    Hello fellow Liquid ENTP. My advice is as brief as it is profound. I suggest you try out this career, and if you don't like it then do something else.

    (No need to thank me. Your ignoring this post will be thanks enough.)

    What do you guys think?
    Richard Feynman gave the world one of the first thoughts into the possibility of nano-technology. He was also rumoured to be an ENTP. Jus' sayin'.

    I love research. I thrive on it, actually. I did clinical research for a while and loved it so much. I think this is suitable to the ENTP who uses Ne like a weapon - you have to be thorough beyond belief, relentless and really be able to see angles to explore that no one else can conceive of. It was writing the reports that was the death of me. The paperwork, my god, the paperwork...

    Me too. Researcher was one of my favorite occupations ... albeit was in grad school and I didn't get paid much. Still, exploring new concepts rocks. Nowadays I spend too much time recreating the same thing over and over again.

    Thanks, a lot for all the replies. I have found a new confidence and some encouragement to do my best and get into the best UNI possible.

    I worked in competitive intelligence for 8 years before taking my business full time. I miss it and am trying to get back into. I love digging up information and writing about it.

    Oh yeah, and having a real salary again would be nice.

    can some explain exactly what is involved in nanoengineering and how to get into it?

    "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!

    ENTP - ideas and breakthroughs
    INTJ - data collection and offhand comments the ENTP can work with
    ESTP - promoting the hell out of the rest of it and slamming beers with the ENTP/INTJ after work on Friday

    It's very much a team effort. The ENTP's "research" is mostly going to consist of conversations with the INTJ and following up on the things that pique interest throughout the course of a conversation. There isn't going to be a lot of "pure" research, because quite frankly, that's boring drudgery and not the best application of resources. Meanwhile, the ESTP is absolutely critical - he's the one that's going to get the ENTP jacked up enough on extraverted energy to start blurting things out to the higher ups, and make sure the INTJ's getting laid enough to not feel like he's unappreciated.

    Nanoengineering is just the manipulation of things at the nanoscale, so basically manipulation of individual atoms. There are a whole bunch of different fields you could work in it for, like electronics, materials, medecine, devices or anything, but the idea is that youre basically trying to change the properties of the material by focusing on the atomic scale.
