I can muse upon the arts, sciences, history, philosophy. As we say here in Southern England sometimes "the whole shabang." Whatever I desire. A beautiful but sterile place may not serve any purpose for me unless an object in it stirs reflection in me. Unfortunately I have no love for art or creativity other than my own or what I can find value in. The quintessential philistine perhaps?
    I can identify with that. It's just in my case, unfortunately, I have no good places to walk. I can walk along the street where I may get hit by cars or I can walk on a track where I may get mugged. That's why when I visit friends in foreign countries I am often very impressed by the places I find to walk.

    What I was essentially saying is that everywhere has the potential to be "a good place to walk" no matter how bland or dull it may be. Depends what it is you're looking for. For example in the last thirty minutes I've been pacing around my cold living room and just realised why the Industrial Revolution occurred in Britain, how it could have occurred in ancient times and also the components of strategic failure in top-down programmes utilised and proposed in the period of African investment during the 1970s. By definition my pace around the room would have been a dull walk as it did not connect with anything beautiful, only the mundane contents of my living room. However it was a good walk than most because of the insights it managed to provide which were much more than what was achieved during scenic walks.

    I'm waffling however.

    I'm just saying that walking has always been important to me. Throughout my life I've always been able to find good places to walk whether they were scenic or not. I've lived in several places in the U.S. and I've visited foreign countries extensively. I've always been able to find good places to walk. Until now. I guess the problem is living in this neighborhood, though, something that happened more by accident than by choice.

    Jeez, this thread went lame since I stopped posting in it.

    I confess, I have been thrown a couple of times. All part of the fun. Most of the time I manage to stay on top.

    The rising trot is a stiff (English) kind of gait. At higher speeds, (on better breeds) the motion is less jerky.

    Women often say that and my argument is that it isn't. If it went downhill it was when I made the pointless suggestion about sex with animals producing more cogent results than surveying opinions for best romantic match.

    Don't let the Horse taste victory and don't perceive falling off as a defeat. Instead turn it into a burger or lasagne instead. The one who outlasts the other is the winner and that would be you; the rider who is now indulging in some cheap cuisine. Yum yum.

    My bad. If it turns out I was banging a bloke then I would just claim I was unaware, citing fantastic anecdotes of Kathoey close encounters and unknowing marriages to transsexuals. Deep down however I would carry the shame of creating spelling errors and not structuring my sentences to the quality I would like. Having made out with a dude would be the lesser source of shame of the two.

    What do your jokes and a Findus ready meal have in common?

    May contain 100% shit? I don't know.

    Edit: I'm really curious for an answer if you could enlighten me.

    I agree that the thread went lame. But part of this had to do with the fact that I was posting boring posts about walking, a few other pointless posts about horses (a topic I've not been very familiar with since childhood,) and some more useless posts about the fact that I live in a bad neighborhood. I have a talent for derailing threads.

    I've heard the phrase "the whole shebang" many times. I doubt that I've ever used it myself and think it's not something you'd likely hear much now (in America.)

    What older ESTJ's do for Valentine's Day:

    My husband is away on business, not home until tomorrow.

    So, he left a card and heart-shaped chocolate with my son, who set it up on the kitchen table for me to find this morning.

    Then, he sent me this in e-mail, which I just saw now:

    When I'm working, yes, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
    And when the money comes in for the work I do
    I'll pass almost every penny on to you
    When I come home (When I come home), oh, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
    And if I grow old, well, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

    When I'm lonely, well, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
    And when I'm dreaming, well, I know I'm gonna dream
    I'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you
    When I go out (When I go out), well, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
    And when I come home (When I come home), yes, I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who comes back home with you
    I'm gonna be the man who's coming home with you

    And I would walk five hundred miles
    And I would walk five hundred more
    Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
    To fall down at your door

    THAT brought tears to my eyes, there's so much of a message in there, that I can't fully explain to you all, but so moving!

    Now I have a personal reason to love "500 Miles" too.

    You'll perhaps note that the first verse is not quoted ... I went and listened to the song. And I see why - it's the verse about getting drunk and "havering" (talking gibberish.) True that those are not applicable to him!

    Anyway, why do I post this? Because I think the ESTJ love gets a bad rap here and I want you girls to keep your minds open to the kind of sweetness and steadfastness an ESTJ can bring to your life. Especially now in our 40's ... as that inner romantic gets more and more developed.

    True, you could enjoy love with all types, but just remember that before you shush the STJ's away. I feel very blessed.
    "Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one."
    Eleanor Roosevelt

    other things become ugly.
    When people see some things as good,
    other things become bad."

    Actually, I've changed my mind. What type is most likely to be the charismatic yet introverted leader of la revolution? I want that one.
