    Default ENTP: What do you do for a living?

    Why should INTPs have all the fun?

    I'm studying computer systems information, and I occasionally freelance as an English-Spanish translator, although I mostly just mooch off my dad.

    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    It depends.

    On the plus side, emergency scenes are dynamic and rapidly changing. It's important to accurately process incomplete information in a compressed amount of time, run it through a risk/benefit analysis, and formulate an action plan that realistic, achievable, and most importantly, flexible.

    Ne/Ti seems to be a fairly good combination to make that happen.

    On the negative side, the fire service is traditional and hierarchical and ENTPs are nothing if not non-conformists. This certainly causes some tension, since we're the most reluctant of all types to do things in a particular manner because "it's the way it's always been done."

    Chief officers are not accustomed to firefighters (or low ranking officers) saying things like, "That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard in my life." So I've had to learn the art of subtlety and how to finesse things politically behind closed doors.

    It also wasn't natural for me to want to lead or discipline people. However, there is a positive there, too. ENTPs do not tend to abuse power. Once we learn how to lead (mostly it's overcoming problems with organization), we can bring out the best in our subordinates, build high functioning teams, and accomplish goals that fundamentally change the way the system operates.

    Until recently I worked in a care home for severely autistic adults, as a care worker.

    Before that I did all sorts of stuff, including private tuition (mostly languages, bit of English and science), translating, transcribing (writing that's v.messy or damaged paper, hard to read etc such as old manuscripts), research and bar work. I've also done handwriting analysis professionally, both for ordinary people who just "want to know" and for the police, historians etc.

    I enjoyed the bar work and transcription most.

    Now I'm full time homeschooling my kids. I'm personally teaching them all subjects of the curriculum plus others not covered at school (citizenship, life skills etc), which entails all the research, preparation, planning and marking of any teaching job. But for 11 subjects, up to British GCSE level, which I think is equivalent to round about high school diploma in the US. It's a good use of a polymath's skills, challenging and flexible, though not well paid... not paid at all in fact

    But if I did it for someone else's kids, I'd get paid a fortune for it.
    I'm male and over 30, FYI.
