DOC: Hey, come on in.
LRE: Well, alrighty then.
DOC: I was thinking we could take a personality test today.
DOC: Sorry… you. YOU could take one.
LRE: Is it the Myers-Briggs thing-a-ma-jigs?
DOC: Cute, that rhymed. Yes, it is. Well, almost. It’s not a thing-a-ma-jiggy.
DOC: It’s the Myers-Briggs TYPE INDICATOR.
LRE: Gotcha. Been there. Done that.
DOC: Oh. Fine. Ruin my fun.
LRE: Oh come on. Don’t get so down. We could analyze my dreams.
DOC: You remember them?
LRE: Yeah; one of last night’s was really weird, but apparently I was making out with the doorman of the building that I lived in in New York although he only made $22 thousand a year and I made over $400 thousand as a fancy lawyer.
DOC: Um, no. Let’s NOT try to analyze that one.
LRE: Fine. Well, when I took that test last, it told me I was an ENFP.
LRE: Yeah, that. More extraverted than introverted.
DOC: You’ve certainly changed from the little girl in first grade who was embarrassed to open the classroom door because you were late coming in from lunch recess.
LRE: True. But as an extravert, apparently, I don’t fit in the IT world.
DOC: Imagine that.
LRE: Right. So the other ones mean that I’m more interesting in intuition than sensing, slightly value feeling over thinking, and lean towards perception rather than judgment.
DOC: Um, so is there a brief summary of what that really means?
LRE: Brief, not so much. There were a couple of pages of description of what that meant, but watch me summarize. For me, at least according to Mister Myers-Briggs, life is a creative adventure full of exciting possibilities. Apparently, I hate routine, schedules, and avoid structure. Mostly, that occurs in the mornings when the alarm goes off. There’s tons more, but that’s enough for now.
DOC: Gotcha. And what type of personality does your blog have?
LRE: Well, that’s INTERESTING that you should ask, because I went to Typealyzer’s website to find out and my blog is ESFP.
DOC: And what’s that mean?
LRE: My blog is entertaining and friendly (good job, blog), especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and preferring to fill its surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells.
DOC: I didn’t know blogs could smell sweetly.
LRE: Apparently, they can. Okay, my blog likes to live in the present moment and doesn’t like to plan ahead.
DOC: Well that doesn’t work because you plan ahead for the rest of your blog life having your structured daily entries.
LRE: Turns out, I CAN handle structure. Back to my blog… it’s always in risk of exhausting itself.
DOC: Poor blog.
LRE: It also enjoys work that makes it able to help people in a concrete and visible way.
DOC: Maybe your blog should help out with more service projects.
LRE: Maybe. It tries to avoid conflicts and rarely initiates confrontations.
DOC: I don’t think Typealyzer read your political entries.
LRE: Perhaps. But there you go. My blog is a “performer.” Oh, and it’s rather gender neutral, according to Gender Analyzer, but Kaakun’s blog was rather womanly.
LRE: And last, there’s the Literature Expert where most of my writing seems to match up with Frank Baum.
DOC: I thought you wanted to be the next Dave Barry.
LRE: I know. That website CRUSHED all of my hopes and dreams.
Political Link of the Day: Seriously, internet… if you NEVER click on ANY of my other political links of the day in the past, click on THIS one because it’ll knock some sense into you AND you’ll laugh at the same time: Everything’s Amazing and Getting Better All the Time, But Nobody’s Happy
