When I hear music from Vice City on my car stereo (specifially, “Pump Me Up” by Trouble Funk) I don’t know whether to be excited or scared. I was half expecting Super-Rockin’ Mister Magic to announce the next song. I’ll tell you one thing though, when that little brat came ‘round trying to sell me a $5 box of cookies again I almost took my hammer/golf club/samurai sword to his ass.
Trying to install Netscape 4.08 (for testing purposes, what else?) on my PC resulted in the computer rebooting itself. Baffling.
Tonight at work one of the guys at work that we like to call ‘Stinky’, for reasons that would become obvious if you met him, walked past some bins of rotting pigflesh and commented “Does it stink around here or is it just me?”
I almost bit my fucking tongue clean off.
Attempting that Netscape installation again revealed one thing: Windows is terrible. Installation ran fine. Don’t ask me what the hell happened the first time.
Perusing Erik’s site convinced me that a little Meyer-Briggs personality testing may be in order for yours truly; and I’m only marginally surprised (read: surprise absent) to see I am an INTP (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinker, Perceiver).
How to Spot INTPs tells me that I’m private, selective and reserved; cool, detached, and unemotional; logical, intellectual, and analytical; and casual, calm, and adaptable. Considering that I see all of those things as virtues it’s difficult to disagree; but here I was thinking that I was just a stony-faced hermit with a superiority complex! Amazing what wonders wording can weave (and alliteration).
As far as my best suited careers go; I only take issue with “Strategic Planner” — since INTP’s are supposed to be disorganised, messy, and always-under-deadline. But yes, I’ve been known to be a Computer software designer/developer, a College professor (if tutoring my entire HTML class in college on the aspects of HTML that our real lecturer failed to cover doesn’t qualify me; then I guess I’m lying), a Musician, a Web site designer, an Investigator, a Network integration specialist, and a neurologist.
Some of the above may be lies (well, Neurologist, to be specific), and several of them embellished (since my experience in all of the above fields is largely limited to personal experience and rarely equating to a “career”) so I suggest you take my words with a grain of salt. A big one.
In any event, with my personality type now clearly mapped out and “hints on interacting” with me well-defined, I can take control of my life and do… well, exactly whatever it is I’ve been doing all along. Bravo Meyer. Bravo Briggs. You’ve saved the day again.
