    I was thinking more along the lines of Intel, Microsoft, Apple, IBM, Boeing, Symantec, Yahoo, medical programs, etc. It seems like a more stable work environment to work with a company that focuses on practical applications than video games.

    I have guys in my class talking about the complexity of how much math and such is involved with doing game design with hair and such.. It was cool to listen to, but it seems pointless to put so much work into making hair flow perfectly. What's the benefit of that? It just looks nice, but I see no way that would help society other than making a virtual reality seem more real.

    I do see myself working on future updates of cloud development or even the newer versions of IDEs and Microsoft Office. :P

    Working on practical programs seems more helpful to me than working on games, and I like the idea of making things to make people's lives easier. :D
    That is ur Fi - Te talking! And treating job like a game is Ne.

    Hi everyone!

    It is now 7 years later since I started this thread.

    I've moved from southern California and work in San Francisco now!

    I also work my dream job as a Data Visualization Engineer at an Enterprise AI company. I mainly data visualizations of complex data science problems, but I also am helping to build out the company's processes and infrastructure.

    The work I do marries data and art together to make practical apps that give insights on data so that users can make better decisions from it. I'm also fortunate to work closely with a design team and am learning from their visual design expertise as well.

    Some similar data vis practioners to my work can be found here.

    It's been a long journey but a very happy, challenging and fulfilling one.

    I'm working towards getting the experience toward a Project Management Professional (PMP) certificate in the next 3 years. My end goal is to architect $10 million+ projects, just like my female Software Architect professor who is a Software Architect at Raytheon.

    Still an INFP here! I struggle at times with boredom and idealism and escaping reality, but at the same time, I'm fortunate to be living the life that I've made for myself. Also, it helps that's my fiancé is an ESTJ, so he keeps me grounded. I'm also happy that he supports me streaming on Twitch as a hobby.

    Thanks for reading and following along my journey.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Always happy to help!

    I think an ENFP could do well, assuming it's a strong interest of yours, because I understand you guys sometimes switch careers and hobbies more often because of your strong Ne and Fi and weak Si. However, that same function placement makes you great with ideas and I think that's what you would offer the most to a company or team. Because of the competition with other companies and frequent adaptions necessary to integrate new technologies idea people are very valuable.
