How can an ENTP prove themselves to their father? | CS Joseph Responds
CS Joseph responds to the Acolyte question how can an ENTP prove themselves to their father?
Welcome to the CS Joseph podcast. I’m your host CS Joseph, and we are doing acolyte questions today. And today’s questions a little bit interesting comes from a 22 year old ENTP asking for basically career advice or kind of life advice about the direction that he should be going. The question that you asked is a very informative wall of text related question.
So I’m just going to try to summarize it here for the benefit of the audience. But basically, what he’s asking is, is that, should I continue to go to college to make my dad happy? Or should I do something that I actually love, etcetera. And the reason why is because this Fe child is feeling guilty right now about, you know, potentially that his dad down his dad’s funding, his college education, his dad also owns a business basically, and wants that business wants him to eventually took over that business one day. And as near as I can tell, you know, based on, you know, the, the question itself, I really don’t think that his dad is actually trying to put him into college, because he actually cares about a college education, I don’t think his dad cares, I think, with his dad, you know, being an E and TJ, because he did share his type, I really actually think that the INTJ father is looking for something from his EMTP Son, that He may have doubts about.
And usually, like, When Ian TJs do this in life, I’ve noticed something that almost always comes down to one particular thing. Work ethic. And I think as the INTJ father is trying to get his son to prove to him what that that he actually has a work ethic. So that is the INTJ father would trust him, and potentially taking over the business or being involved in the family business at one point in time.
And I think that it would be fair to assume that is the INTJ father is wanting to go get a college education, so that you can prove to him over a serious amount of time that he actually, you know, has the work ethic to do it. So I don’t think this question really is actually about, you know, should I just do something that I love? Or should I go to college to make my dad happy? I really don’t think it’s about that I really actually think it’s about developing one’s own work ethic. Because like, for example, if this guy went up to his dad, and just straight up asked him like, Okay, are you actually sending me to college? Because you care about a college education? Or are you actually just trying to get me to prove work ethic to you? And if so, I’d rather not feel guilty, or feel bad about myself going to college, potentially wasting your money and wasting my time there? How about not having a risk of waste, and you just tell me what other ways, especially things that don’t cost as much time and money that would prove to you that I actually have a capable work ethic, et cetera. And that’s the thing, it’s so hard to like, prove to se child very hard.
It’s very hard to prove to se child that there is a a work ethic. Oh, I don’t know why Siri does decide to do that. You’ll need to be online. No, shut up.
Go away. Apparently, like Siri likes to bother me on every single one of my advices or devices, good times. So yeah. I really think this is a conversation about how his NTP son can prove to him that he has great work ethic and there are a lot of different ways to do that.
I would actually recommend going through like some kind of entrepreneurship training for this intp and to start that entrepreneurship training. So here’s some recommendations. Because like NTPs can have amazing work ethic. They absolutely can.
They can outwork everybody else. Literally, no one can outwork an ESTP. It is actually like they can out effort and outwork everyone. They really can’t with SI aspirational.
They really can’t. The thing is, though, is that why? Why are they working hard? What’s the point? You see what I’m saying? That’s what needs to matter to the EMTP. But they’re really not going to do that and going and getting a college education, honestly, like his dad needs to understand that he’s setting up his son for failure. Making your son go through college education, when that ti parents would be like and that pragmatism would be like, this is a waste of time.
So his ended up going to be wasting his time there. He’s out also be wasting his dad’s money, he’s eventually likely going to drop out just like Steve Jobs the EMTP did. And his dad’s further going to judge him for about lacking work ethic when the reality is his dad actually technically set him up for failure going for that college education. So here’s how to not set him up for failure.
Okay? Go read the entrepreneurship 15 at CS Joseph dot life forge slash reading every intp potential entrepreneur should do this, because any intp should really be working for themselves, just like Benjamin Franklin did, for example, who was an entrepreneur on his own right? Go figure that out, go figure out how business is actually done. And those books will teach you how business is done today, talks a lot about sales, marketing, customer service, how to deal with employees, specific goals, etc. You just got to find that one thing that you like to do and do it with all your mind, right? That’s like even biblical, you know what I’m saying? I mean, surely, if you want to turn a business out of, you know, World of Warcraft, you can, or your love of Warhammer 40k, you can, it doesn’t matter, it really doesn’t matter. So yeah, in answering his original question, technically, yes, it is more important to do what you love.
But again, the reason this is happening is because of your father’s desire to understand if you as an ENTP, with SI inferior, because you look weak, because you have si inferior, you look lazy, because you have si inferior, you look like you have no work ethic, you have to prove that you have work ethic, and honestly, like I just personally, I just ignore your dad, not go to college education, go start your own business based on the books and the entrepreneurship. 15. And by the way, that traction book in that list, it says entrepreneurship 16, ignore that it’s bullshit, I hate that book, it’s gonna be taken down. But read the rest.
And also, when you get to launch, which is like book five in the list, make sure you get second edition, first edition, because it’s in that’s also the most important book in the entire thing. But prove to your dad that you can actually run a business and actually make a profit. And that’s how you prove work ethic and then he’ll cut you in on the business that’s it’s really not that hard to do that, besides, you’re young, you’re 22 you should be doing that. Anyway, like I became inspired to do this business because I read Gary Vaynerchuk book, crush it one day, who was recommended to me by some by one of my friends.
And it’s very inspiring. And now I’m here now I did this. And now I have an audience. Now we have a business now we’re, we’re we have software, which is fantastic.
And it’s just getting better and better. So folks, understand, understand what that’s all about. Understand, like, it really comes down to proving that work ethic. And if this guy can prove work ethic to his dad, by making his own business, great, that’ll solve the problem, he’d be a lot happier anyway.
And he wants to deal with the lifelong guilt to the fact that he screwed his dad out of money because he couldn’t do because his dad set him up for failure by asking him to go get a college education, which is an absolute waste of time. You know, like, send your daughters to school, don’t send your sons to school. Come on. My seriously, like, college education is for women.
Now, let’s be honest, it’s really just for women. I mean, there’s so many ways that that show that that’s true. So like, just just don’t go get your own skills and be your own person and don’t like Follow the bouncing ball, live your own life. Your dad is just setting you up for failure.
Don’t listen to him, and just prove work ethic. If you just prove work ethic, everything will be fine. And you won’t have to worry about it anymore. And then he’ll get off your back and they’ll cut you into the business and then you’re good.
And then that way you’ve saved yourself a lot of lifelong debt and guilt, you know, as a result of that horrible situation. So anyway, I think that answers that question.
