    Thanks Toonia! I think Q is the queen of keeping track of everyone. She's like an external harddrive of useful data! Whatever's pretty good at that too. Must be an EXXP thing.

    I've never noticed those little fencing emoticons before. I like the surprised look they have as they jump to evade their opponents.

    It's interesting that no-one even knows (or possibly cares) what i do
    So i'll just leave you guessing (Because i know that everyone is desperate to know)
    Or i'll leave it up to Berbs to tell what i'm an expert in....
    oohh the suspense, it's killing you (all)

    That would be a private conversation, not a public advertisement.
    Man, I just don't see how something as mundane as this can be seen as a popularity contest, or as an unnecessary intrusion on people's privacy. However, I am interested in how and why others do view it that way.
    Really? Then you don't understand people very well.
    I agree that it is mundane. Banal, even.
    But the fact is that every other thread on here is a popularity contest. Who is the best this, who is the worst that, top 5 whatever, which type sucks at X which type would you like to blah blah blah. Subverting the goals of MBTI which are about moving away from a preoccupation with judgments of better and worse. It is about valuing diversity. Goals which presumably attracted many people to the system in the first place. I find this odd. It seems the relentless drive to establish status and draw up hierarchies cannot be escaped - even where it has no relevance whatsoever.

    I fail to see what possible value this thread has outside of this tradition. For one thing, many of the so-called experts are nothing of the sort, although this is really too trivial to debate. Second, if you need information on a specific topic you can just start a personal thread to solicit opinion from as wide an audience as possible - not even real experts have a monopoly on good advice.

    as for the rest of the post, if threads of this sort bother you so much, block them

    as for me, I've learned quite a bit about the interests of other members of the forum in this thread- things that are rather fascinating but I hadn't known before!

    and as far as experts on wine go on this site, I think I DO qualify- it was my job for a few years and I have an education in it
