    Default [INFP] English Male - Prone to Bouts of Contemplation and Book Devouring

    Hello all,

    I've already made my first few posts since I wanted to get stuck in but I thought I'd make an introduction nevertheless!

    I've just finished my Masters degree in English Literature (surprising, I know) and live in London. I joined the forum because I thought that there were some interesting discussions regarding MBTI etc. and everyone seems to know their stuff.

    My main hobbies revolve around exercise in some way, such as football (or soccer for all you obstinate Americans and bewildered Aussies!), some cycling, and the usual gym/running. I've been a bit slack lately since I've finished my degree; I'm trying to get back into running but it's just so bloody cold at the moment.

    I love books, obviously, and specialise in Early Modern English Drama, particularly depicitions of Moors and Turks in Elizabethan and Jacobean plays. I'm interested in politics too, although I shun most kinds of fervant activism because I find the "leaders" of these groups to be corruptible/corrupted extroverts who just do my head in with their demagogy.

    Anyway, that's about it. I'd now like to invite any questions from the floor...

    Cheers!

    How comes every INFP here is studying (English) Literature? I feel so lonely studying something different :P

    What are you studying? German literature?

    I studied Business at college when I was 17. I did really well at it but it wasn't really for me. That being said, I found business planning quite interesting, particularing market analysis, trends etc. INFPs would make good analysts, I think.

    Welcome INFP from the fair island of Albion!
    Nope, no questions, Adasta has done his duty, Adasta can go (that one was too easy!)

    Where did you get that nick? You´re neither the Antique Dalers Association of St Agustine nor a bisphosphonate, I pressume...
