我其實做過這個 Carl Jung 的測驗不下十次,但次次都唔記得個答案。今次見 MD 做,我又做,並在這裡記住個結果,唔怕唔見左。

Link of the test:Jung Typology Test

結果,我係 INTP(Introverted、Intuitive、Thinking、Perceiving)(44%, 88%, 25%, 22%)。

這個網站這個網站叫這種 INTP 人做 Architect:

“Their major interest is in figuring out structure, build, configuration — the spatiality of things.”

“The INTP has no understanding or value for decisions made on the basis of personal subjectivity or feelings……”

“…… Many regard this attitude as arrogant…”

“The INTP is likely to be very shy when it comes to meeting new people……”

“They feel love and affection for those close to them which is almost childlike in its purity.”

“Generally laid-back and easy-going, willing to defer to their mates.”

“……may become unaware of their environment, and exhibit weakness in performing maintenance-type tasks, such as bill-paying and dressing appropriately.”

“INTPs do not like to lead or control people. They’re very tolerant and flexible in most situations, unless one of their firmly held beliefs has been violated or challenged, in which case they may take a very rigid stance. “

“They store huge amounts of information in their heads……They love new ideas, and become very excited over abstractions and theories……”

“INTPs value knowledge above all else……They seek patterns and logical explanations for anything that interests them…… or to prove or disprove existing theories…”

“They are often drawn to professions where they can be their own bosses……Work best alone, and value autonomy……Not particularly interested in the practical application of their work……”

“Many are found in the higher levels of academia ……”

INTP 的名人:

Socrates, Rene Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Charles Darwin, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, George Soros, William James, Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton, 還有 Carl Jung 自己。勁!全部都係勁諗野既人。唔好計班哲學家和科學家,你淨係睇下活士打球波都諗餐飽就知!雖然自覺高攀唔起,但反過來說卻慶幸從此有這藉口/理由去解釋我為何成日都唔郁:因為我在諗野!


在娜姐的番文地盤上看到這個源自 Center for Internet Addiction Recovery 的測驗,看看自己是否擁有「病態上網症」。我也很擔心自己的心理狀況,故立刻跟風做做:

Are you a net junkie?

If you answer ‘yes’ to five or more of these questions, you may have an internet addiction.

‧Do you feel preoccupied with the internet? (Think about your online activity or anticipate your next online session.)


‧Do you need increasing amounts of time on the net in order to achieve satisfaction?

Ans:No, I don’t.

‧Have you repeatedly made unsuccessful efforts to control, cut back or stop internet use?

Ans:No. I have not yet tried.

‧Do you feel restless, moody, depressed, or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop internet use?

Ans:No. I am not attempting to cut down my internet use.

‧Do you stay online longer than originally intended?

No. I really intended to stay that long… …

‧Have you jeopardised or risked the loss of a significant relationship, job, educational or career opportunity because of the internet?

Ans:No, of course not. My job, education and career are all depended on the Internet. And most of the time when I am surfing the net, my wife is sitting next to me, surfing her net anyway.

‧Have you lied to family members, a therapist or others to conceal the extent of your involvement with the internet?

:No. But why I need to do that?

‧Do you use it to escape from problems (eg, feelings of helplessness, guilt, anxiety, depression)?

Ans:No. But I don’t think it’ll help anyway.

Anyway,我到過那救命中心,見到有另一個更詳細的測驗。結果,我有 66 分。仍算是正常。只好認命,承認這個世界有更多比我需要幫助!

New Year Resolution 2008

在 2005 年初當我剛開始寫 Blog 時,我曾寫過一篇「2005 新年目標」。當時我有7件目標。目標是訂了,但之後卻從沒有回顧過有否達標。真的有點浪費。


(1) To apply for PhD.

但這也引申出 2008 年的首個目標(A),就是要在來年之內將我的研究工作推到下一個(也可算是「第一個」)階段。說得認真一點,即是要趕快「正式開工」了!

(2) To discuss if we would have kids or not.
由「考慮」到「決定」到現在 Jac Jac 都近兩歲了!這項可以說是「超額完成」了吧?

隨之而來的新目標(B)是要來年之內為 Jac Jac 做個好的教育規劃,包括揀學校和教他認第一個字(字母/數字就認得多,但字就未開始)等等。


(3) As a backup of (1), to explore job opportunity which also utilize
my strengths.
這一項,由 2005 到現在已做了兩次。現時的工作的確算能較發揮我的所長,而且也做得開心。只是待遇方面仍有很大的發展空間…… 不過本來要去提高我的「待遇」並不列在任何一項目標當中。換過角度看,長期提著的那些「想發達」/「唔駛做」等的遐想不算甚麼目標吧?


(4) To review and organize the record (good and bad) of my life so
far, and establish a system for easy update;
(5) To set up schedule to read books regularly, and to identify the
proper channel to constantly absorb new knowledge;
(6) To set up a system for easy capturing of information and thoughts
collected, and for easy recording and expression of feeling and
這三個正是我在 2004/2005 開始寫 Blog 的原因啊!如果要翻炒這幾個項目,那我今年另一個新目標(E)就是想要與上面第一個目標(A)結合去建構一個方便我研究的記事系統。Blog 可以是一個選擇,但我亦已開始試用了幾個 mind mapping 和 note taking 的軟件。希望能使(A)事半功倍。

另一個非常費時失事但又非做不可的相關事項,我現稱之為目標(F),就是要清理我 Outlook 內五千幾個 contacts 紀錄。可能有四份三的人可被鏟除,另外卻又有數百個新的紀錄(如 Facebook 找到的舊朋友或近年新搜集的名片)可加進去。真是一個大工程啊!

(7) To establish the pattern of regular Exercise.
唔好提…… 翻炒成目標(G)算啦!


(A) 全速開工讀書。
(B) Jac Jac 教育
(C) 細佬/妹?
(D) 開源節流
(E) Capture my mind more effectively
(F) Clean up my Outlook
(G) 養成做運動的習慣
(H) 多關心上一輩

想完了。感覺良好。就像上面相片中 Jac Jac 的手指般那麼有方向。但最重要的是「實行」啊!希望今次不要又要等三年才作檢討了!呀,今天在 Lifehack.org 上讀到一篇「14 Tips For Resolutions That Stick in the New Year」。可能幫到我,也幫到大家!



今日是所謂的 iDay,即是 iPhone 在美國上市之日。講到像二次大戰時的 D-Day咁大件事,因為蘋果是現今世上最有影響力的電子產品公司,他的一舉一動足以改寫整個業界的行規。

或者說,起碼蘋果大佬 Steve Jobs 希望如此。

何以見得?就看 Steve Jobs 將在美國時間今日中午(iPhone 上市前幾句鐘)要發表的「內部講話」的內容就知道他的野心。他說隨著 iPhone 這個蘋果有史以來最革命性的產品推出市場,今日將會是蘋果公司的轉捩點!

說成是「公司的轉捩點」這句話非常真確。畢竟蘋果公司由個人電腦、MP3 到現在的手機市場,越做越 mass;以前賣的是小眾鍾愛的 designer item,到現在賣給大眾的其實已是在賣一個 marketing hype。

大家可能說 design 和 marketing 不就是蘋果的強項嗎?對!(Marketing 有幾強?見 Steve Jobs 剛宣佈全部幾萬幾二萬名員工各送一部 iPhone 就知他的 marketing 手段有幾激!)不過唯一要擔心的是,大眾與小眾的產品另外的分別是對於 logistics,pricing 和 quality 較高的要求。這三項都不是蘋果的強項,尤以 quality 這項最令人擔心。想想同樣是 1%的 defect,1% 的 iPod 與 1% iPhone 所代表的銷售數字和顧客群的 diversification 的差距有多大!

不過最「攞命」的並不是產品的品質真的有問題,而是顧客因不懂或不喜歡而引發的退貨。這種退貨在我以前公司的術語為之「NFF」(no fault found),即是說顧客退貨的原因並不是因為部機真的唔 work。香港冇呢樣野,但美國好興。好多人盒都未拆晒就將自己新近買或甚至別人送的聖誕/生日禮物拿去退貨,原因可能是不喜歡、不懂用,或更貼切的:「因了解而分手」~用過兩日發現「都係唔適合自己」云云。

PictureiPhone 在這個 NFF 危機也不小。之前 iPod 的擁躉當然冇咁易變心,如果本著買一部「強勁功能電話」的心態的買家也沒問題。但其他普羅大眾若因為想買一部「靚仔電話」,或甚至只是慕蘋果、iPod的名來初次幫襯的人,會 NFF 退機就大有機會。何解?就看看近日大家在網上見到的各個 iPhone 產品測試報告,不難發現講來講去大家都是讚 iPhone 靚,但卻彈 iPhone 的接收和鍵盤。一個電話最基本,亦最重要的功能就是同電訊網絡接通。如果接收不行,那這部 iPhone 豈不只是一個貴一倍(但容量得四份一)的黑色 iPod?

聽落真的很大鑊!不知是蘋果的問題還是 AT&T的問題了!(但不又是一樣的問題吧?)

至於鍵盤,大家都說初時完全不習慣沒有 tactile feeling 的鍵盤(尤其同大家用慣的 Blackberry 和 Treo 比較)但一、兩個星期後就習慣了。不是說你習慣了它的缺點,而是它 adapt 了你的 typing pattern,從而改善了打字的準確度。真的這樣神奇?大家可按上圖或這裡看看蘋果自己的真人示範。看完後有點感動~如果真的能做到這樣美好的話!

如果真的做到,那如我上面所說,單是這智能鍵盤的設計就足以可「改寫整個業界的行規」,變成今後有鍵盤的產品的最起碼的規格。如果做不到,那蘋果就執定個貨倉去迎接 NFF 的 退貨了!

What Tarot Card are You?

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

重臨 McCafe

我第一次喝 McCafe,是在澳洲悉尼的麥記。九四、九五年左右吧。太久遠了,印象很模糊。近年再去,就是赤柱的麥記。記得飲了杯 Cappuccino,勁苦!之後就沒有再試。

今天午飯吃在麥記吃一號餐加 “the filling is Hot!” 的蘋果批。大刷一頓後,the feeling was great!但獨欠了「飯後一杯啡」。正在為這飯後啡盤算的當兒,留意到麥記的墊盤紙關於 McCafe 內不同種類咖啡的介紹。很 Pro!很 Starbucks!就憑這吸引、專業的墊盤紙使我對 McCafe 的印象改觀!

我如是者在 McCafe 的 counter 點了杯 espresso。$11的價錢,是比 Starbucks 和 Pacific Coffee 都便宜得多,但這個不是重點。重點是,這杯 espresso 香、非常香,而且很滑,espresso juice 可在舌尖中溜轉;但完全不苦澀!易入口但有個性!不熅不火!好一杯平易近人但有內涵的 espresso!而且竟是在麥記被我找到!

真的多得那新設計的墊盤紙。我以後不去 Starbucks了!

Profile Summary for Enneagram Type Four

Healthy Levels

Level 1 (At Their Best): Profoundly creative, expressing the personal and the universal, possibly in a work of art. Inspired, self-renewing and regenerating: able to transform all their experiences into something valuable: self-creative.

Level 2: Self-aware, introspective, on the “search for self,” aware of feelings and inner impulses. Sensitive and intuitive both to self and others: gentle, tactful, compassionate.

Level 3: Highly personal, individualistic, “true to self.” Self-revealing, emotionally honest, humane. Ironic view of self and life: can be serious and funny, vulnerable and emotionally strong.

Average Levels

Level 4: Take an artistic, romantic orientation to life, creating a beautiful, aesthetic environment to cultivate and prolong personal feelings. Heighten reality through fantasy, passionate feelings, and the imagination.

Level 5: To stay in touch with feelings, they interiorize everything, taking everything personally, but become self-absorbed and introverted, moody and hypersensitive, shy and self-conscious, unable to be spontaneous or to “get out of themselves.” Stay withdrawn to protect their self-image and to buy time to sort out feelings.

Level 6: Gradually think that they are different from others, and feel that they are exempt from living as everyone else does. They become melancholy dreamers, disdainful, decadent, and sensual, living in a fantasy world. Self-pity and envy of others leads to self-indulgence, and to becoming increasingly impractical, unproductive, effete, and precious.

Unhealthy Levels

Level 7: When dreams fail, become self-inhibiting and angry at self, depressed and alienated from self and others, blocked and emotionally paralyzed. Ashamed of self, fatigued and unable to function.

Level 8: Tormented by delusional self-contempt, self-reproaches, self-hatred, and morbid thoughts: everything is a source of torment. Blaming others, they drive away anyone who tries to help them.

Level 9: Despairing, feel hopeless and become self-destructive, possibly abusing alcohol or drugs to escape. In the extreme: emotional breakdown or suicide is likely. Generally corresponds to the Avoidant, Depressive, and Narcissistic personality disorders.

Key Motivations: Want to express themselves and their individuality, to create and surround themselves with beauty, to maintain certain moods and feelings, to withdraw to protect their self-image, to take care of emotional needs before attending to anything else, to attract a “rescuer.”
