In response to pocket lint...you're welcome. I had nothing better to do. I know that the reliability of MBTI is suspect, but I still prefer to be assigned a type. I don't know why. That's why my ST/NF problem annoys me.
The last time I was told to elaborate on an English paper, I used the F-word. I don't think that was the desired outcome. ;p
I might take that course of action if told to "elaborate" in the future

So true. I hate that they don't tell me everything they want to know. Like in History... They ask about how some civilization or warmonger fell and I tell them quite frankly it's because they had a flaw in their last battle (or whatever it was). I feel like that's *the* reason they fell. But nooooo, I have to go back 10's, 100's or 1000's of years and explain that previous societies had ingrained this I-don't-know-what into the current one and that the present leader had a fight with his best friend when they were 8 years old and *somehow* that lead to the ultimate downfall of some dude. I just don't think that way, and the question certainly didn't tell me to do so. D:

That makes me crazy too. I was once forced through one of the worst compulsory cultural enrichment courses EVER. I didn't mind the subject of human history and the history of technology. Sounded great. However, the woman teaching it had NO CLUE what she was talking about. I had never before experienced boredom so extreme that I felt my IQ rolling backward with eyes as I lapsed into a coma! She ended every sentence with "... and many other technological advances".
I heard one of the rednecks from my diesel class at the back of the class drawl through a lip full of tobacco, "What the hell IS this?!" out of sheer confusion. The guy who was meant to keep me awake fell asleep constantly. And the only way I got through the class with my sanity (it was that inane and devoid of ANY factual relevance, and normally I can find something interesting in even the most boring of subjects) was because my ENTP punk friend kept grinning at me from across the aisle, sticking his hand up and asking the teacher a string of daft questions like "Excuse me! Dr. Scoggins! Did you say the cotton gin? Does that make gin out of cotton? I missed that part and I want to be VERY VERY detailed. Start from the beginning."
