I've been an avid reader all my life. I'm planning on going into the editing field. And if I remember correctly, some of the books lying around on my bedroom floor are Words That Work, by Frank Luntz; 100 Words That Every High School Graduate Should Know, from the editors of the American Heritage dictionaries; and An Introduction to Classification and Number Building in Dewey, by Marty Bloomberg and Hans Weber.
I have The Grammar Bible, by Michael Strumpf and Auriel Douglas, here with me now...
As for the other subjects... science and history can be interesting, but math muddles my mind until it's just a miserable mass. *sigh*
Oh, and foreign languages are pretty fun. I've been dabbling in German for a while now. Still can't form a complete sentence, but I'm getting close to memorizing the sixteen or so German equivalents of 'the'. :crazy:
I love studying art in basically every form: martial arts, visual arts, music, dance, theater, etc.
I love studying behavioral social science: psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc
I love studying some business aspects: marketing and economics mainly.
Strangely it was RE (Religious Eduction)....all though primary and secondary school i was really interested in religion....but im not relgious and now, can't remember hardly anything about it.
I think it comes from my desire for breadth of knowledge....it doesn't matter if im not Thai, I still want to know how to say hello non verbally (which by the way, is puttting your hands together as if praying - in front of your chest - and bowing your head to just above where you fingertips are)
Your welcome :wink: (ps. i dont know what the non verbal thai for that is) :tongue:
Yes, this apparently comes from a disagreement in what the method of history should be. As a humanity, the methods are analytic, critical, or speculative as opposed to empirical (the gathering of quantitative information) and sociologically orientated.
I took a Theory of Knowledge class and I wish I could have taken it forever, the structure of it was great.
Most people hated it but it was probably one of the only classes I was interested in enough to keep up in it and excel at. I had the same teacher for Theory of Knowledge and for history and he called me an enigma on the report card because of the difference in my personality when I was really enthralled by something.
English class is stupid, and the biggest waste of my time, because as you can tell I have horrible grammar. Why don't they just make grammar class instead of English class, I may have valued my education, even through college, its horrible. I did learn how to BS papers in that class, and drag out subjects into 5 pages which that should only last for 5 paragraphs.
I loved History, just so interesting and the teacher was hilarious, had some good discussions too. I liked Chemistry, fascinating. And English was great once we started doing poetry and Shakespeare, before that not so much. Geography, Maths and Physics never got me going. Languages, too much detail and remembering. Art, crap teacher but I got really good at it when I left school!
Anybody relate? If so, what type are you? IT would be interesting to compare :happy:
My ESTJ ex-boyfriend is typically healthy (mentally/physically). We broke up over bizarre circumstances:
Fell in love on the job. Totally compatible in almost all hobbies, music, television, political interests and family values.
He typically is honest with strong integrity, HOWEVER- was...
Had an interesting discussion today about this. Someone was talking how they couldn't be happy doing a job they didn't love. The guy was ISFP and I told him that I, personally, don't need to love my job. In the end, money is the most important thing to me. I can do what I love doing on my own...
