***The greatest number One challenge for me in my life is/was figuring out how to spend my time doing something that accomplishes all of the following in one single job/occupation:

Doing something I enjoy and have interest in.
Doing something I believe in (serves a cause for greater good).
Doing something I can either easily acquire or already have practical skills, ability, education, and intelligence to do in real life.
Doing something that will always have a strong market and demand for.
Doing something that has a realistic career path for me to follow in real time.
Doing something that I am proud to say I can do and do do and feel good about.
Doing something I can get paid well for.

> While the untimate challenge for a 4/5 might be how to remain totally true to oneself without cutting oneself off from the rest of humanity (I'm guessing that isolating oneself is the biggest danger for the 4/5), I've been seeing a crystal-clear vision of the 4/3 challenge -- how to be true to oneself and still be a "winner" without letting others start controlling our ideas of what a "winner" is. It's a battle that goes on constantly in my mind. Any ideas from 4s, either wing?
