    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    hmm maybe! its not going to be something mundane and routine Ill tell you that. No matter how much I want to live a comfortable lifestyle, being uncomfortable and uncertain is the way for me as an estp. entrepreneur baby!

    i think that uncomfortable and uncertain preference is probably true for most Pe doms. how else are we supposed to flow? structure and routine just kill it dead.

    hmm. why, though? i feel sorry for most people who have normal business hours jobs. maybe i'm having an especially pessimistic moment but i feel like a huge chunk of people go to a desk job where they either do absolutely nothing or do absolutely meaningless drudgery all day and then get home after dark when it's already too late to spend some QT with their kids - or their kids are consumed in busy work for school anyway. all for what at the end of your life? a stack of well-organized 1040As and distant connections with other humans if any real connection at all? it's so much better to be mindful that you're living a fulfilling life imo.

    Great advice.

    And as an entp, you do have to make a concerted effort to focus, lol.

    I get the idea that there are a lot of xntps just floating around talking about how they have all this intellect, but just can't decide what they want to do.

    Don't make the same mistake. Pick one thing and put every last spec of your energy into it. As an entp, other small things will fall in your lap w/out you even looking for them.

    Also,

    I've noticed (and read on other mbti posts related to investing) that Te users usually use technical analysis.
    An xNTP I knew invented totally differently. But he was really good at it. He told me that he liked to learn everything about an industry and everything about a company. Basically he tried to understand exactly what he was investing in before going for it, opposed to basing his moves on market trends...

    I say all that to say, go buy a Warren Buffet book.
