Supper tonight and Why I am a social reject

So here is what we ate for dinner tonight. I can never quite seem to assemble this thing right. I always seem to forget a layer or something. Have had to take it out of the oven, try to scrape off the cheese and add a layer. Tonight I forgot the canned tomatoes....but remembered before it was too late. It is pretty tasty...not very spicy for those of you afraid of spice.

So I was digging through a file tonight and found some remnants of the Meyers-Briggs personality test that we had to take during our first year of residency. We all took it and then had to discuss it during our first year team spirit or something, learn to get to know each other. Anyway...similar to that computer quick test the other night that is posted here on my lovely blog. Anyway on the "real" test I was a ISFP....also very rare and very "special". Here are the highlights from that description of "me":
1. I am inclined to the "fine arts" (?maybe)
2. A major source of misunderstanding is the tendency to not express themselves directly, but through action. If they find a medium of expression, some art form, then the character is expressed in some degree via the medium. If not, it simply doesn't come out, and no one knows them (I think that is a nice way of saying I'm a social reject...I agree).
3. I do not plan and prepare (....sometimes)
4. Has a special kind of intelligence (...kind of like that one=) )
5. The senses of the the ISFP seem more keenly tuned than those of others (is that why I can smell stuff others can't?)
6. ISFP is not usually interested in the developing facility in speaking, writing, or conversation. Sometimes seen by others as reserved and private. This reluctant speech is not so much a lack of ability as it is disinterest. (....yep, I am a true social reject, I agree)
7. (this is my favorite one.....) ISFPs have a lot of leeway in choice of occupation, especially if they don't drop out of school early (most do since school offers little that is of interest to them or that challenges their special brand of intelligence) It is a sad day indeed when the ISFP chooses work wherein the operations are fixed by rule or necessity and not free. To be happy and productive the ISFP must choose variable actions and be rewarded for doing them. (maybe I chose the wrong profession?)
8. They are quite at home in the wilds and nature seems to welcome them. Some have a remarkable way with animals (must be referring to children as Betty and I don't get along...she is scared of me) (oh here we go.....)in some instance a similar bond may be seen between the ISFP and young children.
9. And finally....ISFPs are misunderstood not only because they are retiring, reserved, and even self-effacing, and becuase they have been cast as "introverted feeling types".

Sorry that was probably boring....but it actually does describe me in all my social rejectedness glory =). Have a lovely day

I'm an ISFP myself so I guess I fit in the social reject category as well. : ) But on the positive side, many creative geniuses come from this category, so with your scrapbooking, I think you're on your way. I guess that all explains why I dropped out of school and can't seem to want to work at a day job. : ) Anyway, need to go and settle a dispute going on between my children. Bye.

You both are such lovely social rejects though. And such crazy fun loving ones once people know you. Can't BDD one also? And KED? I don't remember what I was. Does anyone remember. I guess it shows how exciting our life is since we all took that test!!!!! Sorry I was so late in replying to you. I am so busy with my new project...the BB that I actually forgot to not look at your blogg 65 times a day to see if you have updated it.

oops....just remembered that KED could also stand for BDD's lovely wife if she used her maiden name in the middle. I am speaking of the male and elder KED.

The men are both ISTP's - the description that Stacey originally posted. I think a major part of that personality has to do with the mastering of tools of some sort. I remember when I read the long description, it fit them both perfectly. I'm not quite sure what you are. I think you might be an ISFJ, but not totally sure on that one. I just remember that everyone in our family was very similar with not too many extreme differences - which is probably why you think that we were all perfect when little!

Holy crap....two comments from mjdf. What's up with that?
