    Default Thanks for all the recs, folks

    The info has been most helpful. I have added both 'something to do with boating' and pilot to my list, among others. I've never seriously considered pilot because I always heard it was expensive to get started. Having looked into it a bit now, it is indeed, but doable. The starting pay looks low, and salary seems to range quite a bit. Who gets paid the 6 figures? I'm guessing old commercial pilots w/ tons of seniority? Also, I have NEVER encountered a woman pilot.....wonder why?

    Embry-Riddle in Daytona is a good school for individuals who choose not to take the Air Force route. Most of the top paid pilots are for commercial airliners and in most cases they are retired from the Air Force.

    Lots of pilots have been laid off since 2001, which I don't think should discourage someone from pursuing something that appeals to them. Even if it took a while to find a good gig, at least a person could still do it on a personal basis.

    The guy that founded McAffe, is now a pilot for tourist in Beleze. sp?

    Thought to myself, ok he got 200 Million for the company he founded in the late eighties. Then the man lost all of his money in the real estate bust. Now he's in his sixties and taking people down rivers in boats, and flying pontoon planes.

    Which life of those three would appeal to me. I think the one he has now, and the man appears to be energetic and happy vs. others globally who had millions or billions they lost and committed suicide.

    *stereotypical list* of ISTP professions. In reality though "military" is far to broad a term but if we're generalizing the whole damn thing I'll say this military, police, firefighter would all make terrible jobs for an ISTP. We would only enjoy these during the movie-esk moments (i.e. in a fire fight, high-speed chase, or rescue). But these moments are fewer and further between than they are in the movies or tv. Like most cops say, they never even pull out their gun. Or from my own personal experience, I've been in the military for 6 years between school and work and only fired 90 rounds from a military M-4 or M-16.

    Before paying for pilot schooling just find someone to give you a free ride. If you aren't captivated by the fact that you're flying when you're on a commercial airliner you will probably find flying the plane to be equally boring. Like driving a car but it can go up and down now too. That was my experience, so I wouldn't want someone else to spend tons of money just to find out they don't like it especially when there is plenty of opportunity to find out much more cost-effectively
