I’m not exactly in the mood for brain stimulating thinking right now, but I am still job searching. As I pause and surf the web, I saw an article on lifehacker, the topic being: Don’t Do What You Love. Do What You Are.
So I decided to take a personality test on it again. I remember when I was younger, I was a ENFP, and then somehow turned to INFP. And tonight’s test results is still INFP. Most likely I will stay in this category for a while.
So how does this discovery affect me?
So far the jobs that I’ve been looking for are jobs that I would be probably be good at, because of what I’ve learned from college and what I’ve experienced in the past. I did not think about who I am.
Of course I know who I am.
But I’m just going to quote a psychology professor that I had in my last quarter of college on the first day of class.
“Who are you?”
“Who are you really?”
Rinse and Repeat.
So I rinse and repeat on myself tonight, since I don’t think I’ve think about who I am for a while now.
The test results gave me several links. Obviously it’s not perfect, but it’s a general construction of the type of person I am.

- Descriptions of the personality types (typelogic.com)
- Career info based on your type (personalitypage.com)
- Relationship info based on your type (personalitypage.com)
And in the “Career info based on your type” I can’t say I disagree with it.
|Possible Career Paths for the INFP:|
|Counselors / Social Workers|
|Teachers / Professors|
|Clergy / Religious Workers|
I’m definitely not certified to do any of those jobs that require certification, other than musician and writer, but I think people that know me can see those job qualities in me. Or rather, me doing those jobs.
Maybe I should have been a psych major. Still, I enjoy economics because it does have psychology in it, knowing what people’s unlimited desires and limited sources, and the theories that go around them.
I really like this description on wiki as well. “Healer”
Especially the Love and Relationship part: “so they are best suited to a partner who can adapt to these changing needs”.
It’s not that I can’t find people I like, it’s people that will able to adapt to me painlessly are just a little rare. But that’s the only way things will last and that’s the way I want to do.
I’m actually challenging myself to never break up with anyone. An almost impossible challenge to do in this era.
Good luck to me.
Yeah so this is just for fun. If you want to take a personality test. Check out this website.
I did Kisa Personality Test mainly because it did have some unfamiliar questions to other personality tests. Take your time in knowing thy self.
