    Default Stubborn INTP 5 Doesn't wanna get RICH

    Ok so I'm a wannabe rich bastard.

    My INTP 5 brother has so much potential, but absolutely no desire to profit off of it. He has a youtube video with over 200,000 hits. He makes art that he wants to sell, but has no one to buy the art. I'm sitting here telling him:

    Put a link in your youtube video to your tumblr. Channel your viewers to your blog. Monetize your blog, make your own website. Start making some money.

    Him: No. I don't wanna.
    Me: but you can make money by sitting around doing absolutely nothing!
    Him: I make 1200 bucks a month watching rats run in circles on a table.
    Me: but...


    wtf is this guy's problem? lmao.

    I would just make the website anyway and profit from it for yourself DJ - your brother seems too lazy to care.

    Offer him a deal where you get a cut of the money for doing the work. If he refuses, increase his percentage.

    lmao. I might just steal all his work and start making money off of it, lol. Then when he gets upset I'll hand him the money an control over the website.

    My brother and I are very different, but t I never tried to tell him how to live his life. If he did it me, I'd tell him to fuck off.

    That makes sense. I don't like being told how to live my life either. Maybe I was being too pushy. I tend to do that.

    An youtube video with 200,000 views is not gonna make anyone rich. Could be a small start, sure, but keeping a profitable blog or tumblr to capitalize the success of the video can take a lot of work.

    Interesting. Is he a scientist? What if he sees more potential in that? I mean, he could find a cure to some disease, make tons of money, and also join History.

    Actually he said he sees more potential in his line of work. Yes he is a scientist, a psychologist actually.

    He sounds pretty self-content. If he's not in a financial bind then I would say that his lack of focus on money is more of a virtue than anything else.
