    Not sure.
    But one of my friends told me that I'd make a great math/econ professor/teacher... something to consider?

    I couldn't abide having to actually finish a research study. Or teach the same class twice. Blech. But the biggest reason I specifically chose not to be a professor was that I couldn't imagine myself hanging out with other professors and navigating the politics of academia. I had to actually create and produce something.

    My dream job would be to be Charlie Rose.

    My long-term goal is to be a professor, seems like the perfect job to me. I could teach classes however I want (no need to plan extensively if I don't want to), I can research whatever interests me, I can be with people all day long, and I never need to teach a class the same way twice.

    I taught at a tech camp this past summer, teaching programming crap to kids up to 17, and it was the best job of my life. The more sophisticated the students, the more fun I would have.

    Also good for mental masturbating, which is something many love but few will admit to loving :P
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    i started out in engineering and got disenchanted with the reality of what typically goes on in the engineering world (paperwork and repetitive support instead of design), so i went into playing with noise (sound engineering) and event production. After 10 years of this, im getting a lil tired of being "just" the sound guy considering i hold the event planners hands enough.

    id really like to manage a facility where others collaborate on creative things so i can go produce that film idea that's been sitting in my head

    As some users stated earlier, I don't want my hobbies to become tedious. I love photography as a release from my daily activities.

    I noticed something here in this post, and maybe it is just me, but I see a lot of ENTP's with "burnout" syndrome. They get into a career for a while and then burnout on it, only to look for a new one.

    yup

    I started out in Finance, did well at it, but didn't make enough to retire, but still felt I had conquered it

    now I'm in Human Resources consulting, which some might think odd because I'm about as "T" as they get, but it's kept my interest for a couple years, hopefully a few more at least

    -army guy
    -theoretical/quantum physics scientist
    -high exec in some high-execy company
    -entrepreneur except this sounds like a lot of proactive work

    I was a math professor there for a while, and the main thing I liked about it was flexible hours and not having to work summers if you don't want. I.e. the best part of that job was not being there, lol. However I don't really know of any other jobs I like either, so I can't really give advice as to what is good for an ENTP to go into.
