I lived ~2.5 hours north of Chicago at the time, and this is the first I've heard of it. Wow.

I took this test last year when i went to California for the first time. I got an INTJ, which seemed rather accurate at the time. Now i got INTP, which probably is truer.

Man it has been so long since I've been on Gabbly.

I was just exploring green-development blogs looking at cool stuff (like the city-inside-of-a-building they're trying to build in Russia, or the beer bottle that can be used as a brick to build shit once you're done drinking it) and it linked me.

The blood powered under the skin video cell phone has caught my attention. Leads the way to programmable changing tattoos and other devices? I mean, its a touch activated video phone under the skin with wireless access to bluetooth devices?! Someone please tell me this is a joke, because its just too awesome to be real.

every time i take the myers-briggs type indicator test i end up as an INTP which is apparently the weirdest and rarest one in north america. i am not really surprised by this at all.

also i think you guys should know that any time firefox detects a misspelled word it tries to get me to change it to "star bucks" and it's getting kind of weird and creepy.

A bit late but I am...

Your personality type is ESFJ.
Extraverted (E) 61%    Introverted (I) 39%
Sensing (S) 68%    Intuitive (N) 32%
Feeling (F) 100%    Thinking (T) 0%
Judging (J) 50%    Perceiving (P) 50%

Interesting. I'm well rounded on some things and completely polarized on others.

Not according to this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator#Type_dynamics_and_development

Us INTJ's* are rarer, and the rarest is INFJ.



*I got INTP too one time, but mostly I come up INTJ.

I seem to alternate between INTJ and INTP, but mostly INTP, although the whole thing is a bit pointless. I reckon it would be a lot more accurate if you got one of your closest friends to do it. That way you wouldn't subconsciously change things to what you would like them to be.

Patrick Swayze's got 5 weeks left to spend not possessing Whoopi Goldberg's body. Shut up, that was the Fark headline.

Also, this is why we don't start trash fires.

Edit: It appears I've forgotten this little gem:

"In space men exercise on treadmills. In addition, they can theoretically masturbate too. But they should not forget about condoms or other containers, otherwise drop of sperm will be flying chaotically in the cabin and they will have to collect it."

I lol'd. And then this filthy lie right after it:

"As a matter of fact, humans are not eager to make love in space."

Are you fucking kidding me, that's how I want to lose the v-card.

hey! during my senior year of high school i was one of those annoying phone operators.

for the most part it was a pretty fun job actually. it got to a point where they somehow couldn't fire me because i was the only person who had been there longer than 3 months and knew how to handle difficult situations. i threatened to quit at least three times just so they'd give me a raise and convince me to stay. none of the supervisors really did their jobs properly and as a result about 90% of the time i spent on the phone with customers involved being brutally frank about the quality of the food we served and essentially telling them to spend their money elsewhere. good times!

also, there's a possibility the maintenance workers at my university will be striking this monday, rendering the university closed as there will be no one around to get rid of all this fucking snow.
