    Default Star Trek

    Hi

    My boss is an ENTJ, and he often refers to things through using Star Trek analogies, infact he and another collegue have used trek examples to ahve whole conversations.

    Do you think that NTs are more prone to to being SciFi geeks?

    I liked the campyness and humour of the original series. And I love the moral messages. The rest can fuck off.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Maybe? My husband is not a firm NT. He actually waivers between ISTP and INTP, depending on the test. He's a bigger sci-fi geek than I am about some things. While I enjoyed the Ringworld series, I wouldn't have read it if it weren't for him. He does Neil Gaimon and Spider Robinson books. He plays Halo.

    Me? Not so much. I hate Star Trek (classic and Enterprise), but love the others that came in between. I can kick his but in StarWars trivia.

    In a nutshell, his sysadmin-y self is a bigger geek than my humanities major self.

    I love SF, but not Star Trek. Wouldn't suspect SJ's to be too fond of it, but I have no idea. I don't see any difference here between NTJ and NTP...

    I love Star Wars.

    I dislike Star Trek. It's too utopia-ish.

    Hmm... I was all ready to say 'yes', then I thought about my life as a geeky roleplayer with my AD&D books under my arm all the time. Well, under the arm of the dufus I conned into carrying them for me, but they were mine.

    And I remembered how it seemed to me most of the people in the roleplaying groups were real by the book types, most of whom were also into sci-fi. It was hard to find someone who wouldn't be completely nitpicky all the damn time and have to follow everything meticulously and they'd bore me to death spending hours lingering over details ingame whilst I was just yawning and waiting to splat someone.

    All that meticulousness and rule following doesn't seem very NT to me...

    I like Star trek.

    It's a world where frenchmen can be captain of the admiral vessel of the Federation, and where Paris is the capitol city of earth and the galaxy.
