    I'd like to make a business but I always feel like none of my ideas are unique enough.

    They don't have to be unique, just better than the rest.

    Doesn't matter if you think they are better or not. What matters is that your customer thinks you are better than the rest. The strategy to achieve that depends on your (damnit, whats doelgroep in english) ehm, target customer audience.

    General population at this time think cheaper is better, so how can you appear cheaper, without losing your margins. If your target audience is the richer kind that doesn't mind spending, then better service is better. So how can you let the target customer know you offer the best all round services?

    And so on and so forth.

    It doesn't even matter if competition have better potential or more to spend than you. You just have to sell yourself to the customers, the rest is meaningless.

    There is a lot of truth in these words.

    There are a ton of intuitives in business in all kinds of postions - including accounting, actuarial, finance, marketing, portfolio management, etc.

    This is a very relevant article about the prevalence of various MBTI types within the accounting and actuarial fields.

    In a study of accountants, Schloemer and Schloemer (1997) found that the proportion reporting a preference for Sensing was 67% overall, but only 39% among accounting firm partners / principals, suggesting that “individuals with a preference for activities requiring a broad perspective and abstract reasoning have an advantage at higher levels in public accounting."

    Actuarial Science and Accounting are completely different and uncomparable fields (I have some experience in both, I'm studying Actuarial Science now) - so those results totally make sense.

    I am also studying to become an actuary, and both my parents are accountants (for whom I have worked in youth).
