    I'm not a conformist, but also not a non-conformist. I just do whatever I want. I don't like extreme conformist and I don't like extreme non-conformists either. They're both so dogmatic that ist's just sad.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Yes, that's definitely true.

    And if the path of least resistance is more efficient in going the direction you want to go anyway, then why not take it? That's how I see conformity sometimes. It can make life a little easier and isn't always some compromise on my individual identity.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Well spotted, Xander. Athough, to be fair, Blue and and a few others spotted "something was wrong" earlier.
