    Greetings.

    I found my way here after link hopping from facebook to reddit to 16personalities to here. I didn't think there'd be an exclusive community of a class of the MBTI types.

    I suppose I should introduce myself, but being an INTP kind of gives away a lot it already, heh.
    Rationality and honesty are the two things I value the most, second only to peace and quiet.
    My love for science is rivaled only by my love for the Japanese language and culture.
    I am completely dependent on the Internet for almost everything.
    More often than not, I'm a dick to people and it makes me mad that I don't have it in me to be naturally nice to people. I have no doubt that FSM is disappointed in me.
    I like RPGs and MMOs, and absolutely despise FPSs and MOBAs.
    I want to play tabletop DnD but I've never had the opportunity to.
    I like to cook. And possibly bake... while baked on baked goods that I baked the previous time I baked while baked.

    That said, hi

    Hey, welcome aboard!

    I find that being rational and honest can itself lead people to consider you "being a dick"; that is, to be "nice" is sometimes at odds with being rational and honest, particularly when others are neither. Heh. Basically, I can relate to this problem.

    Fact is the opposite of tact. There is just no getting around that sometimes.

    OTOH, "being nice" to people is good practice for living in an overwhelmingly extroverted world. By choosing the right words, you can usually speak the truth without offending people. It's an acquired skill. Being a misanthrope can get you screwed.

    Anyway, welcome.
