    I went into graphic design and all I do is crop JPEGs all day, occasionally I'll crop an svg. The pictures are nice.

      you never feel like someone is going to show up and expose you for not having any real skills?
      also the hardest part seems to be getting into a gig like this, making it seem like you can do anything, only to have 1 or 2 bullet points out of 10 of a job description be your actual work, having to prove you can do them all the same

        I did when I was younger but then I stopped caring. I used to put in effort and do good work but it got me nowhere and I get paid the same to half ass it. I get satisfaction elsewhere, even from making memes.

          i suppose im not seeking any fulfillment from my work, just something i can do for a long period of time without dreading showing up every day, while earning enough to live comfortably.

          INTP's make great neets

          Even though I'm an INTP who hates interracting with people I forced myself into being a software sales engineer due to its high pay. Im banking enough where in a few more years I'll be able to retire as a neet in my late 30s.
          Careers generally are bullshit. Just get the highest paying thing you can and force yourself through it so you can achieve your true destiny as a neet. Being a neet is the only acceptable final outcome

          i think this is true, the happiest times in my life were during neetdom, but also the most directionless. my career fantasy is 100% remote doing 3-4 hours of work a week and doing my own thing with the rest of the time. i am almost doing this now, working 2 days remote a week and doing basically all my work on the non remote days, going to the gym and reading on my remote days. the only problem is i make almost nothing. i need to move to the US and get a comfy hybrid or remote job, just need to trick the right person/people

    You have to be good and innovative to make something profitable. And paying attention to interesting things is the lowest level of conscious thought you have, figure out what you can pay attention to even though you think it's boring.

      i find it pretty easy to focus on organizing data in spreadsheets like at my current job, which is boring to most people but is satisfying to me. i’m pretty low in ability to focus on something i don’t care about, even given incentives. i’ve put off for weeks tasks that managers asked me to do, simply because i could get away with it and was never pressed to do it.
      for background im working a token foreigner desk job in japan, sometimes going on business trips to interpret but mostly doing busywork in the office. once i move back to the US i need to decide what i’ll be doing long term

      But if you have to wage, it can be literally anything that takes as little time and effort so you can focus on your true interests. For me, it's been career government jobs. I don't even know what career category I would fall under now because I do so little actual work.

        >anything that takes as little time and effort
        I have worked at the same small business for 20 years. Sometimes I perform large changes and things get significantly better but mostly I do nothing. Due to the length of my tenure I know how all the systems work and interact. When get get new staff I have the unenviable job of training them, but beyond that it is very cruisy. idk if small business is still a good thing to get into, but there was some initial work on my part but it was mostly mindless - because they were flexible I could do extra things that interested me but noone else cared about.

        INTPs are good at anything that requires getting lost in research and playing detective. Find jobs that fit that description in anyway.

    I got this intp classification too.

    My memory is shit, I feel dumb as fuck and my carrer was offered to me.
    I started at a low post at an crop sprayers shop, those that sell the huge machines that spray poison over our foods. My entry was at the depot, keeping the parts depot
    I did something right and got lucky. Now I am working as the administrator. Have my own room and air conditioning... Its pretty nice but I feel so weird there because deep inside I know I am super retard. People say I am smart as fuck, but its just an ilusion.. people say that because I did some nice thigs with programming language and know a bunch of shit I memorized from discovery channel

    To me this carrer thing is a mistery... You just need to start I guess
    And this utopic vision of a happy carrer with lots of self satisfaction is just not true
    You need to solve problens every fucking day and over all that you also need to push your body or else you will have zero energy to do the things you like during your free time

    It is very hard to come from a "sleep until mid day" reality to a waggie live and also, for me at leats, it is hard to deal with people. My trick is to go full retard and trow jokes everytime I can. It is working, people seens to like me... I dont mind solving complex problens, but human relationships drain me so much
    I can see too much emulation and fake shit
    Is hard

        Media researcher. You basically do all the hard work for a newsstory, crunch numbers, provide facts, details, find sources and hand it over in bulk to some stacy journo who writes the story (and thats a good thing). If you're good with excel, where to find and extract data and understanding what data is good for a story, you're very attractive candidate.

      Do you recognize a difference between attention being inward-turned or outward-turned? Do you recognize a difference between thinking and feeling? One man's attention is primarily outward-turned and directed toward physical sensations - another man's attention is primarily inward-turned and directed toward thoughts. Do you not see any value in having a shorthand way of describing the various attentional postures people adopt?

        well said. there are people who are open and expansive while others are the opposite, some give high emphasis to past experiences, others prefer living in the present, some live more in their own imagination, some care about the social mood while others don't and are spontaneous etc

    anyways, i dont know what the fuck else id be doing at this moment that pays as much as i get now, if anyone has any ideas thatd be great but there really arent any as we all know since, "watching youtube lockpicking videos" doesnt make any money. my retirement plan was winning the powerball , but that didnt work out

    I am a scorpio. I'm pretty sure than means I am meant to lead. Makes sense given the way the world is these days. Normies can't understand the thrill of pinning the weasel. Night spent chasing an over amphetamined Caroline around the bean bag forts. Her squealing and gibbering, pouring sweat and on the verge of seizing. Your friends build up an intoxicating, delerious state with Talmudic chantings at the sidelines, hitting the Caroline-toy with brooms if she tries to escape. Sam would be giggling and laughing as the waves of methamphetamine pleasure seem to harmonize with the droning herbrew verses. He runs through the bean bag maze fat and portly, with his viagra powered penis a divining rod for the weasel. Sweat gushing down his face around his unfocused eyes he laughs and chortles until he gasps "Found you!". The Mathsweasel screeches defensively but Wankman Bankman is upon her in seconds. His penis thrusting blindly into her flank, leg, stomach and ribs unconcerned about anything but the motion. Eventually serendepity finds her mouth and the Cocktube Rodent is placated, suckling contently on Bankman's dehydrated dick. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1vAqaUwLg7g

        I am happy for you but that situation will require sacrifice on your part. Your decision should be based on money not interest. Your interests will have to be relegated to those few hours you will have to yourself. Maybe try a government job as they employ a number of econ people at places like the CBO.

    I'm an INTP and I'm a retail pharmacist. I was painfully shy in school, smart but lazy, always put in the least amount of effort required to get by. You learn to tolerate and even enjoy the forced social contact, and to treat the people problems that spring up as little puzzles to solve. Retail is an awful grind but with so many people fleeing since covid, you have a lot of options and opportunity. I make 140k, am 27 and nearly debt free. I save 2.5k/ month into my 401k and net about 3k in cash savings monthly. Ten years from now I hope to be financially stable enough to drop to part time and spend more time doing other things. Hope this helps someone

      Don’t become an employee, you will go under. Become a specialist freelancer and only work with people who are really „into you“. You shouldn’t have too many problems coming up with a system or routine that creates value for other people (as an INTP), you just need to learn to either make advertising for yourself or how to acquire clients and customers elsewhere.

      Ideally choose something that you can create once and then sell to multiple people, like course, a manual
