    A guy would have some long arms to get you behind a bar! Otherwise there isn't much that's easy to get and economy proof.

    Legal assistant.
    Dental hygienist.
    LPN.
    Bartender.
    Stock broker.

    That's about all I got and the stock broker is clearly a joke.

    Bartending and waitressing is definately not a economy-proof job just ask all of them who are currently in Michigan. They are starving. Many bars and restaurants here have closed.

    Health care is where it's at. A friend of mine completed an associates degree in medical technology and does ultrasounds. It pays very well. As others have mentioned - nursing, therapy, medical technology (Echos, ultrasound, CAT scans, etc.). They are still hiring teachers in many areas of the country and it's a reasonably well paying and secure job.

    Here are the facts,

    I dont want a job that relys on the economy anymore

    I need to be able to achieve this goal in a very quick manner

    I need something that pays well

    I need something that I would be good at


    The school councelor recomended I go into engineering

    I thought I would be interested in Pathology

    I can only take one science class at a time due to schedualing conficts

    I hate learning math, but I love applying it

    I love science but have yet to take anything other than social sciences at this point

    I loathe paper work

    I also enjoy analytical psychology but I would never make a good councelor


    So I guess what I am looking for is some sort of direction between what I enjoy vs what I can do, and I dont even know where to start looking.

    Is there anyway if you guys know about a particular feild you can post the feild along with pros and cons and the time that the education generally takes to complete?
    Engineering doesnt sound like good advice to you.. it's heavily dependent on either construction (civil engineering) or manufacturing (the other sorts). Both of these rely on a growing economy, and are likely to see job cuts in a shrinking one.

    It's difficult to know what is secure and not too customer facing. The world needs more plumbers and will always need them. Just a thought.

    I don't wanna be rude but this is coming from an ISTP, for you to get a job and be happy I think is a pretty easy thing.

    I'm the only ENTP posting in here and while I don't know just how ENTP ThatGirl is or how being a woman changes some of the ENTP attributes I have I do know other female ENTPs and no matter the gender work is always our achilles heal.

    Do you have the same issues most of use have ThatGirl?

    Loss of interest once you master it?
    Inability to watch as STs and SFs do things in totally stupid inefficient ways?
    Not feeling like you're willing to trade your life for $xx an hour?
    Total and utter boredom with the menial?
    Wanderlust, thinking about what's better out there?

    Anyway, I'm sorry you're having a tough time with what to do right now, it hits home for sure.

    I'd suggest teaching. ENTPs tend to be good teachers.

    Make a prioritized list of things you would do if happiness and fulfillment were your only consideration. Cross off the ones that don't meet your other goals like earning a living, or replace them with similar occupations which do.

    I would like to say that I put those ideals behind me a long time ago. Now I understand that sucess is more important than fullfillment. Inevtably though I think that I should stick with things that change or are puzzely.

    I'm not a very good teacher. At all.

    If I knew then what I know now and could do any area that interested me,

    genetics research
    chemistry research and development
    criminal profiling


    obviously these are not options

    I wouldn't call what makes an ENTP an ENTP ideals. I would call them the parts of you that set you apart and I would be happy to have them even if they come with issues. Success is a term that means different things to different people. I won't try to guess your meaning however if you're equating money to success that will be futile for an ENTP as money is not your drive in life.

    Do something you love, fix problems for people and find solutions, that's where we thrive...

    These are all things that go with being an ENTP in your 20s, we mature very slowly and until we do life is not as easy as it is for most. After we mature I think it's easier provided we've learned to manage our issues.
