    I love the fact that I'm my own boss now, and that seemed to do the trick as far as making me happy at my job.

    Does anyone else have this problem?
    Yes, but I thought this was more of an ENTP problem?

    EDIT: There's something there. Will have to ponder on this for significant contribution.

    What about a long term. 10+ years (in Te time) goal?


    Then the little dots can start getting connected by that big (N) goal.

    i kinda have a bad habit of mastering something and then getting bored with it. luckily i figured out a solution for this(which will hopefully work as well as it sounds in theory ), dont try to master anything you know you can ever fully master. for example i figured out that psychology would be my perfect career choice, since its impossible to understand the whole human mind from all the perspectives(neurological, psychological etc).

    Lol, I am also pursuing a psychology career for the same reasons.

    I've done about 20% of the homework ever assigned to me. I made straight C's thanks to kind teachers and strong test scores. I was recently fired from my managorial position at a Uhaul for delaying implementation of vital programs, despite improving my P&L sheet to things never seen at that store in the 40 years its been open.

    Yeah, it sucks.

    I envy and admire people who have the discipline and strength of will and inner focus to hold a regular job, be great at it and become an authority in their field without going "oh, look, a squirrel!!!" at the first chance they get. People who really master a skill.
    This this this. This with knobs on. I'm terrible for starting something, then getting distracted by a shiny object and moving onto that. It's depressing, because it means I never achieve what I'm really capable of. Seems like I waste all my potential this way. Friends at school who were (in all honesty) much less bright but more methodical and diligent are doing far better in the real world than I am. Mistaking "self-discipline" for "screaming at myself until I'm paralysed and miserable" is also an issue. Spent years working on my Fe; this is now the main thing I hope to work on at this point in my life.

    You need to find something that's difficult enough to hold your attention almost indefinitely. Try going for a PhD in theorethical physics aiming for a Nobel Prize, for example. Or climbing every >8000 mountain on earth.
