INFP Community v2: Lovers, Dreamers, and Me



I'm curious about what everyone in this community does in terms of occupation, what everyone here is pursuing to be or have thought of becoming.

I'm so curious.

I kind of recently just figured out that I was an INFP, and it's amazing how accurate the analyses were. And then, I found out that most of the occupations in the career list of an INFP were ones that I really wanted to pursue, but didn't. I'm in advertising now, but I wish I could have had this list to encourage me to keep pursuing psychology and writing.

And what is advertising but the combination of those two interests, psychology and writing? My grandfather, who was an ad-man back in the '30's suggested to me in the late sixties,when I had no idea what to do with my life, that I enter the advertising field. I was far too pure for that( fear of violating my own ethics) and wound up in the army writing the occasional intelligence briefing. Well, go figure...

After I got out of the service, truck driving, manual labor at a plant nursery, and finally working in a grocery store bakery have made up the sum of my work life. Oddly enough in the past couple of years, I've wound up writing and recording department ads for the store intercoms. Advertising!

Writing is a good path. You can make a living at it. It can serve as a spiritual practice. There are plenty of twists and turns on the path and you may find yourself taking worthwhile side-trips.

"If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep walking."

Best of luck on your journey.
