I'm curious  
Posted 5/5/2011
Since I've now gone over 50 flags on my flag counter collection and am now starting to get repeat visitors from some countries I want to get some info from those of you watching. I have my journal set so that only LJ members can respond but with this poll anyone should be able to participate. At least it says all can vote. Let's hope it works and you don't just have to be registered here. I shall leave this up for a week and then will respond to everyone that left information. I'm very happy with my wide range of viewers and would like to know more about you. So this is a rare chance to in a way get to talk to me. Just know that this is for my information only. If you say you like something that I rarely talk about I'm not going to adjust my way of posting just for you. If you've been watching for any length of time you know I only do things MY way. This is just to satisfy my own curiosity. If this doesn't work for those outside of LJ or if it gets out of hand for some reason I'll simply close it. I can see the results as they are posted. Again this is mostly for my amusment. If you participate, thanks.

I don't know why this one showed up twice in my email. The first one was deleted.

Your bird posts are my favorite since I know the most about them and can actually contribute intelligently to any discussion about them. I'm also trying to learn more about Myers Briggs, and between your journal and the forum I lurk in I've learned quite a bit. I appreciate that you don't bash S's when you talk about MB since a lot of N's especially NT's act like SJ's are either box-of-rocks dumb or only slightly less evil (in the creativity/individuality squashing way) than the Borg.

You know I love Cope.

On a slightly less related note, I heard Any Way You Want it on the radio the other day, and I thought of you and Protist and Peep. My budgies enjoy the classic rock station.

Eh, you noticed that huh? I screwed up the first one actually. I tried to put it behind the cut and LJ wouldn't let me and when I hit save it deleted everything. Luckily I had copied and pasted most of it for a "just in case" scenario like that and put it back up quickly with the edits. Oops.

Aw, thanks for responding. I hadn't expected any of my regulars to answer this since it was aimed at those that might be lurking but thank you. I appreciate it.

I don't talk about my birds, apart from my chickens, as much as I used to and I do need to change that. My title up there "Experiences of a budgie lover" hasn't been as appropriate lately. I do jump from obsession to obsession but always return to my main ones and birds are my #1 that's never changed since I was a baby.

I'm very glad to hear you've learned a lot about Myers Briggs from me. I'm surprised I've gotten so good at it in such a short amount of time. I think it's been over two years since I got into it and am still learning and refining what I have observed. Like perhaps it's not necessarily NFP's that I can't stand but seems that it may be more general and strong FP's drive me up the wall. I really like S types and it's a shame that other NT's don't appreciate them more or see them in the proper light. But I do bash S types, and ANY type, that is deserving of it. What I do is point out flaws and regardless if you're an S, a T or an E if you act like an idiot I'll call you on it. I've bashed my fellow INTJ's as you've seen but will also call out the S types like that one guy at the fish store that used his boring powers on me. Oh gosh. SJ's aren't stupid they just think very differently. I appreciate their ability to notice details (I suck at that unless it's in a field of interest) and that can be good or bad depending on the situation. Hehe, you noticing my attempt to sweep the initial post under the rug is a good example. Hum, take that as a compliment! The borg are a very formidable enemy. I'd swell with pride.

Yes, I know you do and both him and I are very glad. Cope needs a following too. He's one of my very few nice good guys.

Aw, hehe. I always think of naughty budgies when I hear that song. That's why I had to make that video. I'm glad you think of my pair now. Your budgies have good taste. All budgies do. They get excited for the right reasons.

I know you bash S types when they deserve it. What I meant was that you don't bash them just for being an S like a lot of NT's do especially immature ones. I actually get along with FP's better than FJ's. It's that darn Fe that I don't use, but FJ's do.

Formidable yes. A society I'd want to belong to? no. I enjoy quiet and solitude too much to have millions of voices in my head that aren't mine. But again, there aren't many if any societies in Star Trek that I would want to be a part of.

That's true. Respect is very important to me and I won't disrespect anyone unless they give me reason to. Have you dealt with an ISFJ's? I think they are very nice and fairly level headed. I guess when I think of SJ's I think of the ISJ's first. ESFJ's aren't so bad at arm's distance but don't count on them to keep dates though I'm thinking that's an extrovert thing. I've been meaning to rant on that. I've never met an ESTJ that I know of and I'm actually very curious about them. They're one of the ones on my list to call out on Youtube if I ever get around to that.

But the question wasn't do you want to belong to them? You need to learn to take an insult (or percieved insult) as a compliment when possible. One step below the borg is pretty awesome if you ask me. Right away I'd hone in on tactical ability, awesome computer hacking and powers, impenitrable shields and doged determination. They aren't calling you a borg so that doesn't mean you'd be one. I'd take those as good points. You need to see what's said and take what's good about it. I've had lots of people compare me to Hitler (likely ENTJ), and I've never been offended by that. Hitler was a great strategist, orator and manipulator. I've pissed others off by responding to that, "Oh really? Do you mean it? Wow thank you." Hehe.

I don't think I know any confirmed ISFJ's in real life. I'm thinking the missing dates thing is more of an extrovert thing. Most confirmed introverts I know only miss dates if they are sick or have emergencies. My mom is ESFJ and she rarely misses stuff, but she never goes anywhere without her calendar book either.

I wasn't insulted, but only people with positive ratings can say things like that and expect me not to take it as an insult.
Desthagirion on May 6th, 2011 12:28 pm (UTC)
I have a few good friends here that are ISFJ like Silvolf and Earthmother. I'm glad to hear you mom does that. That's how it should be done. I think she's rare among the E's then.

I don't have a lot to add that I didn't answer in the survey, but I will say that I do like seeing your posts about your garden, your pet chickens and birds, and I've learned quite a bit about birds in the time I've known you.
Des: Thank Youthagirion on May 6th, 2011 03:47 pm (UTC)
Thanks for taking it. I hadn't expected that. I'm glad you like my bird and garden posts. I'm glad you've learned about birds. I do my best to share what I know with people. I enjoy that.
Haha, you think I have a sense of humor? Thanks. I usually think of myself as lacking one but I guess stating the obvious can be funny too espeically if everyone else is afraid to.

I've done your poll, even though I'm not a 'visitor' from outside, as you will have noticed. I surprised even myself that I like your plant posts even more than your music ones. How can that be?

Anyways, you asked whether your new posts have shown up. Well, this is the last post on your journal that I can see when I go to it.

Oh, and I've just found a new post from you on my freind's page entitled Quick Post which explains about the screw up with the poll, so hopefully that is all sorted out here.

But why did that post not show up on your journal just now? Maybe you posted it after I came here. I hope that's it, anyway!
Des: Solan on Drumsthagirion on May 9th, 2011 02:49 am (UTC)
Yes, thanks. I saw your responses. I really appreciate what you said and am glad we met too. I'm glad you like my music posts. They need that too. The posts show up here if viewed directly from my journal, but they weren't showing up in your friends page. In fact it was your friends page I used to test this on. After I responded to you this morning my time, I posted the one called "Quick post". Then I fixed everything. All should be well now. Yeah have a look, as I made three other posts one with a video and one with some neat pictures.
