That horrible month meme...

Okay morganaus started this crazy thing. I suppose I can play too. As a caveat, I will say that I do not believe in any way in astrology or any other purely arbitrary means of describing people, predicting their actions, or the circumstances which will befall them. The descriptions of people based upon birth month below, are all general enough to describe pretty much anyone. That said, I noted that people such as morganaus and valkyrieblue are crossing out parts that don't fit them and adding editorial comments. This tends to make the description more accurate and personalized and renders it somewhat useful as a tool of self-classification. That being said, here's my month, October:

OCTOBER:
Loves to chat. [sort of -- mostly in person and with one or two people at a time] Loves those who loves them. Loves to take things at the center. [What the hell does that mean? I do like boiling the things I'm discussing or considering down to essentials.] Inner and physical beauty. [Oh that's really specific] Lies but doesn't pretend. [Say rather: pretends (only in fun -- I'm reasonably grounded) but doesn't lie] Gets angry often. [somewhat guilty, but I am by no means "hot tempered." Actually, I pride myself on being laid back and unflappable.] Treats friends importantly. Always making friends. [Outside of LJ I am actually quite reticent.] Easily hurt but recovers easily. [Recovers easily is true, but easily hurt depends upon how heavily I am invested in the person doing the hurting. I tend to be careful to avoid attachment with people whom I believe are cruel.] Daydreamer. [Oh very.] Opinionated. [ditto -- just ask me -- If I have any information at all on the topic, I probably have an opinion on it.] Does not care what others think. [Actually, I DO care, out of curiosity, but the opinion of others really doesn't influence me unduly unless I believe it has merit on its own grounds -- I am what I am.] Emotional. [Demonstrative when I have reason, but very very careful about with whom.] Decisive. [What's that? Maybe. Gee, on second thought, maybe not.] Strong clairvoyance. [I trust and cultivate my intuition, but I do not believe in clairvoyance, extra-sensory perception, or the supernatural.] Loves travel, the arts and literature. [There are people who don't?] Touchy [sometimes] and easily jealous. [Ha! I don't think so, and neither does my wandering future ex-wife.] Concerned. Loves outdoors. Just and fair. Spendthrift. Easily influenced. [Actually, I'm somewhat skeptical and must have a rational, logical argument to be swayed.] Easily loses confidence. [Yeah, sometimes I do.] Loves children.

MARCH:
Attractive personality.sexy. Affectionate.Shy and reserved. Secretive. Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic. Loves peace and serenity. Sensitive to others. Loves to serve others. Easily angered. Trustworthy. Appreciative and returns kindness. Observant and assesses others. **Revengeful.**VENGEFUL, perhaps. Loves to dream and fantasize. Loves traveling. Loves attention. Hasty decisions in choosing partners. Loves home decors. Musically talented. Loves special things. Moody.

Why Muse, what a pleasant surprise! It's been four days: I thought you were taking an LJ vacation or something. I hope the roommate thing is going okay for you and that he's not getting on your nerves too much. Are you aware that the time-stamp on your comment says you posted it Nov. 13th at 3:28 am? Right now, it is Nov. 12th at 8:35 pm. Either there is a clock seriously wrong somewhere or else you are somewhere in Western Africa, Ireland, or Iceland.

How uncanny that you only had to cross out two things on the list. Are you really vengeful? I can think of two ugly, non-prince toads that you have mentioned in your life who are mercifully still apparently walking around upright -- although I guess you have stopped talking to them, which is no doubt, a harsh fate. ; )

How does the musically talented part fit in, specifically? Do you play a musical instrument (I don't think I've read where you ever mentioned it), or have you had voice training or are you just talking about having a discerning ear and an appreciation for good music? The phillistines on your list didn't vote to hear you sing when you did that audio post, and I was so hoping that you would, or at least do a reading.

I have flirted with a flute, the piano, and the b-flat tennor saxophone, back when I was in junior high and high school, (the sax was the longest, at about 3 years) but never really got very good with them before I quit to keep them from interfering with my schoolwork.


Just as our friend montecristo, I was also concerned about your well-being, dear Muse! See what an effect your short absence has on us poor mortals?

Hasty decisions in choosing partners. Loves home decors.

Hmmm. You might hastily choose to abandon tenuous roommate situations and come live with me, because my home decor is quite unique... [dreamer that I am]

But seriously, dear Topaz, I hope all is well and your unusual absence from these pages is merely a result of a busy social schedule.

er um... "Shy and reserved?!?" I'm not so sure about that part...

In the temple of the soul, the boistrous celebrations on the portico often bear a marked difference from the sacraments observed in the inner sanctum.

Muse has taken a four day hiatus before as well, although this is merely the second one in a year and a half that this has happened.


Thanks. I wouldn't have bothered with this thing -- looks too much like astrology, the descriptions are all too general -- except that your example gave me the idea to do the cross-outs and editing too.

Yep. Generalizations that get your mind over reacting when in reality you are a bit more unique of an individual then the definitions predict. It's brain washing! ;)

Decisive. [What's that? Maybe. Gee, on second thought, maybe not.]

I love that. ;)

I have found that the terms "decisive" and "indecisive" tend to be very misleading. Meyers-Briggs theory breaks people into two groups, as you know, "perceivers" (like us) and "judgers."

The perceivers are always looking for more data, they always want to do more information gathering and are never certain that they have heard all the pros and cons before making a decision. They worry about making the wrong decision up to the point where the decision must be made. This makes them look indecisive. After a decision is made though, perceivers want to go data gathering for the next decision, and they don't want to revisit and re-think a decision they have already made if there is no possibility of reversing it.

Judgers, on the other hand are the ones I find weird. Judgers seem to quickly grab up the first set of facts about what they are trying to decide and then, bam, the decision is done, and then is when it occurs to them to question and fret about whether or not they have made the right decision. To me, questioning after the fact seems like wasted time.

This is why the P-J difference is such a problem for couples. My ex and I had these sorts of problems -- I'm a "P" she's a "J." To her, I always got in the way when she wanted to decide something, throwing more (useless, to her) variables and data into the equation and putting off the decision. To me, she seemed abrupt and arbitrary. Conversely, after a decision was made, I was cutting her off and didn't like it when she'd want to obsess over something that I considered "a done deal." If you make a mistake, you can clean up the mess, but you can't un-fry the egg. Sometimes that made our efforts at communication really strange and problematic. We had a tendency to "work around each other" instead of with each other. P's and J's can be happy with each other, I've seen it with other couples and I love(d) my ex dearly, but it's something of which to be very careful and conscious when figuring out and deciding if someone is right for you. To me, the term "decisive" seems such an inadequate description, but I generally defer to the "J" consensus that they are the decisive ones and us "P's" are the ones who can't make up our minds.


I prefer to view it as such: I am quite decisive but I like to think about it a lot and am always open to changing my mind based on more/new data. I like to weigh every side of a situation but I always constantly question everything so the opinion could change (and often does) based on new information.

In other words, you're a woman, and, as such, reserve the right to change you mind at any given time and for any reason whatsoever...

(8^O

Heh. Bastard. ;)

I prefer open-minded.

It's a "P" thang Footle, yall wouldn't understand...

Oooh, SNAP!

Re: P stands for 'Pansy'

I judge that to be a worthless comment. So there!

THHHHHBBBBBBBBTTTTTTTT!

Aww, don't be so hard on yourself!

Everyone is entitled to his opinion, Footle, even you.

Re: Aww, don't be so hard on yourself!

You Percievers are all the same! Get with the program! Make a decision!

SEPTEMBER:
Suave and compromising. Careful, cautious and organized. Likes to point out people's mistakes. Likes to criticize. Stubborn. Quiet but able to talk well. Calm and cool Geez, just read my posts about the Vikings and the moron at the bar, and this notion is refuted. Kind and sympathetic. Concerned and detailed. Loyal but not always honest. Does work well. Very confident. Sensitive.Thinking generous. Good memory Can't remember names to save my life; would forget my own if people weren't reminding me of it daily. Clever and knowledgeable. Loves to look for information. Must control oneself when criticizing. Able to motivate oneself Ask my poor neglected guitar about this one. Understanding. Fun to be around. Secretive. Loves sports, leisure and traveling. Hardly shows emotions Ask anyone who's seen me watch a Vikings game. Tends to bottle up feelings. Very choosy, especially in relationships Deadly accurate here, which is why I'm single. Systematic.

Thinks far with vision. - Nope. I'm a fly-by-the-seat-of-the-trousers kind of person.

Easily influenced by kindness. - I don't know about easily, but yes, kind acts go a long way with me.

Polite and soft-spoken. - Ha!

Having lots of ideas. - I'm a brainstorm machine.

Sensitive. - Insensitive, is more like it.

Active mind. - It never stops. It's always going a million miles per hour, except when I first wake up, of course.

Hesitating, tends to delay. - This really depends on a lot of factors. I'm extremely punctual--hate being late for anything--but I'm dreadfully slow at answering email.

Choosy and always wants the best. - Not particularly. I'm pretty easy to please.

Temperamental. - Very. Just ask f00.

Funny and humorous. - I frequently incite people to laughter, and more than half the time, it isn't even intentional.

Loves to joke. - Yup. But I can't tell jokes very well. I always fuck up the punchline, which often is funnier than the joke itself ever could be.

Good debating skills. - Written, yes. Oral, not so much.

Talkative. - Mostly. Occasionally, I clam up, but mostly I yammer.

Daydreamer. - And nightdreamer, too.

Friendly. - I try, but apparently some people think I'm unapproachable, so maybe I'm not as friendly as I think I am.

Knows how to make friends. - I'm awful at making friends. I tend to scare people off.

Abiding. - Not of fools.

Able to show character. - There's no choice in the matter.

Easily hurt. - I'm insensitive, remember? And I don't bruise easily, either.

Prone to getting colds. - When I get a cold, it's the Energizer virus.

Loves to dress up. - Why do you think I'm a belly dancer? Heh....

Easily bored. - I'm rarely bored, but then again, I keep doing different things all the time, so I'm not doing any one thing long enough to get bored with it.

Fussy. - Well, I do get fussy with food, sometimes.

Seldom shows emotions. - I'm pretty demonstrative, although I'm not the teary sort at all.

Takes time to recover when hurt. - Not very much. The time I got a serious contusions, a black eye, and a cracked rib in sparring, I was right back in kung fu two days later.

Brand conscious. - I avoid no-name food (it generally tastes like shit), but other than that, I couldn't give a hill of beans whether or not Tommy Hilfiger was peripherally involved with the manufacture of my clothing.

Executive. - What the hell does this mean?

Stubborn. - Very. VERY!

... and you know I love these things so I hope you don't mind this little trip down memory lane I am taking you on in your journal. ;)

JUNE:
Thinks far with vision. - Yes. Unfortunately, the vision is usually in 20 different directions. Is it any wonder I don't sleep well?

Easily influenced by kindness. - Oh yes

Polite and soft-spoken. - Usually polite. Manners are free. Soft-spoken... um... well... no.

Having lots of ideas. - Really in tandem with that vision thing.

Sensitive. - Only in certain places

Active mind. - Herbie the hamster

Hesitating, tends to delay. - It comes from being a P and thinking - often overthinking everything.

Choosy and always wants the best. - Walks hand-in-hand with hesitating

Temperamental. - "Your tempermental moody side, the one you always try to hide... from me". Well, yes I am at times, usually only if provoked or feeling neglected.

Funny and humorous. - Knock knock. (Who's there?) Orange. (Orange who?) Orange you glad you didn't say banana? *slaps knee*

Loves to joke. - Knock knock. Oh, never mind.

Good debating skills. - Oh yes. Have often been told I should have been a lawyer.

Talkative. - Oh yes. At times. The ex-husband used to say "You have a lot of words today"

Daydreamer. - Cheer up sleepy Jean, yes I am.

Friendly. - No. I hate everyone.

Knows how to make friends. - Yes. Buy them stuff.

Abiding. - *Chuckles to self* Well. Yes I am.

Able to show character. - I like to think so.

Easily hurt. - By my own fault, I'm afraid.

Prone to getting colds. - Yes. Now less than before.

Loves to dress up. - Though I seldom do these days, I do enjoy it. It's nice to look in the mirror and like what you see.

Easily bored. - Yes.

Fussy. - Not to a fault, but I like things the way I like them. Not to a point of OCD, but enough to have what I want, when I want it, or turn on tempermental.

Seldom shows emotions.

Takes time to recover when hurt. - Time is so broad. How is that really measured? Sometimes it takes me an hour, sometimes a year.

Brand conscious. - Maybe when I was younger

Executive. - Most of my jobs in business have come with a certain level of responsibility, in the executive / managerial sense.

Stubborn. - This is iffy. I used to be a lot more than I am now. Stubborn reminds me of locking heads. I prefer not to argue.


I know you are a P. Yes, it is that obvious. Heh.

I don't mind trips down memory lane. I frequently do that to other LJ'ers whose entries I have back-read.


Talkative: Yes, me too. I find talkative women interesting, if they're smart or witty as well. I should think that this trait serves you well in your line of work.


Friendly: I find my credibility stretched to consider the idea that you hate everyone. *snerk*


Easily bored: Really? Heh, I'm hardly ever bored.


Re: I know you are a P. Yes, it is that obvious. Heh.

Just cuz you hate everybody doesn't mean you can't be friendly.

I'm kinda quirky that way. :D
