Are you in your dream job?

But How to Choose?

That's the million dollar question!!

We ENFPs want a job we enjoy, one that we find fulfilling and that is meaningful to us. We want more than just a paycheck at the end of the day.

Not everyone else thinks like this and a lot of advise that's given to young people when they're making their career choices in high school and college common reflects more traditional views.

This includes focussing on the salary level of a job, or just on jobs that match your qualifications. This advice is usually well-intentioned and there are elements of it that are certainly worth paying attention to.

But if you're an ENFP personality type you'll probably find that also taking other factors like your values, interests and what you want out of life into account will help you to make a better decision. For more careers advice just check out our website

      I am wondering if dietician and nutrition is a good job for my personality type. I love people and being flexible but iI also want a job with perspective (would love to do some kind of counseling but don't see much growth & opportunity). any suggestions? thank you!!

      @anonymous: Consulting it a large field, but it could be a good match Hardik as long as the areas covered were ones that the ENFP in question felt strongly about. It would also help if the culture was flexible, positive and supportive as some consulting cultures are cut-throat, rules-focused and very competitive, not the sort of atmosphere many ENFPs would thrive in.
