Any big picture/conceptual, rather than analytical, INTJs out there? Looking for career ideas

Don't listen to u/thrown773737... Your degree does not define what you can pursue in life unless you let it. Granted, if you do want to get into something like investment banking it would definitely be easier with relevant academic degrees. In your current position you'd have to start on the ground floor and work your way up, which can take quite a bit of time and effort (unless you know the right people or are willing to have sex with the right people, no joke, these two factors trump experience/knowledge almost always).

Take me for example: I currently work as a software developer. In the past I've served as lead software developer on a major, multi-million dollar government contract. Most people I work with assume that I have at least an M.S. in computer science. Jokes on them though, because I never took a single computer science course in my entire academic career. I double majored in earth sciences and political science in college and for my M.S. I studied the mechanics of landslides and debris flows. But go figure, it's pretty hard to find a job in the field of landscape degradation! I was aware of this in school and I always had a personal interest in computers, so I picked up a few books on Python programming and worked through them. After that I moved onto JavaScript, SQL, Java, C, etc. I started contributing to open-source software projects for fun. Halfway through my M.S. I was already working as a programmer (part-time) for the university and making some pretty good money. The rest is history.

The point I'm trying to drive across with my story, is that if you have drive, patience and average (or above average) intelligence, you can accomplish pretty much anything. You want to work on big picture investment banking projects? Maybe start by building your own stock portfolio. Demonstrate that you understand how markets work and that you can make money grow. Present that to a hiring manager and it'd be difficult to distinguish you, with real-world experience, from some guy whose only major qualification is a piece of paper that says 'MBA' on it.

Also, u/thrown773737 - One of the best software developers I know is self-taught and has a degree in Philosophy.
