Hero Blues

Well, she begged, she cried
She pleaded with me all last night
Well, she begged, she cried
She pleaded with me all last night
She wants me to go out
And find somebody to fight

She reads too many books
She got new movies inside her head
She reads too many books
She got movies inside her head
She wants me to walk out running
She wants me to crawl back dead

You need a different kinda man, babe
One that can grab and hold your heart
Need a different kind of man, babe
One that can hold and grab your heart
You need a different kind of man, babe
You need Napoleon Boneeparte

Divine Discontent

Whenever we are not living in our "true place" we experience what is called "Divine Discontent." It is an inner urging that calls us forth to our next growth opportunity.

Chapter 61: Donkey

What is the difference between a Racehorse and a Donkey ESFJ.

A Donkey has big ears.

Vigilante scene.

Orbiting too close to the Sun

This is a description of the Mercury followers ESFJ. Centaurs is a polite name. Cooled off they appear in the asteroid belt between the Terran Empire and the Jovian Planets. Chiron is civilised. And then there are the non-aligned extra-terrestrial Comets or wandering stars.

In the sexuality of the ancient Romans, a tribas was a woman who wanted to be an active partner or "top" in intercourse. The Romans did not classify according to homosexuality and heterosexuality. They instead had words for the active partner and the passive one.

Cat Weasel

Anybody know about this type?

NFPI- "performance artist"-This type almost always manifests as a "journey of shame" gone too far. They usually only succeed in making other people uncomfortable.

Their trouble comes from the Cats ISFP.

Helicopter parent is a colloquial, early 21st-century term for a parent who pays extremely close attention to his or her child's or children's experiences and problems, particularly at educational institutions.

Old style Nepotism.

This can be a dangerous political event if Black-hawking is involved, smearing a rival (or even arranging an ambush attack) for the member of your tribe or family.

They tend to succumb easily to intellectual arrogance and are impossible to argue with because they are frequently dismissive and closed-minded, accepting only certain kinds of information as valid regardless of the nature of the topic. This wouldn't be quite so problematic if they didn't like to argue so much. It seems to be something they do for fun, just to practice getting their minds into every little crevice of an idea.

They are much too detail oriented, focusing on specifics when the general concept is actually more important, and will spend more time picking at and criticizing any imperfect details in an example or analogy than trying to understand the overall meaning of the broader expression. This leads to many arguments on linguistics that never get past the point of trying to define terms in a tedious, meticulous way, even if the original point being argued had nothing to do with how words are used and was supposed to be about something more interesting and important.

They are impossible to satisfy. No matter what a person does right, or how brilliant an idea is, there will always be criticism for not doing better or taking it to the next step. There is no way for an INFP to please an INTP in order to achieve a feeling of security in the social relationship. There will always be a nagging feeling that nothing will ever be good enough and that all efforts are completely wasted. This means that eventually I will give up trying to please an INTP, and instead of breaking myself to pieces struggling for approval, I eventually learn to just avoid the person. With an INTP, I never end up with a sufficient level of security to feel safe being open and intimate about ideas and feelings, so any conversation is pointless. I need to feel safe in order to talk about my more complex ideas, and if I know that something I find interesting enough to share or speculate about will be cut apart with a scalpel, I would rather keep it to myself. I always end up feeling guarded with INTPs, even the ones I like. I don't know if I will ever be able to trust one not to hurt me, even if they don't always do it on purpose.

This is the moralist version of the INFP.

F-type-"the nurturers"

FINP- "the moralist"- The SJ of the INFP universe, this subtype carries a very robust moral code and is not shy about expressing it.

The NP in the INTP reacts against it. This usually means the influence of the dreaded ESFJ. Suspend Judgement.

PS: The INTP does not feel safe because of the ESFJs. Your consultant should be the INFJ Skylark and your best match should be an ENTP, and your description does sound more like that of an ENTP. The INTP does not like security (prison) whereas the ENTP specifies the prison conditions (sometimes and often not). But the Phoenix version of the INTP accepts security.

Social Order of the Comanche

Comanche groups did not have a single acknowledged leader. Instead, a small number of generally recognized leaders acted as counsel and advisors to the group as a whole. These included the "peace chief," the members of the council, and the "war chief."

The peace chief was usually an older individual, who could bring his experience to the task of advising. There was no formal inauguration or election to the position, it was one of general consensus.

The council made decisions about where the band should hunt, whether they should war against their enemies, and whether to ally themselves with other bands. Any member could speak at council meetings, but the older men usually did most of the talking.

In times of war, the band selected a war chief. To be chosen for this position, a man had to prove he was a brave fighter. He also had to have the respect of all the other warriors in the band. While the band was at war, the war chief was in charge, and all the warriors had to obey him. After the conflict was over, however, the war chief's authority ended.

The Comanche men did most of the hunting and all of the fighting in the wars. They learned how to ride horses when they were young and were eager to prove themselves in battle. On the plains, Comanche women carried out the demanding tasks of cooking, skinning animals, setting up camp, rearing children, and transporting household goods.

In the Land of the Blind, the One-eyed Panda is King

Chapter 60: In the Land of the Blind, the One-eyed Panda is King (actually a surrogate Queen).

Disorder: the Crisis

The Panda has now been identified as a type of INFP (FPNI) (not as wrongly identified in earlier messages)
and she wants everything put back in exactly the right place.

Or NIPF-"master of puppets" or one of the other types.

Correction: not actually really in charge because that is the Wolf ENTJ. But for the story, in the Graphic Design department the Skylarks have been "larking" about rearranging the design and it has to be altered back to the conventional style and this means it misses the deadline.

And the Panda gets the blame for not keeping discipline and all the girls and wimps are in big trouble.



Other studies have suggested that people might be using odor cues associated with the immune system to select mates who are not closely related to themselves. Using a brain imaging technique, Swedish researchers have shown that homosexual and heterosexual males' brains respond differently to two odors that may be involved in sexual arousal, and that the homosexual men respond in the same way as heterosexual women, though it could not be determined whether this was cause or effect.

They hang the man, and flog the woman,
That steals the goose from off the common;
But let the greater villain loose,
That steals the common from the goose.

Wyrd Sisters

Wyrd is a concept in Old English culture roughly corresponding to fate or personal destiny. The word is ancestral to Modern English weird, which retains its original meaning only dialectally. The cognate term in old Norse is Urðr, with a similar meaning, but also personalized as one of the Norns, Urðr (anglicized as Urd) and appearing in the name of the holy well Urðarbrunnr in Norse mythology. The concept corresponding to "fate, destiny" in Old Norse is Ørlǫg.

A Skylark (INFJ) interviewing a Green Turtle (XNTP) who transforms into a Butterfly (ESFP)

"Penny for your thoughts?"
"You are getting them for nuthin'"

Yesterday's sound recording is a work of art. It is entitled:

A Skylark (INFJ) interviewing a Green Turtle (XNTP) who slithers away like a Snake (ENTP) and then transforms into a Butterfly (ESFP). This is an example of animal morph-shifting in real time.

In Greek mythology, Nemesis (in Greek, Νέμεσις), also called Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia ("the goddess of Rhamnous") at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (Extreme haughtiness or arrogance). The Greeks personified vengeful fate as a remorseless goddess. The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νέμειν, nemein, meaning "to give what is due". The Romans equated the Greek Nemesis with Invidia (Aronoff 2003).
Nemesis is now often used as a term to describe one's worst enemy, normally someone or something that is the exact opposite of oneself but is also somehow similar. For example, Professor Moriarty is frequently described as the nemesis of Sherlock Holmes.
