids requires mercy and patience, and feelers are more likely to see the right thing to do and argue against the state than the thinkers, most of which would just focus on logic and agree with the politicians, who are also thinkers
    P- I'd imagine social work is a job with scheduled cases and appointments, but there might be some P in there
    ESFJs would do better according to my analysis, but since you have two letters in common with this job, you definitely can enjoy half of it, which is enough. I'd say two or more letters in common is just fine. I once worked a job where I contacted 2 or less people throughout the day, couldn't think creatively, and couldn't use my emotions. The only part I liked about it was that we traveled around town doing a variety of things, which apparently wasn't enough for me.
    "Don't let a damned soul stomp on you for your age, but instead show them that you can be just as good as them in both morals and judgment"- 1 Timothy 4:12 in my own words that I can relate to.

    On second thought...depending on how averse you are to this, you may want to avoid counseling. What about consulting work of some sort?

    Maybe. I like the general idea, but what would I consult with others on?

    Someone I keep coming back to is Carl Sagan. I'd love to do what he did.

    This is a thankless, underpaid job (like teaching and police work), so I'd only pursue this as a career if you are very passionate about it.

    No, you seem to have more questions than answers. I think you would be suited to some sort of apprenticeship.

    Sounds like a UU joke I heard.

    Default Going to do cooking school next summer. I missed my chance to do it this year.

    This is my second time to write this because my computer autorefreshed, and don't have the time or patience to say it all again.

    The main point is this:

    I feel like my Pharmacy Tech job is irrelevant to my life outside of work, so I'm going to learn how to cook so I can try that. I'll edit in something similar to what I wrote before later.

    Good luck. The Cook's Country/America's Test Kitchen team has a very good cookbook for beginners. I'd start with that.
    Whatever happened to Jill Eikenberry? She used to be all over the TV; haven't seen her in years.

    I enjoy cooking. It's like science, except you can eat it.

    Good luck and have fun. Tell us if you learn anything cool.

    I will! I learned how to fry an egg the other day, by the way.
