My heart was aching for her. That is empathy, not sympathy.
45 Pieces of Career Advice to Advance in Your Job - The Muse
But then, I had to fight back tears of joy when a kid on the opposing team hit one out of the park and got a home run - how exciting that must have been for him! I didn't even know him! That's also empathy. But I couldn't suppress the grin on my face and that got me strange looks from a couple of the kids on my own team, the one I was coaching! I would say that both sympathy and empathy go hand in hand because to understand you have to be able to feel it too? Wow, I've always felt people more than anything This is an interesting observation.. When I took a look at where I fell along the scale for thinking and feeling my score was almost dead center, with just a small fraction leaning in the 'feeling' side of things.
I was told by a psychologist that the labels themselves do not reveal as much as where you fall along each scale of the spectrum and that you also have to consider how different situations can exercise or bring out different aspects of our personality. This is true. Actually, one common mistake with MBTI is that they define feeling-types as those who prefer emotions over logic. However, the term feeling means that we prioritize our values over logic. I really have always had a problem with the stereotype that INFPs are overly idealistic, illogical airy fairies.
That is a key factor to keep in mind: Feeling vs thinking does not talk about rationality or ability to think in a complex, analytical way. There are many INFPs that actually value intellectualism and rationality.

So they might actually show up in fields like philosophy or research where they can write but about something they value. Thank you so much, I've been wondering about this too! INFP's and F's for that matter "prioritize" emotions, human relationships, and morals. This is not "illogical" but highly logical due to the need for positive human relationships in this life and maybe the next.
INTP's and T's for that matter "prioritize" logic, cause and effect, and principles. This is a great observation. I live in a deeply emotional and relational world, and I seek out facts and data and apply logic to them with a high degree of rigor and consistency because I find it is extremely helpful in revealing what the emotions I'm feeling or perceiving from others actually are. I'm constantly seeking for better ways to more accurately 'see clearly', if that makes sense, as seeing the accurate context surrounding emotions or reactions helps me tease out the nuances, and that's exciting to me.
If I don't seek out facts and just really on my perceptions, then I am prone to building an entire understanding of things based on my assumptions, and that can lead to decisions and behaviors that aren't in alignment with who I want to be. I'd say it's a learned skill, but not especially difficult. The first time it really pays off because you asked someone to clarify something you thought you knew, and it turns out you were wrong and the follow up conversation helps you get better insight - well, you'll be hooked.
I love that, I'm not going into the deep shit here but basically 'learn something from a different perspective, learn from your own mistakes, always admit and always be interested to learn for better understanding', its makes people better to just do that, I don't see anything wrong with admitting you're wrong, in my case as an honest stupid moment mostly, but sometimes as a selfish effed up moment I agree and disagree. The thing to remember is that the types are all on a spectrum. I personally test close to the midpoint between N and T which makes people perceive me as being very logical at times.
And I do like facts, but I struggle when my logic and intuition are at odds. Personality is never clear cut and is ever evolving. The descriptions would help my coworkers understand me better.

You're absolutely correct about this. Kerim not verified says So true! Brian Rea Valdez not verified says Courtney not verified says Sort order. One of the most common behaviors when we are stuck in a job that doesn't gratify us anymore is to hold on to it, waiting for a change of luck or better times and opportunities to come around.
In a general climate of uncertainty and economic downturn, perseverance seems to be the safest choice. It happens, though, that our need to change direction will become painfully obvious at some point: the circumstances we have been relying on for years fall apart, and we inevitably start looking around us for someone to blame. Hanger, frustration and uneasiness start poisoning our relationships, causing an accumulation of negative energy that will destroy marriages, family harmony and, in some cases, even cause chronic depression and health challenges.
The truth is that we have probably downplayed or completely buried our talents and true nature since a young age, in order to make room for what is sensible and expected from us, a job that pays the bills but leaves our souls empty and stranded on the wrong life-path. Almost like driving on foreign lands without GPS. Our talents are our only true compass and, if uncovered and cultivated, they will guide us toward fulfillment and self-development.
But how do we recognize these talents and integrate them in our current life course?
How do we convert the sense of dislocation and fear of change, that is preventing us from moving forward, into the very fuel that will raise our consciousness and propel us into a new career? Whether you're skeptical or not about the use of numerology, sun signs, and intuition as a path to self-knowledge and personal renovation, you will find Sue Frederick's message to be inspiring and thought-provoking.
Combining her precognitive skills with her vast background as a journalist and career advisor, Frederick embraces mystical teachings, meditation techniques, quantum physics' principles of human intellect as pure physical energy, as tools to unveil the destiny roadmap and life mission encoded in the numbers of our birth date. I am sure the theories explored by Frederick in I See Your Dream Job, albeit interesting and fascinating, may raise a few eyebrows among those who would rather dismiss the connection between destiny and numbers as an entertaining topic, more suitable for the horoscope section of a glossy magazine.
Consider that numerology, the ancient system according to which numbers carry a meaning and the sum of the numbers in our birth date reveal our life mission, has an illustrious pedigree in mystic, mathematician and phylosopher Pythagoras B. Not to mention the endorsement of quantum physicists and PhDs such as William A. Tiller and Amit Goswami in support of psychic phenomena perfectly explained by physics: "When individual minds focus their attention on anything, a quantum energy surge occurs, which has a physical and measurable effect on our reality I wouldn't argue with these guys I'd rather keep an open mind.

And you? Oct 09, Kathy rated it liked it Shelves: own. I always pick up these kinds of books thinking that THIS one will be the silver bullet I've been looking for That's not to say that I think numerology is complete bunk. In fact, this book showed me pretty clearly that it is on target in a broad sense for me and friends whose birthdays I know. Sue's analysis of my number I'm a 4 confirmed my approach to things and why I am where I am, and the I always pick up these kinds of books thinking that THIS one will be the silver bullet I've been looking for Sue's analysis of my number I'm a 4 confirmed my approach to things and why I am where I am, and then throw in the Sagittarius part and I see why I'm bored to tears.
But career change is like meditation - no one can do it for you.
The path to where I think I need to be is inevitably rocky, and despite the psychic promise of numerology, no one is shining a light on what that path is, exactly. There's no blueprint for a Sagittarius 4, or any other number - we're all unique, after all. Surprisingly given my initial expectations of the book , the biggest "take-away" for me was the second half, where she talks about how to approach where I am right now. She reminded me that if I'm not happy open, positive, forward-looking where I am right now, it's unlikely that positive changes in my path will open up.
She got me to sit on my butt again meditate and to remember what I'm grateful for.
