    Question 1. - No.

    Question 2. - It's a good start.

    That's the typical stereotype for Gamma.

    That seems to describe what an ISTp would prefer, however - money and no job.
    It implies that all your needs are met and there's nothing you 'have to do'. I'm sure a lot of people would like that.

    But, I don't think I could have money and no job. I have to work and do things otherwise I don't feel well.

    Could be the creepy subconscious fight I'm possibly involved with against boredom, but this sounds like a woeful existence. What would I do with all that time? I'd rather have an interesting job, and even one that only pays moderately, than have lots of money and nothing to do.

    These are my sentiments when I have no job and a parent who spoils me, though. You don't know what you have until it's gone.

    Yeah I really think this is largely a temperament thing. I like not having to work, but then I'm dependent on my husband having a job so it isn't true freedom. He dreams of not having a job - of like winning the lottery and being able to hang out and work on cars all day if he wants.

    I'd want to get money without a job, and then use that money to create my own business.

    If I had that much money I'd hire thugs to trash archon's business before it got off the ground. Then I'd invest in some healthcare for my UFC fighting career.

    And Si, remember that SLI-IEE cartoon you posted earlier? I noticed the main theme of it was, "how to spend all the boring time the summer holidays brings up?".

    Not delta, but I'd love to have money and no job. I could just spend all my day hinking, researching new things, making olive oil and wine, skiing, etc. etc. etc.

    I don't want to have a job for the sake of income, its because what I like doing seems to be considered "work" by most people.


    My life away from organizing, administrating, or helping people to "do things" and "get things done" would be totally boring to me.

    My business was a plot of land dedicated to LARPing and Paintball, filled with bunkers, villages, caves, trees, trenches, and ruins.

    My customers would basically kick your thugs' asses or at least boffer them up real rough.

    That's actually a badass idea! However, I'm not sure your crew could beat up my crew.

    That's like some kind of new Village People.

    with you i must ask, "what do you mean by roleplaying?"

    Of the casual and non sexual entertainment variety... I also am proud of it!

    I could never not work. I've been on vacation a week and I'm loosing my mind. Money never really mattered to me so long as I am capable of surviving.

    My mom's IEE. She'd NEVER stop working. She'd probably go back to acting (she's been in TV on the production/hosting side for a while). But no, if she had all the money in the universe she'd keep working at something.

    I couldn't really deal with no job either. I need to be busy in order to get stuff done.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Money is good because it gives freedom do do something that won't necessarily make money, like knitting socks for friends or baking for family or running in circles.
