In a dark wood wandering

I distinctly remember telling Tinny in our first session: "...and I don't do self help books". So how come I'm now engrossed in Gerald M. Sturman's The Career Discovery Project? 66 Pages in, and I've discovered I'm an ESFJ: Practical Harmonizer and Worker with People. 90 More pages to go, and I should be able to translate that into practical terms and find a career more suited to my personality and ability.

There may be something to self help books, after all.

There's nothing wrong with an occassional self-help book. It is those people who are always walking around with one that you have to worry about.

Oh, I agree: there's nothing inherently wrong with the occasional self help book -- just never imagined myself reading one with interest, is all! ;-)

Interesting. I love the Myers-Briggs. I'm an INTJ

Aha! So you're "a strong individualist who seeks out new angles or novel ways of looking at things...enjoy coming to new understandings... insightful and mentally quick" -- well, that shines through in your writing!

Yep, that would be me. When I found out my type, everything kind of fell into place. It was like, "No wonder I'm this way!"

Same here. I find I'm reading ther description and nodding my head in agreement -- of course, I do that with most all descriptions of types, as long as they mention individuality, intellect, social skills and artistic leanings as core characteristics of the type... ;-)

LOL...isn't that the truth? A lot of times those types work a lot like horoscopes. They're so general that it all makes sense. :)
