    Then not really. Right now I'm devoting most of my resources to non-others.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    When a problem arises, it is easier to just do something to solve it rather than to having to watch and feel sick about it. That principle applies to various situations of others and non-others in various ways. I don't see NFs as having the market on such things. They might tend to offer a particular flavor of help possibly making more effort to understand the actual vantage point of the other person, whereas an NT might look for the most efficient and lasting solution, and the SJ the most practical, reliable solution that meets the greatest temporal needs first, and the SP giving their whole self in the moment w/o having to analyze any of it first.

    I have have tried a couple of times, but a lot of those kinds of programs are poorly organized and they don't get back to me before I lose interest, or they lose my application and I don't pursue it, etc. I'll probably try again.

    Im pretty big in the "every man for himself and survival of the fittest" stuff, I think I just dont like helping people in general. Now if I know them or have some personal connection then yeah sure no prob, but I dont do it on a regular basis. And actually I hate those commericials about "send this random kid who you dont know 25 cents, and hell you dont even know if this is a real program ahahahaah...send us money." What a load of BS!

    I'm not because I don't have time for it and I don't want to make a commitment for something that would restrict me.

    I volunteer for our local Habitat for Humanity branch every summer. Last year I spent five weekends helping to build a house and finish painting the inside. (I'm an excellent painter, not so good with a hammer, think I put a door on backwards).

    I help out from time to time with the Salvation Army and Amnesty International, and for the past few years I've helped sort and wrap christmas presents for people in a local homeless shelter I like the nice warm fuzzy feeling I get from it xD
