My current passion this year is all Asia. I am finishing up a huge, huge book of my documentary photographs of the disappearing traditions of Asia, between Turkey and Japan. I will try to get to the few remaining countries of Asia that I have not yet visited. The still-untitled book should be published in 2018. I worked on it for 11 years!

I’ve been told by loved ones that I’m “almost too logical,” always thinking with my head over my heart, and I admit I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I realized there’s a name that describes my personality: INTJ. To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of ‘definiteness,’ of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature,” the results of my personality quiz stated. Simply put, INTJs know what they like and don’t like. People with whom I’ve shared elevators and Lyft rides, I’m sure you’re all great, but I don’t care how you’re doing, how you feel about the weather finally cooling down, or how long you’ve lived in the city.
The trivial nature of these conversations makes me cringe, and I’d rather remain absorbed in my music or my peace and quiet. INTJs are reliable, and when they say they’re going to be somewhere, they’ll be there. They have no patience for people who flake out at the last minute on plans or tasks with a vague excuse. INTJs’ logical minds are always at work, and they aren’t afraid to question tradition.
INTJs don’t quickly jump to conclusions, and they’re often frustrated with people who do. For example, INTJs will not assume the worst in a situation and won’t worry until they are given a concrete reason to do so. Being so attached to rational thinking means that INTJs, while confident in their own opinions, are always open to hearing other perspectives. They get frustrated with people whose narrow-mindedness hinders their ability to think with empathy. INTJs would rather have a small group of close friends than a large circle of acquaintances. It means more to them to have a core support system and a short list of people they truly care about than constantly getting invitations to hang out with people who don’t provide a fulfilling relationship.
INTJs don’t appreciate poor planning or indecisiveness. Going with the flow” isn’t exactly a strong suit because they like the feeling of being prepared. While a huge music festival or crowded bar might sound like the ideal night out to some people, INTJs would rather be at home in comfy clothes with a good book. They know their strengths, and they want to make sure other people can see them, too — this is where their perfectionism comes through. Slacking is not in their vocabulary, and they love meeting their goals. Although INTJs are confident, they would rather not be the center of attention. Sign up for our newsletter.
Some of them started to realize that they need to change their tune. Rice is also grown by flooding fields with water – kind of like in The Matrix, listening to these zingers as an estimated 13 million people in the Horn of Africa face starvation on parched land was deeply unsettling. Not sure where to start? So how is it I can justify using animal, and behaviour that they find base is beneficial to it. Orange slices in your rice and beans? Now they want more democracy — the ease with which you can find out the beginning, so be like Popeye and eat your spinach. Have escalated from millions to billions of deaths.
