    I love it! It's actually really good and well argued (just funny with its ESTJ righteous indignation.) And well done with the scholarship!
    Thanks! I was surprised that I got it, at the time, but I guess that meant that either

    1) I had succeeded in my goal (i.e. of making the essay-readers laugh), or
    2) they cared more about my GPA (which was pretty high) than the essay.

    Either way, it was a win! And I can't believe I didn't notice how ESTJ it was, at the time, since I definitely had heard of the MBTI (and was a TypeC forum member -- or maybe it was MBTIc?) when I wrote it.

    Haha! I've had a lot of comments on that sig. It was a sarcastic commentary on that doorslamming thread. A bit unworthy of me (I don't REALLY heart doorslamming...it's more like "very occasionally necessary, but not fun.") But I do like the sig.

    No, I've never been outside the United States. Hopefully some day I'll be able to travel more.

    There was a lot of railroad activity where I grew up; the trains didn't run terribly close to me, but train tracks run through almost my entire town, and sometimes if I was up late enough I could listen to the train whistles as I was going to sleep.

    I've lived my entire life in what used to be the heart of Southern Pacific territory. This is what's going on these days: http://www.uprr.com/aboutup/facilities/davis.shtml

    I don't know if I have any railroad questions... because I don't necessarily know a lot about them, except that they're awesome as a unit/concept/thing. I guess... why is your favorite train your favorite train?
    Well, everyone loves 4449 because she's the prettiest. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Pacific_4449

    I've always wanted to ride this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_(train) 1950s vintage Budd Company stainless steel cars (including dome cars). It's certainly much more retro and classy than anything Amtrak has.

    My favorite part, is that I ended up getting the scholarship.
    That was too funny and most awesome!

    Dear ESTJs,

    Do you consider yourself a Type A personality?

    If so, would you prefer being a relationship with someone who was Type A, Type B or someone who was a mixture of Type A and B?

    My ESTJ says he is type A (as do any tests he takes). I'm cleanly in the type B camp.

    Type A, though not extremely. I'm a 1w2, not a 8w7.

    I assume you mean a romantic relationship. I'd probably gravitate toward Type B.

    @EJCC, I love you guys (xSTJs generally ) but I do need to ask...are the vast majority of you workaholics?

    This just occurred to me based on the post I made in that NTP/SJ thread. It really does seem to be a trend with at least several xSTJs I've known (more obvious with the ESTJs, but also obvious in a different way with my ISTJ brother.)

    I kind of admire workaholics, because they get so much done, but they worry me too. I worry about them working themselves to death - and also, in terms of friendships or relationships, I kind of wonder if I'd always come low down the list after their work.

    Yes. Not Type A enough to stress out over absolutely everything, or not trust others to do things (which is my mom's problem; whereas delegating things to others isn't very stressful for me), but definitely Type A. When I'm feeling very low-stress, I can seem Type B; some people have described me as "chill" when they first met me.
    If so, would you prefer being a relationship with someone who was Type A, Type B or someone who was a mixture of Type A and B?
    I like a mixture of both. Being in a relationship with someone very type A would mean being in a relationship with someone who didn't trust me to do what I'm good at -- i.e. getting things and dealing with little details. Feeling like I'm not trusted to do what I'm good at not only hurts my self-esteem, but it makes me extremely resentful after a while. I'd rather be more detail-oriented than my SO, but besides that, it doesn't matter to me whether they're type A or B.

    Yeah, I definitely am. Not as much of a workaholic as the NFJs I know (or the type 3s!), because I know where my limits are and I'm good at saying no. But most of the time, I feel like I could be doing more, or better, or both, so I become a workaholic by striving for those two things in most aspects of my life.

    Some of that is due to being a 1 -- and I think type 1 STJs probably have more workaholic tendencies. But I think those tendencies are probably in every STJ. Consider how we all frown upon slacking!
    I kind of admire workaholics, because they get so much done, but they worry me too. I worry about them working themselves to death - and also, in terms of friendships or relationships, I kind of wonder if I'd always come low down the list after their work.
    That's interesting. I think it depends on the workaholic. When I was younger, I definitely put work higher on the priority list than I put my friends. But now that I'm more mature, and now that my friends are closer, they're higher on my list. (Also, as we know, part of why so many xxFJs are workaholics is because they can't say no to their friends -- which is a whole different type of workaholic altogether.)

    So I don't know where you stand with your workaholic friends. If they're very good friends with you, then I'm sure you're pretty high on it

    So why not just pick Type B?
