I was easily stressed out and the nurses were very demanding. I prefer to be a cosmologist or photographer but have doubted myself with the compition out there. I don't know how to say yes continue bc of your caring heart for others or no bc the rules and demands and scheduling is a pain. All I can help with is sharing my own experiences, which I hope will help!!!
How much do you like cosmetology? Do you have a degree? Can you do all the things you feel passionate about? You are compassionate and caring, please don't waste that. The world needs our humanity in these times. I really appreciate how you feel. No; music is my passion.
I am an ISFP and it's dead-on , and music can be included in arts. So no, it's perfectly normal. Never say no to your urges when it comes to the Arts. Music is one of the Fine Arts. Music is the universal language, crossing all borders it is free and born of the heart. Listen to your passions, they will guide you.
I took this assessment, and now it's making me question my college career. I have ISPF too, and in one aspect i have chosen the right path. I am going to be a massage therapist, but as far as my college career goes, I am going to be an English teacher. However it says that I am not meant to be a school administrator. Go with your gut. I'm reading ISPF for the first time and it is dead on. Now I realize how my life has changed when I switched from 1. I don't have the money coming in but I'm the happiest I've ever been Just follow your dream and everything should work out great!
Don't let it change you if you still think you are going a good direction. If the reasons you started on the path you are on are still valid, you have no reason to change things! However, if you realize that you will not be happy and will actively be untrue to yourself then you might rethink things. Being a massage therapist is something I have considered, however my hands are not strong enough. It sounds like a great profession for us ISFPs. If you become an English teacher, that will also be amazing-- I wish I had been taught English by ISFPs or similar types who would nurture and focus on the beauty of writing rather than the deadline.
My mother got me into creative writing and I "self learned" how to love literature and writing, both technical and creative. You'll just have to keep in mind that you have blind spots and check up on them every once in a while if you are in a vocation that is a challenge to you. I am headed toward law school next year and the page says that being a lawyer is one of the least popular careers for ISFPs, but I am going to try to specialize in family law minus divorce.
That is how I will make it worthwhile. My dad is a worker's compensation attorney and I know I would hate that-- endless perusal of every factoid and keeping a million factoids in line on a million cases, often interviewing people who are trying to defraud someone else Yes, the writing thing! INFPs are the ones who typically get most of the credit for being gifted with the written word, but I was actually a pretty good writer in high school and college.
We often believe that writing skills are a thing of divine providence, but as you say, you can learn to be a great writer.
For me, I struggled with writing until the 11th grade when my AP history teacher provided a clear blue print for the parts of an essay, how to arrange it, what it must accomplish, etc. He basically spelled it all out while other teachers had a habit of speaking about writing as if it were some product of spontaneous inspiration that we should always be on the look out for and drop everything to grab it once it clutches us. In many ways, teachers made it seem as if great writers are only born, never made.
It would be helpful in our education system to read more of the "duds" those great writers produced instead of just being slapped upside the head with all their epic sagas of brilliance. At least then we could see that even the most naturally gifted get dry spells. No wonder kids get discouraged. I also expanded my vocabulary by memorizing definitions, etc, to make my writing more melodic and engaging. I can analyze things pretty well, but this was also a learned skill and something that takes a great deal of energy from me. Eh, not ever my strong point. I guess my conclusion is that we ISFPs can learn anything and master it, but it just takes lifelong interest and practice to maintain certain skills, like good writing.
My husband, an NP, is a professional journalist and can analyze something in an instant and make his observation seem so obvious. I chose a major based in very cerebral, esoteric theory, and although I got mostly As, as I told my prof when he tried to get me to take on harder assignments than others, "I may be one of your stronger students as you say, but this doesn't come easy for me!
I work really, really hard and it takes me a long time to get this stuff. And as the studies show, just finishing your bachelor's in anything gives you more lifetime earning power. The only problem is you may not be using that English degree to teach, for example. You might use it for some other career that pays well, but that which might not be your passion. Having said that, however, if you haven't gotten too far in your college career, I see no problem in switching degrees if you have your doubts.
It's just that those college loans do start to stack up, and switching degrees can mean more debt down the road, so just keep that in mind. I am actually thinking about nursing school, myself, but then again, I think about that college loan debt I already have. But another thing to keep in mind: ISFPs typically lack confidence and don't give themselves enough credit, yet also tend to excel at pretty much anything they set their minds to.
See my story about finishing my degree above: We're all just figuring it out as we go along. Teaching is not the same as school administration. Administrators include principals, deans, superintendents, etc. A school administrator is like a secretary. Go with your passion. I'm sure you'll be an excellent English teacher.
I excelled at what I did but certainly had to believe in my belief in what the education system could be or what a school could be. I was excellent at what I did because no one else was doing it my way. Do what you choose and you will love it and bring another point of view very rarely heard. Remember the majority of dropouts are SP's so for them to meet an instructor or and administrator who understands them is a gift beyond anything you can imagine. We usually cannot get through the studying part though However if we can push ourselves we make wonderful teachers.
The values and activities seem to line up a lot more than the traditional US school system in its current state. Remember this is basically and educated guess based an a select amount of people studied if you think you're going to be good as a teacher or someone else does don't let this opinion get in the way!
I have taken this test in the pass, but I do not remember what my type ended up being. However this time I will remember my results because I'm happy to say that they are right about me. I couldn't be more of a supporter of the Meyers, Briggs personality test. I want everyone to take the time to find themselves and start moving in the direction the test suggest for them to do, because this is a connection that helps to move forward with a better understanding of who you are and helps to understand where it is one could be most effective.
Thank you to my Professor who suggested this exercise for our class. I am in the right field and on my way to a great start helping others in a safe and supportive environment. The only thing is that I scored right in the middle of Intuitive and Sensing. I've read both descriptions and can see myself in both of these, especially if with varying moods. It seems when I'm around other people especially enlightening people my mood lifts, even though I'm definitely not an extrovert!
I do definitely daydream about future possibilties and what career I'd like to pursue, but I definitely appreciate my surroundings, especially a beautiful garden or house. Don't be confused about it. There are a lot of tests that measure this but you have to keep in mind that the tests ask a question and assume that all of X type will answer X way, etc I have a lot of T-- I almost always test as a T.
And yeah, there are probably lots of reasons for this but just accept that I'm an F for now. I feel like some activites and behaviors also pull out certain parts of our person. When I write, I include a variety of descriptions and always try to get some part of the world I see in my mind described to the reader. I would love to do more and more but it gets boring to read and I would probably be too detailed. Constant descriptions are something I have found much much more common among S writers.
Tolkein was an N and it is actually difficult for me to read him because I feel disconnected from the story and its world.
How to Communicate With an ISFP | Dating Tips
I would love to hear comments or just know another someone is reading it. I recommend Life, vol 1. I think I might have to "borrow" it into a story. Most of this is spot on. Although there a few things that are not like me, such as being very likely to drop out of college. I also am not one to let people take advantage of me and I'm quick to stand up for myself.
Other than that this is me in a nutshell. I'm not playing on dropping out of college, and I was taught never to let someone take advantage of me, something that I often remember and shows in my slightly defensive personality. This really defined me well. I never knew how many characteristics I had until i saw them outlined. Almost every single section, hits the kind of person I am dead on.
It also tells me that the career path I have chosen to take is the right one. I am very glad i took this test. This is really accurate but it just shows me how pathetic my life is. My career was forced upon by my parents, and seeing this just makes me more confused and lost.. I have no idea what kind of job I want to do and looking at this, and these jobs given I admit they are my style of jobs but dont pay well..
It's okay if it doesn't pay well. Save a little money and pursue things that are a better fit on the side at first.
Knowing You Are Loved, You Can Do Anything
Make time for them though, no matter what. At some point you can master them and get paid enough to make the switch, but you have to invest the time. That's funny, I actually did the same thing. I always being quiet and more introverted was a bad thing. I thought I had apsperger's or Autism too, because I thought I was weird or had social issues. I have aspergers and was diagnosed my sophomore year of high school. Aspergers is so much more than being quiet.
I have trouble talking to people I don't know and making friends.
I love to hang out with the friends I do have. I get overwhelmed when there is too much stimuli ex. Noise, sound, light, smells. It takes me longer to complete school work than most students which was a problem in school when I felt like my teachers were mad or upset with me because I didn't complete my assignment in the same time as the other kids even though I worked hard the entire time unlike most others who were goofing off and talking. Aspergers Is different in every individual who has it. Most people with it may have irrational fears or obsessions almost like hobbies.
For me when I was little I enjoyed bugs, not spiders though.
I used to find a similar type of caterpillar every time we went camping and named him Edward. This lasted for years. I was then interested in butterflies for years, wearing them all the time. Then I liked rocks. There are many different shapes and sizes and colors and then you get ones with crystals that are pretty. Until trust is developed through one-on-one interactions, ISFPs exercise caution in new relationships. Observe how an ISFP communicates and then attempt a similar communication style.
Initiate casual conversation with a personal comment such as, "That's a great tie," or "I couldn't help but notice what you're reading. An ISFP is spontaneous and enjoys living presently. Carve unrestrained quality time and let conversation flow naturally. He will perceive rushed or forced conversation as pushy and confrontational and this will raise his guard. ISFPs are skilled listeners, often making whomever is talking feel like the most important person in the room. Because of their accommodating nature, ISFPs might be reluctant to offer information. Ask questions to help draw out their interests and let them know you value their insight.
ISFPs are observant, thoughtful and considerate. They think before they speak and do not to force their opinions or values on others.
Consequently, they might respond slowly or seem hesitant to make a decision. ISFPs are sensitive to criticism and might have difficulty expressing emotions, particularly negative ones. Praise and a judgment-free environment enable an ISFP to be openly expressive.
ISFPs don't do well with broad questions or general information. This is particularly important during a confrontation.
