Interesting, coz ten or so years ago when I did a real Briggs-Meyers with a "trained professional" (hur, hur), I was INTP. At least the pic that came with the blurb looks like someone I'd talk to in a bar. And I do like pleasure and beauty. But who doesn't? I do try to live in the moment more than I used to, and I'm continually fighting my desire to plan ahead. Don't worry, I don't take the result seriously.
Yesterday, on the train, I finished reading Master Han's Daughter
a collection of cyber-punk porn by fd_midori
I picked up cheap from the Hi Jinx
stall at Southern Exposure
. It's probably best described as Burning Chrome
I think several of you would enjoy reading this collection, but only those who like it nasty. You know who you are. Other's may find some stories disturbing, and even sickening. If you're at all squeamish, you should definitely avoid the simply titled Love
. Personally I think it's a nice depiction of a certain type of relationship taken to the extreme with the aid of technology, and can easily imagine people being in the mind-sets of both the primary characters, but to many that will just prove what a psychopath I am.
The book did suffer from some annoying editing mistakes, such as the use of the word "crafts" as the plural for "craft", when the craft in question were modes of transportation, so the EngLit geeks might find parts of it annoying.
It's interesting, I have no "problems" reading erotica on the train, I don't find it stimulating when reading it for the purpose of reading (as opposed to reading it for arousal). When reading for reading like that, the story becomes far more important, the description of sex acts less so. Most of the stories in the collection held up well to this sort of reading.
