I'm noticing that a lot of xNTJ's go into engineering as a career field

The hard sciences bore me to tears. The soft are fun though as long as I don't have to get emotionally involved - contradiction much? I know.

5w6 is usually attracted to the hard sciences, and 5w4 is often attracted to the softer ones.

I was a sociology major. : P

I've noticed that 7 w 6 are also quite attracted to soft sciences and vice versa.

I'm an ENTP. Was into engineering. Started to lose my marbles because it's so slow from start to finish. It's also very sensing oriented. Intuition can help you make great leaps, but everyone wants it to be supported with numbers.

I love science, no matter what. Love both hard and soft. And an easier delineation between hard and soft sciences for me is
hard=quantitative
soft=qualitative

Yeehaw!

I'm not interested in engineering, but I can see why many NTs are. I love and am informed by both the social and natural sciences, though my speciality is philosophy, which I would say exists in some limbo that is not exactly a humanity or a science.

I do like home repair and am a "car guy," so maybe that's how I channel my latent engineering impulse.

Yeahhh. I realized I am much happier being a home mechanic than a mechanical engineering. Haha :D
