    Anyhow, I'm not entirely happy doing this. I like the design aspect of it, but I'm not Extraverted enough for it to be a perfect fit. So if I could just be given a design to come up with, and be left alone in my office to put it all together, I'd be happy. So I'm not sure where I'm headed with all of this. Recently I helped a friend renovate a Victorian home and bring it back to it's 'roots' and I really enjoyed that so perhaps that's something to consider?
    I'd definitely have put it under artist, since I was intending that to mean pretty much anything involving artistic/creative talent.

    The actual design part of it seems like a fun job for an ISFP. I really like decorating too, although my tastes are too simple for me to make a career of it.

    I was a food-taster for a despotic African ruler until recently...

    That was until he passed away the other week. Suspected food poisoning, apparently.

    The blighters made me redundant - and now looking for similar employment! Plenty of experience under the old belt.

    Any Good Samaritans out there *willing to take a chance*?

    Tried Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) for work? Machette skills are commanding a premium at the moment. Although if you just want to sit back, relax and watch... try joining the UN army.

    Any armed force that wears a bright blue hat has got serious, serious problems.

    I mean, that's like becoming a professional mugger dressed in a clown's outfit and wondering why you always get picked out at the id parade.

    Back on track, I'd just love to get nice and close to Mugabe.

    You're not North American, are you? You probably have some gorgeous bikes. What do you ride?

    I'm fairly new to the sport; my road bike is a Trek 1500 and I'm thinking about getting a flip-flop single speed to use as a commuter. Although with these potholes in Canada some people recommend commuting with a suspension fork.

    I'm only 16 but I've stricken up interest in theoretical physics, sooo "Scientific Research" it is.

    I'm a student, but I'm working as a Intern doing a combination of electrical engineering and IT work. In addition, I do some mechanical work on the side.

    I had aspirations of being a filmmaker. I've always loved films and it was pretty much the only thing that interested me. At the same time, though, I had anxiety of even making a film, although I had considerably fewer problems with screenwriting. Still, I never had the follow-through to complete the screenplays into anything more than shorts. And I am bored by the process of developing characters; I prefer to write the action sequences and I guess I was a bit adept at giving detailed descriptions of images in my mind.

    For that reason, I was also interested in creative writing, but unfortunately, I had to do a lot of reading -- I am impatient with reading anything that isn't written by me, about me, interesting to me, or useful to me. I never liked reading fiction but I liked writing stories.

    I also had an interest in art and design (if it revolved around the stories or movie scenes I created in my head), and my art teacher told me how creative I was in his classes, but I always figure that he's just telling me what I like to hear to make me feel good. I don't fall for that. And art is also not a very good field to get into for career purposes.

    Naturally, others told me how unrealistic my goals were so it kind of hurt my enthusiasm.
