Your Type is
ISTJ
Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging
Strength of the preferences %
44 1 25 11

I honestly don't know what the numbers mean, but I hopea one isn't bad.

I am:
moderately expressed introvert

slightly expressed sensing personality

moderately expressed thinking personality

slightly expressed judging personality


It left out the part of me being a hypocrite, these type of test don't generally score that. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Trey but my friends call me Brave, Archer or Brave Archer on account of me being a Saggitarius. I'mfrom lower Delaware and am a big fan of literature. I am tall and keep in shape, I am a big fan of boxing and as hard as this may be for some of you to hear I think it's the most honest of all sports when determining who is naturally better. One on One, drug test'd befor and after the fight and 90% of the time the better man actually wins. I work in sales and am about to start college this winter, i'm 23 and put it off long enough. I was a hopless romantic until I realiz'd it wasn't getting me anywhere and now I just don't give it a damn. I'm still all for finding that 'one' but i'm not looking-- if that makes any sense. I love R&B music, takes me through do many different emotions, my favorite movies are Lean on Me and Tombstone. My favorite writers are James Baldwin, Mark Twain and my favorite books are The Count of Monte Cristo and The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley and a Tale of Two Cities.


Let me stop befor I tell you my whole life story and bore you.
Why don't you really tell me how you feel!

Good to get a bit of background on you there Trey.

It's all too easy to be anonymous on forums like this, but personally, I like to know just a little about the people I'm interacting with :D

We're all hypocrites!

I have a lot of respect for boxers. I used to know a guy who boxed seriously, and it was amazing how much dedication and energy went into it. I tried it once, and I'll never do it again! :oops:

I read Giovanni's Room by Baldwin, and it was very well written but depressing. I will probably try to read more by him because his writing is so captivating. It basically reads like poetry!

Well, maybe it's best to be balanced in moderation. :mrgreen: Malia, I noticed you are the only "E". Sorry, you must be going crazy in a room full of neurotic introverts!

Oh, dear. How to describe him? He is a foodie -- the host of a show called "Good Eats." He is either very learned -- or has very good writers!

Being a cooking fan, have you ever thought what you would serve Mr. Keats should you somehow find yourself back in time and hostess to an afternoon tea and poetry reading?
