What job would be good for me?

Yay more crowd sourcing! Greetings Yahoo Answers group. I have a very general question. The reason I ask this is because I am not sure what type of job I am even looking for. I am a problem solver. If someone asks me a question, nine times out of ten I can come up with a viable solution to their problem, or failing that a way to discover a viable solution. I'm not referring to technical knowledge, I'm referring to abstract knowledge. "What's wrong with my car?" I would not be able to answer that question, but I could use information gathering skills to determine a short list of possible issues, and a longer list of ways to fix it. Take it to a shop, give them DIY solutions, direct them to a similar knowledgeable person who could fix the issue. "Why can't I find a job?" I won't be able to tell them where to get a job, but I could tell them why their area is bad for their job field, I could tell them about minimum educational requirements they do not have and direct them to 30 different locations to gain it, I could inform them of alternate jobs or methods to apply their knowledge. That being said you would think I could solve my own problem. Well, here i am doing just that :) I'm using an open source tool to obtain a menagerie of responses and bits of information to develop and answer to a question that I have. Now anyone can do this, but the problem is that most people don't know what they don't know. An unknown unknown if you will. I can discover unknown unknowns and make them known to develop the thought cycle that leads to a solution. Thinking outside of the box, doing research, turning raw information into an informative product is my area of expertise. I know that's very vague, and there in lies my problem. I have a vast wealth of knowledge on any number of topics, but no specific knowledge in any one field. Jack of all trades I guess you could say. A bit if history to help with the answer to the question. I absorb information sort of through my skin (just wait for it). I excelled in high school with little to know study, all in class work was more than enough for me to be able to pass (with almost perfect marks) any exam in relation to the topic. I joined the military as an Intelligence Specialist (don't be impressed, it's not impressive) which is a glorified this or that. In my specific field, I was a glorified critical thinker. Really it was as simple as that. I was given a question, and given and amount of time to develop a large amount of information on the topic, some information of future plans in reference to the information (aka predicting the future based upon trend analysis), and be able to present the information in an "entertaining" and informative manner in such a way that the importance of the data and implications of the data will be understood by the target audience. I can make anyone, understand anything. No matter how complicated, I can make a child understand it. The only drawback that I can think of tha tI have (that would limit me in many fields) is a short attnetion span. I can churn out a novel in a conversation, but don't have the motivation to put a pen to the page or clack away at a keyboard to actually write the book. If the topic... grabs at me in a certain way, I am able to (obsessively?) stick with it until it has been exhausted or resolved. That's all I can think of that's relevent. Feel free to ask question to narrow down the scope of your answers. Much appreciated to those who take the time! VR, Jacob Talley
