    I guess interpretation is based on life experience
    Yes. And you are perfectly right. So is Elfinchilde.
    Sometimes a thing you enjoy lasts too short a time. So you must enjoy what little experience you have.

    So did Giorgio Bassani enjoy his Micol, a Jewish girl, in Ferrara on the Po di Volano, under the time of Mussolini.

    Incidentally, Il Gattopardo had never seen daylight had it not been for Giorgio Bassani.

    Giorgio and Micol had grown up in Ferrara, in Emilia Romagna, north of Bologna. Vittorio De Sica made Ferrara famous with his film Il Giardino dei Finzi-Contini, based on the Bassani series of books of the war time events in Ferrara.
    Micol and all her family were captured by the Nazis. They died in a German concentration camp.

    If an Italian emigrated to America, he was sometimes given the name of his native town in America.
    Vito Andolini became Vito Corleone in the Mario Puzo novel The Godfather.

    An Immigrant, a Ferrara, settled in the Bronx. He begot a son, Abel.
    Abel Ferrara became a movie director and in 1993 he directed the film Body Snatchers.

    In the film, plant-like pods take over human bodies. They are the body snatchers. Aliens of course.

    A little boy saw his mother fall asleep and subsequently be taken over by an alien.
    He said: They come when you sleep.
    I kind of liked that phrase.
    And I have used it sometimes in diverse meanings.
    It is something that sticks in the mind.

    They come when you sleep.

    Default Do you think you can put a little more pressure on my 11th post?!

    Would there be too many groans if I say that I have been lurking in the shadows?

    That would be Ti, Ne, Si, and Fi for those of you keeping score at home.

    Ten posts and I get my own thread? Please don't feed the ego. I don't want to turn into an INTP .

    Speaking of your prioritization model, I believe I pmed you my data long ago. How far along that have you gotten. Or mayhaps you're a pretender J like me who start stuff and ran out of time?

    I got a whopping two responses (maybe the math scared people away even though I was the one crunching the numbers?), hardly enough data to do any deeper analysis. Thanks, though, for being one of the two!

    I like that term ("pretender J," especially since it starts with 'p') - though I'm an odd variant. I rarely leave things unfinished forever, but my inability to block out distractions (i.e. other topics I must learn everything about now) causes long delays. I've left projects sitting unfinished for months (even years), only to have some unanticipated event inspire me to return and finish.

    Did you look at the two threads Jennifer posted? There's a ton of data there... At least 200 samples. A tad heavy on the Ns but plenty to work with. Actually even thinking about going through them gives me a headache.

    Tell me about unfinished projects... I have a stack of them myself.

    DD: I'm the insane fearless mouse remember? INTJs? Pah!

    lol. the lady elf greets Narticus.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    I know me too! But I am exactly as Narticus said:

    INTJs and INFJs are twin CP cousins! We can be similar like that and more!

    I don't fear to know and there is no fear to not know! I live with a lil'INTJ.

    Consider your post the unanticipated inspiration, just as soon as I find the time to jump start the project.

    No, I'm relieved you didn't get bored with this board and leave.

    Yes, they alternate between arrogance/vanity and being really down on themselves... it's like being manic depressive, only worse. Glad I'm an INFJ.

    Anyway, I found your post interesting, although I've seen similar ones in the past. Everyone sees an idea slightly differently.
