    And it keeps saying "Magic's". Since I'm not doing this, can I assume that Magic Johnson is sponsoring the product?
    Given you're I think under 5% of a population, I doubt you'd be a profitable demographic for marketing.

    eh. I was just stealing your nick for it, being too lazy to come up with something else. Hesitated between Magic and Poriferan, but the latter sounded a bit too scientific and umm. un-chocolatey.

    What does Poriferan mean anyway?

    It is, I can have completely b*tchy conversations with my twin about random people. Tis just that I'm not sure it is really effective at untangling that darn internal feedback loop of an INTP. Sort of like, if you imagine a picture of a person with wires running out from him, and back into him. I think an INTP feedback mechanism is something like that. So if it is an "up" trigger, it is a good loop. But if it is "down" trigger, then it is a little hard to do a circuit break. But there're lots of good suggestions here though.

    A poriferan is a sea sponge.
    Poriferans are a branch of the animal kingdom as oppose to, say, cnidarians or bilaterians.

    I'd dictionary-ed that, but wasn't sure why someone would nick themselves that.. so decided to ask. You relate to them?

    A no no which I think is often missed is try not to be too positive. You'll probably end up all torn up and such on the floor... of course that doesn't apply to overly and irrepressibly cheerful stuff though don't expect the armour to crack instantly.

    My ENFJ mate Mike has a good method usually. He just refers to me as "that miserable f****" (think 'person who multiplies' ). Usually works.

    In addition to the whole being left alone thing, it's not always necessary to leave the room or such but usually refocusing on something away from me works quite nicely. It gives time to reset to a more positive mindset and alos nicely helps people from focusing on my mood and making me feel like I've been placed on some kind of platform.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I think, in general, that annoys MOST people. When I'm going all "Lt. Dan", I really don't need to be told to cheer up.

    I like this Mike and his sparkling genius.

    Yups. I've never done those "oh your life is better than XYZ, count your blessings!! <insert big shiny happy smile>" kind of talk. It is hard to prevent others from doing that though. A quiet "things do get better, in time" works better.... Or... I sneak into her room and be-ribbon her stuffed animals' ears. She'll merrily curse away at me while restoring them to their natural order, but she seems to feel better afterwards...

    meh.

    It's just a name I whipped up one day. One that I knew no-one else would have.
    Afterwards, I began to make-up stuff about magic porifera being like genies.
    The catch is that porifera have no sense organs or central nervous systems, so it's very hard to utilize their wish granting powers...

    Stuff like this comprises a good portion of my daily thoughts.

    *ponders*

    so how do the porifera generate wishes?... from the hollow centre? and.. and... more importantly, how could one get a magic porifera to grant you a wish.
