I have an ENTP partner. He's a brilliant salesman. Very gifted talker. Just curious as to what ENTPs find are fulfilling careers?

If he is a gifted talker, he probably qualifies for multiple jobs.

I say an auctioneer, lawyer, consultant, marketer, and anything that has to do with interaction with people.

There's a lot of careers that an ENTP can potentially find fulfilling. Judging by the manner in which I shifted from one career idea to another, I could find myself changing careers all the time, not out of dissatisfaction but merely due to the pleasure of interacting with others, and communicating thoughts and ideas to the environment.

I'll add to Lance's list, and suggest public relations, management, journalist, property developer/manager, and even stuff like running restaurants.

This guy speaks the truth. ENTPs have a large amount of jobs to choose from ... and we normally go through them all. The best place for a ENTP is where their are challenges. We love challenges, weather they be Logical or Physical.

I work in high-end real estate. It is a very people-oriented job that requires high communication skills and the swift engendering of confidence in oneself to strangers. I perceive building this confidence while maintaining absolute objectivity and honesty a worthy challenge. My career also allows me flexibility in my schedule and affords me to be my own boss, which is very important to me.

With that said, I grow weary of doing the same thing year in, year out. My hope is to be able to maintain my current career while making room within my schedule to accommodate different future enterprises.

Among other ideas, future "co-career" ideas for me include writing (both prose/narrative and philosophical in nature), outdoor adventure coordinator/guide, and some heretofore undefined job pertaining to analysis of business's directives and public perception (essentially an advertising-related job).

I am often restless. Prior to the job I hold now (and have held for ten years), I had many different jobs.

I always thought we would make good teachers since we can deal with people and have enough logic to help others.

Hehe, Wolfish ENTP and wolf cannot be a teacher.... I can be an advisor, or lecturer... but I tend to dislike people that can't keep up with me (another ENTP flaw.... "When in groups ENTPs often think the people they are working with are moving to slow")

Hmm... Some very different answers! Definitely pause for consideration, I can see him as a teacher and as a real estate salesman.

I sometimes wonder whether he would be a great inventor, or the ideas man for an inventor... I say this because the practical application of his ideas is rarely attempted or realised, he comes up with some great inventions that I think would actually work. He's very enterprising, always looking for a new idea, new opportunity, but rarely acting on it until he can connvince someone else of his idea and they want in and make all the moves for him. He also finds self-motivation difficult. Could you work just as solidly if you weren't reporting to a boss?

Well, as far as I know you guys, you'd make really fun teachers, but I don't know if you'd actually teach that much.

Are there any INTP's ever found in the sale's jobs you've worked? or INTJ's?

I was at a Mcdonald's one time eating breakfast and studying math. A man came over and spoke to me who I think was an ENTP. He told me he was an engineer and that the one thing he hated when he started out was working a desk job. He found his way into a job where he traveled, meeting new people, solving their structural engineering problems. I think it would be a fascinating career to flit from place to place and leave an inventive mark on the environment while getting to know the locals.

ehhh I'm thinking about psychology or teaching the subject...either way I feel like having to choose a career is coming on way too fast. I just don't want to be stuck in a job and end up hating it. But this thread has helped...not much...

here...it just made me more confused about what to do.
