    INTPs don't care about world domination.

    Isn't mental masturbation a job yet?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Really? I thought world domination was an NTJ thing.

    At least, I don't get it. I would certainly like one of my creations or discoveries to have important on a world stage. But domination?

    Also, the original source of this list, I believe, is an old version of "Do What You Are". I am not a big fan of that series. It turns Myers-Briggs into a stereotyping mechanism, and then uses the stereotypes to give career advise.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Well, I'm a translator and interpreter. Other INTPs I know in real life are: mathematician, science journalist, teacher

    There are definitely jobs more fit than others, but I don't think it's always as clear cut as that. Two very different people might enjoy the same work for different reasons or appreciate different aspects of it.

    If it is domination of people like an emperor, that would be NTJ, but if it is domination of natural forces like an engineer, that would be NTP. Both types are interested in control, but the type of control differs.

    I work in a restaurant, model for artists, write, and aspire to perform on silks.

    I remember when I dreamed of being an interpreter/translator. So cool.

    Consider me a number seven. Hell yeah.

    I (day)dream about having a hand in the development of computer translation software that does a decent job. Decent AI-type algorithms that 'sit on top' of the SJ-type grunt processing. There's an analogy with voice recognition software: its context-sensitivity is still poor. So often, instructing 'correct that' throws up the actual dictated phrase at the top of the list of alternatives, in circumstances where quite rudimentary context-sensitivity (at the paragraph level or the page level rather than at the sentence level) would have put it on the page instead of on the list of alternatives.

    Last year an important media source published an article about a supposed breakthrough in CAT (computer aided translation) due to some new brute force approach that searched an enormous text corpus for parallels. So I went and asked a friend who is a computer linguist (and by now working on her PhD thesis in the field of CAT) if my job was still safe. She grinned and said not to worry, they weren't even anywhere near developing a decent translation software.

    My instinct is that 'they' ARE near, but that they simply don't recognise the route they have to take to get there.

    Contrast CAT with computer chess: for the latter, brute-force searching of an enormous (grandmaster) games-history corpus for parallels could only get the computer *near to* the best human efforts, not *ahead* of them. But for CAT, the nearer to best human efforts, the better! - there is no 'ahead'. So database searching *and context sensitivity* is surely the way forward with CAT.
