Hey, guys! So... it's been a while since I've last posted, huh? Oh well, it doesn't matter, I post so infrequently most people don't remember me anyways, haha. Anyways! On to the point of the thread; what careers would an INTP enjoy? The title says it all, really.

Y'see, I don't want to specify my age, but I will say that I am at an age where what career I want to pursue is something I should seriously think about. For the longest time I've wanted to be an engineer of some sorts, and with the rise of mechatronics, I wanted to be a mechatronics/robotics engineer (I have a knack for programming/computers, as well as some robotics). But with that said, I've also been thinking about aiming to be a university professor. I could use that as a means of research, which I would love to do. But alas, I can already hear some pointing out that as a professor, I would have to well, profess. Teach. But I wouldn't mind that, though. When it comes to topics I'm passionate about I will gladly talk for hours on end about it to help teach whoever's interested.

So yeah, what do you think are some great careers for INTPs? What do you think of my current ideas? Is there something that I should look out for in both of the careers I suggested that might lead to dissatisfaction? (thanks in advance for anyone who responds to this!)

Yep you should do that, and remain open to changing your preferences.

Most STEM fields appeal to us. I'd guess some do well in legal careers.
Something I don't see mentioned often in "careers for INTPs" threads is private investigator. You don't need ex LE experience and you might find the work itself interesting.
