    Default Dream Job for ENFP

    For the skimmers, this is my question:
    To ENFPs, (or anyone who knows closely ENFPs) Would you rather pursue (or did you pursue) a fun career, intellectually stimulating career, or what else?

    This ENFP gal
    • Is extremely talented at making other ppl laugh, hilarious, successful at standup comedy
    • Everyone is happy within 5 ft of her regardless of their previous mood
    • loves to have fun
    • constantly emits a glow in social situations


    Is she considering careers that would limit her talents and not allow her happiness? Or just blown away by life's possibilities?

    In her words:
    "so, you should pick a career for me
    here are my options
    regardless of major/degree i would like to help people, know things that will help in every aspect of my life. so i could be a religionist
    major in religion and history and things
    or phd shrink
    or phdmd super shrink
    or a pa
    or a public speaker
    or a writer
    or someone that comes up with big ideas...
    i like to (and am good at)think, fix problems, make connections, organize, explain things, create
    thats why im good at teaching, jokes, writing lesson plans, art, papers,
    making and achieving goals, pretty much all of those actions so if im a phd or phd md id be better in a lab, probably
    so find me a job, woman, you are officially in charge of taking care of the rest of my life, so find out what would be most helpful in the grand scheme of things
    I COULD BE AN OVERLORD!!!!!!!!!
    "


    Isn't she hilarious ???
    WHY would anyone this hilarious want to go to college for 12 years?
    Does anyone know of a job order that reads, "...someone that comes up with big ideas"
    ... JK.

    I bolded the portion that I have seen evidence of her talents in.

    Teacher/Stand-up comedian/inventor

    I really think education would be a good place for her. she could keep the lessons fun and interesting while being much more able to help each child. I think she would thrive as a Charter School teacher, the small classes and being able to watch each child develop over the years would be excellent, I think.


    I think being a Special Education teacher could be good because she has to be more novel with teaching than with the average child. Another could be a student counselor, she could come up with good ideas, let the child pick, and be the nice lady that the child would listen to.

    Anyways that's my spiel, I think NFs of all kinds are great teachers, it's really a matter of what type of teacher, I think.

    Maybe, but not this one. She was the only female member of a comedy club and always got the best reviews and laughs.

    i would very much like to be a hired idea person.
    you know...a company calls me and says we need an idea on how to do this...or how do we do that...or could you invent something that would bring us this or do that...or how do we market this...or coming up with business ideas or designs for businesses...or throwing promotional parties for businesses...or....etc...etc...i'm good at ideas and design...SUCK at follow through!

    but...also very torn about doing something to help people...taking broken people and giving them the tools to start a new life and fulfill their potential somehow...

    OR! traveling around photographing life...just captured moments of people in situations...journalistic style i think...and putting together a book or exhibit

    OR...a business owner...

    OR! haha...sorry...i could do that all day.

    Comedian, just drag your INTP friend up onto the stage and talk. Give a mild sexual innuendo, and you have high end lols.

    I guess that is kind of related...but Why would that yield lols?? Wouldn't that embarrass an INTP?

    INTP's can be fairly shameless. To get this to work properly, give them a small amount of booze, or promise payment in another means.

    I bolded the portion that I have seen evidence of her talents in.
    those are dream iobs for every ENFP, almost.
    i'd add journalism, business, science, art, organizing events... I plan to achieve most of that. at least in some form.

    if she's a good writer and other stuff you bolded than i guess writer/ journalist is best for her. or public speaker or PR, but you didn't bold that as her talent.
