so as i was saying, later, after game-playing was done for the night, two people in the group quickly asked me if i knew what my myers' brigg tempermant was. i said i did and they were like, "okay wait, let us guess!" and so i did. they both thought i was INTP, which is funny if you know what that means (I'm ENFP the last time i checked but think the E might be an I now actually). they both said i was a "P" (perceiving) b/c i didn't seem to like to play by the rules and always was seeking away from "J" (justice/judgement). interesting observation, right? then they thought i was "T" (thinking) primarily b/c of my stretched and "out of the box" answers. which, is just really funny b/c i'm probably extreme "F" (feeling---opposite of thinking) and so it struck me as humurous that they would say that. obviously they had never seen me at the end of watching a movie like "about schmidt," or "finding nemo." anyways, i found the night to be a complete delight. there's something just downright hilarious when people get you so right and when they get you so wrong, when it comes to what kind of personality you are. it's like you can shocked and appalled at the same time. whatever. all i know is, it was a very funny evening. hope yours was equally enjoyable. good night.

small group stuff.
okay, so it's my second time attending the mosaic movie small group (or "life group" as they're called here at Mosaic) and i hate to admit this, but i think i'm going to love it. at tonight's get together, we played games, talked about TV shows i had never seen, and collectively as a group, i was psychoanalyzed at the end as to what myers' brigg 4-letter tempermant i was. it's pretty neat to have people who don't know you, don't know your background, your family, or anyone else related to you, try and "pick" you out and "place" you into categories from only two casual, short visits. at the end of a much heated scattegories game (i was willing to bend the categories more than one or two people wanted to---for instance, when the subject was "STATES"...and the letter had to start with "B", no one else came up with a state that began with the letter "B", but I casually and confidently said I wasn't thinking in terms of states as in America, and that I was thinking in more of philosophical "states" of mind and such. of course, they didn't know me well enough to know that i was half-kidding, but anyways, so I answered/offered "BEING" as my answer.) to my surprise, they all were shocked and said things like, "i've never thought of that...but yeah, that makes sense! wow! so creative!"....i was giggling on the inside, even though i was personally convinced that "yes, it did make sense, and it was a perfectly good answer!"
