Haters Hate, Creators Create

Haters, haters, haters: they will always keep on hating,
So, give exactly zero fucks to what they say, and keep creating.
Dream so big and weird, that everyone will think you’re “nuts,”
Then, laugh until it makes you cry, while counting up your bucks.

Enjoy what you have earned… After all, you do deserve it,
But don’t forget the little guy who’s thinking he’s not worth it.
For some reason, he didn’t walk the “recommended” path,
Plus, Life’s a ‘number’s game;’ he just got left out in the math.

A day, not long ago, that lonely lunatic was you!
Remember how it felt thinking there’s nothing you could do?
You’ve finally made it to the promised land, why ever leave?
The goal was never wealth, but getting hopeless to believe.

Outrageous!

I apologize for my not keeping up with, or improving, my blog.

I’ve known for a while now that a shut down of this site was coming, but what lies ahead is much better…

“The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.”

Several years ago, I had a fantastic opportunity to do what I wanted with my life. After considerable thought, I realized that my life was too complete; even though I had overcome certain adversity, the changes I needed to make were not that hard for me. So, I had only been pushed to my limits once or twice.

Building Me

After studying examples of people I aspired to achieve the same level as, I found a common thread. Upon further investigation, I found psychological evidence that supports my belief. I’m not going to get into it here, but if you are interested, search for “Dabrowski’s Theory of Positive Disintegration.”

Essentially, we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves.

We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are:

Sane or insane.
Saints or sinners.
Heroes or villains.

We can keep letting history tell us how good or bad we are. We can keep letting our past decide our future. Or, we can decide for ourselves.

Maybe it’s our job to build something better?

Sensors vs Intuitives – What Role Does Each Type Play in Society?

I hear often, when talking to another intuitive person for the first time about personality types, the same general complaint:

“So and so” [A Sensing Type] thinks I’m weird. [An Intuitive Type]

The best is the look on the person’s face, when I respond with: “Well, they (The Sensing Type) are absolutely correct.”

“Weird,” by definition, is something that is abnormal, uncanny, strange, unusual, or unexpected.

So, the Sensing-dominant person is correct for multiple reasons:

STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY

Right off the bat, 70% of the population prefers Sensing, versus only 30% favoring Intuition. This means that intuitives are actually less likely to exist, according to pure statistics.

The Sensing Type person is probably “normal,” which means conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected. They are significantly more populous in society, making them more expected.

Dissection: ENTP

Good start on ENTP’s!

ENTP Me

I’d like to start discussing individual types and producing individual descriptions now that I’ve covered the fundamentals. This is going to be quite a long process given the amount of detail I am going to go into as I dissect each personality and their traits, functions, potential enneagram types and more (we’ll have a crash course in enneagram shortly). If you don’t see your type or the type of someone you are interested in understanding better, I can take requests; otherwise, I’ll have to go at my own arbitrary speed. Let’s start with ENTPs! That’s what I am so I might as well start this dissection process by dissecting myself (figuratively speaking). 

So what exactly is an ENTP? Besides human, typically, ENTPs are Extroverted iNtuitive Thing Perceivers. For those of you that are late to the MBTI party this means they gather their energy from other people, perceive the world…

Dr. House is 100% an ENTP, and Most Definitely Not an INTJ

Backwards Time Machine

20131224-154257.jpg
Dr. House is portrayed as the kind of genius that gets to be a jerk and buck the system because he’s just that good. He uses deductive reasoning of the Sherlock Holmes type to solve complicated medical cases.

Though he seems to value as the most important thing in life, he frequently (and, very occasionally, admittedly) uses it to manipulate himself and others more than to create a truly consistent logical system for everything.

His somewhat random and energetic behavior is not really indicative of a IJ temperament in any sense.

Though highly confrontational, he is decidedly manipulative, rather than physical. His aggression seems intellectual in nature, and his aim is to be recognized as smart and correct, rather than powerful and in control.

His best friend Wilson appears to be an SEI and SLI who compulsively befriends “needy” individuals.

o Extremely calculating and logical; absence of empathy.

o Disdainful…
