MEME: The Year That Was 2010

Several years ago, in the days when planetpete used to be a fellow inmate of the Insane Asylum.  When the insane laughter and gibbering’s could be heard coming from the development cell, and all was well in the world (ish). We had a tradition of doing “The Year that was ????” MEME and posting the results on LiveJournal. This year we have decided to re-introduce the festive tradition, and end the year with a look back at the Year that was.

MEME: The Jung Explorer Test Revisited

On the 5th December 2006 I sat A Jung Explorer personality test. Probably due to Office Boredom, or some other important reason, I will not go into since I’ve slept since then. many many many times, and I cant actually remember… But that’s a different story.

Anyway. I sat the test and my results were :-

I am: INTJ (Mastermind)

I want to be: INTP (Architect)

I’m attracted to: ENTP (Inventor)

Taking a minute out of my busy day today. (I was woken by a work based phone call at 7am, and been working since then) I decided to revisit that test, 4 years on. My results this time were.

I am: INTP (Architect)

I want to be: INTJ (Mastermind)

I’m attracted to: ENTP (Inventor)

Very similar, In fact the only difference is that I am now what I used to want to be, and I now want to be what I was. “Wow… thats like so deep ……………man” either that or I am right on the borderline between INTP/J that it depends which way the winds blowing as to which one i’ll end up being.

Descriptions for those of you interested in such things.

INTP – “Architect”. Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. 3.3% of total population.

INTJ – “Mastermind”. Introverted intellectual with a preference for finding certainty. A builder of systems and the applier of theoretical models. 2.1% of total population.

ENTP – “Inventor”. Enthusiastic interest in everything and always sensitive to possibilities. Non-conformist and innovative. 3.2% of the total population.

There is Just one thing confusing me. According to this test I am attracted to “Inventors” which I am reading as Intelligent women, Geeks if you will. So why is it that 100% of the girls I have dated in my life are airheads ??

MEME: What Tarot Card are You?

You are The Chariot

Triumph, Victory, Overcoming Obstacles.

The chariot is one of the most complex cards to define. On its most basic level, it implies war, a struggle, and an eventual, hard-won victory. Either over enemies, obstacles, nature, the beasts inside you, or to just get what you want. But there is a great deal more to it. The charioteer wears emblems of the sun, yet the sign behind this card is the moon. The chariot is all about motion, and yet it is often shown as stationary. It is a union of opposites, like the black and white steeds. They pull in different directions, but must be (and can be!) made to go together in one direction. Control is required over opposing emotions, wants, needs, people, circumstances; bring them together and give them a single direction, your direction. Confidence is also needed and, most especially, motivation. The card can, in fact, indicate new motivation or inspiration, which gets a stagnant situation moving again.
