keirsey.com and..... "my temperament(s)" (some inside info on... me, basically)

Here's what I currently could be defined as (and my test result when I gave the most accurate answers possible):

But this is not a picture of how I would like to be understood, in terms of the future...

 

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

A more desirable temperament...

This... is what I would like to become, at some point in my life:

I seek a greater stability in my life (Along Maslow's hierarchy of needs) than what is currently an incredibly limited stability of what  I can appreciate in my immediate and not-so-immediate surroundings. I have a desire to leave my mark upon the world, and to influence the actions of others even after was is likely an inevitable death; I do not want to be forgotten after a hundred years time. I desire to develop leadership skills, charisma, "machismo", social power, social influence, staggering environmental influence, "unlimited ambition", and a potentially unlimited psychosocial development, as undoubtedly Brian Sapient has spent a great deal of his life developing within himself and others. I offer myself as a gift, rather than a burden, to RRS. Even if whatever gift(s) I have to offer right now are, in fact, quite materialistically limited. (And, in fact, quite immaterial.)

"And that's all I got to say about thhhaattt."

What the hell does "athropic" mean anyways? Is that even a word? No dictionary or google matches come up for it...

 You're probably kidding,

 You're probably kidding, but just in case... they made an error.  The word they were looking for was anthropic.

Yah, it was a misspelling of anthropic. I forget the post where I saw it but the context made it fairly humorous and I ran with it. If it means anything, the “a” prefix would be a negation of the rest of the term.

It wasn't really that important... except for a sudden onset of clinical depression, and an exhaustive battle against a 'sadness with no real reason', (save for an accelerated rate of seratonin reabsorption).

(VERY) Ironic thing about

(VERY) Ironic thing about one of the images I've posted- I remember hearing somewhere that Mike Wallace became deeply depressed after making a particularly harsh critique of the US Military and Intelligence Bureaus back in the early... 80s, I believe; that they had intentionally created more enemies internationally than they originally had. He spoke his piece about corrupt military commanders, bureaucrats, and politicians and they gave him a very nasty political backlash for his whistle-blowing. So he started showing up for work late, felt exhausted at weird times, had occasional moments of "no, I don't want to deal with this today", and of course, skipped an important appearance on The Bill Donahue Show at one point -with which he phoned in his appearance eventually.

 

Very ironic....
