Greetings! Hajimemashite! Mae Govannen! Cheers to fellow kindred spirits. Is anyone looking to make a new friend? I am a quintessential INTJ, though I lean toward INTP. Somehow I have managed to avoid becoming the crass troll that typifies many INTJs online. I play nice, and I am interested in understanding other's viewpoints and perceptions on Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Here is my bio from another site:
I am an introspective and intellectual person (INTJ) though I have a sentimental streak as well. I was raised in the Chicago suburbs. I have spent much of my young life contemplating many things regarding cosmology, philosophy (and theology), psychology, and the postmodern era. I enjoy losing myself in creative imaginary worlds which mirror our own only insomuch as they speak to the human condition.
Beyond philosophy and my career in astronautical engineering, I enjoy losing myself in creative imaginary worlds which mirror our own only insomuch as they speak to the human condition. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy literature. I am a student of Japanese language and culture (including Anime and the ancient board game Go). I enjoy fencing (foil and sabre).
For those who have ever seen an episode of Star Trek TNG, friends and acquaintances have commented on how Vulcan I can be. However, I tend to have far more in common with Captain Picard (ENTJ). I admire the depth of restrained, dutiful passion in Jean-Luc amidst the strength of his reason. Though I doubt I will live up to such an image, I would rather live after his example than acquiesce to the social norms which so often lead to cynicism. At other times, I can be more like Lt. Cmdr. Data. People have also commented on my infrequent playful side which surfaces in the form of wit and keen perceptivity.
Current favorite book: Lord of the Rings (with Ender's Game a close second)
Current favorite film: Hauru no Ugoku Shiro (Howl's Moving Castle)
Current favorite music: Hammered Dulcimer
Current favorite TV: Reruns of Star Trek TNG
Current INTJ preoccupation:
Social dynamics between types and the means of successfully building meaningful social connections in a postmodern, pluralistic context.

"How absurd men are! They never use the liberties they have, they demand those they do not have. They have freedom of thought, they demand freedom of speech." - Soren Kierkegaard
