    I'd say ENTP's are some of the best at making money... but also some of the worst at actually directly caring about money itself all that much.

    I can make money quite well... sure I can't hold onto it worth crap, but I can MAKE it.

    But... I don't really care about money. It's a means to an ends, nothing more. It's latent fun, latent tastyness, latent shelter, latent 'stuff'. Until yeu USE it, it has no purpose. And if yeu blow yeur entire life MAKING monies so much so that yeu can't spend it... how many people get paid really well but have like 80-100 hour a week jobs to do it? Really is that WORTH it? Some may say yes, but they also tend to be the ones who don't care about monies in that sense anymore, it just is a quantifiable value of 'power' at that point.

    I have no need for power, it doesn't really interest me. I just want to enjoy myself. So really, I think I defeat the purpose of it.

    For which ones *DO* get monies easily, I'd think it'd be more the J's. P's are less likely to be able to be 'neat and tidy professional and organized' that earns brownie points at the top. P's are also more likely to just not care about monies so much, or at least that's my interpretation/understanding, I dunno though, I just think J's are more likely to actively strive to get "money" as a goal.

    My father is like that unfortunately... slave to the almighty dollar. MUST HAVE MORE. Doesn't matter if he has lots, doesn't matter if he had a million more than he has now, it'd never be enough. It doesn't matter if he has to work twice as much as anyone else, as long as he had MORE monies it's good. Except the thirst for it is never sated, and it's never good enough, always leaving him wanting more.

    It's a sad life to watch someone live that way, so single minded in their goal, without much reason for why it's even a goal in the first place.

    Yay yeu have monies, yeu win at life?

    I dunno, just doesn't seem right to me.

    In the end, I think that the ones who *CAN* make monies are not always going to be the ones who *DO* make monies. But perhaps that's not related to type either.

    FROM: MBTI Demographics - all types - INTJ Forum

    House hold income is everyone in the house not just one type... so these figures are deceptive at answering the question...

    Actually there is a big difference between personal income and personal wealth.... Income is your salary per year, wealth is how much money you have.

    ENTP's are suppose to be shit hot at making it and really shit at managaing it...

    Between my law degree and my Roth IRA I think I'll do just fine.

    I agree it has to be xNtj. S's don't see the big picture enough to make huge profits. We may be good at specific areas, but it's more difficult for us to get the big picture.

    What I sort of don't get is: why E and not I?

    I think extraverts have more motivation towards having more money, since they care more about "external" reality. Moreover, they (we) often have higher energy levels.

    ESTPs.

    But Legally, I'd say ESTJs.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Simple. Extroverts usually are people-persons (at least more so than introverts), generally work places prefer more extroverted workers. In fact, the top of the list being ExTJ does not surprise me in the least.

    the entj I knew would always buy the cheapest nastiest food so he can save more money. I'd rather have my health than have more pieces of paper.

    Those pieces of paper will come in handy when you're too old to work and eating cat food because you failed to save while you could still earn.
