    (ENTJ teachers do seem like they would work out slightly better than the stereotypical "I'm right and that's how it is" type of teachers, and might prefer people take more initiative, but would still seem likely to have that "in charge" mentality, and seem that they would be hard to approach.)
    I can see the benefits of having an ENTJ teacher. If they take you all on as soldiers to shape into suceeding individuals! I guess I don't mind the intimidation factor much because I am not easily intimidated, but I remember plenty of my classmates being terrified of our bipolar Chem teacher. (Which meant it fell to me to ask him such genius questions as: Will the scantron work hole-punched?)

    I guess it is just odd to think of an ENTJ teacher because I haven't witnessed any. ISFJs galore, a few ESFJs, ESTPs, and INFxs abound in K-12. College: lots of INTxs and some ISFxs and INFxs and ExTPs.

    I suspect it is very interesting to see how these types use their temperments to be good/efficient in their professions.

    I'm just teasing though. I'm fairly sure Orson Scott Card is an INTJ (or certainly his books exude it somewhat). And he's an acclaimed author.

    I must admit that I enjoyed that CG TMNT movie (for what it was). I also liked that Final Fantasy movie of a few years ago (but I've never played the games).

    Orson Scott Card wrote Ender's Game as a book for adults. He never intended it to be such a popular piece of children's literature. Although, technically that is the first rule to writing a children's book. Write something that an adult would want to read.

    I don't think that an NTJ would make a good sensitivity councilor my old roommates and I used to joke about our ENTJ roommate as a sensitivity councilor

    they also joked that I'd be the worst librarian on the planet- probably NOT a good ESTP job!

    I dunno, to me, constructive criticism is more sensitive than ass-kissing!

    I love it!

    And Whatever, you would be a great librarian if you embraced the need for fines.

    I could see you as a children's librarian, making paper cranes for peace, working with the Teen Players, leading holiday sing-a-longs, setting up wild displays for summer reading programs, helping kids come up with interesting topics for research projects, showing kids how to set up their own web pages on MySpace. Libraries aren't just about books. You'd be a natural.

    I keep thinking she has to be N, but personality-wise, she's extremely SJ. Perhaps her intuition is restricted to her math? I do not know.
