    I'm from Pennsylvania, and I've lived here all my life, though I've traveled up and down the east coast.
    I'm coming to the end of my teen years, and I'm wondering what I'm supposed to be doing. I'm plotting along into
    college, but it's all very tentative and sort of made-up as I go.

    I'm particularly interested in politics and psychology, which I think is a dandy combination that really allows one to understand
    things like propaganda. I do like just about anything involving human nature, so I'm interested in sociology, history, anthropology and all that good stuff.
    In general, I dabble in practically every field that falls in my sights.
    Can I get a "what-what" for cnidarians?

    That being said, I don't know what I want to do with my life, but I mostly imagine myself doing extremely unlikely things.
    Seeing as how I'll probably never be a high-ranking politician, or a super charismatic revolutionary, I've instead looked toward being
    a professor someday. Psychologist or some sort of concept designer(in just about any interesting business) is not out of the question.



    Most people seem to consider me very objective, which I consider a good thing. I try to keep my head cool and my vision clear.
    Sometimes I get angry, and it only expresses itself through my hand crushing things... Working-out is one of the ways I relieve that stress.
    I have a lot of stress...
    My family is very poor, and I lived three years in a tiny summer cottage with practically every infestation you can think of.
    My cat got a weird cancer and my dog died of an unknown disease. It was a screwed-up place. My whole parent situation wasn't great either, but that's
    enough of that...

    I'm very introverted and very intimate, so I guess I'm sort of a Romeo looking for his Juliet(as lame as that sounds).:rolli:
    So far, I haven't had much success...
    Not to be bitter, but I kind of hate society, so I'd really like to find someone and just disappear with them.
    I like nature, with space and privacy. I'm not thrilled about living in a city right now.


    I guess I'll finish by saying that an Australian girl once told me that I was "strangely fascinating" and I love that.
    That is how I always want to be perceived.

    Strangely fascinating.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Anglesey?

    Actually I had the strangest feeling when travelling in Scotland. It felt like it's familiar place to me even if I never travelled there before. (In fact it was my first time in UK. )

    I do feel united with trees and flowers....
    ...actually I just love gardening and it seems that flowers and plants do bloom in my care. Garnening is my way of meditation.

    My type at INTPc was xxxx for quite a while, and not just because I'm a super-hardcore porn enthusiast. I can't really decide what I am, and have concluded that MBTI isn't the best way to (artificially) map personality. Besides, I don't like being confined to one outfit my entire life. I find it suffocating. I chose INTP because it was the best description of me at the time I discovered the test, and when I get pushed around, I can turn into quite the asshole.

    I like flowers and trees too. They're beautiful. I discovered them while on shrooms on campus a few years ago. Subsequently, I took my digital camera and took pictures of all the massive interesting trees on campus (UCLA).

    Well well well, if it isn't PINK PIRANHA and her schizophrenic* avatar.


    *Technically, "dissociative identity disordered" would be the correct term, but schizophrenic is more colloquial and recognized.

    Haha!

    Yes it is. Especially since I thought you were using this thread as a "Goodbye MBTIc" thread at first. I thought you were pulling a Snagglepuss on us: "Exit stage right!" Which is a good idea - get out of here yourself, before they can ban you. But then I became irritated. "No!" I said "He has to stay long enough to see my one up of his signature."
    I dare ya.

    Right on! Sounds a lot like me. I majored in psych too. I eat it all up. If you're interested in politics, anthro really is a great way to go. I recently discovered zoology. The times I feel like I'm most in touch with what's really going on in the world is when I superimpose my zoological lens on people. Things like romance and courtship, aggression and politics, talking/grooming, and work/hunting start to make a lot more sense in a very deep way.

    If you push the NT's (especially ENTP and INTP) desire to map systems and "zoom out," you eventually, I think, arrive at a need to understand reality at a very fundamental level. Enter Buddhism and theoretical physics. Zoology fits in perfectly right here.

    That being said, I don't know what I want to do with my life, but I mostly imagine myself doing extremely unlikely things.

    I'm exactly where you are. (And 27 )

    Meh, seems like us NP's seem to do that quite a bit (the wondering what youre supposed to be doing). I took community college for ONE semeseter after high school. Im assuming your college is a little better, but beware the dissillusionment! I dropped out and then did clerical work until now...where finally I am going to school for medical transcription which turns out is right up my alley. Wish I woulda figured that out a few years ago! Ah well.

    Also I am from Cali and have lived in the same town my whole life, but I have done a bit of travelling which makes me feel better. I always dream about picking up and moving, but I know it wouldn't be nearly as awesome as I imagine.

    Most people seem to consider me very objective, which I consider a good thing. I try to keep my head cool and my vision clear.
    Sometimes I get angry, and it only expresses itself through my hand crushing things... Working-out is one of the ways I relieve that stress.
    I have a lot of stress...
    I am always striving to be objective...to get emotions under a bit more control, so I admire that quality! Overall it sounds like you are trying to take care of your issues, which is something that is usually not figured out until much later in life. That in itself is pretty cool.

    I'm very introverted and very intimate, so I guess I'm sort of a Romeo looking for his Juliet(as lame as that sounds).
    So far, I haven't had much success...
    Give it time, usually love comes along when you least expect! If you force it, sometimes you can end up with the wrong person. I myself have been married for 4 years on the 13th (to a fellow INFP)... makes me feel old, even though Im only 23.

    Not to be bitter, but I kind of hate society, so I'd really like to find someone and just disappear with them.
    I like nature, with space and privacy. I'm not thrilled about living in a city right now.
    Yeah I hear ya. I love nature and living in a house with a little bit of land...enough where you can pretty much do what you want without bothering anyone. As far as hating society, makes me think of this song YouTube - Desert Garden

    Good heavens, Magic. Have you been living with me all this time and I just didn't notice?

    Strangely fascinating.
    She was right, you know.

    Aye, where the Druids matriculated from! It's that island off Wales. The Druids were holed up and then the Romans marched over there, eradicated them. Part of the reason the Boudiccan revolt was so successful early on was because the bulk of the Roman forces were tied up in Anglesey exterminating Druids.

    Maybe it was one of those out-of-body things.
    I had a separate spirit, roaming elsewhere.
    Or I could spoil it by claiming coincidence.

    It's an ugly coincidence I wish we didn't share. My heart hurts for you.

    Well, you might be surprised to find that I usually recount those days with a humorous tact.

    I'm glad to hear that. I'm still trying to find my humor about mine. It's still happening so I can't laugh but in morbid fits of hysteria/overload. Being raw in the middle and burnt on the edges wears thin.
