I'm in my last year of high school & having a VERY difficult time choosing what I want to pursue in university. I'm thinking of pursuing law in graduate school because I am a very good writer and speaker. But the problem is that I also have many interests in other areas - math, science, and business. I just don't know what to do for an undergrad degree. My first love is writing but I don't want to do an English degree. I like analyzing issues, and enjoy studying politics, but I almost feel like it's too easy...like maybe I should be doing something more difficult, like chemistry or biology, even though I don't necessarily excel at science.

Does anyone know what are characteristic careers or majors for type 5's? I am personally quiet, but can be outspoken and silly at times. I like debating in class, and am somewhat of a natural leader, so I feel somewhat conflicted. My three highest personality types are type 5 (7 points), type 3 (6 points) and type 7 (5 points).

If anyone has any insight, that would be much appreciated. I have a feeling that type 5's could be inventors, scientists, or analytical writers - the creative forces in society. But do you think there are many type 5 lawyers out there? What's weird is that although I got type 5 on this site, I got type eight (the leader) on Emode.com's Enneagram test..which is quite different!! But I think that type 5 better characterizes my personality.
