    Lawyers -- ESTP
    Comedians -- ENTP
    Teachers -- ESFJ
    Musicians -- ISTP
    Visual Artists -- ISFP
    Research scientists -- INTP
    Engineers -- ISTJ
    Athletes -- ISTP
    Actors -- ESFP
    Pilots -- ISFP
    Social workers -- ENFJ
    Professors -- ENTP

    As per the question, none is exclusive. Almost all of these are directly based on personally known examples (the pilot may be more subjective, as an ISFP is the coolest, calmest, steadiest flier I know).

    -Teachers Any NF, but probably ENFJ if I had to pick one type

    -Visual artists Any type, but SP's have an advantage
    -Research scientists INTJ
    -Engineers Any T with sufficient IQ
    -Athletes Any SP (depends on the sport beyond that)
    -Actors Any type, but P's have a bit of an advantage
    -Pilots ISP
    -Social workers Any NF

    My opinion of the best type, and type group (disclaimer: obviously this is grossly stereotyping, by its nature):

    -Lawyers - ENTJ (XXTJ....maybe ExTP)
    -Comedians - ESTP (EXXP)
    -Teachers - ENFJ (EXFX)
    -Musicians - ISFP (SP or NF)
    -Visual artists - ISFP (SP, NF)
    -Research scientists - INTP for the actual research, maybe ENTP or INTJ to actually make money at it (IxTx)
    -Engineers - ISTP (NT, ST)
    -Athletes - ISTP (SP, maybe NT, depending on the sport)
    -Actors - ESTP (SP, NF, though not exclusively)
    -Pilots - ISTP (SP, NT, SJ, any type that does well under pressure)
    -Social workers - ENFJ (NF, SF, SJ)
    -Professors - ENTP (I like NT and STP ones the best)

    Some more classic (aka unoriginal) jobs:

    -vet - ENFJ (NF, but any type would work really)
    -doctor - ISTJ to get through med school, ENFJ for the "classical doctor", ISTP or INTJ would be my own preference (ESxJ overall?)
    -accountant - ISTJ (ST)
    -paramedic - ISTP (ST or SPs who can handle pressure)
    -CEO - ESTJ (ExTJ)
    -nurse - ESFJ (SJ, NF)
    -firefighter - ESTP (SP)
    -police - ESTJ (xxTJ)

    Why do SP's have an advantage in music? I only ask that because I know that NFs (I think maybe INF particularly, but I'm not sure why) can be very good, too, and I'm wondering why an ESTP or ESFP or ISTP would be particularly good, as it doesn't seem liek soemthing that otherwise fits from what I know.

    Because they reside in the moment like no others can.

    What types are naturally good at what things?
    No type - type doesn't convey much ability, but may indicate if the person will be willing to spend the time to work on something (passion is more important and ability, most of the time).
