    Default Friends & family on MBTIc?

    How many of you have friends (IRL) that you knew before joining here or family that have since joined on here (that you know of )?
    I am starting to become addicted to this place and my family is starting to ask questions. The introvert in me is thinking "What a great idea. Maybe people would gain some insight into me that is normally not expressed.". But then the paranoid in me is thinking "Don't do it! You might have written something that will come across as very weird.". But then the logic in me says "Well, what you said might have come across as weird but if that is really you, then other people finding out that is how you feel will only make things better.". But then the "P" in me says "Just don't do anything until you can think about this some more. They might find the site anyway.".

    Where was I? Oh yeah. So, answer the poll and give your insight.

    My husband pops in from time to time and sometime stalks me here. I've gotten a couple of my extroverted friends to sign up, but they haven't stuck around.

    Edit: I wouldn't invite most friend or family here. Just the ones that know and are comfortable with my sardonic, cynical side.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    So you know Cafe in real life? I don't want to discount the bonds that are formed here but was really more interested in the people that you have daily contact with outside of here.

    I did meet her here, so technically we didn't lure each other here. The only reason we don't hang out together on a daily/weekly basis is due to our locations, however there is this dandy little invention called the telephone and we like to use it often.

    Jen makes that nasty ringing phone into a nice sound.

    Ok, sorry. Modified the post to better meet my own evil needs.

    I had my INTJ sis sign up, however her presence was fleeting... school, indifference, and wanting to understand MBTI more before contributing eh.

    I'm going to get my ISTP best/f to sign up, but she's in crazy exam mode. And, she doesn't care about this crap. She'd sooner just use me as a source for it all #_# Hmm, maybe it's best not to get her to join...

    I wouldn't invite anyone else that I know to join. Those two are my most trusted companions in this life thus far.

    They both question how much time I spend on here, though, and it's somewhat of a (big) bother to them as well as a detriment for my cause of making them join (or for sis to peep in more, instead of just lurking -.-)


    Oooh, OL to RL connections. Interesting!

    Most of my friends and family prefer to be out doing stuff and have a short attention span for anything more complicated than email.

    I have.... lessee... two real life friends and one real life family who come here on occasion.

    But I'm not tellin' who they are.
