Career Paths for INFJs

Are you an INFJ that is struggling with what you want to do for a career? Do you know what you like but aren’t sure how that translates into day-to-day life within a job? 

I had/have many of the same questions, and wanted to share with you what I have learned so far, in hopes that I can help an INFJ who might be struggling with this decision. 

A few things to consider: 

-We typically won’t be happy in a position where the skills are mastered easily and then we have to do the same thing over and over again. We tend to be happier when we can learn new things, although not to the extent that it causes overwhelming anxiety. 

-We don’t tend to like jobs that are too physical. 

-We typically can do technical jobs, but prefer creative ones. 

-We typically like to do something with a purpose, something that will make a difference in whatever way is meaningful to us. 

-We usually like to work autonomously, but still feel supported by and connected to our coworkers and boss.
