    Welcome, as well. I've changed careers a multitude of times and I will probably keep doing so until the day I die. Once I became conscious of my need for variety, I felt that this awareness was proof that I am "grown up". No worries, just do what makes you happy. Until the next thing comes along that grabs your attention...

    ...ugh. That's my fear. Changing careers, spending $$$ and time, and not liking it again in 10 years. Are most ENTPs like this? Common trait for our personalities?

    They say it's an ENTP trait but I don't know what's common for all, but it's pretty common for me. I just accept it. I make a lot of money in whatever I do, then I turn around and blow it all on more education and traveling. Then I make a ton of money in a new career, rinse and repeat. I'm 32, female and single, my decisions drive my parents crazy but I live my life for myself, not for them.

    Seems like you are trying to hold yourself up to someone's standards of what life is supposed to be like, but what are your standards? Can you really see yourself making a decision now that will carry you through life? If that's what you want, you may find a lot of self-hatred and self-denial down the road. But then again, I can only speak for myself... There are some who find comfort in routine or in being an expert in a certain field - I find comfort in discovering and conquering. It makes me feel alive.

    i, personally, always saw this as a plus, but even seeing it that way, i still know what you mean.

    and i handled it exactly like the following post (i could have typed it myself):

    This is why I joined the website, thanks! It pretty much sums it up for me too! Unfortunely, the standards are mine. I set them so damn high, don't know why, just do. I don't like routine either, or desk work. Took me 10 yrs to finger out this one. And, discovering and conquering is all the fun, then move on...

    I find it easy to answer other peoples questions, be very difficult to answer my own.

Just tired of this shit... I've been in the computer field for 10 years, and am currently going for my Masters in I.T. The big problem is, that I am just kidding myself.

    I'm looking to make waves by getting into some medical fields. Namely physical thereapy, but I'm a ENTP. Does this matter? I've taken the Myers and Briggs challange multiple times on different days, and it's always the same. I'm a ENTP! In my terms, "a damn smart day-dreamer"!

    I simply cannot decide what career path I want to get into. Would physical thereapy make no sense for my personality?

    Thanks,
    Ed
    As a suggestion, take the career profile dealio test on humanmetrics.com
