    I tend to get into new industries early and get out before the market gets saturated.

    To me that's a huge assumption for the type that can confuse people. Because for example why cant an ENTJ be good at becoming a gardener ?

    I am just saying as romantic as this whole mbti theory is, it must leave more room for options or it can narrow down ones mind in a corner full of stereotypes.
    Probably because they are very good at making a well though through plan and them implementing it - agressively if needs be - there also very strategic with there Ni and capable of "playing the game" very well with - Te-Se. They can dominate and progress strategically while still being aware of the wider options and possibilities and of looking and acting like they "should".

    Any examples? as I'm curious as I recently made a mate who is 19 and has an IT consultancy and repair business and wanted to look at how to do something like that.

    Examples on how to get a job? You just have to do it. I don't know how else to describe it. I read constantly, I study constantly, I am aware of trends. Can you be more specific?

    I've worked in software, pharmaceuticals, music, film and a few other industries - usually coming in as the only one proficient in xyz technology at the moment. I don't study something for an end goal other than just to know what this thing is, so it often surprises me that my skills are in demand.

    Oh right. I presumed by new industries that you were starting businesses rather than working in new areas of existing businesses.

    I've done both - starting new businesses, coming in as consultant in an existing business... what difference does it make?

    I'm lost. What exactly are you asking me - how to start a business or how to be ahead of the markets or what?

    And if they fail at it are they NF then ?

    There are many shades of grey

I have little feeling when it comes to dealing with people. I don't treat them any better or worse than I treat myself. And I'm not a mean person- I just find myself interacting with them as little as possible.

    You could say that's a bad thing- but my current job almost permits it. One part of it, yes, is support- but I have no trouble with it because, as sick as it sounds, I like to be acknowledged as knowing a great deal about something and being relied upon for it. But, I in no way would ever work at a summer camp, as a secretary, a customer support line, a retail store, a fast food restaurant, a restaurant (unless I'm running it), etc. Before responding to this, read below:



    And I agree. I feel my words have been a bit misinterpreted. I love challenges. Big challenges at that. I think my procrastination comes from putting off things things I find small and insignificant, which I find a lot of things to fit this model, especially daily life. But things I am fascinated by I see as significant, which includes buildings and creating them. Hence my focus on architecture. Which is something you really can't bullshit your way through and is appealing because of it.

    And I do have a very general goal of what I want to do with my life; but I'm pretty okay if it changes. “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
    This sounds much better. I know little to nothing about architecture but my guess is that success lies partially in how much talent you have and partially in how effective you apply it. The world of business is best thought of as a marketplace. You make money in correlation to the contribution you make to revenue and profit – either for someone else or for yourself.

    It is like the writer or artist whose works sell out, the professional athlete or entertainer has to put “butts in seats”, and the entrepreneur who starts a business needs to grow a business. A service or product is provided, it must be sold, and people must buy it. The architect will have clients who are paying for the service. I think perhaps even if you are Frank Lloyd Wright, you need to have a relationship with your clients, you need to sell and you need to bring in revenues. Early on, others may help you to do some of these things but to get into the big leagues, you need to take more of these things on yourself. The goods or services that you provide are likely produced with others. Bottom line is that interpersonal relationships and skills matter a lot.
    Then there is always luck. NT can help you to be in the right place at the right time, but there is still a lot of luck involved and you need to make it happen.

    Ehhhh when you work for yourself that's definitely true, when you work for someone I think the correlation can be pretty low among a whole company.
