    Default knock knock

    You know how you stare at a word too long and it just looks wrong? That's how I feel about 'knock' right now.

    BTW, I should have done this a while back. But I didn't. However, the dear Distinguished Professor Emeritus is in DC for the rest of the week and what did he leave in my inbox? Not A Friggin Thing. So you may be seeing a lot of me for a few days.

    Anyway. Hi, my name is Mary and I'm an INTP. First took Keirsey as part of an office team-building exercise about 13 years ago. After sending in the paper forms, I researched on the Internet and found the online test. By the time the HR speaker arrived to give us our results, I'd convinced over half the staff to take the test and type themselves. Then he got my type wrong at the seminar and I was forced to correct him. OK, so nobody twisted my arm but I was just too strongly tempted to resist.

    I'm 48 and live in Albany, Oregon - aka The Grass Seed Capital of the World. Seriously, there's even a sign as you drive into town. If you don't have allergies when you move here, you will before you leave. Down the road a piece is Corvallis - home of Oregon State University. I work in the Chemistry Department near the organic research labs surrounded by signs stating CAUTION - TOXIC CHEMICALS, FLAMMABLE SOLVENTS, CANCER SUSPECT AGENTS. I don't often get company up here.

    Needless to say, I spend five days a week literally surrounded by NTs.

    I have one child, a son who is currently living in Maine, and three cats - which is one too many.

    Oddly enough, I pulled my ID out of a funding proposal I was typing for "Inhibitors of Uptake and Transport of Monoaminergic Neurotransmitters." I wasn't in the mood to think up anything clever and norepinephrine won out over dopamine and serotonin.

    Cats are also tempermental if you show them the wrong kind of attention.

    Not that I would ever do that.
