> She complains about her problem of finding work which fits her interests. She's very fond of modern abstract art; 'I like it when art gives me something to ponder on...'. She had set up and run a government subsidised gallery for 5 years, enjoyed the contacts with the artists much and got into a depressive crisis when she had to close the gallery because of financial reasons. (she started crying during the interview) She says that she considers herself ' different' because she says she makes her choices ' by heart ', and the people she sees around her are more calculating with regard to career decisions. She doesn't like older art, abstract art for her is ' balm to the soul'. Now she works at a job which makes her depressive; she has to make al kinds of technical office apparatus work; but she's not interested in technical things. Its a volunteer job which she accepted because people asked her (someone got sick at the office and there was a vacancy) and she felt happy that the little money she got out of it allowed her to pay for her own household expenses and rent.

> What would be her likely type? (enneatype, Oldham, mbti >>> XFXX?)

Well Jan, this is a good one. I'm going to have to say she is an INFP/4w3..?? This is good practice for those of us who wish to better type others in the everyday world. I'll spread the word to other ennea-friends.
