Re: Daylen's Adventure

The leadership issue that you might share with me is recognizing that not everyone can be granted or appreciate the very long leash an ENTP needs. Come up with a few simple rules with a few simple consequences, wash/rinse/repeat on at least daily basis, and I am sure you will do fine.

Re: Daylen's Adventure

I agree that teaching kids math is one of the least objectionable jobs in terms of possible second order consequences. However, based on my own experience, I might advise that you likely ought to concern yourself more with plan to project authority, rather than plan to fake compassion.

Re: Jordan Peterson

@jacob: I think we are almost on the same page. An example of what I mean would be the series of thoughts I had when I encountered the phrase "Renaissance man" while reading ERE. I read the phrase with the perspective of somebody who prided herself on being self-employed/self-sufficient, self-descri...

Re: Bought a bike today, and....

Good deal! I need to shop for a new bike myself, and I have been debating how much I should budget for this purpose with the dial ranging from $0 to $150. I haven't owned a car for about 5 years now, and haven't even rented one for the last year or so, but my BF left his car in my temporary custody,...

Obvious need here for some better financial math put aside, is being unable to retire because you feel like you can't sell your house any different than being unable to retire because you aren't sure that even 3% is secure enough, or your NW isn't quite high enough to give you feeling of abundant we...

Re: Jordan Peterson

I think a lot of his philosophy or teachings are like the anecdote he offers concerning disciplining his own young children so that they were well-behaved in restaurants. He doesn't even think about the first place question of whether young children should be brought to restaurants at all. He admits...

Re: 7Wannabe5-Take 4

"The Golden Girls" and "Murder She Wrote" were my DD27's (INTJ) favorite shows when she was a very young child. You might think the golden girl I most resemble would be Blanche, but I've been informed that I am much more like Rose. I think you are right about the dark undertones, because my daughter...

Re: (non-fiction) book selection approach

My advice might not serve, because I only tipped over the line from reading majority literary fiction to majority non-fiction in my late 30s, so I prefer some balance of engaging memoir or amusing turn-of-phrase along with new-to-me information or ideas. So, for instance, Taleb is very much my cup o...

Re: Rich, broke, or dead?

I get that part. I just don't know the likelihood that I can rely on drawing at least $500 in S.S. from age 62 to age 97. If that is the case, then all I need is about $30,000 + (62-current age)*$7200= $94,800 now OR only $66,000 at my goal date of Harvest 2022. Of course, this is because the math f...

To which degree can a 21st century permaculture graduate from multiple courses outperform a medieval peasant who was willing to walk behind an ox all day? By quite a bit. For instance, here's a bit from ...
