You Are An ISFP
You are a gifted artist or musician (though your talents may be dormant right now).
You enjoy spending your free time in nature, and you are good with animals and children. Simply put, you enjoy beauty in all its forms and live for the simple pleasures in life. Gentle, sensitive, and compassionate - you are good at recognizing people's unspoken needs.
I think most of this is true! (pediatrician?) I definately need an unconventional job - although I guess I have one already, in a way. I dreamed early this morning that I was in a room with a group of people I didn't know and we were taking turns introducing ourselves. But when it was my turn, there were people talking and coming in & out of the room. I was frustrated and embarrassed by their lack of respect. I began several times and then stopped and got mad but didn't say anything.
Then, for some reason I started talking and kept talking in spite of the lack of attention. I started talking about my job with Bluemont and how I get to talk with artists and school staff and parents and help them arrange wonderful assembly programs for schools and what a great job it was.
I woke up and felt quite puzzled by the whole thing... I do think my job is pretty cool, but I have worked for Bluemont for 23 years and I've had a very hard time focusing on my job for the last several years. I think I really need to do something else, something more creative, and yet as a couple and a family I need to help keep Bluemont afloat for the next few years, until we get our girls through college.
So, yeah - it's a cool job, an unusual job, but I tend to be deeply ambivalent about my realtionship with my job. There are so many other things I would like to be doing with my time. Singing, weaving, knitting, spinning, dyeing, teaching, selling yarn, making things...
I am just back from a week at the Campbell Folk School, teaching a Knit to Felt class - more on this soon!
