Good afternoon. It is I Gigi the parti poodle here to introduce my blog and present Chapter Thirteen of my story. This week the Maltese has been suffering from the heat. I feel sorry for him. He has been panting a lot at night and my novelist had to put a cool wet towel over him. He will be feeling much better soon because he will be going in for his spa appointment where he will be tortured for an hour or two and come out looking…adequate. I still have a sharp looking style from my last appointment and do not feel the heat. I am beautiful and extraordinary in every way. That is why the blog is called Gigi Catches Air instead of Tucker Faceplants on the Floor. Without further ado here is my story. Frui!
What I Found In The Trunk
Gigi the parti poodle
“Stop that banging!” Rusty yelled.
I knew we shouldn’t have done this!” Gary said as he turned the car around the corner and headed down Front Street. “This is bad! This is seriously bad!”
“It’s a felony, isn’t it?” Bennet asked.
“Yes, it’s a felony! Are you kidding me?!”
“Just drive back to Soap Lake and we’ll work it out.”
“Why did I listen to you guys? I must be out of my mind!”
There was a banging from the trunk again.
“Stop that banging!” Rusty yelled.
“I’m going to kick you in the nuts!” Rune shouted from the trunk her voice muffled.
“Good luck doing that from the trunk, sweetheart!”
“Don’t call me sweetheart, you prick!”
“Stop agitating her,” Gary snapped. “You’re making it worse.”
“Are you going to put up with that banging all the way back to Soap Lake?”
“She’ll stop if you shut up.”
“No, she won’t.”
“Yes, she will.”
“Dudes,” Bennet said. “Let’s chill. If we’re all worked up about this, we won’t be able to solve the issue at hand.”
“Bennet’s right,” Gary said. “I can’t believe I’m saying this but he’s right. We need to focus on the issue at hand.”
“I’m more than willing to focus,” Rusty said. “But she needs to shut up back there and quit her banging.”
“We grabbed her, shoved her into the trunk of a Buick and took off. I can kind of see her point of view.”
“Yeah, but I can’t take that kind of racket. I have a sensitivity to loud noises.”
“You’re a security guard! You spend your free time at the shooting range!”
“Yeah, but I don’t listen to constant banging sounds. That just grates on my nerves.”
“You know what you need, dude?” Bennet said. “Meditation. I have this like meditation app on my phone…”
“Are you both nuts?!” Gary yelled. “I just want to get out of this tourist trap and head back to the cabin! I don’t care if she’s banging on the trunk or not!”
“It’s annoying,” Rusty said. “Just saying.”
“Okay. There’s the turnoff to the highway.”
“Are those cops up there?” Bennet asked.
“Probably just pulled someone over for speeding.”
“No, seriously, dude. Those are cops.”
Gary studied the situation ahead of them. Bennet was right. There were several cops at the turnoff.
“My life is over,” Gary groaned.
“Calm down, dude,” Bennet said. “I’ll handle the situation.”
“No! You won’t handle the situation. I am going to handle the situation! You suck at talking to cops!”
“Who said I was going to talk to the cops?”
“You did! You said you were going to handle the situation!”
“Oh, no, I meant I’d deal with you know who in the trunk.”
“Wow! I feel so much better about this!”
“Dude she’s going to pull that glow in the dark emergency thingy in the back there and jump out the minute we stop the car if you don’t let me handle the situation. I’m great with chicks.”
“Is that why you’re all by yourself in a cabin in a resort ghost town, hos?” Rusty asked.
“I’m alone by choice, bro. And you seriously should try that meditation app.”
“Oh, man!” Gary said. “They’re stopping cars. They are seriously stopping cars!”
“Chill out, dude. I’ll talk to her.” Bennet turned towards the back and said, “Hey, Rune.”
“Screw you!” Rune shouted from the trunk smashing her foot into the back of Bennet’s seat.
“Hey, Rune. My name is Bennet…”
“I don’t care what your name is!”
“Look, we’ve got a snafu here.”
“Not my problem.”
“We’re not out to hurt you.”
“You kidnapped me!”
“But you’ve put my buddy here in danger and we need you to help us get him out of it.”
“Nothing’s in it for me.”
“We will get you to wherever you are running to if you help us out.”
“Good luck with that.”
“No questions asked.”
“You think I’m going to tell you where I’m going?”
“We’re the best chance you’ve got of getting there.”
“No, I’m the best chance of me getting there.”
“She’s stopping us,” Gary said to Rusty.
The sinewy armed police officer with the smart short haircut motioned for Gary to roll down his window.
“Good morning, officer,” Gary said.
“Good morning, sir,” the female police officer said. “We’re going to have to ask you to go up here and turn around and head back into Leavenworth.”
Gary’s brow furrowed in confusion. “Pardon me, officer. Why do we need to do that?”
“Forest fire. It’s surrounding Leavenworth.”
“Sir, just pull up here, turn around, head back into town and stay there.”
“How long do they think the fire will last?”
“As far as we’ve been told, a couple of days.”
“A couple of days?!”
“Yes, sir. Head straight up that way and follow the orange cones.”

STREAM OF THE WEEK: BULLY (2011)-Netflix
In the United States region best called The Devil Belt where Christianity is preached but not always practiced lies a searing burning hell known as the public school system. This is an accurate fly on the wall documentary that simply sits back and lets the subjects of the movie present their different forms of evil. One of the critiques of this movie amongst critics is that the bullies in the film are not interviewed or asked why they do what they do. Allow me to retort. Bullies are often psychopaths or those with ASPD better known as Anti-Social Personality Disorder. This used to be called Sociopathy. As psychopaths are highly manipulative compulsive liars having them talk to the camera is not nearly as effective as if you study them in the wild. If you would kindly turn to page 155 of, Please Understand Me Character & Temperament Types by David Keirsey & Marylyn Bates you will see that there is a section called Temperament in Teaching where the authors did a study of the California school system. There is an eerie distribution of personality types:
SCHOOL PERSONAL: STUDENTS & GENERAL POPLULATION: DIFFERENCE:
SJ: 56% 38% +16%
NF: 36% 12% +24%
NT: 6% 12% -6%
SP: 2% 38% -36%
Because SJ’s who notoriously embrace institutions, tradition, and bureaucracy dominate the school personal population they do not see any reason why their stoic teaching or administrative philosophies which are based in the past and steeping in tradition should be questioned because after all everyone thinks just like them, right?
Now turn to page 208 of, Please Understand Me II Temperament Character Intelligence by David Keirsey. This section is called The Pygmalion Project. Or in other words who is sexually attracted to whom? You’ll find that per Keirsey’s studies although there are no right or wrong attractions, people most commonly pair up based on personality. People are drawn to what Jung called their shadow. You might think of it as an equal opposite. Taking this into account what divides people most is not extroversion vs introversion but rather sensory vs intuition. Sensory is attracted to Sensory and Intuition is attracted to Intuition. Goes like this:
ESTJ + ISFP ENFJ + INTP
ESFJ + ISTP ENFP + INTJ
ISTJ + ESFP INFJ + ENTP
ISFJ + ESTP INFP + ENTJ
A while back an innovated blogger did an experiment where she asked people on the internet to take both the LSPR (which measures psychopathy) and the MBTI (which measures personality) and send her the scores. She then laid out a grid of the results. Here is what she found:
As you can see the personality types which are more likely to have ASPD and psychopathy are more to the right and the ones who are less likely to have psychopathy are to the left. Knowing that psychopaths are always extroverted we can eliminate the INTP, INTJ, ISTJ and the ISTP from the equation leaving the ENTP the ESTP the ENTJ and the ESTJ. Also, all the types that are F or feeling personality types are on the left and the T or thinking personality types are all on the right.
So, if the Pygmalion project is correct and SJ is attracted to SP, and Keirsey & Bate’s study of school personal is right and SJs are the dominate personality type amongst educators and administrators who do you think the educational staff is going to reward? Themselves and their shadow. That means that NF and NT children are the most compromised students in school. They are outnumbered in the general population by a ratio of approximately 76% to 24%, and they are the least attractive to the education majority and other students at large. That makes ESTPs and ESTJs the most likely bullies on school campuses followed by a smaller population of ENTP and ENTJ bullies. This isn’t to say the introverted INTP, INTJ, ISTJ and ISTP couldn’t be bullies as well but they are less likely because of their introversion. Nor is it to say every ESTP, ESTJ, ENTP and ENTJ is a bully, but those are the personality types with a predilection towards callous behavior. In other words, educators consciously and unconsciously gravitate towards kids who are like themselves and kids with personalities they want to have sex with. Thus, educators enable bullies.
Watch the scene where the principal (an obvious SJ) forces the two boys who have had yet another confrontation to shake hands. The real bully (ESTP) gets off Scott-free and she further victimizes the other kid (NT) who is more intelligent than she is and argues the flaws in her logic. Why? Because she wants to go to bed with the bully. And so do all the other SJ teachers and SJ students who become part of the child killing machine. Also, bullies will gravitate towards students they are sexually attracted to and bully them as well making ISFJ and ISFP potential targets for ESTP and ESTJ bullies and INFJ and INFP potential targets for ENTP and ENTJ bullies.
Because school systems are made up primarily of SJ (logistical) personalities and NF (diplomatic) personalities you have not employed personalities who readily recognize a dangerous person. SP (tactical) and NT (strategic) personalities will much more readily size up a threat because they have a unique internal understanding of their own kind because of their strongest aptitudes. If you employed more non-psychopathic/ASPD SP and NT personalities in schools and provided them proper training, there is a chance they would recognize and ferret out bullies faster than those who are currently the majority.
And you thought sex and violence had nothing to do with the education system. Think again.
