I am one of the approxiamately 1% of males in the United States who is INFP.  Along with that I am a "cancer" and to top it off I also am gay.  I didn't find out my personality type until 7 years ago, and yesterday took the MBTI yesterday and it came out with the same result.  I recently retired from my full-time good paying job.  I want to work again, but not sure if anything fulfilling is out there.  Anyone have a similar experience, personality type and ever feel a bit lost?

Thanks! -J

Totallt me, I'm a 20 year old ENFP (but consider myself as an INFP honestly). And I'm also feeling very scared and confused. I'm studying Electrical Engineering (a very well paid career in my country, and reason why many people is pressuring me to finish it) but honestly, I feel that I don't belong to that career. I'm feeling very lost and scared and I'm not sure to what career change because I'm very confused and uncertain of what choice to make.

I also am an INFP. I couldn't settle for the mundane work...I was a label and logo designer but felt it was too racked with silly ninny's, (drama) so that I left. Worked in electronics and tranned in that area (appealed to my needle point abilities as an artist that I was school in as a youth) for 12 years (they closed doors, so I had to move on). Then I found myself as a finish carpenter for 8 years (again the niggly bits I so loved and lovely to work with men soley), then finally back to rest in electronics in R&D medical area with predonimantly men. I dislike drama and that's why I haven't gone mainstream in the arts. I enjoy hidding away. Would love to hear if you found anything you love yet.

I'm a cancer sign too, and deeply confused about my sexuality, but that's kind of normal as I am a teen. I'm also feeling pressure to choose what I want to go into in the future and feeling extremely confused and worried that I don't know myself enough and the direction I am leaning towards (Nutrition and Dietetics) is not open enough to give me freedom to change. But I'm kind of going to pick anything that I find really interesting to study (and take a chance on the extremely selective choir scholarships to get anywhere close to the music world that is my secret unrealistic dream) and focus on helping others as that is my main focus and direction in what I would want to work in, preferably in the preventative healthcare sector is the idea at the moment.
