What career should I choose?
Asked Jun 22, 2012, 08:32 PM
I'm 19 year old shy black female out of high-school and have no idea what to do with myself. I live at home, never worked (getting a job soon) I'm getting enrolled in CC soon but have no idea what I should go for. I'm racking my brain constantly trying to figure out questions like,"What am I good at?" "What do I like?" What am I passionate for?" If I could do anything in the world and money didn't matter what would I choose to do? and all I can think of is "Nothing." I just don't know and its frustrating me greatly. I tried a plethora of personality quizzes/test and nothing enthralls me. All I do is sit at home on the computer, playing MMOs, watching videos, and reading. Oh and I would like to go to the marines, navy, or air force but I'm not physical fit yet. (just a side note)
What I do know is:
-I don't mind getting dirty, wet, or working in extreme conditions (as long as it's not deadly.)
-Office type work looks extremely boring to me.
-Would prefer working with my hands instead of brain, but it's mostly a toss up doesn't matter really. *shrugs*
-I'm leaning more on the introverted spectrum so having to deal with people all day long would sap my energy pretty quickly.
-Family members tell me that I'm "good with computers" and writing.
-If the Myers Brigs Personality indicator is any help, I routinely tested as an ISFP.
-I don't like being rushed prefer working at my own pace, by myself or with a small group of coworkers.
-Don't care about being rich as long as I have enough to be able to live comfortably.
-Main goal would be able to live/work in Canada or Germany so any jobs highly sought after there would be super.
-Would like to be somewhat challenged if possible.
-Do not like "dressing up" unless its absolutely. mandatory.
-Not really good at math and science but I'll do my damnest to try and get better.
-I have poor verbal and written skills.
This is all I got. if what I wrote about doesn't help I'm truly sorry.
