Meme time

I’ve been tagged to answer three questions. And it’s all about me. So, here’s the questions:

1. My: Youve heard the saying Id give my right arm for. So, what would you give your right arm for?

2. Me: Whats one word that describes how you want people to see you?

3. Meme: If you could be any blogger, which blogger would you be and why?

And here are my answers:

1. World peace. Yeah, it’s corny. But, honestly, that or a cure for all disease, poverty, etc. would be about the only thing I’d give my right arm for. I mean, I use it all the time, so it better be worth it. And my sacrifice may as well benefit everyone.

2. I had a conversation with Joe Huffman and Kevin at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous in Reno about personality types of bloggers. It seems that there’s a certain type of personality per some test that occurs in less than one percent of the population. However, about 30% of bloggers fit that personality type according to data at Tim Lambert’s. I don’t recall taking a test but my personality type, per Kevin, fits it. And I don’t know what it’s called and I’m too busy to look it up (more on that later) and would rather spend this bit of free time blogging than googling. I don’t know that I fit that type but, from my psychology and counseling days, I do know a few things about me. And these things fit the type that Kevin described to me. Two characteristics that I have are that a) my self-esteem is unusually high and b) I have a very low need for the approval of others. In short, I don’t generally care what most people think about me. I’m not sure but I think that personality type is known as prick.

3. Billy Watson. Oh, and that link is not safe for work. No, I kid. I’m quite content being myself, thanks.

And, if you blog, consider yourself tagged. I’ve also been tagged by another meme but I haven’t gotten to it because that one is, like, work. And I’ve been busy. How busy? Well, and no offense to beavers, but either:

1) busier than a three-legged dog trying to take a piss on a frozen lake


2) busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest

Both analogies involve legs. And one was stolen from Tom.

Update: Thanks to Phelps, I found it:

Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise — and INTJs can have several — they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don’t know.

See, prick.

    Given the meme, perhaps;
    “Busier than a one-armed man in a wall-paper hanging contest.”

    I’ve usually used “busier than a cat in a cage full of canaries” or “busier than a hooerhouse when the fleet’s in”.

  3. Phelps Says:

    The type is iNTj under Myers-Briggs. I are one. We used to be called Masterminds, but that made a lot of non-Masterminds edgy, so some people prefer “Scientist”.

  4. Bitter Says:

    I came out as an INTJ, too. However, I am thisclose to swtiching and being an INFJ. I like to think the areas where I cross over take the “prick”-ness out. 🙂

  5. tgirsch Says:

    Heh. I really like the three-legged-dog thing. 🙂

    Look at all us introverts postin’ on teh Intarwebs.

  9. jed Says:

    Les: So, you’re an oil additive?

    Last time I took the Myers/Briggs, I came out INTJ, or maybe ENTJ? Whichever, it was borderline on the I/E aspect anyways. That was quite a while ago, and I suspect I’m more strongly introverted now.

    ESFP 78/1/12/11 (the only strong part was the “E” — on the other stuff, I was close to being on the fence.)

    Uncle says everyone should consider themselves tagged with the three questions that are going around. Might as well give it a shot. 1. My: Youve heard the saying Id give my right arm for. So, what would you give your…

    I’m INTJ too, but I seem to recall being a Guardian rather than a Mastermind.
