    I may not have 'caught' you that way but it sure sparked inspiration enough that I altered it into my sig below lol
    Haha I'm flattered

    Well I'm glad you see the hidden practicality in my decision on how to take in knowledge. I guess the problem comes when someone asks a straightforward question like 'What are you educating yourself to be?', I don't really have an answer. The knowledge I strive for has a potential for a practicality I do not see yet, which gives the unfortunate possibility it might never be practical. But that doesn't concern me, but it scares others who have a concern for me.

    My plan is exactly what you recommended concerning money and living... make a little, spend even less, and save save save... while mooching as much as possible. Unfortunately I don't live with them anymore, but that hasn't inhibited my ability to mooch for the time being. Once I get out of school it'll most likely a bit different.

    And now have me afraid I'll annoy you in the future, so now I have to be extra careful...

    Welcome. I've a budding interest in psychology right now. It's very fascinating... Just learned in class this morning about how the human brain has been set for assuming the sun is overhead, without accounting for head tilt- probably cause it's faster and convenient and was generally useful for our ancestors, etc. Is that sort of what you are studying? Origin of behavior/brain structures/processes?

    I never know what to say when people ask what I want to be either. It's pressure, pressure since you were 5 and can't read.

    SB is a pit.

    At least this forum can occupy your time while the misery that is Santa Barbara lurks just outside your door.

    What idiot ever said INTJs have to improve themselves? We don't need to improve!

    Haha... what I personally find interesting about you INTJ's isn't that you're constantly improving yourselves, but the natural events in life that aren't fully experienced due to that conscious decision to always improve yourselves.

    That MUST be a horribly persistent paradox about life that drives you people crazy

    I see the hidden in everything Makes think bitter (or not) INFJs would make great conspiracists.

    Now, that being said. :steam: Me afraid? Afraid of what? How'll you annoy me? What'll make me afraid? Don't tell me that it was a slip of grammar or I'll cite Freud or sight intent for Fraud! INFJs see all!! Gah! I'm going to envision a thousand scenarios, damn you!

    It's fun being deliriously me. So, YOU be afraid and extra extra careful in the "future"
