Hey, all. Just wondering, and hoping for a bit of advice. How do you react when you discover a job environment is less than up-front? Like, management is corrupt/irresponsible, you're asked to sell something you know is bad for the consumer, or the promotion/performance-evaluation system is arbitrary or unjust?
I'm starting to notice a pattern in my own job history, and I was curious if this is an issue with other INTPs, as well. Of the last four jobs I've had (over a decade), I left three of them because I lost interest/respect for the environment. Not because I was outraged and refused to work or anything. It's just once I saw the flaw in the system, I couldn't unsee
it, and I lost all interest in playing my part in the machine. Disinterest led to apathy, which led to quitting before things got bad. I'm one of the hardest working people out there when all my attention is devoted to a task, but lose my respect and I struggle to summon even minimal levels of interest.
Anyone else have this problem, or have any strategies for curbing the apathy?
