anyways, in highschool my ENTP friend and I created these stock piles of amazing ideas in notepad files etc... Im not nearly as good at being creative without being able to bounce ideas of someone like him. Thus, I write a lot less now then before
I do write some stuff now...the problem is the nuts n bolts. I get really excited about the beginning scenes, the really funny climax scenes..... and then i get as far as an outline for the rest, ust dry of ideas.
this is why my best "bit" that i could ever do on the spot for just about anything was parody movie trailors...they require entire movie ideas, yet you dont have to write the middle 3rd .
as you say, I always look at jobs and on the surface see how i could excel, only to look at the grind and see that I would always be lacking in some way.I used to think I could do anything, but as time goes by, I'm realizing I don't actually excel at anything, and am too much of a philosopher/bullshitter and not enough of a go-getter... :S
1. I too feel like im too much a bullshitter philosopher in my spare time.
2. This leads to nothing ever really getting done! I desperately want a job that actaully creates something! I want to be able to hear it, see it, eat it, play it, drive it, talk to it, present it, carry it, etc ... I dont want to just be some guy who does paper work or makes money through organized gambling (most of the business world of speculating)
3. Combining number 1 and 2, I often feel like everything of value has already been created so its pointless. That great philosophy paper i write in my spare time on something I THINK is radical? then i go look it up and find that someone else already wrote about it...usaully more concise and better than me too..
3.a So this simply extends to every other "great idea" i ever have about songs, movies, products etc...
I think ENFPs were born to be court jesters or salon philosophers... not sure what else we actaully have a comparative advantage for. This is ultimatly the problem:
example: ENTJ can be just as creative as ENFP, yet the ENTJ has the comparative advantage in getting shit done.
How does this leave the ENFP in a world where everyone has to specializer and be some sort of comparative advantage????
