    World domination should be at the top of the list, or should I say Ultimate Universal Domination!

    Intrigued to see lawyer at 7. A lot of the stuff I found while googling around my (past) prospective career+MBTI was "INTPs will hate being lawyers it is an SJ field don't do it".

    I'm not sure if and how librarian are library attendant are different. Maybe they call it differently in Britian? I didn't expect my career to be that rare among INTPs.

    From what I understand, a librarian (at least in the US) takes on more admin stuff (but maybe even a lot of that is still determined by whatever systems the city has chosen).

    Where I work, the library branch managers end up doing alot of the admin stuff and the paperwork. The library assistants do alot of the clerical type stuff. They are the ones who register library cards, collect fines and shelve materials. The librarians typically handle the reference questions, evaluate the materials, plan the programs. There is some crossover and librarians do have to do some paperwork and we also sometimes help the library assistants when busy.

    Well, architect (No. 3 on the list of INTP occupations) can be either NT or SJ. Designing the Sydney Opera House, that 'great architectural work of the 20th century that brings together multiple strands of creativity and innovation' ( http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/166 ) is very much NT, whereas designing boxy low-budget apartment blocks is SJ.

    In like vein, law is SJ if it's 'routine law' - the sort of work done by what we in the UK call 'high street solicitors' - bread and butter stuff like drafting wills and transferring title to residential property. Law can be much more NT-flavoured if it's big-corporation advisory work or court work in complex cases.

    That was always my instinct re: law, yeah. Hard to find much advice on this specific slant that take account of the structure of the profession in the UK though.
