Everyone make themselves a wishlist?
Oh my, it really is that time of the year!
I had not even written up a wishlist yet. If anything I may just ask for a bunch of CD's from various artists or bands and what have you. The question however is what albums to wish for. Suggestions, anyone?
THIS WORLD IS MADE OF LOVE AND PEACE!
If you block/ignore someone from ending you PMs, when the try to send you one does it tell them?
Depends on if Animal Collective or Radiohead have released anything recently >_>
And Tortoise hasn't released an album for a year, and I don't expect another one for another 5 years. : (
I keep on accumulating Steve Reich CDs, and that makes me a happy man, but that's a very acquired taste.
oh sorry misunderstood your question. I think you get an error and it doesn't allow the PM to be sent. But the one who did the act of blocking will not be notified

To sort of explain the "junior high personality test" that EmperorCharlamagne referred to it as, the Myers-Briggs typology test is actually a very accurate test that shows how one perceives the world. Despite the fact that uninformed people would simply refer to it as a simple personality test, it is much more than that. What it intends to do is show how you see the world around you, how you interact with the world, and determine certain aspects of life that you find to be important or not.
It isn't just a random facebook test where some teenie bopper created a bunch of questions and then threw in some randomly generated title results as rewards. Nearly a century of studies in the psychology community has gone into tweaking and improving the process, questions, and results. It is not only popular with professors who are working with new freshman trying to figure out who they are in a new and confusing environment, but many fortune 500 companies use this test as a barometer when hiring new employees for management and executive positions. And if that means nothing to you, then let me explain it by saying those positions are typically the positions that people are paid six figures or more annually. It's not slouch jobs that these companies use this test for.
Many of you who go to college will probably take this test at least once, if not several times. It is often used by professors who are teaching the "welcome to college" class that is typically labeled as a "University College" course worth about 1-3 credits that basically teaches students how to be successful with their college career. It is used by these professors to help show students their tendencies as individuals, likely career choices that would fit their personality, and areas a student might need to work on in terms of social interaction to help give them a better shot at reaching their career goals.
It is for different reasons companies use this as a form of the hiring process. It helps to determine those who are applying for a job are more naturally inclined to fit the atmosphere, philosophy, and direction that the company wishes to pursue. For example if you are the CEO of an up and coming company who wants to be aggressive in the market place and challenge well established competitors immediately, it would be wise to make sure you hire a management team that is driven by outward team success. If a company hires someone who is introverted and individually driven it is more likely that the company would falter. Because they will naturally value their individual results and rewards more so than the company's.
Is it a guarantee? No. Is it 100% accurate? No.
But, I would recommend that everyone take it at least one. And spend at least 5 minutes thinking about each question. Because if you take it quickly you will almost always come up with different results. A professor that had me take it in a freshman college course, public speaking 101, told us to spend 5 minutes on each question. And during that five minutes come up with 5 examples from our lives that fit the question. Then answer the question accordingly.
We took the tests the first day of the class and he kept our results, never telling us what they were. Then the second to last day of the class he had us retake them again. Every single student in my class was in the same temperament each time they took the test. Some ended up with different personalities, but the fact that everyone scored in the same temperament each time they took it was very telling of the amount of time and energy and thought that has been put into the test, and how accurate it was. For the most part it is very accurate and should be taken seriously. Cause you might have to actually take this test if you are applying for certain jobs with specific companies.
I just thought I would share this since people weren't actually understanding what this test is actually about. It's not just a personality test that tells you if you like large crowds, or are a momma's boy, or should really start listening to more hip hop. It intends to, and often correctly does, give insights to the individual's psychological makeup. Which is important to not just know, but to understand.
As SBB said, he knows himself fine. But just because you know who you are doesn't always mean you recognize your weaknesses socially or where you need to improve when dealing with certain aspects of life. Especially when regarding one's desired career. This test can help those that don't actually sit down and think about it to realize what type of person they are, and most likely what type of person other people see them as. Not everyone is as sure of themselves as others, such as you SBB, might be.
And please note I used the phrase "sure of themselves" and not the phrase "full of themselves." They mean two totally different things and I don't want people misunderstanding my intentions with that comment.
In case you didn't feel like reading the long explanation, I'll make a short version here to end this post. The Briggs-Myers type indicator is important in a lot of ways. You should take it seriously and use it to grow as a person. Because it does give insights about the individual that one might not realize on their own.

I found it a very much interesting read. I took that test thinking only briefly about each question, thinking my first idea would be the best; but I guess I'll re-do it sometime.
On a side note, we haven't seen you around much lately, where have you been? Or is it because you've just been posting with your alt, InvisibleObserver?
well about the test, i think its accurate for me cause ive taken such tests a few times and the result is 'always' the same (INTP - engineer) so something must be accurate about it.

Sure, they are fun, but if you would rather hear from a test that you're a hard worker, and not tell yourself that or have your friends tell you that, you really need to learn more about yourself.
Even though you will answer with the truth to your fullest extent, they are still inaccurate at times, like what Gravey said.
I remember hearing this phrase over and over, "No one can ever tell you what you want to be. Only you can."
So yeah. Ask yourself these sorts of questions that you see on the personality test before clicking or writing away. I know it's nice to see what your traits match up with, but wouldn't it be better if you experimented different jobs in life?

You're nothing but an egotistic bastard that obviously rushes through things. If you take time to think about every question on these tests, maybe you won't get random results and bitch about it.
I don't know if the test is somethnig that tells you where to improve per say - it shows you what your personality is- everyone has their strong and weak points - and due to your personality - you may not NEED to improve one or the other. If you are an introverted person lookign for a position in a large firm then perhaps you really aren't suited for that position and should find something that is geared more towards your specific personality and needs.

Given the many years of space between tests and how I have indeed changed over the years, I don't think it's odd that my results have changed.
I wasn't bitching by the way, I was being facetious.

How the hell do you code that CD image of your song into posts without just putting a stupid ass noob like link to your song instead? I'm tired of not knowing how to do it after 5 years of being here.

Just post the link of the song. Don't use any HTML. Copy the full link of the song and paste the link in a line of its own.
So like this:

I have it.
Last Wednesday, i got the flu. I spent Thursday, Friday and the first half of Saturday in bed. After that, it got better and on Sunday i felt ok.
Sunday evening though, my eyes were starting to hurt and tear a bit.
This morning when i woke up, my eyelids were attached to each other because a huge amount of dried tears.
So i went to a doctor, got some eye gel and now i'll be probably ill the whole week -_-

My eyes have been having eye strain within the last two weeks, it's a pain in the ass; I can't use the computer very much which is hard to do for me. My left eye was blood shot at first, but it seems to be going away, still a bit red though. Fun stuff, eh?

This girl I was going out with today ended up having an eye infection. Terrible business. She doesn't want to get close to me with an eye infection as it is contagious.
