What is the current consensus on nature vs. preferences?
Is it - we tend to grow into our natures, so preferences become conformed to what we are best at over time? Or, is a theoretical distinction maintained between nature and preferences? Are types based on nature preferences or both? What should be the case? Is this a false dilemma? Just seeking to gather in the latest consensus for reference.

When I was first in college, I took many career tests trying to find my niche. I recall one set of exams said I had the aptitude and motivation to be an astronomer yet my daily work preferences with respect to lifestyle were that of a performing artist. I thought that was interesting because the two were very much out of sync from expectation.
