Can someone help me find a career?

I need to start college soon before it's too late, but I have NO IDEA what I want to do for a career. Am I alone in this or is it normal to still not know what you want to do? Please message me and add me if you would like to assist me. OR you can just tell me on this by replying. I like Ancient Civilizations, I like to learn, discover, give advice, research, observe, I like to understand children, psychology, the mind, 'afterlife', and so much more. Is there anything that screams out that could be a career for me? I really really really really like to learn about the mind and how it works and how you have untapped abilities and the supernaturalness about the mind. Lol I know supernaturalness isn't a word but I guess that's a way to describe it. Thanks in advance.

Your talk suggests that you are a philosophical type of a person so a research carrier would be good for you but monetarily that is the least paid field, so think twice before taking it.

I guess you're right. I don't know what I would want to be though. Is there "advice" type jobs that pay good? I wouldn't mind doing something like that. Thanks for answering my question sunita64. :)

hello chocopuffs, I believe the only one who can help you find a career is yourself. Take a course that you really like. That way you'll do everything to finish it. Land a job that you really enjoy and want.

No decides what career is best for you. Only you can do it for yourself. Now, since you have mentioned those things that interest you, it is best that you choose your career basing on those interests. Your passion will lead you to your career. It is good that you love what you do, because what is the use of being a doctor if that is not your passion. If you love what you do, it will not be work for you at all.
