Tree service groundman. Moving brush and wood to the chipper all day. Very physical work, and easy to find a job because very few people want to do it.

What about a brick masons helper hauling bricks? That could develop into a respectable career.

Adderall eliminated my anxiety too. I've only been taking it for a few months for ADHD.

Even though it works, and is legal I'm switching to strattera to avoid testing positive on drug tests.

I don't have a biology degree, but am an INTP. And INTP's are big picture thinking information whore creative problem solvers. Whatever you do it better be mentally stimulating or you will get bored. And boredom is career death to INTP's. I'll bet you'd love research, but pull your hair out if you h...

The certificate will likely help you get a job. I took several community college landscape classes and they were full of people that worked in the field. The classes forced me to learn things I probably wouldn't have learned on the job like scientific names and characteristics of plants, and pestici...

Hmm, interesting. Does anyone disagree with me as to what makes NTs successful, or have any other traits to add? Luck, drive, and technical skills. Both of those guys were skilled programmers who made someone elses idea better. They are both ruthless businessmen that play to win. They both had the ...

I'm no expert. But it seems like a risky time to invest in government bonds. Given high unemployment, decreasing property values, and already stupid high federal government debt. Where's the money going to come from to pay back?

Sounds like you have a good thing going. 8) Plenty of office workers work long hours and get divorced too. Everybody dies. Like the others said if you save as much money as you can and you'll have options later.

My AS 9 year old has a retainer to keep him from sucking his thumb. After he got the retainer It still took many reminders to get him to stop. The orthodontist said he was going to deform the roof of his mouth if he didn't quit. He also bites the collar and cuffs of his shirts.

Autonomous blue collar. I like having skills that can be sold to the highest paying employer. Or, have the option of taking on side jobs, or going into business. Trying to work as part of a team messes up my thought processes trying to predict what others are going to do. I get more done at higher q...
