    Have you figured out an ideal job thing for you?

    Let's see...things I like:

    Talking to people
    Arguing
    Thinking
    Talking about ideas
    Making up stories
    Entertaining
    Making money
    Teaching people
    Being right
    Playing music
    Acting
    Writing
    Creating things (paintings, drawings, jewelry, etc)
    Leading
    Science things
    Exploring things
    Figuring things out
    INVENTING THINGS
    And more

    I will definitely be doing both of those things. Thanks!

    My Personal Assessment Of My Personal Self

    I had people say what I was good/bad at, and the first thing everyone said was:

    Talking
    Arguing
    Speaking

    I was also told that I

    Am good at rearranging problems
    Am good at science/reading/writing
    Am good at hussling
    Am good at creating
    Am good at music
    Am good with people

    Mainly I am good at a lot, but am bad at:

    Taking in people's feelings
    Not arguing
    Being quiet
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Salt Foot Massage and a Picnic

    Salt foot massage is very nice. All we need is a large bowl of warm water, common salt and oil.

    First we massage the foot with oil, then we massage the foot with salt, then we dissolve the salt in the warm water. And before long we are walking on air.

    Salt foot massage is extra nice before a picnic with only one rule - you can't feed yourself, you are only allowed to feed the person next to you.

    So first we walk on air, then we care for one another by nourishing each other with a delicious picnic.

    (assuming you're still into the idea, lol) You could do it for free, and set up a tipping system, and advertise. That way, you'll build reputation, experience and a nice little bit of money hopefully. All you'd have to do is set up a time and a place every week. The best way to start is with a free service, think google.

    ENXPs are well suited to being entrepreneurs.

    However, most successful businesses get started by the visionary and then led and managed by the CEO. ESTJ/INTJ/ENTJ/ISTJ etc.

    ENXP are more the catalysts.

    If you look at the history of many (most?) entrepreneurial small-businesses that became successful chains the visionaries start the company, expand it some until it get's to be too much or else draws attention from interested buyers. Then the visionaries sell the company and/or put someone else in charge and collect checks. Cold Stone Creamery is an example.

    That really sounds more in line with a short-attention span ENXP. However, I can see those with a lot of Te or just plain hustle LOVIN' their business and holding on to it.

    I tend to disagree on this rather fatalistic point of view.

    Even as an ENXP, if you grow older and have to feed a family and care for yourself, you will by all means have no short attention span to operate a business you are building or built yourself.

    It's this classic example that responsibility grows from becoming more responsible. I wouldnt want to think that because some online test says I am a catalyst, I wont be able to run my business without the help of a J like mentioned in the test.

    I myself work at the moment in the administration for my city and many tasks are really boring but the money you get makes up for that. And since they made me manager for our regional production cluster network, I have to organize a lot but meet new people and insinghts into the business world on a daily basis.

    I perfectly feel not made for the job, but its a challenge and thats how you should think as an entp: a challenge is a challenge and if mastered will make you more responsible automatically.

    According to the Holland Codes you sound like you are some combination of Investigative, Artistic and Enterprising. The question is which of those three areas is most attractive to you? Once you figure that out then you'll know the type of work that you'd enjoy best.
    Holland Codes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Generally you want to figure your primary code out first, and then use your next two codes to support it. For example a person who is Investigate and then Artistic might be an Inventor. And a person who is Investigative and then Enterprising would enjoy managing a group of IT specialists or starting an IT consulting firm. There are actually a variety of careers for each combination, but knowing what your preferences are will point you in the right direction.

    Hey, ENXPs can be quite good with business, I believe, and not just setting them up. I think for some, it is a motivation thing. It kind of is for me. My problem is I have too many options.

    Wow, that sounds exactly like me! The other two, not so much. I don't know what I am more, though! I am very much on the artistic side, very much on the investigative side and very much on the enterprising side!

    AGH! Why can't I just be cut out for secretary?!
