    Exclamation What would you like to be paid to do?

    We have all read lists that ascribe personality type to job titles, and we have likewise read similar lists linking type to job choices past and present.

    Inquiring minds wants to know what job you would like to be paid to do. It sounds simple enough, but I realize that not everything a person would want to do is readily viable. So lets dream a little. I invite you to state what you want and any conditions that need to be in place as precursors to having said dream be reality.

    2. present job
    3. dream job
    4. conditions

    1. ENFJ 1w2 (136) sp/so

    2. Graduate student (organic chemistry, PhD)

    3. Don't have one, actually. I do however, have types of attributes I'd like to see in a job that are "dream job apsects". This gives me breathing room and thus doesn't pigeon hole me into one path. I'll explain them in conditions.

    4. Management position. Something that will allow me to direct people, "crowd herd", deal with logistics of people, projects, resources (sans money/financial things), and time tables. Something that involves face to face interaction, and frequent meetings with others. Because of my career path, I suspect this will involve organic chemistry in some manner. While I love science, as I get older I am finding that this is, in a way incidential. Essentially, because I have a lot of expertience with science, people, management/leadership, I want to blend them together. As I see it, I don't think there are explicit positions for this, but I will find something that fits closest to these.

    okay me second (me and my editing skills took to long to be first)

    Dream A

    1. mbti type - intj
    2. present job - tech support for field techs
    3. dream job - professional university/undergrad student
    I would like to be paid to study and research my way around the worlds institutions of learning.
    4. conditions - I would need my tuition and books and living expences covered; the aquiring of a degree or completion of a project would act either as a bonus, or as currency to be saved up towards something nice. And I would need control over what and where I study.


    Dream B is more interesting, at least from the standpoint of why this thread has been created. I'll skip steps one and two.

    3. entepreneur of sorts.

    That doesn't say much. How about leaving the title alone and telling some history which may get to the point a bit easier.

    story:
    I live in a border city where unemployment is high on both sides. People want to work, but are either disenfranchiezed, disilusioned and or can't find what they determine to be meaningful employment. I want to be an undercover employment goddess.

    There are two aspects to this. The first is to be in charge of the multinational outsourcing company in town. I would want control over choosing the clients and accounts we take on, and advocate for conditions that leave the client and the employees mutually benifited, satisfied and motivated to keep the relationship healthy.
    The second side of that would be the undercover aspect - To gather information and select people to give a leg up to; to devise a means of doing so which protects the secrecy of how to qualify for said plan, and does not leave me or my associates overwhelmed by the number of scamming no gooders. This initiative would strive to discover what motivates said qualifiees and provide them with the means to find meaning.

    4. conditions
    besides the obvious ones, which are time, and and a hell of a lot of capital, I would also need a strong team to keep me motivated to continue and take care of the logistical nitemare that doing the second part at least, would require. I would also need information on people trends - what they like, what they want to be paid for, why they want money.


    As an asside, I dont wonder if I'm entirely too prince-ish...as in machiavelian or european auristocracy at the turn of last century. I believe I would prefer to be the benevolent version. The nasty ones leave alot more shit to clean up. Can't say as I like the stink or the mess or the cleaning. Nessesary and natural as shitting may be.

    mbti type- INTJ
    present job - I'm a certified coding specialist. I have a AAS in Health Information Technology and a BS in Health Information Management. I work from home, make good money, excellent benefits and retirement and I don't even work 30 hrs a week.
    dream job - MLB bullpen coach. Why? Have you ever seen what they do? They corral the pitchers, bring out the trash can full of balls and answer the phone when the dugout calls for a relief pitcher. However, you apparently need professional baseball coaching experience so it will have to remain a dream. A more realistic dream would be to go back to school into an entirely different field that interests me. I'd get multiple degrees in otherwise useless majors I could never actually make money in simply because I want to.
    conditions - I'd be paid to do all this ^^
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Really? I thought all they did was sit in a chair and scratch their balls...

    I can't imagine having a more fun or fulfilling job than what I've got right now.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Current Job: Student
    Dream Job: Consultant at anything that gets to travel the world and help people from all over.
    Conditions: Get to work on projects for about 6 months in various cities + countries, in terms of the actual duty I guess something involving researching and advising would be cool. As long as I have enough money for comfortable living I'm good.
