    Alright, so it's less of a pile and more of a chute. Where they drop into the alligator pit and have to earn their way back by surviving.

    I was talking to my friends who just got her PhD in biomedical engineering (this is going somewhere, I swear) and she was talking about potential partners in that scene. She said she wouldn't want to be with anyone that she went to school with because when she tried to get more personal with them all they could do is talking about their work and projects and were resistant to talking about anything outside of that. It was a very interesting conversation. She's getting her post-doc now and she says it's the same problem, the people are completely obsessed with their work and while you they're are quite "intellectual" and "academic" it's not much more to them than that. Seems like a one trick pony to me. BTW, she's an eNTJ.

    If you don't mind getting into those types of conversations then continue. I also tend to look at it the other way as well, people like that tend to also be pedantic and only accepting of their form of intelligence. It's great you can speak their language but can they speak yours?

    Really, I don't think it's so much an obsession with their work as much as it is an intellectual's habit to be serious when they are in a work environment so they can focus on the tasks at hand. While others like to play at work, I like to remain focus because I really cant do as well without being focused, especially if its in an advanced field like biomedical engineering. Outside of work is a very dif story though, where I'm free to be much more relaxed. Though you might have to push a little for me to communicate with you differently than I usually would as a coworker, when outside of work. But believe me, there is more to every person than their "obsession" with their jobs/careers.

    Judging from what you're wanting and Orangey's reaction I'm not sure I'd want to be "commitment-potential"...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I dunno.. if Mozzes considers reading Atlas Shrugged to be misery, I think we might have a future.

    Finnegan's Wake is much worse. We're all lucky James Joyce is dead and can no longer trouble us with his epic phonetical blasphemies.

    Long long mails as in they would send you their opinion already completed and then await your response?

    I don't think I've ever done that, but I do open up with some heavy topics as early as possible to gauge their responses and capabilities.
