Hi, thanks to anyone who shows interest. Everyone has seen the, how are you not like your type threads, but with more of a focus I am wondering how many have a career that they are flourishing in, that goes against your type(any INFP plumbers out there?) or do you have any talents that go against your type description?

How are you not like your type, in career choice and talents?“A spoonful of honey attracts more flies than a barrelful of vinegar.” -St. Francis de Sales
"Let your beauty be not just the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on fine clothing; but in the hidden person of the heart, in the incorruptible adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God very precious." -St. Peter

Well, I am an ENFJ, and I am months away from getting a PhD in organic chemistry. That doesn't really match with the stereotypes of my type. I've always been very talented at science, and am quite good at the scientific process in general.

I work in a tech corporation and am working to become a data analysis person, including using code to mine databases. No elaboration needed. If an SFP description ever discouraged someone from trying this kind of work, that would be a shame.
The thing I am best at may be writing, which is also outside of stereotype because SPs are more often associated with visual arts and with struggling with words.

I am an ENFJ who is in charge of A LOT of detail and I am ba. I create business strategies, efficiencies, and overall structure. Also, I am a technical writer.
My talent is long-term strategy... sometimes Fe can be extra effective because it factors in people so as not to create foreseeable rifts in the company or just to lessen the effects of inevitable situations.

I'm an ENTJ who hates the business world. Every time I hear some douche bags talk about marketing or the bottom line or whatever soul crushing garbage they are going on about I want to dump scalding hot coffee on them.
I'm ambitious, success is important to me but not in the vile cesspool that is business/marketing ect.

ENFP behaviourist - reading body language can be important for doing my job well, which is why most 'in the field' 'animal whisperers' tend to be SFPs. They're the best at actually interacting with the animal - such as Jackson Galaxy. Other types of behaviourists tend to be focused on solving the problem (FJ's) or doing the research (Ns).
While my focus is mostly on the bridge formation between pet owner and animal, reading body language to see where the animal (and owner!)is coming from is kinda vital. Otoh, regarding writing articles on the subject, and raising awareness, I'm fully in the ENFP zone.
Working hard on 'mimicking' especially the ISFP style, atm, for this reason.★ڿڰۣ✿ℒoѵℯ✿ڿڰۣ★

I am in politics; I doubt that entps are generally bad at that but I think the last person you want to have there is an entp .
Besides that I am pretty entp'ish I think, a hybrid in all things.
I dont discuss as much as american entps, at least I feel no need to. I have more answers to life than questions, answers working for me that maybe comes with age.

I'm entering into a driven, professional industry that goes against my creativity yet supports it at the same time.
My types indicate I am a creative but they don't indicate that I am a overdriven individual who logically works things out as much as emotionally! I want to get rich !!!

I say this as a reminder to myself, but this goes for everyone:
You can achieve anything you set your mind to, and you are limited only by how dedicated you are to succeed!
