    Physics is CHOCK-full of them, I'm sure engineering is up to their ears in them too.

    Research definitely has LOTS of NTJ's, but you'd need some sort of technical background first I'm sure. IF you can deal with the monotony/boredom, I'm sure NJ's would make good equipment operators...

    I'd kill myself rather than get into research. Years of sitting and discussing about minute details of a really specific subject...oh my god. Shoot me now.

    I think writing is the perfect career for NJs.

    N: used for the imaginative concepts/storyline (non-fiction/fiction).
    J: The dedication to actually finish it and edit it over and over again.

    When I was a kid my worst fear was becoming a teacher or professor of some sort, now as I grow older, I'm almost sure that's what I'll become eventually.

    Hey best of luck to you all. I'm trying to explore new career oppurtunities as well; and things have been rather slow on that front.

    careers that involve the skill of taking in loads of qualitative and quantitative data....and then POOF!(Ni) having some general principles worked out that help you address issues, projects etc related to the data set...

    its just a guess...as i still have no career haha

    But try action research or qualitative research--trying to document whether what you're doing is making a difference. I've had a blast, especially adding student voice to studies.

    I know a lot of NTJ consulting actuaries that enjoy the work. It pays really well too.
