    You've been spying on me, right? (Thank God for kitchen timers, is all I have to say about that.)

    Once again I am untypable. Curses! Foiled again! Although, as I said on the other place, I identify most closely with the INFP and INTP descriptions.

    you're welcome.

    i'd love to see the down-sides too, but i think they cover that in a nice, helpful way in the rest of the book.

    i suppose they knew better than to use the crap side to sell to the masses, and instead stroked egos.

    Oh, I gave up trying to type you a LOOOOONG time ago, Ivy. You transcend type.

    yup, for whatever reason, marketers think that the average person wants to read uplifting happy things rather than criticism. Go figure.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    you're so right. a nice mixture of ego stroking and quick answers can sell just about anything.

    -spaced out thinking about things when practical things need to be done (ie, food always got burned)
    I quit trying to cook. The chest freezer is now stocked with things everyone can nuke for themselves.
    -tending not to be great with money (not budgeting, no idea of money in account, overspending on "health food" products etc) ... but all for a good cause, not frivolous things or things for herself, just unwise things
    After years of not spending on myself, now I do
    -couldn't consistently do chores...tried many many schedules, but never stuck to them
    Don't even go there . . .
    -not terribly good expressing emotion
    Yeah, I wish I was more consistently affectionate
    -completely ineffective discipline
    It's not completely ineffective, but it is a good thing I'm not the only parent.
    -overprotective
    -overly trusting in strangers she's just met, while overly anxious about strangers in general
    I'm fairly trusting of people I've known a long time. Other people, not so much.
    -easily stressed by conflict, then becoming completely illogical
    I think am more likely to get irritable than illogical
    -wastes time and money on unreasonable ventures which never quite materialize (ex avon, selling crafts, selling things online, etc)
    My mom did that kind of stuff so I try to avoid doing it
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I do that too. I go back and forth between "I am a caring and enthusiastic mother who is well-attuned to the needs of my children" and "I suck and they're probably going to be bulemic or murderers or both." Sigh.

    Is Ivy internationally famous?

    Remember, Jen, there is method to the madness... or at least ambitious Te.
