Invincible INFP

List of INFP Careers

If you’re an INFP, chances are pretty good that you dislike or downright hate your career. Part of this is because we are idealists. We see things the way they should be and have troubles accepting the way things are. We keep our heads in the clouds where we come up with great ideas only to have them shot down by others. It’s frustrating and our constant frustration can lead to anger, resentment¬†and hatred.

If you’re new to the work field, say a high school student, understand that you are unique. You should spend a lot of time deciding what career to go into. Don’t just make a quick decision like I did(“I’m good with computers. I’ll do Computer Science.”). It will bite you years down the line when you realize you’re constantly fighting your nature by pretending you’re someone else and trying to fit into a different world than what you were created for.

You will find INFP career lists like the one I’m about to show you all over the Internet. But the plain fact is that we can’t just look at a list and decide we’ll be, for instance, a therapist. We need to learn as much as possible about ourselves, our likes, our dislikes and our personalities. We then need to look at each career and decide: does it require me to use my strengths? Will I be forced to try to use my weakest personality traits as if they were my strongest?

If you prefer to get a more in-depth understanding of your career preferences, how they affect you and what you should be doing with your life, I highly recommend this book:

Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type
Create your own user feedback survey

And now on to the list. These careers may or may not fit you, but it’s important to understand why each of them is on the list and why they might appeal to INFPs.
