So There!

So There!

This snippet (I hesitate to call it an "article") does little to demonstrate the link between the MBTI type described and math. The sudden imposition of the bold "Math rules!" seems like a nonsequitur.

The instruction to browse the letters individually is confusing, since the letters aren't hyperlinked. The imposition of so much targeted advertising, particularly the placement of the Google ads sidebar cutting into the body of the paragraph, made it hard to find the actual content in all the clutter.

My MBTI type is INTJ. (The NT part is strong, whereas the I and J are weak, almost qualifying as X.) Although I know the Myers-Briggs test is used most often by employers, the people I know who are really into personality typing use it to understand the relationships in their lives--it helps them comprehend the perplexing behavior of their relatives, spouses, children and friends who are of different types.

The personal element is what makes them care about the MBTI. The inclusion of some info one what types work well, or badly, together would be interesting.

Barry's Response - Thanks Valerie. Math Rules was meant to be an example of things my type appreciates, from my life. And Stuff in the air is primarily a weather and environmental info website.

It's interesting to search for relationship info (involving different types) on the web.

It's quite a perplexing situation you've painted there, my dear friend, that...

Math Rules thing was meant as an example of what my type appreciates.

The "Math rules!" proclamation might seem out of the blue, but math, like life, is full of surprises! Our mathematical equations get a boost of excitement from that unexpected variable.

Trying to navigate those letters without hyperlinks is a bit like trying to navigate a labyrinth blindfolded. Life's like that sometimes, isn't it? Even without hyperlinks, we poke around to find our way through it.

One could argue that Google ads are the modern-day equivalent of life's distractions. Just like those unexpected personality traits in your INTJ friends and family. It's a real test of our focus.

Regarding MBTI, you're absolutely right about the personal element. It's like a mirror reflecting the beautiful chaos of human relationships. It's there to help us understand strange behavior. Whatever it is, whether it's math or understanding our loved ones, there's always more to learn. Life's interesting that way, isn't it? Life is interesting.

Thought Stuff in the air is mostly about weather and the environment, there's a lot of interesting relationship information on the web (involving various types).
