The S and N Divide

The Myers-Briggs system divides people into a bunch of preferences, one of those being the S and N. I'll skip the grand detail and summarize S people as detail oriented and N people as idea oriented. Most people are S people.

I see the S and N divide hitting my daughter, Miss Dash. She's having more and more trouble playing with the S kids and opting to play with the N kids more. Last night, she was playing with a lifelong friend from church, and she tired of playing with that friend quite quickly. On the other hand, there are friends that she can play with forever and a day. Then again, i think that she's an S too, so maybe I'm totally wrong here.

Anyhow, there some sort of divide going on between her and many kids in general, and I think it's an S and N thing. Miss Dash is an idea driven machine.

At the moment, I'd classify her as an INFP. I've thought that for years and I still haven't changed her mind.

The Trope Team is Free

I'm running "The Trope Team" free on Amazon for a few days. It's job is to get me eyes.

Eight copies moved was enough to propel me to #81 on the Fiction>Action Adventure>Fantasy (Free) category. That tells me that is a very low traffic category. So, writing to that genre is either very good, as it is underserved, or very poor, as shoppers don't use that category. I'll go with option #2.

Eleven copies put it at #9000 in the free store and pushes it up to #60 in Action Adventure>Fantasy (Free).
