    I don't disagree with you, I just would not make it so easy by offering up all of the details of my life so publicly where there's a chance it could be used against me directly or indirectly for sinister purposes by the government, or other criminals and enemies. I see a lot of drama come into...

    Overvaluation of being well rounded

    It could also be that some parents just want to be able to expose their children to a wider variety of experiences to help them develop their interest and see what they take to and what they don't.

    What really gets me is the people I know who use social media for everything and also complain about the patriot act, NSA spying, and employer snooping on prospective employees.

    Expectations Vs Reality

    There is a sense of empowerment that comes with making you own way through in the world. Earning your own resources instead of being dependent on others to provide them to you. life is something to navigate, even your best charts and maps will still not have all the information you need, so you...

    What are feelers good at?

    I believe that the feeling or thinking preference is more about what motivates you and what environments best suite your temperament than what your abilities are. Anything that you focus on, you will be better at. This is an SJ world so IP's have a more difficult tome dealing with it. You can...

    Macbook Problems

    plugging an external monitor in might help you solve the problem, or a rescue USB drive that you can boot from to troubleshoot the system. The write error seems pretty ominous.

    Behaviour and success

    It was quite inspiring to read something that resonated so well with what I had come to believe was my key to success a long time ago. But it's hard sometimes not to get caught up in that conventional wisdom. Finding yourself trying to live up to someone else's expectations.

    Behaviour and success

    I read this book a few years ago titled "The Personality Code". And couldn't agree with it more. I hate generic motivational speeches and books. Trying harder may or may not get you anywhere depending on a variety of factors. It's about what to work at, where to put the focus. Self understanding...

    Behaviour and success

    Knowing when to quit is also important to success. Understanding yourself is I think the most important thing. Playing to your strengths, protecting your shortcomings, knowing when it's time to change direction are also very important.

    Sensor Sabbatical

    I would also vote to just stay home. The man/woman cave is the best sanctuary to me. On a side note, I find extroverted sensors either in the dominant or the aux to be refreshing at times, what I tend to avoid the most are the autharative natures of the Judjing sensors like ISTJs.

    Why Do So Many People Hate Ayn Rand?

    Actually Rand hated selfishness and greed. Maybe she wasn't a compassionate person, but I would not consider her selfish or greedy. She preached rational self-interest. She was advocating to keep what is yours and work for what you want. Not beg, mooch, or loot what is not yours. Some people...
