I need to find the perfect job for me...

I'm a creative/analytical individual who thrives in an environment where I can tweak and testdrive many variables/things/ideas/etc in a creative way and put them to use for profit/critique/judgement/etc.
I have all the time in the world to figure this out, but I want to get it right and I want to find a career I will love the rest of my life.

I'm intensely invent/analytical, but analysis itself does not satisfy me.
I'm highly creative, creating things satisfies me, but I'm not the kind that could be a great painter or writer or musician, I don't think...
I'm an amazing writer, I could probably be a very successful novelist if I could think of plots, and was better at developing larger number of characters. (I'm not just saying I'm a good writer like lots of the trash writers out there, I actually am, promise).
I am very visually oriented.
I am extremely smart.
I have a very keen aesthetic eye.
I am competitive.
I like traveling.
I like trying new things.
I like thinking of new ways things could be done.
I like being around people, but appreciate the occasional alone time.
I like reading, but I never read for some reason.
I like the outdoors.
I like being in foreign places.
I like teaching others.
I like the idea of compensation based on merit.
I'm probably too good at arguing....
I thrive in a setting where I can experiment with many variables in a creative way, test drive them, and put them to use.
Areas that interest me right now writing novels, equities/futures trading, film editing, architecture, semipro poker, teaching English overseas, consulting, editor/publisher, and i guess that last thing I would choose to be is a touring musician, but I hate the band I'm in.
Also, if it matters, I like all people have the secret desire to be a pirate or spy. HAHAHA
I just turned 23, I have a degree in Economics from a top 40 school. Grad school isn't out of the question, but being a lawyer does not interest me.
