Do You Realize?

Last Friday I went on a day-retreat with my department. It was all it was expected to be – uneventful and not as much bonding as one might think. Same old, same old.

Before we went, we were to do a Myers-Briggs test, which I always find to be a major waste of time. I cannot even tell you how many times I’ve taken a variation of the test (long version, short version, you name it) and I don’t think I’ve ever had the same profile twice in a row.

For a long time I was an ESTJ, then the ‘E’ went to an ‘I’. Now I’m back to the ‘E’ but the ‘S’ is now an ‘N’. Did you follow all that? Allegedly I am now an ENTJ. The reality is, you can make yourself almost anything you want to with those things – depending on how you read the questions….or interpret them. I always go back to the SNL skit that said, “you can’t put too much water in a nuclear reactor.” Think about it.

I mean I couldn’t answer truly answer ‘You are almost never late for your appointments’. My big pet peeve is never being late for my appointments. I don’t mind if others are (to a degree), but I am not. So, if I said ‘yes’, it means I am almost never late. If I said ‘no’ it could mean I am late as opposed to saying ‘no, I am never late’.

I guess it is not surprise that the ‘T’ part of my rating was in a high percentage range. I probably over think.

Other ENTJs aren’t all that great:  Thatcher.  Nixon.  Napoleon. Whoopi and Newt!  Crimeny!   now and again you see a Bill Gates (better?), or Carl Sagan.  The best one is Sigourney Weaver!  At least I’m up there with the Keymaster…..or was it the Gatekeeper?

But as my man date from a few weeks ago pointed out, there is a link to a Men & Romance series index. Though it tells me (and other ENTJs) of my/our dating objectives and what kind of long-term partner I am looking for, it also tells me of my ‘biggest problem’: detaching clingy women who haven’t gotten the message that he’s moved on.

Yes, that is my biggest problem.

Needless to say, Scott and I were punchy and both in tears at our desk as he read this to me.

  1. Clingy women is the problem for many women, however once over this hurdle life is a bed of roses without the thorn

  2. Cling people, in general, make me run!

  3. Clingy people LOL, not cling people. But I think you knew what I meant!
