    I've been going back and forth on careers for a long time.
    Originally I wanted to be a lawyer, but everyone wants to be one (at least all the history majors I run into).

    I love photography, but I don't want to do it for a living (poverty stricken)

    I debated about starting my own business, but to what end and what function?

    i still cant decide what I want to do and I'm in the midst of another mid life crisis right now. I have gone through the sales, military, accounting and not one could hold me for more than a few years. Professor would be cool if I didn't actually have to do all the schooling to get there.

    Every career test i take ends up photography at the top of the list. if I could merge a few things with photography, i think it would last a while. like traveling, but having kids doesn't work well with that.

    I do think I've hit a wall where I know now that I should stop and really think out what I'm going to do that I can last a while at. I have the opportunity to go back to school for free, but my biggest fear is that I will do it and when I'm done I will already be bored with the subject.

    I don't know about you guys, but the best career for me involves making a lot of $$$ which is why I'm sticking to pharmacy.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    exactly.. the perfect career for me is anything legal that pays lots of my $$$ for my other interests AND that doesn't get in the way(time wise) of my living my life pursuing my interests. at one point I thought about doing the professor thing but the academic community is SO small and tends to be tedious and doesn't pay that well.

    I'm a project manager/localization engineer in the translation industry and I like. My days are different, the pay is great, I get to travel, and I have time for a work/life balance

    You're living the dream !

    This may sound insane, but I would hate to have a job that involved doing something that I like. For instance... say I love photography and music, but I would hate to be a musician or photographer. I like to keep my hobbies/interest separate from work and school. And I am a lot happier that way.

    Also, I'm very materialistic anyway so I need a job that pays a lot. I want to travel and buy ridiculous things that I don't need

    This is exactly the way I feel about it, as well. I don't want the few things that interest me to become tedious.

    I havent come that far in my life yet to actually understand the logic behind a thing that I like possibly be able to become tedious.

    I nevertheless do feel the same urge tho to keep my real intrests out of the job. That's a thing many people I met do not understand and I do not understand it myself.

    The only reasonable explanation I got, draws the meaning of freedom into the equation.

The idea of being able to encourage people with new ideas, go around helping them out where stuck, providing another point of view, but still getting last say on how it looks is nice. Problem is... paperwork, yay, but every job has it's downside or it wouldn't be work now would it?

    The biggest thing to consider is whether it's worth the 'work' part and whether there's enough of the 'fun' part to go with it.

    Being able to CREATE something is also pretty important, osmething that can be shown off or given to others, but maybe that's just me, not sure if it's a typical entp preferance for work.
    That is why I'm going for architecture
