I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Dec 13, 2019
Bit of a slowlane question! but I'm curious, what jobs are recommended for an ENTP? This could also help be an indicator for businesses that are good for ENTPs too.
I've worked happily as a programmer and as a writer. The key thing for me is autonomy and creative freedom. Programming and writing can both be soul-crushing when I have stupid requirements and not enough freedom, but when I have jobs where I am trusted to think for myself and I'm doing good work, it's very rewarding.
These are both generally solo pursuits (although a lot of my time programming does include talking through design decisions, etc. with co-workers and stakeholders), but that doesn't seem to matter as far as beign "extroverted". I do gain energy when I'm working with others or showing off my work, but I also enjoy being left alone to focus.
I don't know if that helps. Maybe it points out that what matters is not the job, but the qualities of your role. Another example, I was a machinist for 4 years in my early-20s. I really enjoyed parts of the job where I was given a blueprint and left alone with a block of metal to figure it out. I did not enjoy when someone else had already done the tool-making, setup, CNC programming and I was just there to push a button and take measurements.
