  1. I don't believe in heaven and hell, but if you're asking if there's a type that's generally GOOD, you're looking at it. If I remember correctly, if you look up any other type you'll find instances of famous serial killers and despots. Not so with INFP. If we do any wrong, it's to ourselves.
  2. love, success, intelligence
  3. Good timing. Today's the Persian New Year! Here's what I'm listening to:
  4. Mmm... pineapples. I'll just add these to the buffet table.
  5. We're discussing strategies? Why doesn't anyone ever tell me these things? ...... added to this post 9 minutes later: Oh well. I guess the discussion is over. *drops her pile of tastefully embroidered sacks and scurries off into the sunlight*
  6. *misses LD but joins the sack race* I have extra sacks. Who wants one?
  7. These are my thoughts on the matter, and although I realize my process is different than many of yours, I see this happening frequently among thinkers and judgers so, here goes. Just as several of you have noted, I believe there is no one way to grieve, but it's not a step we can sidestep without consequences. Sure, it's easier to just walk away and "put away" your feelings and go on as if nothing has happened.... but that's how your attic fills with baggage. What I've observed with many INTJs is that they often wait for *years* to unpack those feelings they put aside. Mind you, every time we put aside unpleasant feelings, our emotional wavelength decreases. Until we go back and clean house, that is. When some INTJ folks get around to dealing with the grief, the situation is so far removed that there is no remedying it, and yet there is often a fair amount of self-recrimination and melancholy to go through. Sometimes self-pitying, sometimes regretful. There's an opportunity to move on from there, if you all stick with it until it's cleared out, but no. There's a sentimental side of INTJ that's rarely talked about, that makes many of you hold onto your grief-stricken memories, so you dip into your melancholy here and there. In doable doses. Because 1) dealing with anything emotionally-charged for more than short periods is far too unsettling and 2) not letting go completely allows you to carry the memory around. So, in answering your questions, here are my personal opinions:
  8. *peeks in, freshens up the buffet table, sets the timer on the coffee maker, and paints a large magenta isosceles triangle on the far wall.*
  9. I'm a little scared if affection is shown here with sharpened knives!
  10. Something about wearing green..... and St. Patrick's Day... (Bailey's)...and Toki's GIF, made me think of this:
  11. Congrats! That seems lucky. Are you Irish? Of course you may have had some (fortuitous) spinach in your teeth....
  12. You got your pinch in last night!! Despite my shamrock tattoo. Or is pinching part of the hazing here?
  13. Help yourself! Also, thank you so much for inviting me back. :)
  14. The last four generally come bearing Girl Scout cookies. No need to wait until they grow up to harvest their treats. ...... added to this post 10 minutes later: Since it's the weekend, and I assume others will start arriving as they unwind, I've set up a buffet along the wall. (Not the wall I am repainting...) Help yourselves, everyone. :)
