I think I DO know more now smile!

Online friends are great. But I do agree that it would be nice to have some of them to hang out with on the weekends...

I’m an ENTP, almost the exact opposite!

oh wow, Ashley, we are almost opposite! I match the description of an iSTJ so well that it’s funny! smile

Great list! And I can’t believe employers that won’t let you wear any jewelry exist!

What a great list, Kristine! I like your made-up words a lot. smile

Oh, I haven’t finished reading yet, but legos are for girls, too! I hated dolls as a child, but even seeing legos in a store makes me yearn for kid-dom again!!!

i’m going to do one of these things one day... i was actually trying to search for something... you talk about work so much... what do you do for a living (and you don’t have to name names)? besides playing in MT code all day long. LOL smile
