    Default ISTP Career Interest

    Found a list of careers I felt more vibed as to giving variety and clarity to career considerations. For fun, thought the next post would be on one's I'd already done, what I thought of them.

    Examples of careers often chosen by your type as a career personality profile fit include:

    •Farmer
    •Military Officer or Enlistee
    •Electrical Engineer
    •Electrical Technician
    •Coal Miner
    •Transportatikon Operator
    •Dental Hygienist
    •Construction, Warehouse, Groundskeeper
    •Mechanic
    •Legal Secretary
    •Cleaning Service Worker
    •Surveyor
    •Corrections Officer
    •Carpenter
    •Construction Worker
    •Steelworker
    •Cook
    •Small Business Manager
    •Physician: Pathology
    •Mechanical Engineer
    •Craft Worker
    •Computer Programmer
    •Law Enforcement
    •Lawyer
    •Engineering
    •Optometrist
    •City Works Technician
    •Media Specialist
    •Dental Assistant
    •Federal Manager

    •Respiratory Therapist
    •Computer Operations & Systems
    •School Bus Driver
    •Storekeeper
    •Corporate Manager
    •Adult Education Teacher
    •Coaching

    Your type is found much less often in and attracted less by work characterized as requiring a great deal of nurturing work, relationship-oriented work and/or work that requires attention to more highly theoretical, abstract and symbolic material such as:

    •Pollice Detective
    •Director of Religious Education
    •Student Personnel Administration (college)
    •Journalist
    •Education Consultant
    •Aeronauticall Engineer
    •Clerical Supervisor
    •Biology Scientist
    •Actor
    •Research Assistant
    •Nursing & Public Health
    •Dentist
    •Receptionist
    •Pre-School Teacher
    •Fine Artist
    •Architect
    •Psychodrama Therapist (pshychology)
    •Crisis Counselor
    •Occupational Therapist
    •Religious Order Lay Member

    •Farmer - When I was a kid, loved collecting eggs, feeding the pigs, driving the tractor.
    •Military Officer or Enlistee - almost but backed out when the only school they would guarantee me is Nuclear Engineering. Pay would have been awesome post service, but yuck!
    •Electrical Technician - I can rough wire a house and troubleshooting any electrical problem.
    •Transportation Operator - Bush Gardens Tampa, loved it.
    •Construction, Warehouse, Groundskeeper - Temp jobs when younger and enjoyed.
    •Mechanic - Only on my own or a friends vehicle
    •Cook - Weekend gig as a cook for a juvenile home. Got canned after kids complained that the food wasn't as good during the week.
    •Computer Programmer - coding back in the day sucked, no likey.
    •Lawyer - very knowlegable on probate legal issues, wouldn't want to be one though.
    •Computer Professional - current occupation and for many years, want a change now.
    •Typist - did a stint of production data/entry, wasn't bad...could mentally disengage.
    •Computer Operations & Systems - current profession
    •Storekeeper - worked in a drug store. Enjoyed it a lot.
    •Corporate Manager - sucked into entry management type positions, hated it each time.
    •Coaching - enjoyed coaching sports here and there.

    that seems like a good list. i like the gist of it.
    here are a couple others that seem like ISTP type jobs to me:
    • equipment operator (operating backhoes, excavators, cranes, etc.)
    • fishing ship
    • sawmill jobs
    • forest service, or park ranger

    Nice additions Kingfisher, I used to wonder what it'd be like to be a longshoreman, or work on a fishing ship...or an oil rig. Or a tug boat, etc.

    They should just stop the glossing and put in cult devotee.


    I actually think police detectives aren't that bad. I think I had aspired to be one when I was little, reading Sherlock Holmes.

    That one kind of made me wonder too? Like maybe it'd be more interesting to be on the frontline vs. behind the desk?

    They have accountant on that list. Accounting is really unacceptable to me.
