    I am motivated to work for one of two reasons: (1) A personally gratifying job that pays enough for me to live comfortably, or (2) A job that pays great and is of variable gratification, but allows me to save quickly for a given objective.

    Since becoming a father I have stuck more with the stable, gratifying jobs as I like to have time with my kiddies and if I need to make extra cash I can do that in my free time.

    Thanks! My father is ESTJ, and I am very much like him. One of my best friends is ESFP and he lacks such drive, but is successful in things outside of his occupation.

    So based on a hunch, you like to make money.

    My ISTP friend/co-worker has worked in Russia as an English teacher, she works as an admin/front desk person now and has told me she's worked for Subway in the past. She will be graduating with her master's in Publishing and teaching English in Korea for a year 2010. Afterward she wants to get her Phd so she can become an English professor...go figure.

    I'm starting grad school in the fall, so I just have a summer job for now. I mostly maintain the animals used in research, mostly aquatic (various fish, frogs). Sort of like a vet tech, I guess. Not a job I could have forever but I don't mind it so far.

    I intend to work in health research after grad school. My masters will be cancer/endocrinology stuff, so probably I'll continue in the same general area. I think it's not really an SP job, tending to be more N and J.

    Previous jobs: several lab tech-like jobs, gov't data entry, and cashier. Nothing very exciting yet.

    She still wants to be an English teacher-slash-professor. Consistent

    Maybe when I have kids of my own, my work attitude would turn for the better...hope so!

    You could be developing your N side...or, it's all a matter of what you're interested in.

    You've been a baker?! I love sweets I once considered of being a pastry chef myself so that I can eat all the sweets I can..though it's bad for your health if eaten too much
