Self-identification

I was intrigued by how few people identified as "an introvert" on the previous poll. Looking down the list, it seems to me that the majority of people on my friends list are reasonably introverted - insofar as they get energy from time away fom people, and feel drained by prolonged periods around others, however it seems that they don't feel the same.

So, I'm intrigued how people come out on the Myers-Briggs personality types.

If you've never taken this before then take the test here (takes about five minutes) and report back...

Geekish recommendation

I cannot recommend highly enough the Sumvision Cyclone Micro.  It is a fantastic piece of technology.

You know all those DVD players that will also play video/music/photo files off of a USB stick? It's one of those, but without the DVD bit. Basically, it's a tiny box (fits easily in the palm of your hand) that you plug USB stick into - and then watch whatever is on it on your TV. It comes with both HDMI and Composite connections (so can be plugged into a SCART input easily with a connector), played every XVID and DivX file I threw at it, and was about two minutes work to set up.

And it's £25 on ebuyer at the moment.

If you're fed up of watching downloaded videos on your PC, and don't want to go through a lot of fuss to watch them on your TV then I highly recommend it - it's fantastic.

Thank you very much to poisonduk for recommending it to me in the first place.
