    Default Your requisition for an additional INTP has been fulfilled

    Hi, folks. My name is apparently Ionia, and I'm an INTP. A few random facts that may elucidate my nature to those of you who take a passing interest in such things:

    - I've taken various MBTI-related tests over the last 15 years or so, and every time but once, I've come up INTP (once was ENTP for some reason I cannot fathom).

    - I'm female, though not, a posteriori, especially feminine.

    - I'm an actuary and greatly enjoy it.

    - My partner is an INFP. We have no social lives and our apartment is covered in random belongings (mainly books and computers) to an average depth of fifteen inches, but we're happy nonetheless.

    - I grew up in Vermont but have lived in San Francsico for the last eleven years.

    - I think MBTI is a useful method of categorization, if only in a tautological sense.

    So, hi everyone

    Hey, welcome. I used to live in San Francisco, but no more.

    Categorisation if only in a tautological sense ? You have to explain that to me by chance

    Hello, Ionia.

    The requisition you received sent you to the wrong place, it was supposed to send you to INTPc. We're overflowing with INTPs here, we're only recruiting Sensors and ENxJs actively.

    However, since you're clearly very intelligent and articulate, we'll bend the rules for you... just this once.

    So, what has being an actuary been like for you? Would you care to tell us about your experiences in that role?

    I get what you mean about books, computers, and no social life. Seems to be a lot of that going around these days.

    I haven't found MBTI to be useful, but I've found the archetypes intriguing, much as in astrology.

    Was the adjustment from East coast to West coast culture a difficult transition for you?

    Is this like a WoW guild thing and you don't need another hunter?

    Yay, I'm worthy of rule bending!

    It's quite enjoyable and full of exciting challenges -- my two main functions are to take several billion inchoate numbers and explain to people what they actually mean and to point out when people have made unjustified assumptions, mathematical errors, and other mistakes (and my tertiary function is to display xkcd comics in my office). And there's more chaos and mistakes every week, so I rarely get bored. And unlike in my previous incarnation as a code monkey, employment is actually pretty stable -- I no longer get laid off every nine months because the company has only three-quarters of a product and no revenue (why yes, I was part of the whole dot-com fiasco, since you ask -- and yes, I realize that makes me old

    This is the internet! I'm sure we've got a disproportionate share.

    Nah, Vermont and San Francisco are both filled with hippies, so not much change
