With any grace, the above photograph and caption – which I found on Facebook – will be the perfect summary of my life as I portray it on this blog. (Wikipedia’s article on the Japanese aesthetic philosophy itself is well worth reading.)

“PARODY MOTIVATIONAL POSTER”: GARFIELD AND COMPUTERS

Parody Motivational Poster: Garfield and Mr. Chainsaw

Parody Motivational Poster: Garfield and Mr. Chainsaw

2015-07-30 @ 07:43 CDT

Paws, Inc. has an ambivalent attitude, it seems, about its graphics. On the one hand, we have Garfield memes like this floating around the Internet, as this was found on Facebook before I put it into a poster. Presumably they were made and promoted by Paws, Inc. in the first place. On the other hand, the last time I put a Garfield graphic from the Internet into Photobucket, it got erased by Paws, Inc. as in violation of copyright. Guys, guys, what do you WANT?!

So this time, I won’t share this poster I made on Photobucket. But it’s too good not to share here. Enjoy!

“PARODY MOTIVATIONAL POSTERS” ON PERSONALITY TYPE: 2015-07-27

I found (either by myself or with the help of my INFJ lady friend) three very apt photos these past two days, and I thought they would make great “parody motivational posters”. The captions took no little thought. I like the artwork in the INFJ poster so much that I may write a story based on it…

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE ENFPS OR ENTPS, EVER

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

A kind of counterblast to all those “parody motivational / demotivational posters” out there which picture ENFPs as sensitive crybabies and/or flakes…

On Google Images, there are all kinds of posters showing INFJs as deep, complex, and sometimes very dangerous people. What does one find about ENFPs? Not nearly so many, and most of them picture us as flakes. (Some of those, I’ve actually contributed to the mix.)

Today, with the help of ENFP Qui-Gon Jinn from STAR WARS, I bring out the other side of ENFP-dom: the side that can bring logical discipline and emotional control to bear on our natural strengths in compassion and purity of heart. And I really do mean the caption here. Pushing an ENFP (or an ENTP) to the wall – if he has the physical or other capacity to act against you – is not a good idea.

One reason is that the ENFP/ENTP way of dealing with the here and the now (Extraverted…

The second poster above was made by someone else and was found on Google Images. The others were made by me today. The one on the ENFP preference (mine) takes its cue from an old friend and former Navy man (and probably an INFJ himself): how some ships, and some people – including me – go into a situation “fat, dumb and happy with all their running lights on.” (The spaceship photo is a wallpaper provided by an Italian site.) The microscope portrait is a commercial photo for a biological microscope. The cat on the railing of a balcony seems to be a famous photograph – too bad its author seems to be lost in cyberspace.

CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, ADULT FEAR

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

In hopes of helping people be a little more educated about an ongoing tragedy…

What a tragedy! Although the effects of childhood trauma and abuse are not strictly within the purview of this blog, this article, “Childhood Trauma Leads to Brains Wired For Fear” is something I want to save for my own reference – and to point out to others.

In my completely non-professional observation, exactly how that fear manifests itself in adulthood is mediated in part by personality type. An ENFP who has experienced such trauma will respond in notably different ways than, say, an INFJ will – for example, because the “cognitive process” at the bottom of the archetypal hierarchy, the place where so much of the trauma tends to be “stuffed”, differs from type to type. So even if an ENFP and an INFJ both experience PTSD (sorry for the alphabet soup!), they won’t experience it in quite the…

FIVE INDICATORS OF AN EVIL AND WICKED HEART (ASSOCIATION OF BIBLICAL COUNSELORS)

Sadly, this article has become far too pertinent to my life and has been so to the lives of several of my brethren in Christ. While I’m sure the ABC has positional problems of its own, what it says about the need for repentance and taking responsibility, among much else, really hits the mark.

Not wanting to evoke any particular person, living or dead, by my usual graphic header, I chose an image I found on Google Images using the search phrase “science fiction cities”. The original image is found here.

THE “SEFER HA-BERITOT” (BOOK OF THE COVENANTS) IN FOUR EDITIONS

John Wheeler (Johanan Rakkav):

Another project I’m glad to have finished…

I’ve spent a fair amount of time last week assembling and indexing four PDF files featuring the Letteris Edition of the Masoretic Text (Hebrew-KJV) and four editions of the New Testament. Three of the latter are Hebrew New Testament versions: those of Delitzsch, Margoliath, and Salkinson-Ginsburg. The fourth is the Westcott & Hort edition of the Greek New Testament.

Sefer ha-Beritot (Book of the Covenants) is what the Christian Bible is generally called these days in Hebrew.

The following links to my Dropbox folder will enable you to download the corresponding PDFs:

LETTERIS/DELITZSCH

LETTERIS/MARGOLIATH

LETTERIS/SALKINSON-GINSBURG

LETTERIS/WESTCOTT-HORT
