What psychology careers are a good fit for an ISFJ? But before I can answer please consider subscribing to the channel so I can continue to spread the gospel of Chrono Trigger being the literal best video game of all time, and hit the alert bell so you can get notified when I go live. That being said, What’s up ego hackers? This is the CS Joseph Podcast. I’m CS Joseph here to answer or respond to your questions on anything union analytical psychology, or the four sides of the mind. And the source of today’s question is Bella poli policy.
No, I think I said that correctly. I hope I did. And here it is on Quora. And there are already two answers.
Monroe caselle, teenage INFJ Enneagram nine w one, I would guess possibly careers where you can work with troubled kids who have family home issues, or where you work with people living with a disability. iossef Jays are known to be some of the kindest, if not the kindest of the 16 types. They are practically living saints. I mean, really, and I know a few and it’s such a pleasure to know them.
They’re absolutely lovely. Okay. I’m gonna stick with the context, this question being specific to psychology careers. So, to which I have to ask immediately, what the hell is a psychology career? Is this psychiatry? Is this being a therapist? Is this being like a social worker? Helping people with, you know, disabilities, or special needs, etc? Is the speech help? Like what exactly I’m sure there’s like a huge wide variety of psychology careers.
But I guess the main point that these two people answering here on Quora trying to make is that the fact that iossef Jays are very kind, if they’re properly trained in areas of psychology or psychiatry that they could definitely make that a great career. And I absolutely haven’t agree. In fact, I actually have an ISFJ friend of mine, who is a social worker. He’s one of the best social workers I have ever met.
And I have a lot of respect for him and everything that he has been able to do in his life, at least since I’ve known him in high school. And his name is Malcolm, totally, totally awesome, dude, social worker, and the stories that he tells me of all these people that he’s worked with, and all their suffering and whatnot, it just really boggles his mind. And he hates it, and even makes his ENTP subconscious upset too, because from its pragmatic point of view, society, the affiliative system of society is not actually conducive to helping people with these special needs. And he’s, he hopes that they can have more funding and more capability and more options and more choices to actually provide people who provide for people who have special needs, like for example, he helps them get housing helps them get employed.
He also helps them acquire, you know, prescription drugs that they need, etc. And he helps facilitate this program within the town that he lives in, in Washington State. So which is pretty cool. And he did have to undergo psychology training in order to be a social worker.
But you know, that’s not to say that he’s a psychologist, that’s not to say that, you know, he’s like some kind of psychiatry, psychiatric therapist of some kind, he does hypnotherapy, etcetera, which I’m sure an INFJ would be capable, and all of those things if they apply themselves. So that’s one of the best parts about iossef J’s is that if an INFJ applies themselves, they could potentially do anything, doesn’t mean they’ll be the best at doing that thing. But they can do it. And they can basically do anything that they set their mind to, etc.
Which is awesome. And then if they really, really want to, like, you know, reach mastery, then they would have to put in the work, which would be 10 to 20,000 hours worth of effort to reach mastery and a particular skill, which that’s actually done. Oftentimes, you know, if you read the book, by Robert Greene, known as mastery, and iossef J is able to achieve mastery, and ISFJ is able to win the race, they start off lacking talent, but their talent really becomes their experience. So anywhere in ISFJ applies themselves like the tortoise versus the hare, if they’re willing to put in the hard work and be the tortoise they can become more successful than the rabbit or the hare basically, according to the story and they will win the race, right? And it’s because no one can outlast them.
No one can out endure them. But, you know, in terms of like careers, would I recommend an ISFJ get into psychology? Not really, I really wouldn’t. I mean, if they’re like if they’re on the frontlines directly helping people okay, yeah, sure. That’s, that’s something different.
Like, you know, being a social worker, etc. or working in government, working with special needs, maybe homeless shelters, those kinds of things, and knowing basic psychology sure to get them through that situation with all the different people that they’re having to be in contact with on a regular basis and help those people. Yeah, sure, that’s fine. But to what I recommend, and ISFJ actually being a clinically certified diploma, all this big, you know, thing to be a psychological therapist? No, not really, I wouldn’t.
And that’s because of Te trickster, te trickster, they can just believe just about anything. But then, when it’s mixed in with Introverted Sensing hero, they often choose the beaten path. And when it comes to psychology, I maintain that the beaten path of psychology, in terms of Freud, even young in certain situations, but mostly Freud, and Freud is to weigh too heavily relied on, as well, as you know, some of the other famous psychologists out there, psychology really is a philosophy of the mind at the end of the day. And this is one of the reasons why it’s accused of being a soft science or pseudoscience.
That being said, I will turn it into a hard science before I die. And I know exactly how I’m going to and all the data that will prove that it is a hard science, but just give me a little bit of time before I can actually pull that off a couple years is all I would need. It won’t even be hard. But the point is, is that like this An ISFJ really thrive in this area of career being a therapist.
No they don’t, they actually kind of end up feeling completely overburdened. Combined with their FY credit. It’s like, Well, I’m not good enough to be in this position anyway. So it’s better for an INFJ to literally be on the front lines and do the grunt work of, you know, maybe even working under psychologists and being those social workers and social workers have psychologists on call or they could set up appointments or those kinds of things.
They really need to be on the front lines and not actually be the source. You know, if you’re like trying to find like a really good career for yourself as an INFJ, learn marketing and sales like seriously, that’s probably the best thing you could do for yourself. Read Russell Brunson. Read Ryan Holiday, read Jeff Walker, and Chet Holmes, you know, these these types of authors, he started go to CS joseph.ly, forward slash reading, actually, get yourself a free Kindle or Audible account, get an Audible account, get a free book, and then scroll down.
And you can see the accordion that has the entrepreneurship 15 Learn, read all these books, and you’ll know more about business and marketing than most people do on the entire planet. And you could take that full course of books, and learn it all, instead of subjecting yourself to a lot of debt and learning bullshit at a university that’s not actually useful to you. So you might want to consider these things, these options as it were. So anyway, folks, do I really maintain that psychology careers are good for fit for a nice update, and not really I kind of don’t, they just need to be more focused on being on the front line and maybe supporting a psychologist or a psychiatrist in some capacity.
But in terms of them being the focus of their education in their career, I probably have to say no, given their challenges with FYI critic, te trickster, as well as mixing them with Introverted Sensing, being systematic and very traditional. I don’t think it’s the most appropriate approach for their skills, you know, quite frankly. So that’s not to say that they can’t do it, but I think they’d be far more fulfilled doing other things.
