INFP.

Quote

An INFP friend describes the inner conflict as not good versus bad, but on a grand scale, Good vs. Evil. Luke Skywalker in Star Wars depicts this conflict in his struggle between the two sides of "The Force." Although the dark side must be reckoned with, the INFP believes that good ultimately triumphs.


May the force be with you.

Fight the dark side, I must? Fills me with awe, that does.

INTJ...cause that's just the introverted way I intuitively think as I judge ya'll.

I love a good tarot reader - the art of cold reading can produce some pretty spooky results. Of course, they're reading you, not the cards.

I'm an INTP, but test as INTJ occasionally, based on my mood. I am generally pretty opposed to these types of tests, but I have always been interested by Jung's theories (he was an INTP, if I'm not mistaken, so that might explain it). One of the things that really stood out to me is that INTPs are much more concerned with discovering the solution to a problem (or discovering that they have nearly discovered the solution) than they are with actually solving it. Even with programming, I find that once I've figured out all of the *hard* parts of solving some problem, I tend to lose interest in actually following it to its conclusion. Implementation always feels a bit tedious at that point.

Yeah, I heard about that from your girlfriend.

Wait! Has the mocking portion started? Didn't want to miss that!

Right, now we need an Enneagram test. Because, if nothing else, Gurdjieff beats the crap out of Jung when it comes to creepy looking Euro dudes. Like Crowley and Dali's love child...

A tarot deck, Rider-Waite preferred for instant recognition, is a great thing to have around. Playing card games is quite fun. Solitaire with the extra card is also good. Then, if someone should ask what you're doing, you must gravely say something like, "Ascertaining fortune's design. Shh, someone could die."

I'm still, frankly, irked by the "intuition" thing. Clearly not what Jung had in mind.

I wonder if it's possible to induce a case of glaucoma. You'd see some real pretty auras that way.
