    Default INTP Guy says hello

    So I have finally decided to stop just reading these blogs for the last 6 months and finally start to post something. Little about my self, I'm in the Army (though not for much longer) and I'm born in North Carolina. My stepfather was in the Army (I didn't join on his behalf) and we moved around alot. Mom left when I was little and stepfather was pretty useless so I spent most of my focus on school growing up. I enjoy Math the most and Science (particularly Physics) is a close second, so I intend to major in Math for college once I get out of the Army and have enough money to go to school. I'm interested in any kind of discussion that has to do with Ideology (even the feeling stuff...though I mostly listen on those lol). I will do the best I can to respond to communique. I hope to enhance my knowledge as much as possible while on here and have some fun with individuals interested in a good conversation.

    Hey Matthew. Welcome to the forums.

    What do you think about the Army? I know a couple NTs who said it was pretty dreadful.

    Default What I think about the Army

    Its not bad...if you're a SJ. As an INTP it is pretty hard as there is so much schedule and requirement to fit into a large group of people you hardly know just long enough so those people change. I prefer to have a more relaxed schedule and perfer to spend a lot of time to get to know people then develop long term relationships if I even develop relations with someone. So in the long run it is not my cup of tea but it gets me the college money I need and is a good bullet on a resume for any potential SJ employers I may encounter.

    Hi Matthew Welcome, glad to have you with us.

    Thanks for your service. My bro. in-law got back for the second time in September, thank goodness.

    Glad to hear he got back safely and had loved ones when he returned. I myself have been on 3 deployments totaling 33 months in Iraq and Afghanistan so I know how rough it can be and how it can be worse for the ones who have no one at home to talk to or come home to.

    Hey Matthew!
    And there's an introduction post with a poll. Yay! People should be forced to do that.
    But what about reading a couple of books simultaneously? I'm a promiscuous reader and don't want to commit myself to just one book at a time
