These days I have kept myself busy with taking some online personality and career tests. Another test I took some days before had 68 questions and took me approximately 10-15 minutes (www.careertest.net). I had to consider one thing, that my responses should reflect “the real me” not the way I want to be. It really helped me with some new ideas and alternatives. Below is the result of the test and my personality type description I really want to share with the readers.
INFJ – Author (My Personality Type)
INFJ's are strongly driven to help others. These are serious students and workers who really want to contribute. They make good therapists, and ministers. 1% of the total population.
The agreeable nature and quiet personality of INFJ's makes them particularly vulnerable to hurt feelings. Distress within close relationships can shatter the INFJ. Like all NFs under stress, INFJ's feel fragmented and lost — as if they are acting out a part rather than simply being themselves. This disassociation can be related to physical symptoms for the INFJ, whether real or imagined. Feeling split off from their physical natures, INFJ's may become virtually immobilized by repressed feelings.
Although INFJ's may feel like remaining still and stationary until the chaos and confusion of a stressful situation dissipates, it would be best for them to actively sort out their needs from others. Being excessively cooperative and agreeable, the INFJ has a tendency to adopt values and beliefs of others as their own. When external conflicts grow, so does the INFJ's sense of personal disharmony. Disassociating themselves from others takes a great deal of effort for the INFJ.
This lists represent careers and jobs people of your type tend to enjoy doing. The job requirements are similar to the personality tendencies of your personality type. It is important to remember that this is not a list of all the jobs possible. And it is very important to remember that people can, and frequently do, fill jobs that are dissimilar to their personality... this happens all the time...and sometimes works out quite well.

The result was amazing. It describes the real me as I have realized myself and others have noticed me. One thing else that was really interesting is the list of careers this site has gathered for the people who have this personality type. Currently, I work as an interpreter and translator and there appears this career at the bottom of the list. I have also worked as a teacher and assistant to the managers. These two careers are also there included on the list. This motivates me to improve my skills and work harder to achieve my goals and objectives and become the person I wish to be.
