MBTI in Fiction: ENFPs see life as full of possibilities. They make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. They want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give appreciation and support. Spontaneous and flexible, ENFPs often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency. (x)

Hi there! Sorry for the late response, I’ve been on and off of Tumblr lately. It did take me some time to get really comfortable with my style: I started wearing more classic clothes in high schools, which did stand out since I was in super-casual Southern California. At first I felt self-conscious, but I realized that on the occasions where I did get attention for my fashion choices, it was generally positive. After all, classics are classic for a reason: you can never really go wrong! I actually got a lot of positive feedback from fellow J. Crew obsessed teachers haha.

My university happens to be in a city setting where it’s pretty normal to wear classic stuff like trench coats. However, as a science major I did often get comments from classmates (mostly male, go figure), who’d ask me why I was “so dressed up,” if I was wearing anything besides a T shirt and jeans or if I had red lipstick on or something. That was annoying at first, but I would just brush them off with something flippant like “I felt like it” or “I’m not dressed up, you’re dressed down.” After a while, they got the point and stopped.

Long story short, it can feel kind of weird to be the most put together person in the room, but take pride in it! Sometimes the second glances at your outfit are looks of admiration, not judgment :)

Anonymous said: Did you go by a Pottermore sorting or a self sorting?

Both, actually! I always thought of myself as Ravenclaw before any of the online quizzes were available. But every sorting quiz, including Pottermore, I’ve ever taken has confirmed it. (I did take a super comprehensive one that gave me a Ravenclaw/Gryffindor hat stall though.) Even the Harry Potter spells app, which sorts randomly—you just shake your phone—put me in Ravenclaw :)

aka “Elitism is my middle name”

I like how Moffat would say that Reinette - a female character that he wrote into the show - is obviously a perfect match for the Doctor based on her level of ‘civilization’ and education.

As opposed to oh say…Rose Tyler - a lower-class girl who never went to university - whom the Doctor actually fell in love with and did settle down with in another universe.

This quote just has it all, doesn’t it?

- The elitism

- The dig at Rose Tyler and RTD, by extension

- The elevation of ‘his’ character at the expense of existing ones.

- The implication that Madame de Pompadour - one of the most powerful women in the country - would of course drop everything she had worked for to go and ‘settle down’ with a man who is basically a homeless spacehobo.

People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

Hah, excellent Moffat-criticism here. He is so petty, and so unequipped to write insightful sci-fi.

Like, okay, let’s pretend for a second that by “educated and civilised” he means “has a lot of knowledge and social insight” (which is a valid thing to look for in a romantic partner) rather than, you know, “rich, fancy and subservient” (which is what Moffat expects people to look for in a romantic partner).

… I really don’t think that an 18th century aristocrat has more understanding of science and society than a 21st person without A levels but with a working television. And in any case, if the Doctor was really looking for people who are Intellectual Equals, he’d surely look in the future, when people understand time travel, and have wikipedia installed in their brains, or whatever. Or AIs! I can’t imagine anyone more educated and ‘civilised’ than AI people!

Just, one thing I really loved about RTD’s Who arcs - which Moffat clearly didn’t understand at all - was that EVERYTHING the companions knew was useful - Harry Potter trivia! Game-show quickness! Fast typing! - and that the, like, real-world hierarchy of skills and marketability was always shown as less important than courage and compassion.

WITHOUT A LEVELS BUT WITH A WORKING TELEVISION

YES THIS.

I’m imagining the real Madame de Pompadour and how very unimpressed she would be by Steven Moffat declaring his ~admiration for her, but

wow

did this man just admit that he think the position of Companion is actually the Doctor’s maîtresse-en-titre?  Jesus wept.

That is exactly what this man thinks, and what he writes also. He thinks women are wired to ‘cling’ and men are wired to want to escape them, and the only way a relationship can be agreeable to both parties is if the woman accepts that they can only spend time together when the dude initiates it.

… Suddenly I am kinda surprised that Sherlock and Irene didn’t set up a long-distance relationship where she spends her days in an orientalist parody of a villa, waiting for Sherlock and passing the time taking luxurious bubble-baths and emotionlessly spanking female nobility.

Oh my god this is some sick shit— and really, really, really highlights how much Moffat doesn’t understand the fundamental heart of the show he’s fucking running. If the Doctor was so hot for intelligent, well educated, civilized women why the fuck did he ever leave his home planet? Why has he only ever had one Gallifreyan companion after he left his granddaughter to go her own way? Romana was foisted on him by the time lord ellimist, he didn’t go picking her out of a catalogue. 

The Doctor runs around with soldiers and schoolkids and teachers and sailors and students and journalists and shop girls and alien refugees and orphans and robot dogs and barbarians and private detective penguins and renegade archaeologists. If he wanted a slice of properly civilized girlfriend he had the whole universe to go pick one out from, and he never did till Moffat wrote him launching himself smooch-first at the lady in the fancy dress and historically inaccurate boobies.

Goddamn I am so mad. 

Oh my god. OH my GOD. If you even like moffat, just read this. WHAT A FUCKING ASS> I AM SO MAD

If something is ‘old as fuck’ then it’s about 1.2 billion years old because that’s when life evolved sexual reproduction.

 

However, if something is “old as balls” it’s only about 65 million years old, when placental mammals began to evolve proper testicles.
