About not being “naturally” good at tech

I started thinking about this because I just took that mbti personality test, and apparently I’m an INFJ. Irrespective of the bogus-ness of online personality quizzes I felt a bit discouraged when reading that the professions suitable for this personality type involve Social Services, Health Care and the Arts and Humanities. This made me remember my time in high school (or gymnasiet as it’s called in Sweden). I really wanted to be good at math and science and I spent most of my time on those subjects but I always had an easier time with the subjects relating to the “softer” disciplines, such as social science, language and psychology. I had an easier time writing essays than solving math problems. Anyway, I remember that I was talking to my psychology teacher about what I was going to study at college, and he was surprised when I said that I was going to study engineering. He said that I seemed to be a person more inclined towards the humanities. And he was probably completely right about that. As a child I didn’t play with lego, I read books of fiction (that might have something to do with gender norms too, and the fact that I wasn’t given legos, but that’s a different discussion). I wrote stories and while I as a small child dreamt of being a pirate or an “adventurer” (which I apparently thought was a completely normal occupation) I later started gravitating more towards dreams of becoming an author or a librarian, or really anything book-related. I can’t remember when that changed. I stopped writing. I became an “emo” as they called it and spent my early teenage years with futile activities such as crying, cutting myself and listening to metal. I was such a cliché. Maybe that’s when it changed? Maybe I became more jaded and realised that being a novelist isn’t a reliable career option, so I started reviewing the other alternatives. I’d also become more anti-social, crossing on having social phobia, and I knew I didn’t want to work with anything too extroverted/relating to working with people. Then, when I was in the age of 16-18, I started to study more, and I especially spent a lot of time studying math and science. I guess I just thought those subjects seemed more … useful? And you seemed “cooler” and “smarter” if you were good at them? The thing is, the more time I spent studying those subjects the more fun I thought they were. Then I started studying computer science in one of the major tech-universities in Sweden, and I was so scared. I had never coded before. I didn’t know that much about computers even. I just knew I wanted to study something related to problem solving/engineering and this seemed like a good “medium” for it (and also, it’s very easy to find IT-jobs here). But yeah, I was very scared that everyone in my program would be genius programmers and I was half prepared to fail most of my courses and subsequently drop out. Three years later, and I haven’t dropped out so far. I still don’t know if this is the field for me. I guess the point I’m trying to make is that for some people there isn’t that one field, that one profession that makes sense. For some people there are so many options, and among them there might be a multitude that would work perfectly. And I think I’m going to stick with this field, because it’s creative, it’s fun and it’s hard. And even though I’ve never felt more stupid in my life than in these three years (fun/super cringey story: at the first day of uni they asked which favorite programming languages people had and I was supposed to write down the answers of the people in my group. Someone said C# and I wrote it down like “C sharp”. I had of course never heard of it. People were shaking their heads when they saw what I’d written, and I didn’t understand why) I don’t regret starting this program. I don’t regret my choice. I feel like I’ve learnt so much these three years, and I look forward to my master. I am excited about this. And I am determined to work hard. And fail. And continue to work hard. And when I feel sick of coding I’m going to read a book. I’m sorry if this is a cheezy end to this blog post, I practically want to vomit reading it myself. Anyway, I was a bit cheered up when I read this passage about INFJ-people:

“Psychology and counseling are other obvious choices, but overall, INFJs can be exceptionally difficult to pigeonhole by their career paths. Perhaps the best example of this occurs in the technical fields. Many INFJs perceive themselves at a disadvantage when dealing with the mystique and formality of "hard logic”, and in academic terms this may cause a tendency to gravitate towards the liberal arts rather than the sciences. However, the significant minority of INFJs who do pursue studies and careers in the latter areas tend to be as successful as their T counterparts, as it is iNtuition – the dominant function for the INFJ type – which governs the ability to understand abstract theory and implement it creatively.“

Hey there again!

I felt as though my introduction post was too vague. So here is my introduction post part 2! 

About me:

  • My name is Dani but call me D 
  • I’m from the Philippines
  • I’m 17 years old and in the 11th Grade
  • Music is life
  • Love is love is love is love is love is love is love 
  • I am literal Hamiltrash

About my Education:

In Grade 11 here is a preparatory to college and so is Grade 12. So in those grades I will be taking up HUMSS which translates to Humanities and Social Sciences. For college, I am taking into consideration AB Sociology or AB Philosophy or both for my first course. For my second, I’m going to be taking Media Arts. 

People who inspired me: 

The people who inspired me to restart my studyblr again are my friends. I don’t know what 2 of my friend’s urls are because one doesn’t have one yet and one didn’t tell me. The one that inspired me to start again is @siriusstudying and I’m so grateful for her. Love you, Lyssa. 

Other than them, the people who inspired me to start a studyblr again are: 
@studyclarity @dungeonstudy @ashistudies @loverssweets @moonshinestudies @lemonsstudy @kyoko-studies @briellestudies @einstetic and honestly a lot more. I follow these accounts on my other account and I can’t find the others but some I found when I created the account and it made me want to do this even more.

So which humanities major makes the most after college?

Among people who graduate with humanities and liberal arts degrees, history majors fare best, with median wages of $54,000 annually. Theology majors rank lowest, at just $43,000 a year. Philosophers take in $51,000 annually, as do area specialists like Latin American studies majors (although it should be noted their degrees are typically multidisciplinary, and thus tend to include social science courses). Going to grad school changes things though.

A How-To Guide For A Successful Study Environment

While studying at home has many benefits such as
working on school work at your own schedule,
not getting behind,
staying organized,
and being motivated can be challenging.
Below are 10 helpful tips to finish your at-home studies and education successfully.

1.) STUDY IN CHUNKS

Take breaks when you need them.
Just like school schedules,
breaks are necessary to help you rest your mind
and regain your attention.

2.) USE DAYLIGHT HOURS

Sleep is the best thing for you.
Get your studying done during the day
to avoid late nights and a tired mind.

3.) EAT PROPERLY

Food is your fuel for thought.
Eating healthy food will give you energy and brainpower.
Always eat a good breakfast before logging onto your computer.

4.) STUDY ACTIVELY

Find creative ways to keep your mind active.
Try studying or reading while on a treadmill
or listening to a class lecture while walking around the block.

5.) FIND THE RIGHT PLACE TO STUDY

Create a study environment that will avoid distractions.
Control noise levels
and study under good lighting.
Do you need complete silence around you
or do you need some music?
Find what works best.

6.) STRUCTURE YOUR STUDIES

Keeping to a schedule will help you stay on top of your studies.
You may have to turn down going to the movies with your friends,
but you will be thankful in the long run.

7.) PLAN AHEAD

Planning in advance never hurts.
In most cases,
it will help keep your studies and personal life balanced.

8.) DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP

Even though you may study alone at home,
you should always feel comfortable emailing or calling your professor if you’re having a tough time.
But don’t wait until the last minute.

9.) DRESS FOR SUCCESS, EVEN AT HOME

Studies show that dressing up,
even a little,
helps boost confidence.
If you study in your pajamas,
you may have more difficulty getting focused
and feeling good about what you’re accomplishing.

10.) JOIN AN ONLINE STUDY GROUP

Depending on the subject,
it can sometimes be better to study alone.
But in other cases,
forming a study group or online chat group can be to your advantage.
