    Default NT's and Self Improvement.

    All the time i am observing my own behavior as well as the behaviors of others. I try to pick things out that i like or dont like and implement them effectively in my own skillset. I want others to share self improvement ideas, tactics, and sources. Ill start.

    This book by far is the single most important thing i have ever read, and it dramitically changed my life and helped me understand others, myself, and just good people handling skills, every entp and estp wants to know these things as it helps immensly with satisfyling our hidden agenda.

    Self-improvement is apparently a relative term.

    Default Be Yourself???

    No one remains set do they? Everyone changes overtime. Especially the clever ones who learn from others and try to eradicate the mistakes they see in themselves. This is why the phrase 'Be yourself' is meaningless and in soooo many ways stupid .

    Anyway at the OP, don't read Mystery's crap advice. They are sickeningly stupid. Urgh! And what kind of an stupid dumb ass would name himself Mystery? That's just lame. And there is nothing mysterious about him other than how he manages to be so skinny . And his advice are disgustingly unfruitful. To share my thoughts on romance/seduction, the best advice I've read are by Zan Perrion. No tricks and brutally honest .

    I'm pretty into self-improvement. Right now on my whiteboard in my bedroom, it says:

    Steps toward
    Self Improvement

    7 minutes vigorous strength training
    1 hour play music
    1 hour fresh air

    Every day.

    Also, credit for my new avatar goes to this person. I found it on the google.

    I immediatly looked up Zan, and he is a good ladies man and a good communicator. I like mystery because he gets very technical and he applies a healthy amount of evolutionary psychology. and he might be an entp because it was a extremely good read.

    Reading some of the rules this enjoins suggests to me that it is parody. If it isn't, that people would try to apply such rules to their life saddens me. It will probably sadden them, too, when they're shunned by their peers for being utter tossers.

    Anyone who even entertains the idea of reading this book is a pathetic, odious little man indeed.

    I don't much care about making friends. I don't much care about influencing people, either. If these are your life's aims, you haven't a life at all.

    At least you've found a way to feel superior.
