Dear Pangu, you might work for some people but you just wasted several hours of my life and I hate you. I would like to thank the Japanese, and I would like to recommend that you skip Pangu if it’s not working for you. Pangu No Werk 4 u!?
I tried everything that everyone else tried. Including some awful spammy proxy installed onto my machine. Nothing worked.

Not a single person had them in the great white north of Saskatchewan.
The Five with a Four-Wing: “The Iconoclast”
The traits of the Five and those of the Four reinforce each other in many ways. Both Five and Four are withdrawn types: they turn to the inner world of their imagination to defend their egos and to reinforce their sense of self. They both feel that something essential in themselves must be found before they can live their lives completely. Fives lack the confidence to act, and Fours lack a strong, stable sense of identity. Thus, Fives with a Four-wing have difficulty connecting with others and staying grounded. People of this subtype are more emotional and introverted than Fives with a Six-wing, althrough paradoxically, they tend to be more sociable than the other subtype. As a result of their Four component, they are also more interested in the personal and intrapsychic. The two types also have some significant differences in their approach. Fives are cerebral, holding experience at arm’s length, while Fours internalize everything to intensify their feelings. Despite these differences–or because of them–these two personality types make one of the richest subtypes, combining possibilities for outstanding artistic as well as intellectual achievement.
Notewothy examples of this subtype include Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenburg, Friedrich Nietzsche, Georgia O’Keeffe, John Cage, John Lennon, k. d. lang, Laurie Anderson, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Buster Keaton, Gary Larson, Stephen King, Tim Burton, Clive Barker, Franz Kafka, Umberto Eco, Jean-Paul Sartre, Oriana Fallaci, Glenn Gould, Peter Serkin, Hannah Arendt, Kurt Cobain, and Vincent van Gogh.
In healthy people of this subtype, we find the union of intuition and knowledge, sensitivity and insight, aesthetic appreciation and intellectual endowments. Fives with a Four-wing are likely to be involved in the arts as writers, directors, designers, musicians, composers, choreographers, and so forth. The subtype has been somewhat overlooked in many descriptions of Fives because they do not fit the stereotype of the academic/scientific Five (the Five with a Six-wing). This subtype is more synthetic in its thinking, pulling things together and seeking out new ways of looking at things, Also, Fives with a Four-wing tend to utilize their imaginations more than the analytic, systematic parts of the mind which are more the domain of the other subtype. If they are involved in science, Fives with a Four-wing are drawn to those areas in which there is less emphasis on experimentation and data collection than on intuition and comprehensive vision. This subtype is particularly aware of–and on the lookout for–the beauty in a mathematical formula, for example. For this subtype, beauty is one of the indications of truth, because the order which beauty represents is a confirmation of the objective rightness of an idea. One of the foremost strengths of healthy Fives with a Four-wing lies precisely in their intuition, since intuition helps them uncover areas of knowledge where their conscious thoughts have not yet ventured. The Four-wing adds a desire to find a unique, personal vision to the curiosity and perceptiveness of the Five, and the result is a propensity to “tinker” with familiar forms until they become something almost unrecognizable. In talented Fives with a Four-wing this can lead to startling innovations in their chosen fields of endeavor.
In Average Fives with a Four-wing, the Four-wing adds emotional depth, but causes difficulties in sustaining efforts and in working with others. Fives with a Four-wing are more independent than Fives with a Six-wing and resist having structures and deadlines imposed on them. There can be an off-putting detachment from the environment, both because they are involved in their thoughts and because they are introverted and emotionally self-absorbed. Analytic powers may be used to keep people at arm’s length rather than to understand them more deeply. Emotionally delicate, people of this subtype can be moody and hypersensitive to criticism, particularly regarding the value of their work or ideas, since this impinges directly upon self-esteem. Both component types tend to withdraw from people and be reclusive. They can be highly creative and imaginative, envisioning alternate realities in great detail, but can get lost in their own cerebral landscapes. The Four-wing gives a propensity to fantasizing, but with the Five with the Four-wing, the subject matter tends toward the surreal and fantastic rather than the romantic. Individuals of this subtype can become highly impractical, spending most of their time reading, playing intellectual games, or specializing in trivia. There is often an attraction to dark, forbidden subject matter or to any way of self-expression which would disturb or upset others. Some Fives with a Four-wing become fascinated with the macabre and the horrific. As they become more impractical and fearful about their possibilities in life, one typical solution is to find emotional solace in various forms of self-indulgence–in alcohol, drugs, or sexual escapades.
Unhealthy persons of this subtype may fall prey to debilitating depressions yet be disturbed by aggressive impulses. Envy of others mixes with contempt for them; the desire to isolate the self from the world mixes with regret that it must be so. Intellectual conflicts make their emotional lives seem hopeless, while their emotional conflicts make intellectual work difficult to sustain. Moreover, if this subtype becomes neurotic, it is one of the most alienated of all of the personality types: profoundly hopeless, nihilistic, self-inhibiting, isolated from others, and full of self-hatred. Unhealthy Fives with a Four-wing retreat into a very bleak, minimal existence, attempting to cut off from all needs. The self-rejection and dispair of the Four combines with the cynical nihilism of the Five to create a worldview that is relentlessly negative and terrifying. Social isolation, addiction, and chronic depression are common. Suicide is a real possibility.
Myself, California Mist
Do I look like a problem solver? What does an INTP female look like? yada yada. It’s me.
Overview of 5w6: The Problem Solver
This subtype is the one that has been most often associated with Fives – the intellectual who is interested in science, technology, acquiring facts and details. Fives with a Six-wing are the “analysts” and “catalogers” of their environments; they are problem solvers and excel at dissecting the components of a problem or thing to discover how it works. The traits of the Five and those of the Six-wing combine to produce one of the most “difficult” of the personality types to contact intimately or to sustain a relationship with. Both components, the Five and the Six, are in the Thinking Triad, and Fives with a Six-wing are perhaps the most intellectual of all the subtypes. They also tend to be more disengaged from their feelings than Fives with a Four-wing. Persons of this subtype have problems trusting others, both because they are essentially Fives and because the Six-wing reinforces anxiety, making any kind of risk-taking in relationships difficult. However the comping mechanisms of the Five and Six are somewhat at odds, creating an inner tension between the two components. Fives find security by withdrawing from others while Sixes find security by working cooperatively with others. Hence, their interpersonal relations are erratic and in general are not an important part of their lives. Noteworthy examples of this subtype include Bill gates, Stephen Hawking, Sigmund Freud, Simone Weil, Jacob Bronowski, Charles Darwin, Edward O. Wilson, Karl Marx, James Watson, Ursula K. LeGuin, Alfred Hitchcock, Doris Lessing, Cynthia Ozick, Bobby Fischer, B. F. Skinner, Isaac Asimov, Howard Hughes, Ezra Pound, and Theodore Kaczynski.
Healthy people of this subtype are more extroverted and focused on the external world than Fives with aFour-wing. They are not particularly introspective, preferring to observe and understand the world around them. Healthy Fives with a Six-wing observe the world with extraordinary clarity, combining the Five’s drive for mastery with the Six’s quest for certainty. The result is a gift for drawing meaningful conclusions from disparate facts, and an ability to make predictions based on those conclusions. They are often drawn to technical subjects, engineering, science, and philosophy, as well as inventing and repair work. The Six-wing gives this subtype a greater ability to cooperate with others and to bring a disciplined, persistent approach to their endeavors. There is more sufficient talent, Fives with a Six-wing can combine their innovation withbusiness savvy, sometimes with very lucrative results. Their attention is more often directed at objects than at people although they identify strongly with key people in their lives. They may feel things deeply, but are extremely restrained in their emotional expression. In them we find an intellectual playfulness, a good sense of humor, as well as other attractive, loveable qualities. If others have been tested and permitted to come closer, they discover that people of this subtype have a deep capacity for friendship and commitment. There is also an endearing element in their desire to be accepted by others, and even if they are sometimes socially clumsy, others cannot help but be touched by their eagerness to reach out to people.
However, average persons of this subtype generally have problems with relationships. The Six-wing provides good organizational abilities and and endearing personal quality, but also adds to the Fives’ anxiety and fearfulness. They don not see to know what to do with their feelings, much less how to express them directly. Hence we find an insensitivity to their own feelings and emotional needs, as well as to the feelings and emotional needs of others. They have little awareness about how they communicate themselves to others. (They are the classic intellectual nerd, the socially inept oddball.) Average Fives with a Six-wing can become extremely preoccupied, theoretical, and absent-minded. They are totally wrapped up with intellectual pursuits and live completely in their minds, immersing themselves in their work to the exclusion of everything else. When interpersonal conflicts arise, average Fives with a Six-wing avoid resolving problems by burying themselves even more deeply in their intellectual work, and by employing passive-aggressive techniques, putting off people and problems rather than dealing with them directly. They can be rebellious and argumentative for no apparent reason, although something may have touched off unconscious emotional associations. Fives with a Six-wing tend to cling more tenaciously to their views and theories (reductionism) and to antagonize people who disagree with them, whereas Fives with a Four-wing tend to reject all meaning (nihilism) and to disturb the certainty of people who seem insecure.
Unhealthy people of this subtype tend to be suspicious of people and to have counterphobic, contentious, and volatile reactions to others. They are extremely fearful of intimacy of any sort and can be highly unstable, with paranoid tendencies. Unconsciously seeking rescue, they also fearfully reject and antagonize their supporters. The isolation and mental distortion we see in unhealthy Fives are reinforced by the Six-wing’s paranoia, inferiority, feelings and conviction of being persecuted. Neurotic Fives with a Six-wing ultimately become extremely phobic, projecting dangers everywhere while retreating from all social interaction. They may lash out at imagined enemies, and sometimes with lethal results. Psychotic breaks and madness are possible.
Its not easy being a gifted individual or a archetype that is considered stereo-typically male. There are many advantages to being a female with a more stereo-typically masculine mind, but there are also a lot of downfalls. The gifted + gifted female with a Anima archetype is a double wammy. I would consider gifted Anima types to be INTJ, INTP, ENTJ, ENTP, ENFP etc. It is hard enough to be gifted in today’s society.
It seems today that giftedness is repeatedly written off as a mental disorder. The diagnostic criteria for many mental issues, aspergers, adhd/add, nvld and bi polar disorder (to name a few) could easily overlap with signs of giftedness, be it Hoagie’s, Dabrowskis or any other number of psychologists and individuals who have recognized giftedness.
I would say the hardest part about giftedness is the alienation from your social group and society. The more advanced you become in your thinking and perspective, as well as your thinking the more you are pushed away from and ostracized by the group which cherishes sameness and togetherness. Many topics which are vital to explore if we wish to improve our world are considered taboo.
Telling the truth on your perspective or thoughts could be morally important to the individual and at the same time a direct shot in the foot. This sort of thing is considered social retardation. That is, the ability to not tell when it is proper to lie. This is actually in the diagnostic criteria for NVLD or Non-Verbal Learning Disability.
Too quickly are we writing off the unique thinkers and individuals as mentally ill while they are still children, and I dread to think of all the innovation and progression of our species we are missing out on due to this fact.
I’m an intp, and although I feel all this is only a framework, the description of the Myers-Briggs personality type INTP fits me very well. I’m a female and yes it is a little bit of a quirky personality for a girl!
My ennagram is a 5W6.

What is your personality type? Do you feel it fits you well? I’m under the school of thought that the only way you can really figure out your personality type is To find out your underlying functions.
For or me that’s

My best friends are all INTJ’s. I prefer the company of most NTs and some NFs and ISFJs
Black friday is here and of course many of you save half the year for the legendary Black Friday event of absolute madness and people at each others throats trying to snag the newest game topped with a Furby.
What have you bought this year on black friday. I already have a pretty decent receiver but I’m maxed on HDMI and wanted sound throughout the house. The price on this was only $30 less than the refurbished version of the same receiver but it’s still a great deal.
It plays FLAC, wireless music straight from your iPhone using Airplay and it’s got some crazy feature for simulated surround sound (I’m thinking I’m going to prefer the real thing).
I also stocked up majorly on Monster High and Ever After High Dolls, even a few Bratzillas (Bratz rip off of Monster High, which ripped off Bratz which ripped off Ball Jointed Dolls (BJDs or Dollfies).
I’m tempted to go wild and get this Monster High Gothic Doll house but there is no way that I would find somewhere to put this thing. Especially not where the million pieces would get batted around and scattered by all of the cats to create the mess of the century.
Things are going great with my fiancé, YES I AM ENGAGED!!! And completely in love with My S/O the ever so sexy Defcon602 who just came out with an amazing new electro music mix. Electro at it’s finest, check it out.
To stay on the pink hair theme, this is my fiancé with Pink Fetish in his hair by Splat (It bled TERRIBLY and GOT EVERYWHERE do NOT recommend unless you feel like bathing in vaseline!) with Atomic Pink by Special FX on top when it was faded a bit!
What is California doing right now updating her blog at 6:20 in the morning? Having no schedule and living her life free and she feels she should. I heard Valeria Lukyanova say that she prefers to live life in a free way without a human schedule, the human barbie has a similar philosophy to life as I do living on a erratic night owl schedule. I’ve always had issue sleeping at night, I think it is genetic. What kind of schedule would you be on if you didn’t have a 9-5 job?
I would really like to work on my self control and attain a polyphasic schedule. Sleeping is a complete waste of time and I am convinced sleeping 8 hours a night makes a person sick a tired! I love the lucid dreams and rested feeling I get when I barely sleep.
How to dye your hair extensions bright colors rainbow pink blue and purple unicorn hair.
Hair Color Dye used (On Platinum #60 hair bleached blonde):
Special FX : Atomic Pink
Splat Ocean Ombre Kit: Turquoise Reef & Blue Crush
Punky Color: Turquoise
Here are my hair extensions setting and getting ready to rinse and then dry! I find it’s a great way to spend the hour bleaching your roots to prepare your tape in hair extensions and wait for both your hair and your extensions to dry! Don’t forget to condition your extensions but don’t condition the roots of your hair before putting in tape in extensions!!! Your hair extensions will slide out of your hair and probably pull on it really bad. Hair extensions that hurt and cause bodily pain are the worst.
I really adore this blonde beauty’s hair extensions they look absolutely flawless. What do you think? Hair extensions can be heavy and uncomfortable but I think they are worth it to achieve the overall look. Unless you are born a blonde (and if you are chances are your hair is thin!) having hair this long naturally is impossible due to bleach breakage.
Here is a tutorial on how to dye your brown or black really dark hair a super light platinum barbie blonde color!
Special FX : Atomic Pink mixed with LOTS of heavy conditioner for damaged bleached hair (1/4 tsp Atomic Pink Dye to 1/4 cup conditioner.)
Special FX : Two of their purple colors, do not recall the names (diluted 1/4 tsp Purple dye to 1/4 cup conditioner)
Punky Color: Turquoise (Also diluted 1/4-1/2 tsp Punky Color Turquoise to 1/4 cup Heavy Conditioner for Bleached and Damaged Hair, use a cheap conditioner but very restoring one.)
I often dye my hair crazy colors right before dying my roots and then do a soap cap to bleach the crazy colors out of my hair so I can go blonde again when my roots are dyed.
How to do a soapcap when you are already bleaching your roots.
This can be done to remove brightly colored hair dye (pink, red, blue, purple etc from your blonde hair and return it to it’s platinum color) or to take brassy ugly orange and yellow undertones out of your hair or simply refresh your blonde look.
After your roots are 90% bleached (for refreshing blonde hair or removing pastel colors) (check often) or 60% bleached to remove intense colors like blue, red, or neon pink… go to a sink with a mirror.
Cover your shoulders with a towel.
Wearing gloves, wet your hair with warm (not hot) water just a little bit at a time.Be careful not to get the bleach on your hair or skin (I just got a bleach burn on my tattoo and it really hurt!!!! Splat brand bleach works very well but unfortunately is incredibly runny and gets everywhere, both on you and everything you own… have towels ready!)
Run your fingers through your hair and “pull” the bleach from your roots through your hair. You can also use this opportunity to touch up any areas that are still dark you may have missed. Don’t forget to have someone check the back of your head or look at your hair in a mirror!
Once the roots are saturated through, put the remaining bleach from your bottle or bowl in your hand a little at a time and run through your hair. Running the bleach through your hair if it isn’t dispersing evenly you may need to wet your hair a little more.
In the shower or over the sink; Use a cheap cleansing and stripping shampoo, or one that is very drying that is used to remove oils and debris from hair. Using a crappy cheap stripping shampoo ensures you remove the most color from your hair. Using a shampoo that moisturizes will just ruin your hairs open follicles by filling them with moisturizer instead of having the dye come out of the hair into the shampoo, you are having the conditioner getting stuck in your hair, locking in the color. You can buy this kind of Shampoo at the dollar store or on Amazon!It’s best to do this over the sink or leaving your body out of the shower. The bleach will drip onto your skin if you let the water run over your skin and it could be unhealthy or damaging.Massage the shampoo into your hair well (but not your scalp).
Put a plastic bag or shower cap on your head (not the colored kind the bleach will strip the color off your shower cap and make a huge mess!!!) Saran wrap will work as well. Alternatively you can sit in a hot shower to keep the pores open in your hair for the best bleached blonde results removing all that crazy color you just had in there. Goodbye BLUE BANGS, hello BLONDE BEAUTY!
Watch your hair carefully to see your color progress.If removing pastel / light colors or refreshing blonde hair and removing brassy undertones 90% root completion: If you hair is already very blonde or damaged I recommend you do not do this process for more than five minutes. Many people leave the soap cap in for 25-30 minutes, but after your roots have already been bleached you do not want them to be too light!) If removing bright intense colors or refreshing blonde hair and removing brassy undertones 60% root completion: If you hair is already very blonde or damaged I recommend you do not do this process for more than five minutes, but it is going to take more than five minutes for your bright intense colors to come out. It may need to be left in for an entire hour; if this is the case I recommend you do two 20-30 minute soap caps with 3 days to a week in between. In the meantime you will get to have a fun totally new color of bright and beautiful hair!
Shampoo again with a conditioning shampoo once all shampoo and dye is out of your hair then Condition with a VERY intense extreme conditioner and a hair mask unless you are installing hair extensions. Don’t forget to use Argan Oil throughout your hair for the best bleached blonde hair health!
You can only run the bleach through your hair with a soap cap so often without completely drying out your hair. A stripping cleansing shampoo can also help big time with this.
HOT TIP: When I bleach my hair I like to use cheap painting brushes that you can get at Michael’s Craft store and with a 50% off any one item coupon that you can find on retail me not or in their monthly fliers these cost basically nothing. You can also find them at the dollar store and in the craft and school supply isles of your local drug store beauty department.

On a closing note; a good friend of mine has passed away and I had a drink for him tonight with my friends. I will miss you a ton Bruce, you were always there for me and never ceased to make me feel special, I miss you. (‘_’) (/_;) (T_T) (;_;) (;_; (;_:) (;O;) (:_;) (ToT);; tt so sad ;; <3
And something really sad happened to me this week, it’s really private but I would like to ask for your prayers & positive thoughts and frequencies in my direction for health, happiness and success. If you leave your name in the comments I will send you the same!
Pool show with the pool closed? Only in Vegas… lame.
Die Antwoord are the most epic ZEF RAP Techno band in existence. They are the shit. They rocked it hard, but they rock harder on album. I love these foods. DJ Hi-Tek, did fuck everyone in the motherfucking ass.
The number 23. Occult symbolism everywhere. 23. 23. 23.
I love those korean sexy men’s hairstyles so I just couldn’t help myself when my baby said I could do whatever I wanted to his hair. We used the pink splat color from walgreens and I certainly recommend using something else. The color is fading quickly and is more red then pink after a few days.

My life has changed an incredible amount over the last few months. While I was preparing myself to be single for a long time and focus on personal and spiritual development, I ended up meeting someone who is absolutely perfect for me. This is the kind of thing that makes life worth living, when right out of no where true love finds you and shows you that more is possible than you could have ever fathomed on your own.
My dreams were grand, and somehow my new love has exceeded them in nearly every way. I am so grateful to be lucky enough to not only find someone who is kind and generous, considerate and loving, as well as sentimental, affectionate and caring. He is intelligent and cultured, well researched and artistic. He’s tall and handsome on top of it, and has a presence about him that you can’t help but notice in a room.
Goth and Geek is a nonstop adventure. We fell in love over the weekend at the equivalent of the Amazing Arizona Comic Convention, Amazing Vegas. We vacationed afterwards to recharge at the Wynn Hotel’s Encore and the rooms could not be cooler.
I’m feeling really grateful right now and I’m going to make it a personal goal to be more open and share more of my real life online, something that has always been pretty difficult for me as a private person.
Lots of love <3
