Hi everyone! I have hung out at the INFP, INTJ, and INTP forums for a couple of months each, but I don't think I am extremely any of those "types" to feel comfortable enough to post in any of them. Anyway, a cool INTP from INTPc directed me here. I have known and researched the MBTI for a year now, and I can't believe that I haven't stumbled upon this forum before today!
Anyway, here are some things about me to break the ice :P
-I prefer to draw or do things to communicate ideas rather than write or talk about it.
-I am willing to travel the world to go on every roller coaster there is!
-I can't stop looking up random things on the internet. For example: I was wondering why sometimes the closest entrance to a building from the parking lot have signs that read "use other door", and why emergency exit doors have signs that say "do not open"... even though I had an idea of why, I just had to search up 'emergency exit doors' anyway.
Here is what I found from a wikipedia page on emergency exit doors
Fire fighters have cited overzealous guards who told people during a fire that they are not allowed to use emergency exits. The practice is actually quite common in the absence of fires, as well. Some skyscrapers have stairwells with standard emergency exit signs on each door, which then lock upon closing. Users of these stairwells are trapped, whether they know or do not know that the only door that opens from the inside is the one on the ground floor. A further problem becoming very common in the USA (2005) is that retail stores at night close one of their main entrance/exits through makeshift heavy metal barriers, signage, paper notes, or junk placed in front of the exits. Some actually lock their exits. A large array of signage and mechanical exit systems have also been devised, including signage that says contradictorily, "This is not an exit," "Do not use this exit," or warning users that a heavy penalty will be assessed for non-emergency use. Some systems do not allow the exit to be opened until the user signals the intention to exit (through a button or lever) for some amount of time, such as 20 seconds. It is also common for these exits to remain completely locked until somebody tests them.
-A while ago, I was wondering about thread count in linens, and if having a higher thread count necessarily means that it is softer. Then, I actually went to a Bed, Bath, and Beyond store to test thread counts for myself, LOL.
-I love reading. I will read almost anything in front of me.
-Recently, I have started reading works by several philosophers. I don't know why I am attracted to existentialism.
-I am deeply interested in philosophy, but I haven't taken any philosophy courses yet. Where should I start?!
Okay, that's it! Before the list gets even longer...
