    I wasn't really sure if I should feel picked on. Was it because I'm new or are there really people that would be intensely bothered by my using a different word to describe **MY** observation than they would have chosen?

    I don't think I'm all that offended but I am wondering if this is something normal around here that I should get used to.
    you said what i should have said a couple of posts back

    exactly how i feel

    I think its an XNTP vs XNFP difference. the XNTPs tend to want to shake things up (nothing wrong with that, good for them) and the XNFPs dont quite know what to think about it. a good chunk of the time the XNTPs are just having fun in their own way.

    at least thats how i see it

    I can't be sure, but I don't think it has to do with your status here.

    As for settling in here in general, the best thing to do is just to say what you have to say without worrying so much about whether people accept you. People enjoy sincerity and self-confidence and you'll integrate yourself naturally. If you do happen to worry about it, no big deal, it'll wear off eventually. Injecting some humor into the situation (your unsureness) won't hurt either, and it is kinda comical.
    good advice, thank you

    See the problem here is that we don't have a font for sarcasm... When ever I get an insult like this (I never got one that rude, only got snappy remarks) I take it as a joke. I am pretty sure most (99%) of the people here mean you no harm at all, even if they correct your grammar (which is a common trait of many forum elitests everywhere). The grammar nazi's give up quick... when they have to deal with people like me who seem totally oblivious to the fact that they can't string up the most simplest of sentances in their own language. Anyway, what I am trying to get at is take everything as entertainment only as if you were out socializing with friends (friends that are incapable of offending you that is). Also, if someone happens to offend you, PM them and let them know, I promise you that 99.9% of the time it was not intended, unless the person that offended you was an INTJ, in which case it is always intended to hurt (the last bit was sarcastic).

    oh from now on, green italic will be my sarcasm font... which I know will take the fun out of it, if it has to be so obvious.

    I do wonder how long people keep the "rooky" label here?
    Does it depend on time spent here?
    On posts?
    On popularity?

    I think it's when one stops posting shit/FA, and starts to get a feel for the other members.

    I cater to the person I'm interacting with.

    This has worked out really well.

    My first type was by someone who really didn't like me and they gave me a wonderful type - something I would never have guessed myself - and something I would never find on a test.

    The truth is your enemies know you better than your friends and your enemies are the more truthful - you can rely on your enemies to tell the truth, while your friends will save your feelings.

    My next two types were by fair minded individuals and the types were almost identical. So I am trying one after the other to see how they fit.

    Of course the nicest thing you could do for me would be to tell me what type you think I am.
    Wait, which one was I? A friend or an enemy?
