I'm thinking of acting out some of my everyday conversations and filming them. But I need to dye my hair and I can't be bothered. So maybe next weekend?
in terms of temperament though, he's pretty even and easy-going and equable, which is kind of the reason why i prefer to keep my little visual thumbnail analogies to myself. i mean, the ux woman has a facial structure that puts me unbearably in mind of the most obese and unappealing guinea pig i've ever seen, but she's nothing like that as a human being. if i said it out loud i think that her feelz would be hurt.
Today I was talking with a classmate, who is yet another ENFP who has befriended me (the second in two semesters, they're the only ones who can be bothered with my quietness).
ENFP: Sorry my story was so weird.
Me: No, it was good. It was unexpected.
ENFP: I just find writing stories so hard, you know? I have all these ideas, but they won't all fit.
Me: At least you never run out of ideas.
ENFP: Yeah, true, but they make my stories so random.
Me: To be fair, it was a story about a water droplet on a journey. That's pretty random already.
ENFP: Oh yeah...
gabby dev lead disappears for a good long while in the heart of the day.
then he comes back.
gdl: i'm back!
new dev: good workout?
gdl: well . . . what it's doing is kicking my butt. which is good i guess if you're one of the many who want my butt kicked.
*conversation ensues. gdl has gone and signed onto a team for a tough mudder race*
new dev, fellow south african, old enough to be ex-army from there: tough mudder? wat vir 'n ding is 'n tough mudder race?
*gdl explains. naturally a website's produced. i drift over and hang from the cubicle wall*
new dev: *sounds of delight and excitement and joy* i should do this! *click* jirre! *click* eish! *etc etc* man, this is GREAT!
gdl: you're very welcome to join us, if you'd like to.
new dev: ag i'd love to . . . *more clicking and eishing* yeah, totally, if . . . hey, this would be a great team-building exercise!
me: oh fuck off.
i thought i spoke quietly, but the gabby dev lead heard me.
I didn't know there's another INTJ guy back in high school. Well, I already suspected but I never talked to him that much so I wasn't really sure. A few hours ago I happened to chat him via messenger.
Me: Why do you talk so short?
Me: But people would feel inferior.
Him: The point of communication is the message delivered.
Me: People also complain the inferior thing to me. It feels weird to have someone talking this way too.
Me: I'm curious about what makes someone like you curious. Do I sound random?
Him: Yes. You're aimless from the first time you chat me.
Me: Am I wasting your time? (talking about efficiency)
Him: Not really. I got nothing important to do. Are you normally like this? You ask someone but then forget about what you ask and end up chatting?
Him: Are you sure you'll survive chatting with me?
Me: That's what I want to find out.
Me: Am I disturbing you?
Him: Yes. But I'm kind. Don't worry.
Me: But sure I must be clueless if I want to chat with you later.
Him: Just find a topic, then we'll talk.
Me: What if what I'm curious about is annoying to you?
Him: Then I'll change the topic.
Me: Why electronics?
Him: That's the most interesting.
Me: What is it about?
Him: From what I learn, we create something then we create the program to make it work. It's about imagination.
Me: What about others? Aren't they about imagination too?
Him: Information could be about it too but I want something hands on.
Me: Whoa that sounds ambigous lol jk.
Him: Is my choice of word wrong?
Me: No. Well, the message is there but it depends on how people interpret it.
Me: How important is imagination to you?
Him: It is important indeed.
Him: Wait. Let me think. I don't know how to say this. Well, imagination is imagination. It's how we imagine something. If we want to create a robot, we must know the structure which firstly comes from imagination. But it can't be that free as calculation is considered.
Me: You're too scientifical to talk about imagination ;)
It lasted more than 3 hours, by the way. I wanted to make him talk, so I remembered certain ways that another guy had tried to make me talk since the only thing he likes is science which I'm not into. He's a cool guy though.
this took place 10 years ago after a exhausting week at work, my arthritis was going full force [every joint in my body] in a packed local bar and I was not feeling social that night, so why the fuck did I go out that night you might ask ? just bored and did not want to be home
me at bar waiting to be served when approached by female 38-42 years of age
hi, my name is .......... how are you
me with the infamous INTJ death glare - they call me dick [not my name but my title]
she after babbling about other things- you know if I brought a guy home and my dog did not like him I would not date him
me in total bewilderment- so you have one of those magical dogs
she now with a puzzled look , think Scooby doo after fred tells scoob he must sniff out the axe wielding serial killer- magical dog?
me- yea, he must be magical if he can sniff souls and be able to judge if some one is evil or not
she just walks away at that point and I just left to go home figuring the gods were not pleased with me

It's just funny stories about anything involving tech support
In meeting with boss and colleagues:
Boss: What about ideation? How are we going forward with the processing of new business ideas?
Me: I think this has been historically managed terribly to be honest.
Me: These ideas seem to fall in a black hole; people get thanked but nobody ever helps to actually work on the quality to make it workable.
Me: I've heard people say "Well, I'll post it for the fifth time then" with the latest request for ideas.
Me: Are you managing that yourself?
