Reply To: Introduce Yourself
I already introduced myself earlier but I found that I did actually do some other tests in the past (2012) to try and figure out what I wanted to do for a career. I did a Strongs Interest survey that said I was a RCI (Realistic, Conventional, Investigative) and I did a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which showed a ISFP (Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving). I know I am an introvert for sure and at this point in my life I don’t care if I have a so called career! I feel that word just carries too much stress for me. I am not the kind of person that wants to live to work I want to work to live! I don’t like to work over time ever, I don’t like to work weekends or Holidays or nights. I just want to go to work do my job and go home and do the things that I like to do. When I was younger I thought that I was supposed to want a career and climb the ladder because that is what society expected. I thought if I had a degree people would look at me differently and respect me. I was wrong. I got a degree in a field of my passion and tried to get a job in that field but it didn’t work out how I thought and I ended up not liking what I was passionate about anymore. That is when I decided to keep my passion and my job separate. Like I said earlier I am not interested in a career perse but I do want to like my job but I am having a hard time doing that. I am hoping that this will give me some insight on why I feel the way I do about my job and to accept myself for who I am and that’s ok.
