    Where I am now is nowhere. I am in preparation mode. I've got several options in my eyes, one of which needs developing a lot, and all of which need developing on some level. I can either go into law or business. If I went into law, I have two options: become a barrister or solicitor. Whatever my career path, I want to make a lot of money.

    What do you do in your spare time?
    I talk about personality systems. I listen to music and read. I watch films and play on Xbox Live. I do OTC-related stuff.

    What types do you enjoy being around?
    Not most of the people I am around, who are normally ESFPs. They're too common; too boring.

    What types do you tend to fall in love with, what did you like or not like about them?
    I've never fallen in love.

    What do you love, what do you hate (about people close to you and just people in general, about life, rules, society, men/women)?
    I love freedom, autonomy and meritocracy. I hate bad music and people who constantly attack others.

    What's the first thing you notice about a person? (just a person in general or when checking someone out, what would you take notice of?)
    Complexion. Always complexion first. That decides for me whether a woman is attractive or not, or if a man is a good man or not.

    Something you would change about yourself? Something you admire about yourself?
    I'd change my talking about shit I have little to no idea about. I'd say I like my decisiveness and my will.

    How have you grown as an individual, your life lessons?
    I feel like I've experienced a hell of a lot already. Most of this has been visible to no one but myself, but my mind has developed massively. I've learned that aggression and force is not the way to make a gain, and that there's no gain without pain. I've learned that for most people it takes roughly ten, sometimes five, seconds to make a decision about you within meeting you. I've learned that people naturally flock towards various individuals for various reasons, and never towards you unless they have a reason to. Sometimes you will not like that reason, but for the most part you will.

    What is your idea of an ideal married life? (Your roles, spouses roles, kids)
    I could marry a housewife. I could. This wouldn't be an issue for me. At the same time, if I married a careerist, I'd warn her that when we had kids, she would have to sacrifice her career, at least initially, and perhaps change her line of work for good. I want to be able to provide comfortable and well-off living spaces for my family, even if my wife was out of work. I'm willing to work for it.

    Any pet peeves?
    Poor grammar. People who think their knowledge, wisdom and way of living is exclusive to them, and who will happily brag about it.

    What do you tend to stand up for?
    The weak; those who can't defend themselves. If I saw a gang of six attacking a single person, I would instinctively break it up and sort it out. If I thought the issue was fair, I'd allow a one-on-one fight. I have no qualms about settling an issue man to man, if the only way to do so is through a release of physical aggression and a handshake and a hug at the end.

    And just something I need to know... If you know an INFP, what do you think of them? If not an INFP then any NF's..
    My father is an INFP, perhaps an INFJ. I admire a lot of what he does. I understand most of his courses of action, even if others don't understand why he might do something.

    I hate people who are dramatic and get all worked up about small nonsensical issues. Add to that people who are insecure and feel the need to prove themselves to others. Competitiveness outside of a structured task (such as a sport) - it's stupid.

    What is your career/career goal, how long has it taken you to figure it out and get to where you are?
    My career goal is to be something in law, most probably prosecuting. I would enjoy a career in the FBI as well.

    What do you do in your spare time?
    I read. Obsess about my shows. Work out. Socialize. But generally, in the time where I'm relaxing -- I watch TV. It's the only way that I can actually escape from reality for a bit and just RELAX. Same goes for reading.

    What types do you enjoy being around?
    I love INTJs, ENTPs, and some feeling types -- most of my girlfriends are ENFPs.

    What types do you tend to fall in love with, what did you like or not like about them?
    I've only been in love once and that is currently with an ENTP. He frustrates me, fascinates me, interests me...but I do get annoyed often with his stupidity. By stupidity I mean his inability to think ahead or about the consequences of what he does. He just doesn't ever think ahead. I like that he is silly, clever, witty, and just all around interesting.
    I did once have a thing with an INTx. He was...so awfully mean and blunt, I loved it.

    What do you value in your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend (if you have one)?
    See above.
    As well as...I need humor and for them to challenge me. This doesn't mean to just incessantly argue, but to just challenge me on a whole. Stand up when he thinks I'm wrong or...I dunno how to describe it. But if they don't interest me or challenge me, which I can sense in boyfriend material, I will not glance their way again.

    What do you love, what do you hate (about people close to you and just people in general, about life, rules, society, men/women)?
    I love people who love honesty and appreciate blunt conversations.
    I hate smalltalk.
    I hate the mundane.
    I hate the social contract that has been forced on us all.
    I love law and order though. Figure that one out. :p
    I love the way a man smells.

    What's the first thing you notice about a person? (just a person in general or when checking someone out, what would you take notice of?)
    Physically? Their eyes. You can tell everything you need to know about someone within five minutes, and the first cue you get is from the look in their eyes.
    Mentally? I notice if they laugh. If they don't laugh, then boo on them.

    Something you would change about yourself? Something you admire about yourself?
    I would change my obsessive need to control and the freak-outs that happen when I feel as though I'm losing control of a situation or relationship. I'm not very healthy on this front -- and it tends to get worse the more I'm invested in a situation.
    I admire my ability to stay on top of things and rise to a challenge. I admire myself for people thinking I'm a badass. Makes me feel all warm inside.


    How have you grown as an individual, your life lessons?
    I don't know, honestly.
    I just have matured as all children eventually do.
    I'm a bitter, misanthropic, humorous hag though.

    What is your idea of an ideal married life? (Your roles, spouses roles, kids)
    Just a happy family. A husband who does what he loves.
    Kids who are well-adjusted and have all they need without being spoiled brats.
    A mom, but a career woman as well. I'LL MAKE IT WORK.

    Any pet peeves?
    Creepy long fingernails.
    People who don't respond to text messages.
    People who are always emotional.


    What do you tend to stand up for?
    What I feel is right.
    For people who can't stand up for themselves.

    And just something I need to know... If you know an INFP, what do you think of them? If not an INFP then any NF's..
    Don't know any INFPs that I know of...but, I do have A LOT of NF friends. They're pretty awesome, and I find they counter balance out my craziness. But my ENFP friends frustrate me at times with the lack of ever planning anything.

    What is your career/career goal, how long has it taken you to figure it out and get to where you are?

    My goal is to organize a political party based on the eradication of private property brought about by the fury of the working class. I decided upon it when I was... oh, sixteen or so? Growing up I was always around poverty. With poverty comes misery and it kind of bugs me. Not to mention our economy is terribly inefficient.

    What do you do in your spare time?
    I read my non-politically aligned books. Or I break into abandoned buildings.

    What types do you enjoy being around?
    INTJ's are fucking awesome. I also like ENTP's, INFJ's, ESTJ's, and ISTJ's. I would like to meet an INFP though.

    What types do you tend to fall in love with, what did you like or not like about them?

    I only fell in love once, it was with an INTP and it was a disaster, so much so that I remained single for the next several years and remain single to this day.

    What do you value in your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend (if you have one)?

    I like a partner to be on board with whatever I'm doing. I also like when they can bring the emotional side out of me, believe it or not, it is really nice to be intimate with someone on an emotional level, so long as it doesn't interfere with whatever you're doing.

    What do you love, what do you hate (about people close to you and just people in general, about life, rules, society, men/women)?

    What do I love? I love the idea of struggle and adversity. Nothing is greater than achievement but only when it's coupled with a good fight does it get really orgasmic.

    I hate a lot of things, we'd be here all day if I were to list them all. Suffice it to say I hate capitalism and ketchup.

    What's the first thing you notice about a person? (just a person in general or when checking someone out, what would you take notice of?)

    I usually look at the face.

    Something you would change about yourself? Something you admire about yourself?

    I guess I could be nicer to people but I've yet to find it worth the effort. I most admire the fact that I'm principled and stick to my guns.

    How have you grown as an individual, your life lessons?

    This question sucks


    What is your idea of an ideal married life? (Your roles, spouses roles, kids)

    Marriage. lol.

    Any pet peeves?

    Whistling.

    What do you tend to stand up for?

    I stand up for the oppressed, working masses.
    I feel compelled to an end I cannot comprehend. Until I get there, not an army in the world will stop me. Once I am finished, a feather will suffice to destroy me."- Napoleon Bonaparte

    *Word Wall Warning*

    for all the tl:dr (too long: didn't read) folks Disco is going into politics and thinks about things sometimes probably....

    What is your career/career goal, how long has it taken you to figure it out and get to where you are?
    Easier asked than answered no doubt. It's taken me the better part of 24 years to figure out what I want to do. That's not right....

    I always knew what I wanted to do I just didn't know how I was going to go about doing it.

    Let me start at the beginning.

    When I was young, I had a crazy dream. A dream that no one wants to have.

    I dreamed that I was President....

    and needless to say, it affected me....

    From what I remembered of the dream initially, being President didn't seem very fun. And didn't seem like something that I would enjoy very much.

    Now I understand that a few people out there are probably thinking, "Being President sounds like a pretty sweet thing, why's he bitching about it?" (or not, I really can't gauge your interest at the moment... that is unless I'm right behind you......)





    just kidding...

    But I digress... People always dream about being elected President, not the actual doing of the job. It's tough being accountable and responsible for your family isn't it...

    How much tougher would it be to be accountable and responsible for 330 million Americans?

    At that point, I let the dream fade away into fuzzy warm childhood memories and didn't worry much more about it.

    Fast forward to my freshman year of High School. It was a pretty standard and boring year, besides deciding to go from AP classes up to IB. And economics. I had a feisty little Latino teacher I can't remember the name of. Anyway, I really enjoyed the class and liked how it it dealt with the Macro rules that govern our financial system. This class planted the seed.

    The next year I moved into IB, or the "nerd herd" as high school vernacular would have it. With this I began the study of European History with the reverred Mrs. Coburn. I dug the wars and state building, thought the Renaissance was pretty cool, and really got into the enlightenment. I think this class, is where my true education began. Where I began to study the ways in which powerful sovereigns deal with each other to the greatest benefit (or detriment) of all. This was the first class that dealt with complex interstate diplomacy, and that really hits my intellectual G-spot....

    Unfortunately my AP US history teacher sucked my junior year so the budding diplomat inside me took a nap that year. That was until I got the opportunity to Study at Cambridge in England with the Cambridge College Program in the summer of 2003.

    That summer for the first time I GOT TO CHOOSE what classes I wanted. Well two of them at least. I was forced to take British Cultural History (but it wasn't so bad). For my other classes I chose the History of Espionage and International Relations and terrorism. The funny thing was, the Espionage class was a double-oh-seven snoozer.....

    And International Relations and Terrorism was a Revelation!!!!!!

    It was like a bomb was set off in my head.

    To give you a sense of how this class affected me. Months later during my senior year in high while sitting in my Modern history class, I was drawing up multi-point plans on how to stabilize and leave Iraq. Plans that focused primarily on infrastructure and education. And I'm one lazy mother fucker.

    My senior year continued my education in history. But not too much worth noting (career wise) happened that year.

    I was accepted to the Alma Mater of both my Father and Grandfather,

    The University of Florida

    I got a 100% free ride to UF. I got paid for books.

    My Father wanted me to be a business major of some sort. Well.....

    He wanted my first major to be whatever I wanted but that second one should be business.

    I hopped on the Poli. Sci. train from the word go, and thought I'd take a double in Economics. I was pretty interested in my core poli. sci. classes, but all the math in Econ, made me want to punch someone. Let it be said. I'm good at math, I just dislike it. And chose to stop taking it after trig. pretty much. I took IB math studies, my senior year of HS, hooray dumb math!

    Anyway, outside of POS 4114 no single college poli. sci. class really stuck out at me. It was the class was called legislative politics, and I loved every minute of it. We got to conduct congressional simulations in class. Luckily I took it before I joined Lambda Chi Alpha and decided to become the guy your parents warned you about.

    But that served it's purpose too. I did a lot of social growing in college. (interpret the term social growing as you will :pornstar

    This is where the story gets difficult. I took the LSAT and didn't study. Did well enough to get in.

    I come from a family of doctor's and lawyers, the lawyer gene skipped my Dad and went to me everyone thought. Well I did get it. Unfortunately as my penchant for math with tell you, ability for a subject doesn't necessarily equate to interest in it. There were a few classes I loved in Law School. That's what was so confusing. I loved, crim law, loved con law and loved criminal procedure. I remember speaking with my crim Law Professor who had been a Poli. Sci. undergrad at Harvard, and telling him that the laws were dumb that we should write better ones.

    I was more concerned with right and wrong that what the letter of the law actually said.

    The scariest part about Law School was the longer I was there the less I gave a shit about it. I was supposed to love this, this was supposed to be my calling. I damn near killed myself trying to prop up that facade.

    It was while working with a Judge that I decided that this wasn't what I wanted to do anymore. Luckily this decision also coincided with my decision to fail evidence the prior semester.

    I have spent the better part of this last year depressed and unemployed and worried about what I will be.

    Luckily I had become close with several professors and the Judge I worked for and was able to square away some letters of recommendation. And had grown up in the neighborhood of the current Representative of Florida's 4th district Ander Crenshaw.

    I sent in the app.

    Way to much baited breath later....

    Voila your internship in the exciting Metropolitan city of D.C. awaits...

    NOW ON TO THE NEXT CHAPTER OF MY LIFE

    I hope that answers your first question.

    What do you do in your spare time?
    Think a lot. Video games. Weed. Read. Follow current events. Hang with friends, blah blah blah........

    What types do you enjoy being around?
    I didn't know there were types I didn't enjoy being around.

    What types do you tend to fall in love with, what did you like or not like about them?
    Still not certain if I've experienced love. Certainly not reciprocal love.

    What do you value in your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend (if you have one)?
    N/A

    What do you love, what do you hate (about people close to you and just people in general, about life, rules, society, men/women)?
    I love discretion. Someone smart enough that I don't have to show them how to play by the rules. I LOVE a challenge. The bigger the better, and who says love isn't a challenge in and of itself, maybe its the only challenge that matters.

    I hate many things.

    What's the first thing you notice about a person? (just a person in general or when checking someone out, what would you take notice of?)
    Eyes.

    Something you would change about yourself? Something you admire about yourself?
    Change love handles. I admire my courage.

    How have you grown as an individual, your life lessons?
    I'm gonna say answer one kinda covered this. And since this post is already far too long I will leave this explanation for later.

    What is your idea of an ideal married life? (Your roles, spouses roles, kids)
    We marry while we are both working or she may still be in school. I would prefer a parent at home during the formative years i.e. the first 18. But this wouldn't be a unilateral decision in a marriage. I think kids need a mom or dad in the house at least until high school.

    Any pet peeves?
    disloyalty

    What do you tend to stand up for?
    Human rights. The best argument I have ever made was on behalf of Hamdi in Hamdi v. Rumsfeld - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And just something I need to know... If you know an INFP, what do you think of them? If not an INFP then any NF's..
    INFP's rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My career goal is to become an academic within the field of ancient history. Should that not come off, I suppose I'll join the RAF as a pilot.

    I read science fiction, ancient history and philosophy of history. I occasionally read books on different topics, too.

    I've never been in love, and probably never will be.

    That question is rather broad. Suffice it to say that I value intelligence and virtue, and disparage their opposites.

    In general, the first thing I notice about someone is their gender.

    I'd make myself more intelligent. As for what I admire in myself? My intelligence.

    I really don't have much experience here, but one "lesson" I have learnt is not to trust fully people who are not members of my close family.

    I don't know, nor have I ever known, an INFP. I knew an ENFJ reasonably well, and that experience has led me to be quite sceptical about NFs. It is not so much their overt emotionalism, but their lack of reliability and, especially, loyalty that causes this.

    I'm an INTP.
