Let’s count, how many among these are my hobbies. Because I found quite plenty. =)

(via the internet. Too many sources, I don’t know which one is the creator, so I’d be happy if someone can point it out so I can credit the infographic properly)
I’ve been an INTJ all the way, since the first time I took the test back then in high school. At that time I had not even decided on a study major yet, and my decision to pursue a quite-pure science major was completely independent of the outcome of this test (and any other tests that I took in counseling class and those paid talent-and-interest tests that I have never taken). I was just reminded of my high school test result when I, for fun, retook this test sometime during my undergrad time.
My interests change, my view on things change, but strangely my Myers-Briggs test result has never changed. So I think the scientist blood (and mind) keeps running in me all the way, and even though I don’t do academic type work anymore, I would still be conducting my life with self confidence, pragmatism, decisiveness and models and systems. Or maybe I do not really change that much.. I just know what I want to do, or let’s put it as the INTJ-ness is revealing itself more and more in me.. HAHA.
I sometimes thought I am a bit of an F - interpreter of information (which makes me an author/INFJ) but maybe I am not helpful complex enough. And yes I am not an ENFP (which is rather too FAR from my personality) as my journalism/reporting style is not dramatic… enough. My view on life is not dramatic enough. I am not a drama queen enough. Good news, I guess? LOL.
.
By the way, if you know the other test on the 4 kinds of personality type (I cannot remember if it has a proper name), based on it I do not have the personality which (maybe) most people thought/claimed/insert such verb I have. I am >93-95% M, a part of P and even smaller part of C… and 0% S. I can safely strongly attributed the C to my get-things-done, work-to-get-what-you-want, planning and perfectionist attitude.. Those that are also shared by M people. And the M traits that I have are the subset of the traits of INTJ people (I am decisive.. remember?).
Afterall, since I am not a pure, hardcore M nor INTJ, there are some other traits or values that I hold which do not fall solely to any of the characteristics. I believe more on doing what is right and useful and thoughtful at the time being, and refuse to let a personality type defines me. My actions should be concluded into personality that psychologists may see, not vice versa (aka. what others with this personality type will do? Or what having this personality type dictates me to do? Or even worse, I’ll do this because this is my personality.)

I guess this is the motivation to… Write concisely.
I just don’t like taking a whole circle to explain something in round and round and round while the same message can just be conveyed, with the same impact, in one short sentence or phrase. And on the other hand, I also don’t like talking too much in one sentence if it can be splitted into several sentences. Ever heard about information overload?
Should tag this with academic writing. *insert emoticon here* HAHAHA.

Yayayay. Viva writers :)
I realized that I have not been writing so frequent lately (but better than the previous period which I could not even write anything at all!). I need to write more. It is something that keeps my brain working, also doubles up as a way to express myself. Also it keeps the stress away.
Just a random thought.. Is someone who writes a lot seen “less” (well, in EQ test during my secondary school time, seen as shy) than, say, someone who expresses him/herself through music or song or dance?

This post should have been typed down and posted a few weeks ago when the event was still fresh.. But I just had the mood to do so here and now while keeping my balance inside this moving bus =D

So I got an email from one of the church group’s mailing list. They attached the liturgy/rite of the service to be followed throughout this Lent period. The message that came with it mentioned that, if we have smartphone or tablets or other smart portable digital devices we can use them to read the softcopy during the service instead of reading off the printed ones provided in the church, as the latter are available in limited quantities. The bottom line is to encourage us to “save the environment”.

This comes from a congregation (the tech-savvy leaders/elders/deacons/Easter committee members?) which asks the attendees to switch off their digital devices prior to the service. This comes from the people who asks us to concentrate on the service, to resist the tempation to check and reply whoever calls/texts/Whatsapps/twitter mentions/chats with us during the service. This comes from those who asks us to dedicate the full hour to worshipping God. And yet, the encouragement to use the softcopy of the liturgy, in my opinion, is contradictory enough with all these actions that they have tried to become a habit.

Another way to tackle this issue is to put up power point slides which consist of the parts of the liturgy, or to the very least, the songs and the parts that are different than those in the ordinary weeks. My church in Indo and the Catholic church behind my house here in this little red dot use this method, and besides the lyrics and stuffs they also put in the music sheet or notes to the songs -at least for the first verse and chorus- in order to guide the people while singing, albeit in my opinion will only be useful to the musically literate ones. And even weddings also utilize this technology even though liturgy booklets are often given to the invitees (redundant much?).

One pastor in the church said to several people, me was present there, that temptation cannot be “masked” for you not to sin, but the evil must be beaten through Jesus Christ. So you should stare to your smart devices’ screens for the liturgy and pray to God to enable you to resist the urge to check the incoming messages?

Perhaps turning your mobile data off during service would be helpful to help you not to fall into (a majority of) the temptations.
