    It makes me sad that this post seems to have been overlooked. Quoting it to call more attention to it.

    @ the claws and fangs of this thread: Wow. Just, wow. Anyone want a root beer float?
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    Dude, I'm offended. Doesn't sound like you were offering that to everyone. I smell a hint of discrimination.
