Then bore us with something else about you! Surely there's more to you than your career, why you joined MBTIc, and your hobbies. You could, for instance, post about all the bad things about you! Why do people get annoyed with you? What have you always dreamed of doing, but never had the guts to do? Is that a rash on your arm, or are you just glad to see me?
Okay, Hello! My name is Sandy, and as nocapszy will sarcastically point out... I am quite the INFP! (What can I say? I can admit it. :rolleyes2: ) I am probably the oldest person on this board. I am 42-year old professional at a electric/gas distribution company in Illinois and am a very happy 42-year old! My teens were crap, and so were my 20s (except when I had my children at age 20 and 22), and my 30s were bearable. My 40s, however, have been fabulous!
My dreams are: going skydiving, living by the ocean, following my favorite musical artists when I can, painting, singing, visiting my many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and my 100-year old obachan (I gotta hurry!) in Okinawa someday, visiting Germany, and being a pastor's wife and grandmama to many grandbabies!
I turned down a full academic scholarship to marry my sweetheart of 4-years (my childlren's father) because he didn't want me to go (I know, I'm an idiot). And after he couldn't control his drug and alcohol addictions (and 2 stints in rehab), we divorced after 5-years of marriage (we have, however, remained friends for the boy's sake). Thankfully, when he turned 41, he finally got his vices under control.
Currently oldest son (22) lives with me (going to school & working) and youngest INTP son (20) lives at Travis AFB in Cali. I don't know what my oldest son's MBTI is, because he won't take the test. I am guessing he is an ISTJ.
I am as serious as I am goofy. The goofy part of me only comes out to people I feel close with. I am a serious music lover. If I irritate people, nobody has told me yet.
I have been the ruler of my household for 16-years and plan to marry my current INTP sweetie in about 2-3 years. I have to make it to 20-years with my company first before I quit. They won't let me retire though; they say that I need 13 more years before I can even consider it. Bummer.
I'm glad you met me, Edahn!

question for you- why have you been a member for so long but I've only seen you around recently?
I found a home at INTPc and started posting there a lot. A lot a lot. This place is a good change of pace. It's definitely a lot more squishy. I feel like I'm about to be hugged at all times, which is okay, but can get a little too sappy for me. INTPc, on the other hand, is more calculated and cold, where people get criticized for being emotional. I prefer some of both. If I hang out in both, maybe the temp will balance out.
My first passion in life was astronomy. It was my obsession starting around age 13 onwards. I self-taught myself music and ended up majoring in that instead. I was always out of step because of a different background, but finished all the degrees through the terminal one in composition. I wrote a number of pieces inspired by astronomy - of course. I earn a partial living teaching and performing, but my next step is to manage some type of work that has sustaining income. Right now I have too many paths available that don't seem to lead anywhere. I'm not as ambitious as I should be. I've become too good at letting go. I don't play games well, especially those that involve power plays. Except for that I am rather adaptable. I value the ability and skills to be able to survive.
Oh, and I used to be very limber and have reachieved my stretchiness forwards, but for some reason not backwards. My next goal is to be able to touch my toes to my forehead backwards like I used to do. I still have a way to go.
