Improving the system  
We INTJ's are system builders. Our archetype is known as Mastermind, Scientist or Strategist. But I once read one that was unusual but accurate. The Outside Contractor. We come in see what the problem is in a system and fix it. If the system is a failing business we do not care about social relationships and who's friends and who's enemies. The point is to fix the system and we cut out those that are holding the system back without care for feelings or personal attachments. That is why we are so effective because we are so objective and well ruthless. I was having a conversation with jokerforever and he showed me a picture someone had made of animals that represent each of the types. I was fairly impressed and I don't easily impress. But that wore off quickly and soon I could not stand the flaws. It's all I could see and they had to be fixed. The system had to be improved on. We do not focus on the positive because that already works it doesn't need our attention. We focus on the negative because that is where improvement is required and one of our mottos is "Bottom line: Does it work?" So this is the old flawed picture I was shown.

Some of the animals were wrong. Dead wrong on the Seal for INFP. Seals are happy social, optimistic creatures. So that would not stand. The second issue was this person was obviously an N and probably an NF because all the N's got positive descriptions while all the S types were dumped on. So that had to be fixed. Cue the objective NT to fix the mess on an idealistic NF. Lastly, this person is from tumblr. That had to be fixed. So now I present to you the improved and corrected animal Myers Briggs chart and descriptions.

So this person almost had it right but not quite.

Ok if you read my post about how it's difficult to surprise me with gits well it happened today. Ironic I was just talking to audes_lj about this. A little back story. I had ordered two giant microbes as gifts. I had also written to the company to ask them why they got rid of the Add to Wish List button but still have a Wish List. Isn't that dumb and you can't add stuff to your list anymore so why have it? He asked me what microbe I wanted to add. So I told him about geobacter and thought he would manually add it for me. Nope bu the wished me a happy birthday filled with geobacter. I got suspicious and wondered if I might be getting one as a just because since I've been a loyal customer for years and been ordering every year from them. Hummm? I wonder? Anyway been watching the tracking and today I get my order. YAY! Two bags? WTF? I then thought maybe they put each microbe in a separate bag OR they sent me a free geobacter. That would rock. So I tore into one of the bags all excited. There was an orange plush. Geobacter??? No this wasn't Geobacter. What's this? I didn't order this. From Audes? OH NO MY GIFT!!! Darn it. So thank you for the early gift and sorry I accidentally opened it. Oh man we were just talking about this. It's funny and annoying because I'm not one of those impatient kids or people that can't wait to find the gift and spoil it. I really do like to wait for the special day to open gifts. But I have this curse thrust upon me. I can't pretend I didn't see it or forget about it. So thank you for the Neurax Worm and Krill. A harmless creature and a cool dangerous fictional creature with mind control powers. I loved the Neurax campaign actually. I named mine Alaskan Bull Worm. BTW I'm currently playing the Simian Flu right now. I lost the first time around and will try again soon. Wanted to ask those of you that play Plague Inc. Does your game have a glitch? Mine has no music. I've been looking forward to this mission but it's a bit boring with no music. The music gives this game awesome atmosphere. I don't know if it's just me or if this version is messed up for everyone. Also I think I'm actually a big fan of the Apes movies. The new Planet of the Apes movies. I could never get into the originals despite them being classics. I can't wait for the new Apes movie to open on Friday. I want to go see it on opening day. So Wed and Thursday I will watch parts 1 and 2 to be caught up on what happened and have those fresh in my mind when I see the new one.

I didn't work on any art today but I wrote a whole story for the drawing of George. So please check that out when you have time. I'm very excited about it and love how it turned out. I want to draw more scenes from it.

If they are going to give me a turtle, couldn't they at least give me one that isn't ugly?
Des: Ophidius Concernedthagirion on July 11th, 2017 01:04 am (UTC)
But it's the coolest one in the world.
Alligator snapping turtle. That's King Bowser Koopa from Mario Bros.

Seriously I still have the psd file. I can change these if you think they are wrong. What turtle would you like?
actipton80actipton80 on July 11th, 2017 10:33 pm (UTC)
I'm fine with it, now that I know more about that particular turtle. Still think it's ugly even if it's cool.
Desthagirion on July 11th, 2017 10:59 pm (UTC)
Ok, glad you're fine with him now. They are pretty interesting. So powerful.

Oh wow cool. I'm glad I could post something you were thinking about then. Yeah Joker showed me this and the wrong parts just bothered me as this was so close to being awesome and perfect. I'm glad you approve of the panda as I am open to suggestions on animals or text that might still be wrong for the types. I didn't like they posted "rare" because it's not a personality trait as AudeS said. It's one reason I changed it. Also if you want rare then INTx are the rarest types. I love it that "vegetarian" animals do eat meat sometimes. You can't really get protein from just plants anyway. Even things like peanuts which drives me nuts when people say they are "meat". No they have no muscle tissue they are not meat. They are vegetables. They finally learned pandas are related to bears so they are dangerous too like other bears.
I'm glad you like the other types. I had to change some of the text and make it bigger because they are hard to read. I hate tumblr. It is a place used by lowlifes and brainless losers mostly. It is for people that lack communication abilities.
Glad you like the alligator snapping turtle. I think they are such bad ass turtles and so cool an interesting video game villain was inspired by them.

Aw thanks. That's nice you thought of buying me a microbe. Seems AudeS had the same idea. So annoying I accidentally found it. Aw I'm honored you think of me in those terms. So cerebral. Hehe.

Perhaps my game just loaded incorrectly. I had trouble with the PS4 on my trip and then I had to reconnect online here when I got home again. It should just auto detect. I don't know why this is not a feature. The music was working everywhere else so it was a glitch on that one level. I will have to try again today and hope it works. The music makes a huge difference and without it it's not the same.

Yes they do fit especially with the whole trickster mentality.
I remember documentaries when they kept saying they were related to red pandas and I just didn't see it. I never believed it and now glad genetics has proven that wrong. Good. It's interesting that spectacled bears are are basically a south American version of our common black bear. Ok that's not a subspecies and should never have been made one. It's a color mutation like you see in domestic animals and pigeons. If it was a bird I'd call it a cinnamon. Color mutations tend to be smaller than the normal wild type. I don't know why biologists have such a hard time with this concept. They should hang out with animal breeders more.

One thing that bugs me is there is a stupid debate for ages now with Bowser that some people say he's an ankylosaurus. How can they think that if he is the king of a bunch of turtles? Why would an ankylosaur care about controlling turtles? He's a snapping turtle. It's so obvious even the shape of his tail and he has a shell not plates. When I see pics of these turtles I can see how this is Bowser.

I will try to play later today and hope the music works. Is the level's music unique? I liked that I think the Neurax music was unique from the one you always hear on other levels.

Thank you for sharing the song. I am listening to it now. Oh I love the faster part of the piano. I love music that causes tentions but well you know how fear oriented I am. I am my boy after all. I have a very hard time reading emotions on other people, except fear. I recognize this expression right away and it gets my attention. The way that in this story Fear noticed the one enemy that showed even a tiny hesitation and he was drawn to it right away.

Yeah it amazes me how "new species" are classified when they are just a color mutation.
I know. The whole ankylosaurus think is so silly. Some people really think that.

That's great. I like that movie too. The first one is my fave though. I beat this level finally after a third try. The music is super quiet and almost not there. I don't like that.

Yeah there's no need. What's positive and working doesn't need attention. I hated it when my mother used to tell me I was so negative and only focused on the bad. I know now it's because I'm focusing on what needs to be fixed.

Thanks. I LOVE that we got tiger and it fits so well. Yeah I don't need to be king of the jungle like ENTJ. I just need my space and to be respected. If not then I can just eat my enemy. The old one was very flawed so I made the font bigger and easier to read. Also yes those two animals had to be changed. Cockatoos are very emotional parrots. I had one and have seen how easily they get distressed over nothing. In a way it also fits INFP since they fall part like that while other birds are tougher.
I remember one apes movie from a few decades ago where at the end of the movie the apes were driving cars and were police officers. I did not like that movie at all. I love the new ones with Caesar though.

Ok thanks. That's fine. I know it takes time to read a long story like that.

Ha yes. I had to remove the "sig" since I'm sure none of those photos were taken by that person. Basically it's a bunch of art theft and why I didn't sign it myself and free for anyone that wants it. I hate that place is just so full of art theft to the point they are even unaware you are not supposed to use photos without permission.
Yes it's one of our driving forces to improve and fix errors. We are good because we focus on what's wrong. Glad you like my version. Yes Rare is not a trait. It's a condition and if they are going by that then INTx are the two rarest types.

I love that we got Tiger and I think it's so appropriate for the reasons you stated. I was totally fine with that. I think it's cool ENTP specifically got blue and gold macaw. Of the large macaws blue and golds have been described as the tricksters and practical jokers so that fits. Chris approved of the owl so yes they got all the NT's right at least. ACTipton is also ISTJ. I love alligator snapping turtles. The most bad ass turtle out there and the inspiration for Bowser.

I love the Neurax worm. I'm glad you got me that. Yes the krill was very cute. I hope they fix the wish list so I can add new things to it. I wonder if it is a PS4 glitch because the music works everywhere else and it's not in my settings. My settings are correct. I will have to play an older level and see if the music works since I had trouble while on vacation and perhaps stuff got messed up.

See people misunderstand that. Giving credit is not enough. I do not allow anyone to use any of my stuff without permission even if they credit me. I think they've made the laws less strict which is wrong and doesn't protect the owner like it should.

Not sure how to dump the cache on my playstation but I'll look into it. Maybe just restarting will help. I'll have to find time to mess with it.

Ah nice to see you improved the chart I shared with you. I prefer this one actually, at least the font is more easily readable , not to mention this is more accurate with the butterfly as INFP and the cockatoo as ISFP. I enjoy that I am an owl as I'm certainly happy to be so wise and calm ;).

So the company you ordered from online has a wishlist and yet no way to add anything to it? Sounds pretty fishy to me. Yetthat's so funny you opened AudrS's gift early accidentally XD.

I quite enjoy the new planet of the apes films as well, I could never quite get in to the old versions either despite, I hardly remember much about them except for two lines , "It's a mad house!" or " Tou maniacs! You burnt it up! Damn you! Damn you all to hell!", and that's about it. I think the new movies have the overall better story.
Desthagirion on July 11th, 2017 11:34 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you like this better. Yes the text and the two photos are just better now. I think owl for INTP works quite well.

They used to have a feature you could order from and add to the wishlist. But it was a tiny font and always hard to find. Now it is totally gone. He told me they plan to bring it back. They never should have removed it. They should have made the link bigger and easier to see.

I'm glad you agree on Planet of the Apes. Yes those are the famous lines. I just know the first new film tied in well because they showed the astronauts leaving for Mars that were the ones in the original. And in the original they mentioned the first ape to resist said "No" and they did that. So that was good. I'm curious how they'll remake the original once they get to that point.

"Free spirited and sensitive" sounds like Muffin :-) I often wonder if Feisty is an introvert budgie since he doesn't have an interest in the new budgies.
Des: Gaus my budgiethagirion on July 25th, 2017 02:31 am (UTC)
Ha the cockatoo family is definitely that way as far as parrots go. He might be. Just like people most birds are extroverts but some are introverts.
