Ashley, my classmates all laughed when they saw my score because it fit me so well. Even the men in the class said I thought more like a man than a woman. I don't know if there is a correlation there, but I do like to get at the core of problems and stop moving chairs on the deck of the Titanic. 

You will find this a very loving and accepting group, even as we have different personalities. They seem to forgive when I get overbearing.

Oh hi Ashley! So glad you could join us here.

I hope you enjoy the site.

Hi! The minute I saw this group I knew it was perfect for me to join! So happy to see so many like minded people actually DO exist (and can co-exist. Go figure).

Oh, Joan, I took that test too. Exactly the results I got the time I took it. INTP. I thought it was exactly right when I read it. I remember thinking "Yup, that's me" :-D

Steph, just for the fun of it, I am sending my Myers Briggs results: 

Seek to develop logical explanations for everything that interests them. Theoretical and abstract, interested more in ideas than in social interaction. Quiet, contained, flexible, and adaptable. Have unusual ability to focus in depth to solve problems in their area of interest. Skeptical, sometimes critical, always analytical.

Steph, you and I make a good team.
