I have been thinking about starting an account, to make a thread about the best type of job for an ENTP, for awhile now. I'm 18, and really do not know what type of job would be good for me. I have had many ideas, and tend to change my mind every week. I'm not too worried about the future, but would like to see some discussion on the subject.
In the past, I have thought seriously about being a:
*Businessman (More specifically a self-employed/entrepreneur)
I usually fit the criteria in the below categories, in no specific order (And the list is probably not complete, but provides a general idea):
*Something that is able to make lots of money, so that I can live comfortably (Travel, Have lots of toys, etc.)
*Something where I am going to have a lot of freedom to move, and not be constrained by schedules, bosses, rules, etc.
*Something where I am able to work with my own themes and ideas, use my mind, and apply that to my work. Something that allows me a lot of creative freedom to work with themes and change things around.
*Something that would be fun to do, and could see myself doing for my entire life.
*Something that is not going to be overbearing and too time consuming, so that I can do other things, and work on other facets of my life.
*Something that changes, and is not incredibly routine.
*Something where I do not have to work within a system, and deal with all the nonsense that goes with it.
*Something that allows me to work with people, but not be stuck with people. I like to be around people, and prefer to work with them versus being stuck in a room by myself. But I am easily annoyed by them, and need a decent amount of alone time, as well. I'm pretty independent.
I like each job in many ways, but tend to find faults in each of them and become discouraged, causing me to switch what I want to do and never fully make up my mind. I understand I am 18 and in no big hurry, but my future is something I think about, and does bother me incredibly.
Can anyone provide me with some general insights on how an ENTP should best pick careers? Can I here some things to avoid/look for, or some real life experiences? Any dicussion is good discussion. (I probably will not take much of this threat to heart, sadly, and will still have to figure it out on my own. But it will still provide my one more resource in making a decision. Whenever I make it.)
