Read some books about MBTI and Enneagram and do the work.
Imagine me asking about Wi-fi net works and saying that I
own a computer. Well, that is a start, and I might have to
focus on where to go next. C++ might be a starting point, if
I wanted to progress into code development and networks.
Talking to a salesman might be the answer if I just needed to
buy a card or a hub. Artisans are people who ....? Use those
strengths to advance yourself. The Enneagram will help you
learn "why" (motivation.) Focus. There are no easy answers.
Each of us decides for ourselves about relevance. Perhaps, I
misunderstand the basis of your question. Are you asking about:
success, satisfaction, security, entrepreneurship, etc? One of those
might be subsumed in the question about ISTP occupations and E-type.
The question might be, "What will make me ------?" Perhaps, _______
is the first item to address (happy, rich, successful, secure, connected,
comfortable, etc.) I cannot contribute anything else other than to
encourage your exploration. Someone else might be able to offer
personal insight or testimony. Except for higher level IT, tech jobs
are moving to India and Russia, IMO. Unless Cal-Tech, M.I.T. or the
like are in your future, you might have to employ a niche strategy
in your local area. I really advocate some career counseling and then
personal networking. Get plugged into the area(s) of your strengths.
Microsoft gets 40,000 job applications per month! Oracle probably gets
a similar number. That's just for the hum-drum jobs. Good luck.
