Since Mrs. Dr. Phil first ran into this in the late 80s at Michigan Tech, we've been amused by it. We had a trip to Marquette and back, listening to this one set of tapes describing the interactions between types of inter-MBPI marriages. The piece was really funny and the INTP/INTJ version was humorously prescient.
Which leads me to this bit of nonsense for the first Monday of 2015. Myers-Briggs New Year's resolutions:
“I resolve to find practical implications for my work since the physical world does, unfortunately, exist.”
Outcome: Derives a theoretical implication for the practicality of their latest project and considers their resolution a success.
Who, me? Living in my head? Over analyzing everything? Moi?
Of course when I explained what I was doing, Mrs. Dr. Phil immediately asked about INTJ:
“I resolve to listen to the opinions of my less intelligent underlings.”
Outcome: Derives motivation from the opinions of commoners to fuel a series of research projects that prove everyone’s opinions to be indisputably wrong.
Yeah, I don't do New Year's resolutions either.
