Good post. Lots of things I have in-common with most of you. Lots that we have in-common with each other.

I donít always feel a need to express my opinion or point of view, but I am thankful for this site, for those times when I do. Received a lot of good advise about life and trapping from the folks here.


I trap for fun. I skin 'em for the money!

I bet if we all took a Meyers Briggs test there would be many similarities between us. I think this pursuit attracts a certain personality type. One that craves solitude, one that loves independence, one that would prefer to fly under the radar when possible. My wanderlust manifests itself in the pursuit of a challenge. Iíve grown crops, raised rabbits, raised chickens, studied water and soil science, the Bible, Criminal justice, Higher education administration, animal behavior, and trapping, read thousands of pages on Churchill and T. Roosevelt. Now Iím dabbling in learning Russian. For some reason I just always have to have a challenge to stay fulfilled. My wife canít figure out why I donít find fulfillment with people and relationships But thatís just not how Iím wired for whatever reason. Took her forever to not take it as a personal slight.

I held farmer classes on 5-year cycles with one of 5 topics each year in the class portion. I always did a short form Meyers-Briggs during the year we had employee-employer topics along with partnerships. They were always fun and a learning experience. I invited spouses, significant others and or other family members in the business. The old stereo types we always kidded about were there. Most male farm owners were introverted and the females were extroverted. The quit strong, big shy farm boy is found by the outgoing engaging girl. In the USA of the adults taking the Meyers-Briggs about 65-70% of population is extroverted while 30-35% are introverted. There are obvious degrees of each on the spectrum. Extroverts get energized by being involved and active. High levels of human interaction for introverts makes they tired.
Introverts that have highly social and engaging careers need a lot of quiet time to regenerate. Extroverts need interaction to regenerate. Male farmers, loggers, commercial fishermen etc. are many times strong introverts.
Extroverts also build security or identity by what others think, say or feel about them. Introverts do this internally. Some of the more unhappy persons I consulted with were introverts with highly social and people demanding jobs. Many times they were the ones with the long, winding driveways with their house hidden as they just needed to isolate to get recharged.
With the society and economy heading more and more into service related careers, we have more introverts that have adjustment issues with those jobs and unfortunately many times it lives with them all their lives.
COVID shutdown and isolation has also been an issue for the bulk of us as we engaging with people as a way to maintain energy and balance. Also texts and forums such as this allows for non verbal and no body language input and thus is not as effective with extroverts as introverts.

I have never thought about it. The guys on here that I havenít met donít know me so I donít worry about it. The fellas I have met are top of the line. The few who seem to be not so nice at times are the type that after most of us sit around a fire for a few hours probably would be good friends!
