    Welcome, and may I say that idiosyncrasy is one of my favorite words to say out loud?

    I'm also enjoying the discussion on the raw foods and vegan diets. I've eliminated both meat and dairy from my diet for months at a time and it did not work well for me (I think my body's use to my high dairy diet, haha). However, I'm always willing to try new things =).
    I also have a pretty adventurous palate, so I really hesitate in giving things up, but I love being able to tell the direct connection between what I put in my body and how my body works for me.

    Hey, Laine. Is your use name a play off of laine and intp? Kind of like TenINsFJ?

    It was fun talk to you on Vent. You are unique, even forn an INTP.

    Thanks for accepting the invite to the Sac. meetup. You Tenins, and I (and whoever else in Nor. Cal. wants to come) should have fun. Safeway is right down the street from me, so if you have requests for food to keep refrigerated, I can stock-up. I'm not vegan, but not a big meat-eater.

    You know, I haven't read any of those...asnd they all seem interesting. Have you noticed a surge in neuroscince books lately in the bookstores in the area?

    I think this is the sign of being mutli-talented. I just ended up having a couple majors and a couple minors.

    So, yeah, I am (currently) a psych. major.
    Like I said, multi-talented.

    I read this particular book of Anderson's a couple of years ago--a very interesting read. It seems to talk about polymaths like us (well maybe you and laine, more than me). Michaelangelo studied anatomy and was a decent engineer. Davinci may have had more inventive engineering ideas than Edison.

    See there aren't really "left-brained" and "right-brained" people. The smart ones use both.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Welcome. Yes, I quite enjoyed "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close"...though I don't know if I'd call it *fun.* I found it emotionally hard to read but I loved all the offsetting wit and cleverness. ; )

    Hey another INTP runner!

    Between the math, the running, the carrying food everywhere, and the interview story, you sound A LOT like me...

    I've been meaning to finish that one! So far, I've only read parts of it... but yes, I like that one (so far) also.
