> I very much enjoyed "Revelations of the Sole." You have talent as a writer, the metaphor of college majors = shoes is good.

Thanks. *basks in the admiration* You made my w3 very happy.

> (I haven't felt healthy for awhile.)

I only occasionally get glimpses of healthy. During those times, I don't have any cares in the world, everything's going smoothly, and I don't have to worry about anything. I guess the trick is to be healthy when things _aren't_ going well.

Riso says that at our best, fours are "profoundly creative, expressing the personal and the universal, possibly in a work of art." I feel that way when I write. I plan to become a writer or a journalist when I'm out of college.

> OK enough about me -- I do not think you are a 3/4, they could force themselves to do something for the desired result (recognition).

I could never force myself to be something I'm not for very long. And when I try, it's painfully obvious to everyone that I'm faking it.

> Whereas a 4/3 will eventually be like, "Hey, this is not what I am about. All the recognition in the world can't make up for this not fitting me."

*nods* That's me all right.
