Hi. I'm not sure if there's a certain protocol for introductions (I guess the act of introducing oneself is protocol in and of itself), but anyway. I decided to finally join this site after lurking for perhaps 5 or so months. I'm reasonably interested in Meyers-Briggs in both theory and application, in part because it strongly resembles a "theory" of personality I sort of developed when I was young (12?). The initial purpose of my joining is admittedly selfish, though my curiosity exceeds my desire to attempt to adhere to some arbitrarily imposed metric of selflessness. The reason is that I'm having trouble typing myself. Yeah, I know that typing isn't exactly an exact science, and is more or less a hypothetical abstraction that attempts to roughly explain the drivers of individual behavior, and that it's difficult to fully assess someone's personality through a single post, but I'm still curious about opinions. So I guess a description is in order. I tend to be pretty quiet and low energy. I have very many interests and can find almost anything fascinating if I think about it or can understand it. I love computers, philosophy and engineering and spend most of my time reading or developing code. I love discussions (read: debates) and parties, and like to "cut-loose" every once in a while. I generally can't stand socialising with strangers and will typically keep my conversations short, though the opposite is the case for people I know and trust. I love thinking of possibilities and generating new ideas to the point off compulsion and I'll often follow through with it if it's feasible (or convince someone else to:P). Oh, I also like long walks on the beach (not really).
