Fulfilling Jobs for Diplomat Personality Types

Aug 10, 2015

By Devon Barrs

Not sure of which personality you most align with? Take the test over at 16personalities.

There are sixteen different personality types broken up into four groups: diplomats, analysts, sentinels, and explorers, and everyone aligns with one. These different personality types affect our lives and the way we tend to want to live. Finding a fulfilling career is tough; many people will jump from one profession to another in search of that one place where they wouldn’t mind forming a routine around. Others search for the job that will give them the most fulfillments with the most freedom, while some just can’t seem to stand still in one field.

This article will explore several career paths for the Diplomatic personality types. There are four types that fall under this category: INFJ, INFP, ENFJ, and ENFP.

INFJ (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

This personality type is dedicated to helping others, idea driven and thrive in work that they can find meaning in. Those who fall under this type are very insightful, intelligent individuals and therefore tend to lend themselves over to their creativity. Jobs in healthcare, science, and artistic fields can be quite rewarding for the INFJ personality type.

Photography is a creative field that allows INFJs to express themselves and yields a great amount of creative freedom, not to mention photography work is in good demand.

INFJs are referred to as the counselor of the Diplomat personality group. So its no surprise that they can find purpose in helping others and that desire to do so can be reflected in the role of social worker. This job involves the ability to walk in another shoes and to understand them in hopes to make a positive impact on another person’s life.

Alternative health is another field where an INFJ can find meaning in improving the overall quality of someone’s life. Work such as massage therapist, physical therapist, or nutritionist is a good way their desire to help others with their intellectual ability.

INFP (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving)

INFPs are mediators of sorts. Imaginative idealists, they look for the good in everyone and in the world. These are your calm and reserved types that thrive in solo work.

Writing is a flexible career that the expressive INFP will thrive in, and in this current day where writers are needed to create content from corporate to creative fields, there is ample work for the INFP.

INFPs are long-term thinkers; they tend to invest a lot of time in preparing for their future as well as that future of those around them. Work as a teacher can be rewarding for INFPs. This isn’t due only to fact that they are extremely creative and inspirations, but they also value long lasting relationships and take the time to foster that.

INFPs are true artist and will thrive in any artistic field. Music is one of the better choices for those who fall under that personality type. INFPs look at the bigger picture but tend to dislike the small minute details. Music is one of those collaborative environments where they are able to express their big ideas while others help work on the in between to make it happen.

ENFJ: (Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

ENFJs are charismatic leaders that are full of passion. These teacher personality types find fulfillment in group work. They are altruistic by nature and take pride when others recognize their work.

ENFJs may enjoy work in public relations, event management, and like other Diplomats, work in creative fields such as photography. Unlike the INFJ and INFP, the ENFJ has much potential when it comes to interacting with a team for extended periods of time, therefore work in media production may suit these types well.

Their ability to connect with others makes them perfect for work in entertainment as a director, or even a producer. The film market is steadily growing and more opportunities are arising in this thriving industry.

ENFJs can also find work as a lawyer extremely fulfilling; they will thrive in this field where they advise and represent clients in court while effectively communicating to the court of law.

ENFP (Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving)

ENFPs are campaigners or inspirational leaders that use a combination of logic and empathy to connect and lead others. They are not controlling and have no desire to do so.

These personality types will thrive in creative fields such as journalism, acting, and graphic/web design. Intellectual fields such as science and engineering gives the ENFP the opportunity to apply their intellect, while an interest in social issues can sprout a rewarding career in politics.

Blogging on issues that they are passionate about can be very stimulating while giving the ENFP the chance to make a living. Journalism provides the room to explore a wide array of topics while working on campaigns that they are passionate about.

Psychology is another field that allows this personality type to connect with others while guiding them through deep personal issues. This is rewarding in on its own since, like all Diplomats, ENFPs enjoy getting involved with others and listening to their problems.

The Diplomat personality types are caring, lovable people who value relationships and personal virtue over all else. They work out of passion and need to find a career path where they know they are helping others. To explore a list of career paths for your personality type, take the test at 16personalities.com.

Your Dreams Are Possible According To 21 Year Old Entrepreneur

Aug 5, 2015

By Laura Duncanson
Do you remember what you were doing when you were 21 years old? A few of you were probably in college studying while others were partying as much as they could due to their new sense of being legal. Not many of us at that age knew what we wanted to do with life, it was something that we would deal with when we got older, but this is exactly the opposite mentality of our interviewee Darron Hilaire.  Darron is a 21 year old activist and entrepreneur from the Turks and Caicos Islands who has a heart for youth and social development. At 21 he has already successfully started a television series, spearheaded an annual activist movement as well as single handedly changed how this small country sees journalism.

Turks and CaicosDarron Hilaire is a growing entrepreneur, former journalist, former youth parliamentarian and writer from the beautiful country of Turks and Caicos Islands. He was one of the few male anchors, sports reporter and also owns his own production and events company Hilaire studios. Currently, he’s the marketing and communications executive for a local telecommunication company known as Lime and in his spare time likes to read and inspire others. The Good News Notebook Magazine (GNN) asked what was the biggest obstacle he has had to face so far, he said self-imposed restrictions and self-defeating thoughts which he counters with reassurance and his faith in God.

Despite his humbling beginnings, growing up fatherless, enduring abuse and depression, Darron still finds himself reaching out and passionate about being a change in his community. He is looked upon as an inspirational individual in the community already as people are starting to see him for what he stands for and flock to hear his wise words and input. When asked about his future in politics he says he sees himself more as an activist, a bridging gap between the people and the government just ensuring things get done. His annual event Manpower TCI, which is targeted towards getting the community together to work on the alleviation in crime and cause a change in the mentality of the country, is just one of the few things he’s doing in the community. He also hosts his own weekly series Awakening Possibilities which main purpose is to tell the stories of successful individuals in life, marriage and business as a means of encouraging others. Both of these are fruits of his business Hiliare Studios. In the future he hopes to see himself and his business being taken to the Caribbean region and international.
GNN asked who inspired him the most, he listed 5 influential individuals Superintendent Kendall Grant, former Director of Youth Angela Musgrove, well known comedian Steve Harvey, global activist Oprah Winfrey and last but no means least God. These individuals saw in him what no one else did, inspired him on what a man should be when he lacked the necessary role model in the home, taught him about life as well as following your dreams. Out of these he said he’d like to meet Steve Harvey the most as he has so much to ask.

His advice for our readers about following their dreams is simple yet profound at the same time: your dreams are possible. He further went on to say,” until we believe our dreams are possible we won’t be able to access or invest in them“.

3 Steps To Help Manage Our Money

Jul 30, 2015

By Roberto Figueroa

Everywhere we go we hear about the importance of managing our money, and as we venture further into the complexities and routine of adult life, we discover that it is an important discipline to learn and master. Here are three steps we can take to set us on the right track.

Establish Goals
Goals help us focus our energy and effort. They give us an incentive to sacrifice certain things in order to achieve what we have set out to obtain. If we think about it, we are more likely to use those extra 50 dollars wisely if we are saving up or looking to invest it in something that will help us reach a goal. Goals could be anything from a new car, remodeling your home, paying off loans, to going on a vacation you normally wouldn’t be able to afford.
We begin doing this by first making a list of our goals and jot down where we would like to be or what we would like to acquire a month, a year, or five years from now. Then, let’s think about what are the most important things on our list and think about how to get there.

Evaluate
Now, let’s try to think about the ways we are using our money. Are we being wise? Are there ways we can cut back some of our expenses? Something as simple as eating at home more often instead of eating out can make a significant difference.

Budget
Though it can be tiring to hear about budgeting, it’s an effective way to insure we have enough money to pay the bills. But too many of us stop there. Once the bills are paid and we have dealt with our obligations, we stop managing our money and spend (or sometimes waste) the rest. Now, everyone has the right to enjoy what he or she earns, but creating a budget for the left over money, and placing a limit on how much to spend, is a good way to make sure we are not overspending. It also keeps us from living from paycheck to paycheck, a life style that can generate unwanted stress and insecurity.

Remodeling Tips to Refresh Your Home

Jul 19, 2015

If you have not done anything for years to refresh the visual appearance of your home it is time to reward yourself and your home by freshening it up. Many people tend to undertake big improvement projects pretty occasionally. Do-it-yourself project or a professional contractor – the choice is your but there are some pretty small things that can really make a huge impression.It is important to mention that many people aim at ecologically friendly home improvements. Going green in your home is not only about changing your housekeeping practices. Still, for green house cleaners London has many sensible solutions. Whether installing a solar panel, changing the light bulbs or simply having a nice green lawn to grow your own organic food, it is certainly a good idea to think of doing something green for your home and family.

house plants

The first thing is that a project should never be started without having a clear plan of what you want to improve, how and then – the way of proceedings. It may be a new flooring, installing carpets or deep cleaning the old ones, repairing your terrace and balcony and many more. Never rush into repairs as many people tend to make the mistake to not research their contractor well enough and blindly trust the company. Asking person who has experience and is satisfied with the work done it is a good idea on how to find the best one. Next up, if you are about to hire the contractor, the company’s representatives must remember you to carry out an inspection to assess the work to be done, how long is needed for the project to be finished, and more. You can always ask for opinions and solutions for a particular repair or for the overall appearance.

Then, it is all about the budget. This is the only thing left for consideration before actually starting the process. Make sure you calculate everything perfect and always remember to have some extra money for unpredicted circumstances. A common mistake is to start improving your home without being sure if you are going to fit in your budget.Interior improvements significantly depend on the type of furniture, wall paint and accessories chosen. Fresh paint can really make your home shine.

Then, it is not all about the appearance of your furniture, it is about comfort and convenience. If everything fits and there is enough space left around the rooms, then your choices are right. Still, cleaning the furniture is as important as choosing the right pieces. This is why for furniture cleaning, London has many reliable service providers that can make sure your furnishing looks as new as possible.

Six Strategies to Maintain Your Femininity in the World of Business

Jun 29, 2015

If you are a woman in leadership, or own your own business, I’m guessing you have heard something like this before:
“You have to be tough, aggressive, and rigorously competitive. Don’t show weakness or vulnerability. If you do, you’ll instantaneously lose respect. Emotions have no place in business!”

But, if you have ever seen a momma bear protecting her cubs, you know that the feminine force is in no way weak.

Natalie Peace Contributor at Forbes Magazine alludes to this metaphor in her article entitled, “The Awesome Power of Femininity in Business” and goes on to say:

“Visionary women have helped shift the landscape, showing us new models of leadership that include natural feminine qualities like softness, kindness, giving and emoting. Authentic relating has become the focus of many organizations committed to fostering team dynamics where people feel safe and supported in doing their best work.”
http://www.forbes.com/sites/nataliepeace/2012/05/09/the-awesome-power-of-femininity-in-business/

 

Things to Consider in Cultivating Your Authentic Feminine Self in the World of Business:
(These concepts, in great part, are inspired by my mentor and coach extraordinaire, Stacey Martino)

•  You don’t have to be taught HOW to be feminine. The truth is, you know how instinctively. The learning process comes into play in learning how to drop your protective barrier that keeps you from being the natural you.
•  Femininity isn’t about how you look. It’s not about your clothing, hairstyle, make-up or jewelry. Instead, it’s about you are ‘being’, which emanates from the inside.
•  The core quality of femininity is openness. Feminine energy takes it all in, is vulnerable, nurturing, welcoming, energetic, seeks pleasure, able to feel everything and enjoys the ebb and flow of a wide range of emotions.
•  It is a woman’s ultimate power; femininity is NOT a weakness. Just ask Super Woman! She is full of power, yet incredibly feminine.
•  Consider cultivating your femininity in your personal life through dancing, taking bubble baths, listening to music, laughing, burning candles, using potpourri, incense and/or perfume, or putting on your favorite soft or silky outfit.
•  Ask yourself questions like: How open am I on a regular basis on a scale of 1 to 10? In what ways do I shut down to protect myself? How do I pull away, care less and distance myself?

To Keep Your Virgin Hair Extensions From Shedding & Tangling

Jun 11, 2015
It does not matter what vendor you purchase your hair from your virgin hair will shed. If your natural hair can shed of course hair on a track/weft will shed also, it’s normal.

Excessive shedding, thick strands and clumps of hair should not be coming out. To make sure your hair does not shed excessively follow the instructions below.

Do not co-wash hair using shampoo. Use conditioner only. Shampoos are only meant to clean the hair from products and oil build up. The excessive use of shampoo can actually cause hair to dry, harden and frizz up which leads to breakage and shedding.

Do not punch the sew-in needle through the wefts during installation; this leads to increase in shedding and lessens the quality of the hair. If you are getting a sew-in weave, make sure that your stylist sews in the wefts by looping and tying the weave thread under and over the weft.

Keep the use of curling, flat irons, and other excessive use of heating tools to a minimum. The more heat you use on virgin hair – the shorter the lifespan. As with your own natural hair, heat causes breakage and shedding. You can safely use heat when you apply a heat protectant to the hair because it will block the high temperatures and prevent hair breakage. Curling irons are not always necessary for styling. Flexi-rods, perm rollers, and steam roller will set your hair to your perfect desired style without heat. These items can be purchased at your local beauty supply retailer, Walgreens, Target or Walmart stores.

 Wear a satin scarf over your hair at night. A secure satin scarf will keep your hair from snagging, drying out and breaking during your sleep.

 Keep your hands out of your hair.  Playing in your hair causes damage. When you are constantly running your fingers and hands through your hair all the time, yanking, and tugging at the weft. Whether or not you realize it – you are pulling your hair out. Although it may take some getting used to, it’s very important to keep your hands out of your hair.

25 Year Old Solving A Problem with Local Job Fair

Jun 6, 2015

By Connie Alsobrook
Thomas Chastain Jr. is helping to solve a major problem in Rockdale County.  For the 2nd year in a row he has held a job fair to put people back to work. The Job Fair took place on June 3rd at Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 5290 in Rockdale, Georgia.  Rockdale  is the second smallest county in the state of Georgia, with a unemployment rate of 6.4% as of April 2015 and a population of 85,215.

Thomas Chastain

When Chastain was asked why he felt the need to hold such an event he stated, “The county Chairman & CEO Richard Oden said it was not in the county’s budget”. The bright young man did not let lack of finances stop him from helping his community. He started asking companies and individuals for any type of donation they could offer. Chastain had a budget of zero dollars when he hosted the first Annual Job Fair and a budget of $100.00 dollars this go around. Both Job Fairs drew over 300 hundred individuals, this is the number the poll collected, many applicants slipped past the poll and did not log in.

In 2 months his Facebook group, Rockdale Jobs Group, has put 88 Unemployed Rockdale Citizens back to work. (per Facebook page)

Chastain said he had few donors for this event, but the one that is a continuous supporter made a huge impact for both job fairs. Veteran of Foreign Wars (VFW Post 5290) in Rockdale has been the biggest supporter and sponsor. VFW donated their building and equipment to host the event.

The Job Fair brought some big companies out, like Pratt Industries, Future Staffing, Rockdale 911, Rockdale Fire Department, Rockdale Sheriff  Department, Southeast Sealing, and Banner Security to name a few. Pratt Industries and Southeast Sealing had a private area set up due to them hiring applicants of the spot. Former Rockdale Post 2 County Commission JaNice VanNess and current Post 1 county Commission Oz Nesbitt was also in attendance to show support for the event.

Here is the full list of businesses that participated:
Pratt Industries
Banner Security
Southeast Sealing

Primerica
Truss Components
GA Driving Academy
Medic Inc.
Rockdale Sheriff Department

Steps to Transform Your Future

May 22, 2015

Graduation time is here, and most students have their life planned out for at least the next 4 years minimum if they plan to attend college. 2 years if they are going to trade school or obtaining an associate’s degree.  Those that have obtained their degrees have many thoughts, plans, and goals in place that they are anxious to start working on. The Good News Notebook would like to help with keeping you positive and motivated while you take the next journey in your life.

 


As you give thought to your future – your future that may be 10 years; your future that may be five years; or your future that is 60 days away – you actually start pre-paving. And afterward, as you move into those pre-paved moment, and as that future turns into your present, you fine-tune it by saying ‘This is the thing that I now want.’ And those contemplation that you have set forth about your future, directly down to this minute when you are presently aiming what move you need to make, will all fit together to bring you decisively that which you now need to live.” – Abraham

The progressions we wish to get generally happen over time. In spite of the fact that we might want to bounce from beginning to end, and procure instant accomplishment, there are a couple of steps we have to take care of while moving in the direction of our objectives and dreams:
We have to realize what we need.
We have to accept that we can have what we need.
We have to escape from our own particular way by recognizing and discharging the objects that may be hindering our success.
We have to be willing to develop. Change inevitably calls for expanding our comfort places.
We have to follow through and take action that moves us in the course we wish to go.
We need individuals who have confidence in us and support us when doubt surface and the going gets intense.
We may need to learn new aptitudes or add to the ones we have so as to achieve the level of ability needed to make the lives we adore.
We should likewise create priorities, centering our consideration on the goals and dreams that matter most. This can be a challenge, particularly for those of us who have been taught to set our goals aside,
and concentrate on others’ needs first. Social standards and old ideal models may have us think other, yet wise keeping an eye on our dreams doesn’t make us selfish. It makes us solid, forms our self-regard and prompts self-satisfaction. As we learn to care for our dreams, we achieve a feeling of parity, and can care for others from a position of vitality, quality and wholeness.

As we change and develop, we turn into a greater gift to others. Our lives serve to move the individuals who witness our change and take into consideration new levels of recuperating and satisfaction for all concerned, we included.
Do you know what you want? If not, recall on the things that have brought you satisfaction and delight and start to do them. At that point, affirm that you should have a life you adore. Be willing to develop, and take inspired actions. Search out individuals who will champion you so you can take off to new levels of bliss and satisfaction, and find what you have to realize or know keeping in mind the end goal to understand your dream and goals.
Utilize the following affirmation as a day by day practice to remind yourself that you can have what you need and can accomplish it.
Affirmation: I recognize what I want and I have the strength needed to achieve it.

Here’s to a brilliant new future!
