A cat's head. Or two birds in profile back to back.

I have about a bazillion icons, and this one never seems quite appropriate for anything. But it makes me chuckle.

[Error: unknown template qotd] I'm pretty familiar with my MBTI type, but I've never taken the trouble to figure out my Enneagram. Overall, the Meyer-Briggs type system is the most accurate personality test I've taken. It categorizes me as INTP (often called the architect or engineer type), which means Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Percieving (the opposite of which would be ESFJ - Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging).

Being a female INTP is pretty rare as a personality type, given that the majority of females are Feelers, and that INTPs in general make up about 1% of the population (or around 3%, depending on which data you're looking at).

What it all means is that I'm deeply analytical, need time to myself, and generally pay more attention to my inner world than to the outer world. Paul James did a wonderful (and lengthy) description of the INTP type that can be found here.   When I read through that, I find myself laughing at parts because it's just way too true.

A few quotes I lifted from :

"INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into. They live primarily inside their own minds, having the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge. They are the "absent-minded professors", who highly value intelligence and the ability to apply logic to theories to find solutions."

"likes solitude, not revealing, unemotional, rule breaker, avoidant, familiar with the darkside, skeptical, acts without consulting others"

People attributed to being INTPs stretch anywhere from Socrates, Einstein and Jung to fictional characters like Avon from Blake's 7, Data from Star Trek, and George from Dead Like Me. Which is pretty cool, I think. ...though I'm sure there have been some equally terrible people attributed to the same personality type. 

A lot of my time online is spent at the INTPcentral forum. I joined a few years ago, and so far,it's the only forum that's ever got me to stick around for so long. I think it has something to do with being able consistently understand what most of the members are talking about without much trouble in interpretation. It's a matter of being on the same wavelength.

So, there ya go. More than you ever wanted to know about my MBTI type.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I wanted Bill Nighy the most. I think he would have seemed some strange combination of John Pertwee and Tom Baker, and that would have been brilliant. He has a very "I could possibly be an alien, but don't worry about it" quality.

Or Paul McGann! Actually on the TV show!
