So… cool to know!
Documentaries like “Blackfish” have sparked worldwide debate about whether Orcas should be held in captivity and used for our entertainment. Laci looks at just how intelligent these animals are and what a life out of the ocean does to them.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.
MBTI is based on the work of Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist who studied personality archetypes, and founded analytical psychology. Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isobel Briggs Myers, expanded on Jung’s theory to identify a total of four pairs of opposing psychological elements. According to the theory, everyone has a preference for one of the characteristics within each pair, and we use that preferred approach most of the time.
The four psychological scales are as follows:
(E) Extroversion – (I) Introversion
(S) Sensing – (I) Intuition
(T) Thinking – (F) Feeling
(J) Judging – (P) Perceiving
Although one side of each scale is thought to be dominant for each of us, that doesn’t mean it’s the only way we can relate to the world. However, this is usually our preference and the style we use most naturally. So, if you’re a person who relies on feelings, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use objective data to make decisions. It simply means that you’ll probably use feelings to some degree.
If you are curious about your personality type, you can take the MBTI here.

Yesterday was a BIG day for Mars exploration — the first scoop of Mars soil analyzed by NASA’s Mars Science Lab in October is 2% water by weight. This is groundbreaking as this will be a valuable resource for future colonists and could have ramifications for the continuing search of microbial life on Mars. Find out more

October is right around the corner, so we we thought for this week’s Caturday we’d share this October 1895 poster of the magazine “The Black Cat,” which apparently cost five cents and was produced in Boston. The poster is currently in our Art And Architecture Collection (if you’re interested in what else they have, check out their blog). Happy Caturday!

Paul Andersen explains how chemical differs from physical change. In the laboratory macroscopic observations are used to infer changes at the particulate level. Evidence for chemical change include gas production, change in temperature, change in odor, change in color, and formation of a precipitate.

I don’t agree with everything here (and there’s a LOT to take in), but there can be no doubt that Chris Tolworthy has spent some time thinking about the FF.
