  1. I love your site!

  2. Wow, you must live right next door to me. :) Small internet! I love moose hunting too. You can get so much reading done...
  3. I've was wondering about his type. I guessed INTP too. :) I love how he incorporates math into his humor, and the fact that I often learn something is a big bonus.

    Yeah, he's definitely an NT.

  4. Love both his and your cartoons. There's the INTP feel about them both where they're full of gentle pokes and witty, mildly eccentric, injoke-ish senses of humour. :nice:

  5. I should print this article out, fold it up, and stick it in the end of the book Dune at the library. Just to make the next person who checks it out think.
  6. I've read most of his stuff. It was after an xkcd binge that I started this comic. ;p I was like, "Well, I guess stick figures wouldn't be too much trouble to draw over and over."

  7. I've been meaning to ask you. Every time I read your cartoons, xkcd comes to mind. It's like double vision! Are you a fan of Randall Munroe?

  8. Yep, I live in Alaska. They're quite cool to watch; sometimes when they're very energetic, they sway across the sky like a luminous green curtain blowing in the wind, faster than any cloud. It's weird to see such swift, massive movements occur in pure silence. At other times they march across the sky in pulses, like a marching army. Usually you'll get "basic green," but if you're very lucky you'll see white and pink fringes on them sometimes. Also, they usually don't move; rather they just lie across the sky doing nothing. I've seen red northern lights maybe once in my life; blue, never.
  9. Yes! That's an excellent description of why I like it. It's a beautiful language. I was somewhat seeing that as a joke. I atleast hope it was. Heh, nope. Reading kids' books is a good way to learn a language because the sentences are simpler, the words are more commonplace, and there are pictures which create word-image assocations in your mind, aiding the memorization of vocabulary. Bonus points if you already have the text memorized from your youth. ;) Cattus Petasatus. And I see they also have Quomodo Invidiosulus Nomine Grinchus Christi Natalem Abrogaverit.
  10. Oooh, Latin! :) You're in for a treat. I love Latin because of its precision and the way the different cases "click together"; there's something almost mathematically beautiful about it. Plus it's just fun seeing how English words came from Latin roots. The book I learned Latin from is Wheelock's Latin. I would rate it above average compared to most language books I have tried and I can recommend it with no reservations. And of course you'll want a pocket Latin-English/English-Latin dictionary. But--the very, very best thing you can do for yourself is to start speaking Latin in your head as you learn it. This way you will get continuous practice. (You'll have to look up modern words (i.e. computer = computatrum) online though, and you can always browse the Latin version of Wikipedia too.) It's quite a fun mental exercise to put together Latin "puzzles" in your head as you try to untangle what cases the words should be in. Like a game. :) P.S. Cicero is way too complicated for a beginner. Get yourself the Latin version of "Green Eggs and Ham" or "The Cat in the Hat."
  11. This is good evidence for introversion. Like you say though, given the troubled nature of his childhood and the friendlessness I wonder if this isolation was by choice or the result of the situation? There are gregarious extraverts who are isolated by their peers, and not vice versa. At any rate, his later extraverted lifestyle was definitely voluntary and self-chosen. Besides his preference for non-stop company, - He could talk for hours at a stretch, rambling on in intuitive fashion with great enthusiasm. - While on a walk, he would talk to one person for awhile, then grow tired of them and call up another person to talk to, and so on and so forth. Introverts prefer talking with a few intimate friends, but Hitler seemed to get bored of people and swap them out. - One introvert remarked that he couldn't have tolerated Hitler's typical working conditions because it was too noisy and crowded. - After finishing his day's work under these conditions, he would go home--but instead of seeking silence and rest to "recharge his introvert batteries" he would hang out with 10+ friends until early in the wee hours of the morning. This was his habit for years on end. I can't square these observations with the idea that he liked to spend lots of time alone.
  12. Okay. :) And yet he liked being constantly surrounded by 10+ people all day long. :) I bet they used some special definition of introvert. Outside the MBTI community, opinions on such things roam free.
  13. There have been plenty of Perceiver Presidents, yet they all carried tasks to completion. So I'm not sure how good of a test completion is for J/P, at least on a national level. :) Then there's Hitler's procrastination, his tendency to make unpredictable last minute changes, and his liking for improvisation. Those are all Perceiver traits, not Judger traits.
  14. :laugh: That's just what I go for. I'm half-laughing at myself when I do the INTP comics, and I hope that everybody feels the same when they read about their own type. Good to know it's working out.
