How does one find their place in the world?
I am a classic INTP; I have been told that I am bright and creative but I also have the characteristic lack of decisiveness and organization that comes with being INTP. I read deeply and analyze everything but cannot complete a task to save my life. As I grow older I am increasingly driven mad by this... I have over 130 college credit hours and no degree. I work in an industry that is entirely unsuited for me and yet I stay put due to fear of unemployment.
Are there any other INTP's out there that can help me sort out the mess in my head? I want to make a difference in the world... but I am afraid the hard sciences are a bit too detail orientated for me. Personality guides suggest I have strong intrapersonal intelligence and yet the practical side of me fears to spend money getting a degree that will not yield a job immediately after college.
Somehow I fear I will be asking these questions well into my 70's... (I am 37).
