Hotter than July

Tying up some loose ends at the end of July... this is stuff I was gonna post on separately, and just decided to do it ALL AT ONCE. Most include some fancy graphics!


My supervisor is changing jobs, and I am heartbroken. She has been my lifeline for four years now. So, I'm going through a lot emotionally. (I believe they call it "abandonment issues"?) As Stevie told us, it's hotter than July, but when you're moving in the positive/Your destination is the brightest star.

I wish her all the best, and I know she needs to ADVANCE in her profession, but I still want her to be with ME every day. :(


First my personality-type, which is ENFP. This is the third time I've done one of these, and I always get the same, so that is interesting.

Click to view my Personality Profile page

General: ENFPs are both "idea"-people and "people"-people, who see everyone and everything as part of an often bizarre cosmic whole. They want to both help (at least, their own definition of "help") and be liked and admired by other people, on both an individual and a humanitarian level. They are interested in new ideas on principle, but ultimately discard most of them for one reason or another.

Social/Personal Relationships: ENFPs have a great deal of zany charm, which can ingratiate them to the more stodgy types in spite of their unconventionality. They are outgoing, fun, and genuinely like people. As SOs/mates they are warm, affectionate (lots of PDA), and disconcertingly spontaneous. However, attention span in relationships can be short; ENFPs are easily intrigued and distracted by new friends and acquaintances, forgetting about the older ones for long stretches at a time. Less mature ENFPs may need to feel they are the center of attention all the time, to reassure them that everyone thinks they're a wonderful and fascinating person.

ENFPs often have strong, if unconventional, convictions on various issues related to their Cosmic View. They usually try to use their social skills and contacts to persuade people gently of the rightness of these views; this sometimes results in their neglecting their nearest and dearest while flitting around trying to save the world.

Work Environment: ENFPs are pleasant, easygoing, and usually fun to work with. They come up with great ideas, and are a major asset in brainstorming sessions. Followthrough tends to be a problem, however; they tend to get bored quickly, especially if a newer, more interesting project comes along. They also tend to be procrastinators, both about meeting hard deadlines and about performing any small, uninteresting tasks that they've been assigned. ENFPs are at their most useful when working in a group with a J or two to take up the slack.

ENFPs hate bureaucracy, both in principle and in practice; they will always make a point of launching one of their crusades against some aspect of it.
First of all, there is nothing BIZARRE about the Cosmic Whole, it's a pretty serious matter.

And: ZANY CHARM! If my blog wasn't already named DEAD AIR, I might go for that one. Speaking of blogs, mine has just been rated:

I just tried it, and my blog is rated G. I guess it is Okay to say "potty"!

JoJo said...

Hmmm. Maybe "dead" is a dirty word if it's paired with "sex with the". lol You know, necrophilia and all.

white rabbit said...

'Proper and British' :-O

I was doing my lawyer bit - I try to avoid serious as much as possible but sometimes ya just gotta do it ;)


Thank you Daisy :)

white rabbit said...

ps JoJo - talking of lawyer, it is my unpleasant duty to inform you that necrophilia is a criminal offence. At least it is here. Oddly, it wasn't until a couple of years ago.

Thanks so much for the award. About coming up with a catchier name for the blog, have you considered that the present name might represent an incredibly esoteric and complex numerological message that takes years to figure out?

Maitri Libellule said...

Thank you so much for the award honey. I'm pleased and proud and it's up on my website now! There is a link to you and to the 7 blogs I sent the award to and I've written them all.

As far as the words.... uh... I do use "Gee Willikers" a lot. I'm a "For All Audiences" kind of blog. I hope you won't hold that against me! (Snicker) :o)

Big hugs and blessings all around,


white rabbit said...

Mike - yeah, I just considered that. Took about 2 seconds...


JoJo said...

White Rabbit - It's illegal here too, I think. But people in Washington seem to prefer to have sex with animals. Seriously.

Google "sex with horse enumclaw" and you'll see what I mean.
