Career Inventory Test Results

What's funny about my ever-changing personality type is that I always score EN as the first part of any Myers-Briggs typology, but depending on the test or the day or my mood (lol), I am an ENFP, ENFJ or and ENTJ, as above. The older I get, the more I think I am somewhat more thinking/judging than perceiving. I'm certainly not the classic ENFP who is irresponsible, pro-tattoo and unable to plan or follow through:
outgoing, social, disorganized, easily talked into doing silly things, spontaneous, wild and crazy, acts without thinking, good at getting people to have fun, pleasure seeking, irresponsible, physically affectionate, risk taker, thrill seeker, likely to have or want a tattoo, adventurous, unprepared, attention seeking, hyperactive, irrational, loves crowds, rule breaker, prone to losing things, seductive, easily distracted, open, revealing, comfortable in unfamiliar situations, attracted to strange things, non punctual, likes to stand out, likes to try new things, fun seeker, unconventional, energetic, impulsive, empathetic, dangerous, loving, attachment prone, prone to fantasy
performer, actor, entertainer, songwriter, musician, filmmaker, comedian, radio broadcaster/dj, some job related to theater/drama, poet, music journalist, work in fashion industry, singer, movie producer, playwright, bartender, comic book author, work in television, dancer, artist, record store owner, model, freelance artist, teacher (art, drama, music), writer, painter, massage therapist, costume designer, choreographer, make up artist
data analyst, scientist, researcher, financial advisor, business analyst, govt employee, office manager, mathematician, investment banker, office worker, computer tech, it professional, network engineer, strategist"
I also found a more comprehensive list of Jungian (or Myers-Briggs) personality types, which you can check out once you've filled out a quiz or two on Similarminds.com

How does personality influence your choice of profession? The obvious answer is completely. If you aren't patient enough to sift through hundreds of pages of data, you'll never be a research scientist. Full disclosure: I will never be a research scientist. LOL.
I've been obsessed with personality typing since my late teens. My primary reason for seeking out such information (which some would debate is innacurate and as preposterous as astrology) is romantic compatibility, followed by understanding myself. I was quite lost in my career search in university and resorted in my final semester, while pregnant, to taking a personality-based career choice course.
I had a particularily bad experience when once identified as an ENFP and grouped with those who were supposedly the same, the teacher asked, "Who in this group feels they exhibit the classic irresponsibity of the ENFP type?" to which one of my fellow ENFPers replied while pointing to me, "Well OBVIOUSLY this one, because she's pregnant!"
:( I think she was misdiagnosed in her typing. She was really an ISFB (impolite stupid fucking bitch). LOL. (edited to add: insensitive stupid fucking bitch also works, natch.)
I also found this little exercise online in my 100 Jobs egocentric Google-thyself research last night: The 100 Jobs Exercise.
I completed the first part and it only served to enforce what I already know about my global career goals. My top twelve intuitively-chosen exciting careers are:
1. TV Talk Show Host
3. Professional Actor
4. Fine Artist
5. TV or Film Director
6. Music Composer
7. Fiction Writer
8. Venture Capitalist
9. Event Planner
10. Professional Athlete
12. Business Strategy Consultant
[13. University Professor]
Evidently, I naturally disregarded financial rewards, as indicated in the "Top Ten Reasons Why Aimee Davison is Still a Starving Artist in Her Wildly Entertaining Salad Dayz". I had a very negative vomitous reaction to the choices of homemaker, clerical worker and firefighter.
What are your top careers? And if you are following me, please stop lurking, hand-in-the-pants style and puhleez tell me what type you are in the comments.*
I'll leave you with my answer to question three of the 100 Jobs exercise:
3. Note any Spontaneous Images (or Words or Songs) while participating in this exercise
I rock, I am a host already, awesome, wish I was drunk, hands-in-the-pants and
followed by HOT.
I get off being...
