INFP – Motivated by personal values that are rarely shared
Written by Catherine Rains
Those that prefer INFP are driven by Introverted Feeling, which translates into very personal, inner values, that you might not ever see, yet they shape most of their decisions, including which careers they choose. The middle letters taken together (NF), motivates them to make a difference it the world. However, with Introverted Feeling as the dominant, this value often shows up as a desire to make a profound difference in the lives of the people around them or in the world, but often this is something you won’t see. They usually choose some type of helping career, or when that’s not possible or practical, will have many philanthropic avocational hobbies to express this need to make a profound difference in the world.
Careers identified as attractive to this type by those that filled out my survey include: Marketing, Human Resources, Veterinarian, Ministry, Missionary, Writer, Journalism, Art, Advertising, Acting, Coaching, Teacher, Dog trainer/breeder, Manage Bed & Breakfast establishments, Bike Shop or Book Store Ownder, Career Counseling, Peace Corps, Non-Profit, and Life Coach.
INFPs: What others careers have you been attracted to? Please add to the list. We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that others types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer INFP.
