    The site listed them for ISTJs though. I say it's biased! :steam:

    I was expecting for comics draftsman, stuntman, porn star, martial master, streap-tease girls trainer, superball champion, god of the cinema, or rock star sex-symbol but there's not. I'm very disapointed!:steam:

    The ISTP I know is currently doing a course in culinary arts, but she's bored of it. She's signing up to a course in Spanish language.

    She also looked into criminal-esque courses, like criminal justice. The accounting module put her off, though. Then she considered the armed forces, but passed on it.

    I don't think she's career-minded? The courses are probably a way to pass the time constructively whilst widening her options in terms of job-seeking.
    Um, yeah.

    Anything consitant would get boring. I need constant change. Thats what I like about technician or mechanic. Its always new projects, new problems. I would love to get into custom car stereo or custom engine builds as those fields are always pushing the bar in what can be done in a field I enjoy(music and fast).

    Computer programming(which I do) keeps me thinking, but I lack the physical portion that I desire where custom stereo and custom engine builds provide the push knowledge wise and the physical, hands on portion that I enjoy. It has to be custom though as I like to push the bar higher and higher in what I can accomplish. The job portion as opposed to owning my own business would be because I dont want to focus on defining some goal, but on the actual hands on work and knowledge to complete a goal. I dont want to manage, I want to work.

    Mechanical work isn't as new and exciting as you'd think. Sure there are the odd problems you'll get that require a bit of ingenuity, but for the most part... after your 50th time changing the oil on something, or doing a routine valve adjustment, or replacing a serpentine belt.. you get the picture.

    Also it doesn't help that you are under the gun to work quickly and efficiently, you'll only get paid how many hours it's supposed to take to fix something, so if you spend 3 hours doing an oil change that only books at 30 minutes you're getting paid for 30 minutes of work.

    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    I worked at discount tire when I was 20. It was fun until management got all strict and said no throwing the tools, spinning tools, jumping over tires to pop them up, you can no longer race each other changing tires. I did get all the high end cars though and the ones where people wanted to squeeze a wider tire then the wheel was designed for. Did this on alot of mustangs and camaros. One other guy tried it and turned partially into the joker. Bar split the corner of his mouth open.

    But, yes by the time you have done everything it requires no thought. Your talking to a person who just for the hell of it imported an engine from Japan, did an engine swap, rewired and installed megasquirt and programmed it without any professional help. Unfortunatley I got busy and while the car runs I never got around to rewelding the exhaust so I have not been able to fully road tune it using the wide band oxygen sensor. I like custom as yes repetitive just turns into following tried and true methods and gets well repetitive.

    My ISTP husband's first love is farming. Grew up as a pig farmer's son and one day will buy the family farm. He went to agricultural college and realized that farming would not pay the bills so he went with his second love -fixing things- and got his Truck and Coach Mechanic Licence plus his Auto Licence (you need a licence to work as such in Canada).

    He loves working on big trucks (construction etc) but now works on medium trucks (henio) due to back problems. He too loves to work with his hands and does not look forward to a service managers (desk) job in the industry.

    The job usually is not routine. When things come in (whether booked or not) most of the time the driver does not know what's wrong or there are more problems than what is obvious. Sometimes he has to do a service call, where a truck has broken down on the road (or won't start), diagnose and fix it on the spot if he can. If he can't fix it or it is too dangerous to work on it, he'll call the tow truck.

    He also works on refeer units (the machine that keeps the inside of a truck cool/cold for transporting food).

    No. Not the family farms. Every political party promises to support farmers. :rolli:

    There are income tax write offs associated with having a family farm and there are government loans. If you want, you can buy crop insurance but usually that is a waste of money and an expense that farmers can't afford.

    I'm not too sure but farming might be one of those grey areas regarding a power struggle btwn provincial and federal. The land that you farm would fall under provincial power but if you grew crops for international export, then that would fall under federal power.

    IMO, farming is extremely political and a tax nightmare.

    And would you believe, that every trade can write off their tools on their income taxes except for mechanics. :steam:
