    I showed up here at the right time.

    Ahhhhhhhh.....thank you for recognizing this. As the wise and good Substitute says, ESTPs are impossible to dissuade once they are commited to a cause. When we are bored we commit to silly things, but when properly motivated we will stop at nothing to accomplish our objective.

    Some of the happiest moments of my life have been working toward a cause I believed in. Then I win, I relish the moment, and a new cause must be found. Ahhhhhh...blessed life!!!

    Just assume that there is a way, then find it.
    Don't judge demand based on what you see in the classified job ads.
    What happens when being creative is not what you're particularly good at?

    What if I'm really good at assembling a front end on an automobile, and a robot comes along that does my job for 90% less cost?

    That's a job, not skills or talent. And I doubt it is where your passions lie!

    Money isn't everything for people. I'd say people either...

    1. Don't really care
    2. Don't know how (due to not caring or otherwise not)

    Yeah. I don't care.

    Why not? If the skills that go into assembling a front end are what I excel at, what happens when those skills are no longer in demand?

    Although it is not unheard of for someone to lose a job as a skilled worker and be unable to find other work, I imagine the kind of skills it takes to assemble the front end of a car would be applicable in many other jobs.

    Space has no edge.
    It is only finite.
    Why?

    Point is counter point.

    Welfare is not an add.
    Profit is not an add either.

    The automotive part is just something you learned. You can apply your skills to other industries. If you ENJOY doing the type of work you do, you could do the same sort of thing with medical equipment, Oil/gas/green power/Energy equipment, aerospace etc.
