    As a woman scientist, I can't say I have ever identified with any of them. I suppose Scully would have been the most likely, but I never watched X-files, and only learned much of anything about her recently, when someone mentioned her on another thread.

(Not that he wasn't smart also, I mean, that's one of the things that was so damn sexy about him.) Scully was a character who wasn't written as a "Strong Female Character," she was just a person, a really smart person, who happened to be a woman. For a lot of the show's original run, the character of Scully could have been played by a guy with very minor changes, although in the 90s that would have meant giving up a lot of the sexual tension that was fun about the show. (Nowadays that's not an impediment; people feel free to ship Sherlock and Watson to their hearts' content.)

    I just really can't overstate how exciting that was to a lot of young women in the 90s, myself included- the idea that we could be people first, not written into corners because of our gender.
    Exactly. The best stories are written just about people. Make plots and populate them with characters. Then roll a die to see who is male or female. Make whatever small adjustments the plotline requires, then run with it. It is amazing and disappointing how commonplace those stereotypes remain, even given how many more women appear in dramas without a romantic focus.
    Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere

    Ohh @Coriolis your above comment made me think. I've been seeing this INTJ girl and she also just so happens to be in chemistry, got her doctorate recently and wants to get into lithium ion battery tech. Anyways, we seem to be meshing very well so far and each time we've met up it's been theoretical, abstract discussion and I absolutely love it! Totally satisfies my Ne "cravings" and thirst for big, unanswered life questions. But, sometimes I'd love to just be casual and enjoy life too, experience things, lose oneself. Typical "free-spirit" things. As a female INTJ in the sciences, how should I go about potentially bringing out the fun side of her and to just let loose? Or, is that appreciated? I'd hate to step over any boundaries with her too so I've been trying to feel her out and gauge the situation.

    Much thanks!

    I'm going to try to be robotic or without personality as much as I can:

    Hi. I'm forever. I like learning about psychology. People are interesting to me. What do you find interesting?

    Oh that argument is bad. I know another way to say it. Your friend doesn't know how to cook, so work with me here, your food isn't the best.

    This ice cream is delicious, who knew vanilla can be amazing. I like sport cars when they are cheap and efficient.

    I cannot sleep. I cannot believe why I would still be typing on this phone when I could be sleeping. But I can't. Boring. Will be awake tonight.

    I don't know why. But there is a car being driven at night. It is painful to write like this. Ouch.

    Where is your personality? I don't have one. Hah-hah. See you tomorrow.

    Guy from Fidelity finally called back (several weeks later). I set up an interview for next Thurs, but I'll probably be calling them back after my noon meeting telling them I accepted a position with another firm.

    Oh, the hypocrisy of Angela Merkel. ....

    Spying for Me, But Not for Thee - The American Interest

    While Germany was publicly fuming about the revelation in 2013 that the NSA was listening in on Angela Merkel’s cell phone conversations, it was secretly tapping those of top-level U.S. and U.K. diplomats.
    Every country spies.... to pretend otherwise or throw a fit is just silly. ...

    no I do NOT want to give you my account information, I would like to give you a piece of my mind because your website's crappy and I hate your phone tree

    happily, I found that feeling annoyed and pushing # over and over takes me right to a person

    unhappily, I was reminded that while annoyed I revert very slightly back to my native accent, which apparently makes me somewhat incomprehensible over the phone to non-native speakers (my state gets it's very own accent!)
