NOT ME (speaking as a specific ENFP). I hate driving a car because I am not well-attuned to my surroundings, and am constantly daydreaming, so it's an especially terrible idea for me to fly a plane.
I have an ISTP friend who got her pilot's license, and most people type Amelia Earhart as an ISTP as well (although she might not have been *that* good, since, you know...)
I think ISTJs, ESTXs, and ENFJs have the potential to be good airplane pilot. ISTJs would be on top of things and make sure everything was in order. The same with ESTJ/Ps but they might be more vocal about things. An ENFJ would be very caring and would have what it takes in my book.
Yeah, its fun!
Thank you Rebecca, I understand these pieces of advice from you. I also think that it is fun to fly small planes in the beginning of your career as a pilot (about my post on doing barrel rolls, it was just a joke :D). I certainly would love being a pilot for 2 reasons: 1, being able to travel (I dream of visiting Europe one day), and 2, controlling a machine that would help me fly. I can tell that you are dedicated to your job, so once again, thanks for the advice. 😀
