She's too simplistic for me. That's often my complaint with Te-doms. Their "advice" is to state the obvious.
It seems to me this guy's issue is fear. He needs to get past emotional obstacles, but she was focusing on "factual" stuff. Notice how he keeps saying "anyway..." in response to her questions. He has answers, ideas, clear goals, but he simply is freezing up in response to her approach.
I don't find her offensive, just dense.

She is completely obnoxious. People listen to this person?
But she does say some intelligent things.And some stupid things. last time I checked, mbti is not a score and doesn't tell you your strengths.
A lot of the most "successful" bloggers only make money by blogging about how they make money from blogging. Same somewhat goes for Tim ferris. So people do listen to her... But it's basically a bunch of bloggers trying to play king of the hill (id think the amount of blogging money out there is somewhat zero sum).
I also fully agree that her interpretation of MBTI was flawed... But it just seemed like such a good ETJ vs IF convo...
My first post in years... I log back in to my account and stumble on this gem of a quote from this thread.
"you should look at people's lives, and find someone's life that you like, and then think about how they make money, and how you could make money like they do to have their life."
I've had soooo many careers, that I wish I had really understood that quote when I was much younger. I am finally happy with my day to day life as a software engineer, but I've had a lot of jobs (or aspired to certain jobs), that I would never had done had I really thought about the day to day.
careers / job / majors / etc that I would have avoided pursuing:
- medical doctor --> sounds like: 'house' --> actual: insurance forms
- management consulting --> sounds like: glorious travel and solving problems --> actual: living in airports
- investment banking --> sounds like: make tons of money --> actual: overnight spread sheet updater
- commodities trader --> sounds like: solve puzzles --> actual: extremely stressful and lonely
- financial analyst --> sounds like: make good insights --> actual: networking networking networking
- high school teacher --> sounds like: summers off, less stress, causal --> actual: surrogate parent responsibility but none of the authority.
- tennis pro
Had I just taken a moment to think "okay, that job sounds like ____, but the actual day to day will be more like _____; do I want to do that?". I would have been much much happier earlier in life haha.
Here's the podcast. It's Penelope trunk (somewhat of a "famous" online persona) and she's being interviewed by a want-a-be online persona (ie make money online). She's an admitted ENTJ and he's also an admitted ISFJ (who stupidly thinks he wants an ENTP entrepreneur lifestyle)
define entp entrepreneur lifestyle? As opposed to say, entj entrepreneur lifestyle?
The comments are just as funny. Some people thought the ENTJ was "yelling" haha. Butt hurt SJs. Then there's the more lucid people who saw the ISFJ as delusional.
While personality certainly influences the way people communicate I don't think there was anything 'wrong' with the guy. He seemed a bit naive but perhaps he was just looking for a way out of the monotony of his employed lifestyle.
