    Sorry, didn't see this until now.

    I was referring to the one at Murray State:
    ISTP - Introverted Thinking with Sensing

    Of course, I picked the one that fits the best. I'm not sure how the other descriptions would stack up.

My son's teacher sent home this new Home Work Policy form stating that if the kid doesn't hand in the homework 3 times per marking period, then he gets a Behavior form , and if he gets 3 of those he gets a Pink Slip which needs to be signed by parent, yada yada yada. Please sign on the dotted line to acknowledge your understanding of this new policy.

    Well, I was so insensed by this I had to stop myself from blasting the teacher, principal and school board with an email. I sucked it up and signed it since I'm the same person who told his teacher on the first day of school "oh, if my son doesn't do what he needs to - please contact me ASAP." But this "policy" really freaked me out. Just what we need - another piece of beaurocracy standing in the way.
    That sounds really familiar. My son has a "planner" that his teacher sends home every day. Its purpose is apparently to indicate due projects or upcoming tests, but more often than not it's blank. However, I am supposed to sign it every day. Yes, signing a blank page ANGRIES UP THE BLOOD.

    And the students are allowed two times that their parents don't sign it, and if it is more days than that, they have to do laps on the track outside instead of play on the playground at recess.

    I mean, I know they're trying to teach following directions, I get that. But :steam: grrrrrr. I guess it's good to teach the kids that their jobs when they are adults will most likely involve useless repetitive tasks, but holy crap did I have to fight my instincts to not disrupt the "parent orientation" night by asking just what practical purpose signing blank pieces of paper did, and how an arbitrary punishment like laps at recess had any damn thing to do with it!

    Yep we have a planner that needs to be signed daily also, though I don't think that there is a punishment if you forget. Last year, there was some consequence but I can't recall what that was.

    I think you should just buy a stamp that says "Jeffster" and then stamp all the school days from now through June in the planner. That way your son won't be doing laps - completely ridiculous. Arrgghh!

    Thank god I didn't have these sorts of things at my school....I would have been continuously in trouble. (Because arbitrary tasks and stupid punishments are two things I never obeyed/didn't care enough to remember to do.)

    You should teach your kid to forge your signature. Might be the most important thing he learns in school.
    No offense.

    I forged my dad's signature several times when I was in primary school.

    When he later found out, the ENTx went damn near catatonic and proceeded to call me a liar and a cheat.

    I think that's quite possibly the best idea I've heard all week...

    I'm pretty sure he'll learn that on his own if he's an SP.

    Yeah, I can't be stunting the boy's growth by babying him.

    Well, admittedly I taught myself that too.
    No offense.
