    Yes, this is what they are.

    I didn't realize people didn't like them until you pointed it out, but now that you mention it people don't seem to get them unless I explain them, so I've unconsciously stopped using them.

    INFP is to INTJ as INTP is to INFJ. Programmer is to computer as magician is to golem.

    I'm rather fond of them, actually.

    You know, when I got my first Apple computer, I wanted to program it for metaphors, but found I couldn't.

    And as far as I know, no one up to the present day has been able to write a program to produce metaphors.

    So far it seems that only human beings like you and I, Athenian, can create metaphors.

    And yes, they are completely delightful.

    The only caveat is that you can't take them too far or they become exhausted.

    All this means is that just as we bake fresh bread every day, so we mint fresh new metaphors.

    You are very intelligent, mature and have a straight line. The different stone colors and shapes could symbolize all your different traits. Also, you seem introverted; the closed circles work quite good for that.
    Circles also represent order, synchronicity, and existence... Thank you Ms. Legacy!
