Quite. The past few weeks have sparked much self-analysis in this regard. For instance, I now wonder if I am closer to the Myers-Briggs/Keirsey archtype of INTJ rather than INTP and indeed if have always been so but with ADD/depression/low self-esteem/schizodial or schizotypical tendancies always getting in the way (but for a brief window of clarity in my late teens).
