I thought it would be interesting to get a poll of how much ENTP's actually make considering how inaccurate I thought the information from the other poll was.

It would be more informative there was some criteria from biasing it, "For those working full time, what do you make" or something like that. There are a lot of high school and college students and some stay-at-home parents on this too. I suspect we may end up getting a lot of 10,000-19,999 because of students biasing it. Everyone made barely anything when they were students. We need to make sure it is apples to apples, if we want to make this normalized data (pushes up science nerd glasses).

True but I know ENTP's who are making really good money while being students as well.

Yes, but I don't think that is norm. I still think it isn't going to show normalized data but a spike at 10,000-19,999 and then a maybe a higher slight spike. We shall see...

Well considering no one is voting, I imagine we won't have enough results to even go off of at this point.

You should realize that not everyone here lives in a country where you can't make less than 10K a year..... I'm the world's best in my field and I don't make that much. I spent most of my adult life with half that income despite the value of my work. So.. be more humble.

cost of living can be very different even within the same country, let alone between different countries, so comparing salaries between different regions is largely like comparing apples to oranges.

Very true, these differences can be notable. My sister lives in another country about 80km from here in a bigger apartment than mine that's much closer to the city centre. Her rent is a bit over half of mine, which is expensive there, whereas mine is fairly reasonably priced. The standard of living is quite similar, yet the people there consider anyone from here rich because we tend to go there to buy cheap alcohol.

Regarding the OP, most students here don't make even 10,000 a year because of the socialist nature of the country, you can manage without even working. The students who work are those who either want to save or desire a higher standard of living. There are other countries like this as well, whereas in some young people really have to find a job if their parents don't have the sufficient funds. Thus the question should be either narrowed down to workers in certain countries or alternatively to workers and setting the options to for example "below the national average", "around the national average" and "above the national average".

What? 90000? There's no way that can be right!
When I worked in Africa it much more than that. If you earn only 90 K$ you were considered as a looser.
There are some kind of job which pay very well without that much skills. In Oil and gas for instance.

But on this forum, I'm not sure this kind of poll is relevant as, living with 10.000 USD in France,USA,India or Dubai is absolutly not the same kind of life..

I dont think finland is a valid comparison. Its fairly easy to earn money in finland as a student. And quite a lot more than 10k a year. Its just that you can survive without earning anything as a student.

I don't think I know a single student who'd earn more than 10,000 a year. Most people having a part-time job seem to earn few hundreds a month, depending on the case and the rest decide to survive without earning anything. People in my school generally come from wealthy families though so they have their parents pay for their living.

It might be different after the first years of university/whatever though. I wouldn't know, not many of those I interact with is quite there yet :D

You do. :crazy:

I meant uni student though, not HS.
I know uni students too (normal people of my age), basically none work much I think. Out of those who are going to uni this year most will just get a loan / live off their parents / live off the social system as well. Might be that I only know weird people though.

Wow, I guess it is completely different. Where I live in the USA there is not a student I don't know who doesn't work a full time or part time job on top of the university work they are doing.

@zzbrandon I think the original "data" for that ludicrous salary chart was published in US dollars (it was in Time Magazine I believe). Obviously even within the US, the salaries range by location; however, not so drastically for the exact same kind of work with the exact same number of years of experience (maybe a $10,000 give or take). Housing, at least in the US does not seem to really coincide well with salary. Where I live, housing has generally risen while the salaries have not kept up. I don't think your poll is going to be extremely scientific on an international website.

Hard to say. I anticipate making 40k this year, but I'm way behind because the winter was brutal. Might end up being 30k. Still, for a single 22 year old with a disability that's not bad.

Exactly, here you can survive without doing anything so it really depends on the country. That's why I think the poll itself is not a valid way of collecting data since everything is relative.

This year, my income will be low. There's no denying it. I'm kind of like a traveling student at the moment so I accept that things might be a little tight for a year or so. Even still, I'm happy with my quality of life.

If I take a guess - I'll be in the lowest bracket this year. I should be in the highest bracket though, but I want to do that on my terms. The thing is, it's quite easy to earn a decent wage if you take jobs on offer and work a regular working week etc. etc. I know myself though, I'll just get bored and depressed....been there, done that. I aspire higher than just earning money.....though it certainly is nice.
