Seven Random Facts

As requested by my mother:

1. My hair is naturally blonde. Not profound, but random, and a fact. I can assure you that, over all, blondes don't really have more fun. Or maybe most blondes have more fun, but not blondes that are INTJ. Whatever the case, I do think that blondes, particularly ones with pale skin, occasionally do get more attention, but it's only because we are more noticeable: We reflect more light than people with darker hair and complexions, and so tend to draw the eye a bit more. Simple physics. At least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

2. I am excessively fond of not-quite-ripe guavas. Mmmmmm.

3. I can dance the Charleston.

4. I like to play Sudoku. I find it soothing.

5. One of my life goals is to visit the location and/or see remains of each of the ancient wonders listed in the book, The Seventy Wonders of the Ancient World. I've already been to 22.

6. As indicated above, my personality is INTJ in the Myers-Briggs personality profile. It is a fairly rare personality type (estimated at 1% of the population). Yes, yet again, I am a freak of nature.

7. One of my first jobs in science education was working as a teaching assistant in my biology department at college. I got paid something like $5/hour to push cadavers around on carts, and dissect worms, and stuff like that. I actually loved it a lot.

Very interesting and I wouldn't say you are a freak of nature. I "created" you. You are simply and profoundly and wonderfully unique.
(I had to look up the spelling of unique the other day; had forgotten how to spell it)

INTJ may be rare, but that's me too. How are you doing Deb?
