    Default ENTJ's - homicide detective

    ENTJ's, do you think that you would make a good homicide detective? Like on the show "The First 48"? I can't think of any other type that would be better suited for this job than ENTJ. INTJ's could do it, but there is a lot of interfacing with people. NTP's could do it, but you must be results driven - to the point of staying up for 3 nights straight until you find the answers - you must constantly push forward and seek out answers until the problem is solved. If the NTP was prone to losing interest or getting bored with a task, this definitely wouldn't be the right career. You absolutely cannot get bored. You must plug through all day and all night until the case is solved.

    I could see ESTJ's doing the job, but I would think Ni would serve one much better than Si in this career. As a street cop, I think ESTJ's might be better suited. As a homicide detective, I would think ENTJ. Do you see yourself lacking any certain skills for this career or do you think you would be really good at it?
    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.

    I actually have considered going into law enforcement long ago. I feel confident saying that I would have been well suited for the job and the foregoing description does describe it pretty accurately. I would get a "thrill" of of such job, it would provide all the stimulation I need.

    But after looking at the pay-scale, I ended up in business and corporate finance.

    Yes, this is what I've been thinking on many occasions. I think this job would be thrilling with just enough mental stimulation to keep an ENTJ satisfied.

    I actually had a dream last year where I was a detective. I've also fantasized about being a crime lord. I would like to think ENTJs are well suited for both.

    Watch Heat and see great ENTJ detective skills in action . This renders it very feasible.
