Should I be earning more money?

I’m a 27-year-old INFP woman. I live with my parents, have a boyfriend of four years, and quit a good office job last year to travel. Now I’m a part-time manual laborer (I’m a longshoreman, so I tie up container and cruise ships). I also have my own office space where I do some freelance […]

During my second year of college, I am taking Finance and Accounting courses, and loving the work. I have decided that I want to become an investment banker after college. What […]

What is the best job for an INFP?

I know you have to keep trying different jobs out to know what you want to do, I think my problem is that there is some kind of block/resistance around anything, including the jobs I try out. I’m an INFP. I have interned as a Human resource intern for a non-profit and I think I […]
