    Management, btw, sounds like hell on earth!

    I am curious about your enneagram, I would guess 9 for you too. Or at least a strong 9-wing (so 8 or 1).
    The test I took says I'm probably a 1, or a 5w6 with wings (makes me sound like a pad). 1w9 was a close second.

    Because you guys are just so entertaining! The majority of you are being serious or have the best dark sense of humor,... And I find myself cracking up the entire time.

    well, that has been true enough too. but it's not really an argument about binary all/noneism, at least in my mind. there's been diversity in that sense around here for at least however long it's been since i first joined. it's only been more recently that i've found myself wondering how come my primary experience of this place has come to be about 94% Meh.

    Without them asking questions and engaging us, this place would be far less intellectually stimulating.
    i guess it depends on what stimulates you.

    You have a gift for making his brain sound like soup. Delicious Darcy brain soup. Can you write the menus for my funeral?

    Wait, take that back. Can I send somebody else's body in? I want to keep mine.

    How bout I pick you up 3 store mannequins and we call it even. Deal? I'll even throw in some rad, stylistic clothing on one of them as a gesture of good faith.
    As long as the mannequins have brains I can use for my funeral soup, then they can have ten arms and one sock on for all I care.

    @Swede - Interesting. I was writing from a viewpoint of sarcasm and generalization since saving someone from their own personality isn’t something that makes sense to me, but yes, I am attracted to the idea of people who usually keep to themselves opening up to me. Not necessarily even introverts, but just people who are know how to keep to themselves. Privacy is such a turn on.

    I guess that also ties into what @FePa and @PoppaX were saying. I’ve been the centre of attention before and I don’t know how to handle it. My close INFJ friend is better at handling that than I am, and she’s definitely an introvert. I tend to spill my guts to people I barely know, but she's pretty controlled and calculated, which is something I admire. Also, she’s one of the most popular kids in her school, not because she parties a lot or does the extrovert thing that’s supposed to make you popular, but because she’s got a quiet, steely confidence to her that someone more extroverted probably wouldn’t exude. On the (increasingly frequent) occasions that she does let her guard down, I do kind of feel like I’ve been let in on some kind of intimate secret.

Being a good INTJ, I researched the hell out of it and discovered more than a few reviews that summed up like "It was soooooo great. It helped pull me out of my shell and become more outgoing! Yay team!" I'm doing my level best to keep an open mind. But damn, it's tough when you go into it feeling like there's a target on your back. Whatever happened to the strong silent type who leads by example and doesn't need to make a spectacle of himself to get people's attention?
    Ugh. Whenever people pressure me into changing, I rebel, for better or for worse. Seriously, people need to stop using that tactic, even if they mean well.

    This statement has a decided "Jedi mind trick" feel to it.

    I'm lurking here because my husband is INTJ and I want to know you guys more so I could understand him better ( I even helped him to understand himself better with some advices and discussions on this board ;-)) So thank you!

    But no I don't fancy INTJs as a whole at all. I knew several INTJs girls with whom I ended friendships.

    Actually I think you may fancy that we fancy you ;-). It may be true here because of all the Keirsey theories but not in real life. IMO, ENFPs who are not aware of MBTI, especially in real life, are social butterflies who often goes out with other E and/or F types.

    Younger ENFPs may also like the confidence of the INTJs, because he/she could count on the INTJ. Younger ENFPs can see them as really complementary. I liked IXXJs men a lot when I was younger, but with age, we know that confidence comes only from the inside. And being in couple with a confident INTJ will not make yourself confident.

    Brains? Sure, lemme see what I can fi-

    Wait a minute. Brains?!? Oh no... I thought they were foolish. "Why are so many people obsessed with zombies," I said. "Such a silly fascination," I said.

    Now I see it before my very eyes! Please don't eat those. I use them to see things.

    ZOMBIE ATTACK!!!

    HIDE THE WOMEN AND THE CHILDREN. CALL SCOTLAND YARD. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

    OR MAYBE... oops, still shouting. OR maybe.. ok, still shouting a bit there, my bad. Kinda hard to turn off. Ehem, HARUMPH. OK.

    Or maybe, we could coexist with the zombies. We could have our womenz breed with them and have little biracial zombie babies. It would be PERFECT! The human race will be saved! Heehee!

    Oh no... what's that sou-

    SHIT.

    SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT

    NONONO
