  1. Things that make me angry on Monday part 2: #ForgetTheFrock It might be apparent by now that I am not a religious person. Nor am I a fashion person. I live for my big comfortable T-shirts. So it may seem out of character to so ardently defend the practice of wearing frilly frocks to church for Easter Sunday. However, the #ForgetTheFrock movement is such a classic example of altruistic immorality it cannot be ignored. This is the concept: To raise awareness of global poverty the productive and free are being encoura
  2. Things that anger me on Monday: Outrageous American lawsuits. A parasite should not be able to walk into a productive business (be it McDonald's size behemoth or a small upstart begun with a dream and someone’s life savings) get a paper cut and sue them for every cent of wealth and value they have created. Our court system should be an instrument of justice. It should NOT be a lottery, an avenue of wealth redistribution or a back door for activists to shut down or damage businesses they are unhappy with. Nor is “emotional pain and suffering” an objective value wort
  3. This commercial always makes me choke up to! But for some reason I relate it more to my writing. I keep at it!
  4. I am pretty convinced I have done damage to my body with the things I have done to it. I have learned about the diet/binge cycle the hard way and it is not a good pattern. I also don't want to end up like my dad who is overweight, a Type 2 diabetic, has had several heart attacks, and still ignores his doctor's advice. That just does not look like a good quality of life.
  5. I try! Since I started reading Ayn Rand's works, I have been trying to think more with my logic instead of just my emotions.
  6. Both my body and my brain have been put through hell the last few years. The recovery will take quite a while! I do read a lot and exercise a lot and I try to keep my focus on my writing. The dark thoughts still sometimes emerge though......
  7. I stand pretty firmly behind my work in Myers Briggs. It has helped me tremendously in my life and I have seen it help others too. When something proves true you keep it. When something proves irrational you throw it out.
  8. Over the last couple of days I have gotten a lot of work done on the book I am writing. I have written the beginning and the end and have an outline drawn in between. Plus I have done part of the rough draft. That is not bad! I have the whole book in my head but getting it onto paper (or in this case computer screen) is a different matter.
  9. I have tested more along a spectrum. I am an INFJ most often but have sometimes tested as an INFP and occasionally I feel more like an INTJ. I find other Fs hard to relate to. They seem to use their Feeling function in a completely different way than I do.
  10. I did not find it flip. I found it the perfect thing to say. Thank you! I am in counseling. I don't know if that will be effective or not.
  11. I became a psychology student because I started reading about the Myers Briggs and its personality profiles. Has anyone else taken the test and if so what is your type? I am an INFJ. If you have not taken the test you can also take it here: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp P.S. Ayn Rand is often described as an INTJ.
  12. http://newsletters.getresponse.com/archive/innermammalinstitute/Why-I-dont-cite-studies-in-my-writing-282723805.html?e=&u=FDX6 Here is one Dr. Loretta Breuning's brilliant articles. If you are not familiar with her she is an author and neuroscientist who approaches her work from a very Objectivist perspective. I love her books and her writing and she sheds a lot of light on the "studies" we see repeated on the news every day.
  13. I do not get our modern society. I am 5 foot 1. I weigh 140 pounds. I wear a size 12 and while I am trying to lose weight I am badly disordered. I will go without eating for fairly long periods of time before I break down and binge. I am not making excuses for the mess I am but I am not interfering in anyone else's life. I understand and accept that most men are not going to want to date me. I do not have unrealistic expectations. I do not expect to have another relationship-not now and maybe not ever. So I am not out there on dating sites or in any other scene trying to meet someone
  14. I own many of Nathaniel Branden's books and I am kind of amazed I did not think to look in them before asking the question! I actually discovered Objectivism through his books. That said I am not sure how helpful his advice and example will be. I really don't see myself becoming involved in another relationship now! I think moving will be the thing that helps most. It will not be quite so difficult to get out somewhere where I am not constantly passing places we used to go together or places I associate with him. Sometimes a change of scenery helps many problems in life!
  15. Yes. I am defining the relationship as any intimate one. It does not have to be a marriage but I am wondering about how people have gotten through the death of an intimate partner and how long that process took.
