Careers I would consider are:
Librarian, Teacher, Editor, Author
Introverts: Like to rehearse things before saying them, and need privacy and quiet time alone for concentration. Like to focus your attention inwardly on your ideas,impressions and thoughts. Want to understand the world before you experience it. Are sometimes called shy. People often see you difficult to get to know, as you are reserved and private. Have a small number of special friends. Need to recharge your batteries by spending time alone as interacting too much with others can leave you feeling drained. Worried your parents because they thought you were spending too much time alone.
Sensing: Prefer to take in information through your eyes, ears and other senses to find out what is actually happening. Focus on facts and rely on what can be measured or documented. Like to do things that are practical and can yield some tangible results. Trust your past experiences and prefer established ways of doing things. Prefer to describe things literally. You like specific answers to specific questions. For example, when you ask, "what time are we leaving?" you prefer "at three‐fifteen" rather than, "some time this afternoon".
Thinking: Tend to stay cool, calm and collected in situations when others are upset. Think it's more important to be fair and truthful rather then being liked. Tend to tell people if you think if you disagree with them, rather than same nothing just so that they won't get upset. Make decisions based on logic. You like to weight up all information objectively. Remember numbers and figures more readily than faces and names. May be seen as overly blunt and uncaring. You consider truthfulness to be more important tan tact.
Judging: Like to have things settled and decided. Find it difficult to concentrate if the environment is disorganized or messy. Like to make 'to do' list and enjoy checked off completed tasks. Like to have a place for everything and everything inits place. Prefer to develop a plan and schedule for tasks that need to be done. Need to finish your work before you can go and have fun. Are always on time, and can't understand why this is not important to others.

I would still like to be an author as well, but I did not see it as a possible job to match my skills. I'm hoping I just missed it and that it is a good fit for my skills.
Some of my most important values are:
Family, Environment, Work-Life Balance, Fun and Humor, Honesty and Integrity and Location.
Jobs I am considering are: Author, Librarian and Teacher.
Looking back on everything, I think that all the jobs I am considering fit well with my personality, skills, values, etc. I think I could be happy with any of the jobs I mentioned. My mission is to have fun, be helpful and happy, enjoy whatever I do, and be close to family and friends while helping everyone around me.
