Everyone else was doing it.

I've taken around 5 or 10 Myers Briggs online tests (and despite having a doctor of psychology for a mother, I've never been given an actual, real life test). Anyway, I always end up ISFJ.

And it always irks the crapola out of me that the first job is "Accountant." NOOOOOOOOOO, is this REALLY what I'm meant to do? "Librarian" sounds pretty cool though. Libraries smell so damn good. Books = friends.

Thanks for the diversion, Kerri and Julia.

Kendra, I just spent WAY too much time reading your old posts. I told my husband that I liked you immediately on DM because you were "obviously really smart". Your diagnosis post made me cry. I was just like you, reading about my symptoms online and seeing only diabetes come up. Same deal, I thought "I can't have diabetes...how ridiculously melodramatic to even consider it!" Here I am and the people I relate to most now are "strangers" on DM. It's kind of funny really. I actually feel like I have a bit of a double life. Oh, by the way, the other day I happened to run across the personality test I took in my first semester of college and I'm an ENFJ. Even though it was 11 years ago, I read through it all and it still seems pretty much accurate.

Thanks, Danae...like I said I'm so glad you found DM because I have really enjoyed your presence there. A double life it is...I'm no stranger to online relationships and messageboards, but DM is a bit different. I have a lot of emotional investment there...people really are FRIENDS there. :)

If you're an ENFJ, you can do all my talking for me! :D

What is that library smell? They all have it - even the new ones. Same thing with book stores. I love that smell. My husband thinks I'm nuts (no comment) because every time I go into a book shop, I take a deep breath and smile and say "Mmmmm, books."

I think it's a combination of good paper and dreams.
