We all know that this is fun and hogwash and doesn't have a thing to do
with reality! I've taken this test twice now and I come out an absolute
E, which I revealed last year, and which I suppose surprises no one.
has not prevented me from being completely compulsive about the minutiae
of creating a conlang, and even though I have published some fiction,
have entertained the notion of putting Teonaht in some of my writing, I
never have. And I've never EVER roleplayed. Writers often test out as
instead of E... it's a profession that requires a great deal of solitary
work time. I became a professor of English, however, so I guess I don't
fit any mold. My E is expressed in my enthusiasm for a great many
pursuits instead of to one or two--which is often the hallmark of a
medievalist or philologist. Sigh. <G>

Horribly J, and I too know that Teonaht is nowhere near finished. What
Conlang can be "finished"????
I thought J measured one's judgmentality.
