    Do you have the....

    hermit...Yep. Or I prefer to have large blocks of time alone. I find personal interaction with others taxing, even when it is pleasant. This seems to contradict my drive to "help" people...friends in need, students, strangers..I feel the drive to help but when that is done, I don't want to be compensated or praised just leave me alone now...

    non-conformist...to most societal expectations, yes. I seem to have an inverted sense of what is important to my comtemporaries...well most of them anyway. To the point that I cannot comprehend what motivates (or seems to) the public. Hence my troubles as an entrepeneur....

    wonderer...I am regularly distracted and intrigued by all sorts of phenomena...and curious about the why and wherefore...it is sort of like a drug that takes me away from thinking about immediate problems...but does refresh me...

    philosopher tendencies...Yep. It is a self indulgence that I find hard to control.
    Patriotism is the last refuge to which a scoundrel clings...Steal a little and they throw you in jail, steal a lot and they make you a king

    Hermit - Semi-hermit. I can spend a week in my flat reading novels and with little interpersonal contact. I can easily live a month in a cabin by myself.
    Non-conformist - YES
    Wonderer - I suppose. I can spend 5 hours on wikipedia reading about seemingly irrelevant stuff. Has happened A LOT. You know, where you start off reading about Organisational Behaviour and several hours later, you're reading about the mating habits of Lyrebirds.
    Philosopher - To some extent.

    hahahahaha! I do that too! I'm such an addict when it comes to useless information that just simply fascinates me at the time. And then I wonder later why I just spent several hours reading about something that never up until now interested me.

    I know! And the funny thing is I don't store the facts like an Si would and eventually forget half of what I read. It's just for the enjoyment derived at the time from finding out that, for instance, shrews are the only rodents with a venomous bite or, the capacity of a Boeing Dreamliner in standard and all-economy configuration.

    Yeah, exactly, only I find I forget bits and pieces of it but retain other bits (usually the really bizarre bits), so years later when something reminds me of a thing I've read, when I try to talk about it, I sound completely idiotic.

    I didn't know shrews had a venemous bite! Thank you, now I'm going to imagine what a shrew attack looks and feels like all morning!

    Yes I sometimes envy that Si recall of facts and details, I will read something and usually retain the general "gist" of what I'm reading but nothing very specific, although like Sarah said the really bizarre things I discover tend to pop into my head every now and then, other people are like "How the heck do you know that?" and I have no idea I just know I read it somewhere.

    Hermit - Only about once a month. I am a social butterfly for the most part. I think my E is well defined.

    Non-conformist - I think I conform just enough to get by. Most of the time I am trying to gauge how far I can push boundaries, and then I push them exactly that far all the time.

    Wonderer - If you mean daydreaming and the like, not really. I tend to wonder about what I am going to have for dinner, or what kind of beer I want to drink tonight, or how the hell I ended up with two different colored socks today.

    Philosopher - Nah, I leave philosophy to the pros. I don't ever think about why I am, I just am. Usually if I want to know how something works, I take it apart, and since I can't do that to people (legally), I don't pay attention to it.

    hermit:
    I need my own space, but at the same time, I love being around people, as long as the athmosphere is relaxed and free. I don't see myself as a hermit, but when I'm with people, I am not so interested in getting to know them as I am in having fun and connecting on a practical level. But that's very important for me. If I spend too much time alone I get depressed.

    non-conformist:
    I don't know. In a way I conform, but I'm probably more relaxed about it than some SJ-types

    wonderer:
    No, When I was younger I thought that I was a wonderer, but I have realized that I am not. I'm more interested in the experience.

    philosopher:
    Well, people THINK that I am a philosopher, but really, I'm not. Sometimes I can say smart things, but that is a result of feeling.
