    Default ENTPs and employment skills!

    Hello!!!

    I need your help as on thursday i've got an job interview for my first job. Its with BVT which are basically the only UK manufacturer of aircraft carriers and a lot of other naval boats. Its called cost engineering which i figured from the description is like finance and accounting and marketing all mixed in one strange bundle.

    The reason i need help is because it being my first job they can't exactly talk about past job experience so i'm guessing they will talk a lot about personal strengths and weaknesses as well as hypothetical situations. So i figured that i could use typology to help me think of all my strengths and weaknesses and how i'd react in hypothetical situations.

    So i wanted ask what are the strengths and weaknesses of an ENTP (or INTP) employment wise?
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    dont listen to him, this will never work at all.

    why are u going to work in finance for gods sake that sounds agonizing.

    Talk about how much u love to do the same stuff over and over and over and over and over again and you should be okay.

    you poor soul my god have mercy upon you.

    The finance department is my worst painful chunk o company.

    Are you trapped and surrounded by the SJs? They have such value in such little black and white boxes. so neat, so well defined.

    The thing is they dont know jack about computers and I am working basically for my town which wants to boost business in the town in general. Most of the business is engineering which the SJs again know nothing about. I have got a lot of jokers to play

    ah, you are the key to the system.

    they require you and thus the whole system functions.

    some of our oracle folks are like this, pure entps who hide out to themselves but keep the whole cluster running.

    do you get mostly independnt fuunctioning?
