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.

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:
