    Funny but I am very very bad at pratical things like welding or anything like this.

    I'm three out of six years into an architecture degree.

    I came across some website also asking what careers ENFPs should or shouldn't do, and the first reply was 'don't be an architect!!'. So lol, I don't know.

    It's detail-oriented (blech), but is creative and interesting in an applied way - it's like art that someone will actually pay you for. :P And since each project is totally different and there's a bit of travel involved? Sounds okay to me.

    (Mind, I haven't actually worked in the field yet. This could be a deciding factor.)

    My boyfriend is an ENFP.

    He's in school, as we speak, to be a literature teacher.

    Mmhmm.

    Default Usborne Books salesperson and calligrapher

    I have sold these children's books for the past 14 years and had my own calligraphy business for the past 27 years!! I have also made homemade french chocolates in the past as a home-based business.

    Clearly, ENFP's like jobs with a flexible and varied environment. I set my own hours and always have changing work. I love it!

    anyone know any ENFP writers? be it novels, childrens, fantasy, TV, commercial, screen play?

    im curious how good of a career that would be for an ENFP:

    1. would it be too lonely of a job? writing is often associated with introverts. would the fact that writers get to write ABOUT people, impersonate peoples dialogue/actions and the general study of people be enough to engage the ENFP?

    2. similar to number 1, Ne can often be just as fascinated by ideas as well as people...i wonder if the idea of every story being different, (also with there being different genres) would be enough to keep the ENFP from getting bored?

    im asking the above with the assumption that ENFP already knows that he likes to write in various story forms.

    I like writing, (and I LOVE planning/brainstorming stories) but I very quickly bore of writing out the mundane little details that are nessecary for a story of any length. So, not for me, but I suppose it might suit some.

    I feel like being a writer requires people to finish projects, which has never been one of our strong suits. I think INFJ is the perfect type for a novelist. I have heard, however, that ENFP's write good scripts and have a natural ear for dialogue. If you're worried about the loneliness, writing for television might be the best bet since TV shows have writing staffs that gather to storyboard together.
