    There's always a flip side. I've got one BA in English and parlayed it into a technical writing career that has finally landed me in a nice secure position with a pharmaceutical company doing work that I coridially loathe.

    Sometimes following your intellectual passions really doesn't pay off, as you say.

    getting distracted is easy when you are like that, always searching for something new.

    ExTP seems more like ENTP in your case.
    I thought that was Ti...but yeah, I've been thinking I'm ENTP lately...I do have a lot of Se moments though.

    You're probably right too. Everything must make sense sounds like Ti, but 'On a greater level' could be Ne at work as well.

    study the most practical thing you can find that won't bore you to tears and take the classes that really interest you for your electives... or if you're super lucky, you'll find something practical that you're passionate about
    which degrees? what sort of jobs do you enjoy?
