    I thought the summary could have been told in the style of Tolkien to greater effect.
    I wrote a mythic version, but it's somewhat obscure.

    I probably know more about the first MBTIC than anyone here, but I don't talk about it. Omerta.

    If you spill the beans, I will Tolkien-ize them.

    (And I am just crazy enough to do it!)

    Besides, I need a good excuse to dust off my copy of The Silmarillion.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “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

    No. Some things are best left undiscussed. I'm not Uberfurher, looking for a quickie with a corpse.

    Suffice to say: Once bitten, twice shy.

    I think that what I say or do while drunk is outside of the scope of this conversation.

    I'm not sure what you're saying here. Are you drunk presently?

    And MBTI Central was born.



    Bullet History:

    • NCentral closed.
    • And influx of non-INTPs, and a few dissatisfied former INTPc members, migrated to INTP Central.
    • The Administration of INTPc feared the new immigrants.
    • Two lowly mods came up with identical plans to "solve" this "problem" for INTPc.
    • One of the INTPc Mods decided to run his site, the other decided to let others run his site.
    • Clearly, Mod #1 was more ambitious than Mod #2.
    • Mod #2's site was the first incarnation of MBTIc.
    • Unfortunately, the recent immigrants of INTPc, and the disgruntled members of INTPc, didn't like the original MBTIc, which caused it to hover in obscurity.
    • The conflicts at INTPc grew greater still.
    • Mod #2 decided to start a new MBTIc while becoming totally involved in its development this time (eg, Mod #2 learned a valuable lesson).
    • Hence, in April of this year, the new MBTI Central was revised, pushed, and developed into this little old site you have before you today.

    And we who were victims of that struggle do thank you for your time and efforts.

    I've always wondered who Haight determined was Mod #1 and Mod #2.
