@bluemele With your "we're all brothers and sisters" talk, I had you pegged as an INFJ!

Yah, I do believe we can fight our natural genetic predisposition. It easy to care and requires me to slip out of my normal routine which isn't natural, but feels 'right'.....

Just ran across this...I too am on aquarians sht list...(something I questioned in one of his threads) he tolerates no dissent.

I think everyone is. I think he just doesn't want anyone posting on his thread if I am not mistaken, so probably not anything to ruffle anyone's feathers over.

And the list just gets longer and longer....

It seems he is prejudice against INTJ's, we should report him!

He's probably doing himself a disfavor, though. It's not possible to "ignore" the market's opinion, so it's probably a good idea to acknowledge that others' viewpoints might differ from one's own. Being so irrationally emotional is hardly a good trait for a trader.

And just to clarify: I wasn't even being rude to him, I was simply stating my honest opinion.

At least to some extent. I'm trying hard to become less of an egotistical bastard, but it's a long road ahead...

Apparently I am in the INTJ group as well. The crooked pictures, dry sense of humor, interruption of alone time, very forgetful.

Q: Why does my INTJ just “shut down” at the end of the day?

A: Our minds are always buzzing with plans and theories, and we cannot voluntarily get it to stop. But even an Indy 500 car will coast to a halt after it runs out of gas. When we are very tired our brains slow down, and we become normal or even a bit retarded. If we start asking you to repeat what you just told us but more slowly this time, and/or if we can no longer perform simple routine tasks like computing an orbital transfer burn or finding a memory leak in 10,000 lines of C++ code, you know it’s time for us to call it a day.

When I am burned out I am on a 30 second delay..I always ask my wife to repeat a questions. To damn hard think when your burned out. Same thing in the morning... I refuse to answer questions before I wake up.

Q: My INTJ employee consistently strolls into work an hour late and leaves an hour late, every day. He/she seems to make their own hours, however the job gets done rather well. Should I feel disrespected?

A: Time is relative to the INTJ, and getting the job done right is paramount. We do not like wasting our time, so we will often adjust our schedules accordingly to miss AM and PM rush-hour traffic.

Ok, so like I did this during my second job. If I left @ 7:45 I would get there at 8:01. To get there at 5 till I would have to leave @ 7:20 because of traffic. As a result of leaving @ 7:45 I was always a minute late. My boss confronted me about it. He told me I needed to leave earlier from home. I told my boss I refused to leave 25 minutes earlier just to save 6 minutes and clock in on time. It was a complete waste of my time... He wrote me up!

From INTJ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hallmarks of the INTJ include independence of thought and a desire for efficiency. They work best when given autonomy and creative freedom. They harbor an innate desire to express themselves by conceptualizing their own intellectual designs.

I have a great need for efficiency... Nothing irritates me more than a broken process. Conceptualizing and creating is what I do.. I love it..

Now I know!!

No, I am an Aquarius as well so I guess that nails it down to INTJ discrimination as Lornz suggested....time to file a lawsuit.

Damn, and here I was about to renounce my skepticism and start pinning all my hopes and dreams to astrology.

Please stay on-track. Trading is a Ponzi scheme, which feeds on new traders.

And astrology is very useful, as it effectively contributes to confuse those aspiring traders.

A confused trader is what is required to take the other side of your trade.

Do not hesitate to continue to link your fate to astrology, but let me know which instruments you trade and at what times.

I'm also an Aquarius... That's why I was so hurt, I thought we were brethren!

Please don't make fun of Astrology, @Fat Tails . I take that stuff very seriously!
