    Default SP's, what job do you have?

    I was wandering around the NF Idyllic forum and found a very interesting topic, http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...-you-have.htmland inspired me to post this thread.

    So, I'm interested on how many SP's really are into typical SP occupations and how many are not. Also, state your satisfaction/dissatisfaction regarding your occupations.

    Btw, I'm still a medical technology student which is a field for xSTJ's and ISFJ, but I'm loving every minute of it!

    So far I have delivered newspapers, worked at a supermarket, cleaned schools and as an adult I have been a baker, a bakery production manager, a gym trainer, a personal trainer and an English teacher and a few other things short term.

    Accounts Receivable basically, not what I would consider an SP job but it's surprisingly satisfying.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    My occupational history is below:|
    ---------------------------------
    (1) Age 15 = Domino's Pizza (Phones and Make Line)
    (2) Age 16-17 = Sizzler Steak House (Cashier and Bus Boy)
    (3) Age 17-20 = Optical Salesperson, Contact Lens Technician, Optician
    (4) Age 20-24 = Personal Trainer
    (5) Age 24-25 = Systems Engineer + Software Instructor/Curriculum Designer
    (6) Age 25-26 = Applications Developer / Software Sales Representative
    (7) Age 26-30 = Business Process Analyst
    (8) Age 30-32 = Project Manager / Lead Analyst
    (9) Age 32-35 = Senior Database Analyst / Contract Manager

    --------------------------------------------
    I've made money via self employment as well.|
    --------------------------------------------
    -Age 8-10 I mowed lawns and raked leaves

    -Age 10-15 I detailed cars

    -Age 30-33 I waited tables at a BBQ restaurant, DJed at a local bar, and did landscaping to make extra money as my second daughter was born and I wanted to keep my wife at home as long as possible.

    Bottom line is this: I'm an industrious bastard with a love of cash flow. I do what it takes to make my schemes come to life. My objectives will be met. It might break my back at times but the sweet victory of seeing my plans come to life is worth it every time!

    freelance graphic artist/web designer. It was the only career I could think of that would allow me the most amount of time to play music. I spent a few months reading thousands of pages on everything I'd ever need to know about web design (I'd been a graphic artist for two years already) and then I was more than ready to dive right in.

    Cool! What music do you play? I looooooove music.

    If I had a choice in the matter I'd be a bodybuilder and a DJ.

    I have always worked in hospitality jobs, the longest as flight attendant.

    I hope that I had your drive. I usually won't do something unless it's something I really enjoy. Often, I would think of doing something and unless it's very important(for me), it'll will be left undone.

    Hmm...I'm quite impressed with your "resume". I can describe you as an all-around person, ambitious(in positive terms), and driven. I just would like to ask if ST's or particularly ESTP's are like this.

    freelance reporter and photographer... pet sitter... election inspector... baby sitter...
    I went to school for journalism but it pays next to nothing and no one wants to read newspapers anymore...
    Time for a career change...
    sigh...
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
